I just had major surgery on my leg--they had to pin it back together after I went water skiing a couple of weeks ago. And I had this crazy thought, while I'm under and they're taking care of that, I could just have my nose done. Ha. The things we come up with.

My nose is the only thing I'd change. I broke it twice as a teen playing sports and I have this weird bump that's really noticeable (at least to me).

I always said 'no way' until relatively recently. But then again, i was always pretty happy with the way i look. Not that i'm a supermodel or anything, but i'm happy and healthy and it shows. Anyhow, after wearing glasses for 20 years, i decided to save up for corrective surgery. When i had enough money, i went for a consultation with a really great surgeon who told me that my corneas were too thin for lasik. I was disappointed, but decided to try contacts instead. Well, they work fine for me.
BUT, after wearing glasses for years, i was shocked to see huge dark circles under my eyes. I drank more water, started eating even more healthily, and purchased some touche eclat. However, it had no effect, and 3 months later i still had the circles. Visiting my doctor, i found out that it was under-eye bags causing the circles.
So, after thinking about it long and hard (another 3 months) i decided to see a plastic surgeon. To make a long story short, i had the bags removed. The circles are gone too, and it was the best money i ever spent. I don't look younger, or prettier; i just look the way i thought i'd look without my glasses.
Don't know if i'd have anything else done; but i've found that you can never say never!

Yes. I actually just had lipo of my hips, [censored], thighs and knees (Three Weeks ago). At first I had a hard time justifying the cost but I talked it over with my husband and he said if it was going to make me feel better then I should do it. So I did.

I had wanted breast implants but after reading an article of reasons not to get one I decided I never will. I am happy with what I have.

I read recently that Tara Reid had breast implants and lipo. She said she had to have surgery to fix what the first doctor messed up. Even the people we use to judge ourselves are not happy with their bodies.

I have an appointment (on Halloween no less!) for a consult about some plastic surgery. Most of it has to do with the major amount of weight I lost due to my gastric bypass. I want to have my arms worked on where I have so much skin hanging (brachioplasty) a tummy tuck, and a rhinoplasty just because I've never really like my nose, LOL!

I don't think I'm going to need the procedure called a panniculectomy - the all around "belt" tuck, my skin around my waist and back has bounced back fairly well, but after three kids and losing almost 100 lbs my stomach just is hanging. But my arms are the absolute worst - I think I might could fly if I tried really hard! <img src="/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

I can definitely see having surgery to get rid of all the excess skin -- good luck with the appointment!

Dr Phil did a really good show on plastic surgery, and he listed the 'healthy' reasons for having something done. Now of course I can't remember the best reason -- did anyone see the show? Something about doing it only for yourself, and not because others want you to. He gave another great critieria, which of course I can't remember right now!

You are getting all this done together?

I definitely would and plan to as soon as I can afford it. After having 3 children all weighing over 9lbs and being a small framed person, I was left with a little more extra skin on my tummy than I would like. I lost all my baby weight, I run 2 miles 4 times a week, I eat healthy, but the extra skin and stretch marks are still there. I feel that I've done everything in my power through eating right and exercise to try to bounce my body back, but the tummy is still there. I don't ever plan to look like a model. That's not my intentions. Plastic surgery is something I plan to do for myself to make myself feel better.
