    Under The Surgeon's Knife...

    If you had the money and opportunity to have cosmetic surgery, what part of your body would you have changed?

    I wouldn't. There is nothing physically so wrong with me that I would need or want to physically alter. If I can not do so with diet and exercise then I won't do so. The only exception to this would be having my teeth redone.

    I have a nasty scar on my left knee from a gun shot wound that I got when I was 13. I think I would have a scar revision or something..but the scar reminds me how lucky I was and how precious life is.

    i don't really believe in having plastic surgery to change ones appearance. I say this even with my jew-nose that some think i should fix (and i wish other things were formed differently), but i think that we were genetically meant to look a certain way, and i by any means don't want to change how nature intended for me to look. Now we do have some power in changing our physique (being in shape or overweight), and think voluntary surgery is wrong (IMHO), but i don't show disdain for those who elect to get/have it done.

    I think that we are all beautiful in our own uniqueness and while yes physical attractiveness is important to some extent, i think inner beauty is important too. So Maybe voluntary plastic surgery is to compensate in physical appearance for the beauty they lack on the inside.

    I did have a procedure March 2009. I'm very pleased with the results and my self esteem has gone up in direct proportion.

    The cost I do not look at it, as the before and after pictures always get the same response: "wow".

    The initial cost is shocking, however; I have become business colleagues with the surgeon and his partner surgeon that he takes care of me. I'm having laser CO2 rejuvination on my face this Tuesday 7/20.
    I know I'll look like a human tomato for a bit, but it will help erase the damage of mother nature and bad genes.

    I did the excercise as much as I could, my skin wouldn't retract, so, I had it removed. My sister will need to undergo similar surgery because of her gastric bypass surgery she had almost 2 years ago (november 200icon_cool.gif.

    If anyone has questions, send me a message, I would be happy to tell my story.

    The hook in my nose, but then I sing semi-professionally, so I don't know if that would affect my sound production.

    cold saidThe thing that disturbs me about (elective) plastic surgery, other than the obvious risks and morality of altering your appearance for merely cosmetic ends, is the idea that:

    If you had surgery, and someone finds you attractive/compliments you on your appearance - they aren't really complimenting you, they are complimenting the acid injected into your smile lines, the toxin paralysing your muscles and the surgeons handiwork in constructing an image of 'beauty'...

    There's a lot I wish were different, but would I change it? Nope.



    Well said, i mean, do i really have to change my appearance for someone else? i dont think so....I like the way i am and wont change a thing, well maybe run a little more and drop some booty mass, i have a huge butt, i need a normal size, so i guess running should help....Sorry doc, i can handle this on my own...

    I wouldn't change a thing!

    I think plastic surgery is a miracle for individuals who were born with serious defects, or those who have suffered burns or other terrible injuries to their faces and other parts of their bodies. But for superficial, cosmetic reasons, it's not for me.

    I believe that if you've put in the effort to change yourself naturally (and we're talking >2 years of hardcore work with blood, sweat, and tears) and you're not getting the results you desire, you are free to engage in whatever course of action you deem necessary to attain what you feel is pleasing to you.

    I've undergone 5 surgeries, 4 elective (2 being revisionary) and 1 necessary and it's made a HUGE difference for my self-confidence. When I make the conscious decision to go under the knife, I'm not doing it for my non-existent partner or my friends. I'm doing it because I want to do it, because I know that after the recovery period, I will feel much better about how I look AND how I feel. After my initial Sx, the difference in my confidence level was most certainly noticeable and people commented not on my physical form, but on how I carried myself differently. Would I change my mind about doing it again? Most certainly not. The revisions after that have all been to correct underlying issues that weren't able to be addressed the first/previous times.

    And as you know, confidence is a virtue many of you boys love icon_razz.gif

    i don't think i would change anything right now, but ask me again in 10 years. i think if you want it go for it. doing it for others would be a mistake, but if it makes you feel better about yourself and builds confidence then it's all good.

    Nothing structural, just scar revision which would also help with anti-aging.

    A persons looks are a composite of all their individual features and when you start to isolate elements of those features and alter them it throws everything else off. I kind of like exaggerated facial features anyway, like a big nose, prominent lips, square jaw and even big ears.

    Me? Nothing. Even when I was younger it would have taken a whole hell of lot of work to make me even remotely "handsome" in a classic sense lol. Besides, then no one would come up to me in the hardware store and ask me for advice on their projects. I have a characters face and that's fine. Big goofy British teeth. Bad Irish skin. Big nose. BIG ears. It's all OK.

    If I could have one thing back it would be my red/blond whiskers. Miss my beard.

    Now if someone could wave a magic wand and make my joint and back pain go away that would be awesome.

    I do know a few guys who could use a scrotum tuck though. Way too much slack in their sac.

    The premise that a surgeon can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear is very highly not correct. IF they are good they can only enhance what features you have.

    There is the 2D and 3D version of yourself. People look at the 3D version while you see mostly the 2D version when you look in a mirror and pics.

    I prefer the 3D version of a person and try to enhance or maintain what was given me 60 yrs ago by exercise. You are making corrections and changes to your body all the time so if you use surgery then great! Just be realistic

    People get in trouble when they take in to a surgeon a picture and say I want to look like this. UGH!!icon_eek.gif
