    Whether it's Botox or teeth whitening or a brow-lift, what have you had done that you are pleased with? Any procedures gone wrong?

    Only thing I've had done is teeth whitening . I was happy with the results. I've never heard of any problems with it except some people seem to have increased sensitivity in their teeth after teeth whitening .

    The only procedure I'd even half seriously consider at this point is maybe some Restilyn or other filler and I'm not sure if I'm ready to go down that road yet (or ever).

    I had a septorhinoplasty at age 26 to correct a tourtuous septum that plagued me with a and lifetime of frequent nosebleeds.
    While he was there, my very skilled specialist reshaped my nose to "aesthetic optimum" proportions and angles to change the profile yet still look completely "natural". While I would have chosen perhaps a narrower bridge it would not really "fit" my face and would have been noticeable.

    By that measure, I am very happy with the results. Despite looking quite diferent now in profile, it has been a surprise to anyone that I ever had it changed ( those people who liked to say they could always spot a nosejob. )
    It helps if you know their reputations, or their to previous clients.
    then allow him or to use his best discretion and cosmetic skill.

    Yeah I had the nose job under deviated septum pretense when I was 19, which I should have just had a regular nose job because I feel that butcher jacked my nose. I still plan to reverse it at some point.


    On a more positive note I had hair restoration last March. Best thing EVER.

    Get whatever you want done. It's never gonna change YOU on the inside.
    I remember getting lipo done at 19, and my doctor requested clearance from my psychiatrist along with the procedure. Of course he got it, and that was definitely one of the best things I could've ever done.
    It didn't change ME, but it changed the way I look at myself. I'll get anything done as long as it keeps me looking youngicon_smile.gif

    Just do your research first.

    next month some botox and then sculptra.

    i won't do much botox, just enough to soften the forehead a little,
    and sculptra is very good for men after 40, 50, 60 who do a lot of endurance sports as we lose pretty much all our collagen in the face. Sculptra restores it and it stays for 2 years.

    At 29 I had a knot of varicose veins removed from my right calf area. My doctor was awesome and used a procedure that he helped develop, called VNUS Closure. I had that done and an ambulatory phlebectomy. Almost 10 years later, the good results have remained and I couldn't be happier.

    I was very mad that I had them in the first place, and they are not very common in men, but I have seen some guys at the gym with them. They look like anacondas. Mine were never that bad, but it was reassuring to see that even guys can get them. Wow, varicose veins suck!

    Aww thanks :3 I mean yeah I wasn't by any stretch of the word disfigured, I just have two bumps on one side of my nose that I don't have on the other, for some bizarre unexplained reason, so I have two completely different profiles, which is of course far from the end of the world.

    Lipo is for lazy people with no motivation or drive.

    It's actually effective the most for the complete opposite. Even if you work extremely hard on your diet and exercise routines you could still be genetically predisposed to hold on to fat pockets you will never naturally lose. Lipo is best served in these cases. If you don't diet or exercise and have lipo you'll gain it back (not exactly in the same part because of the issue of fat cell elimination, but eat enough and you'll fill out those same areas again eventually).

    Hmmm...I read an article about how gay males make up a sizeable portion of the population that has some type of cosmetic surgery.

    Hmmm....it will be interesting when I get to do my surgery rotations in third year...and selective in 4th year

    Exactly. My doctor never would've done it if I wasn't running 45 miles/week with weight training 3xWk. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

    Ignorance? Bliss? Huh? What? I was making a sweeping generalization.... I can understand it for those few that actually put forth a good deal of effort- diet and exercise- but the others...... lazy.

    Plastic surgery for vanity is pretty sad. How could anyone's self esteem be THAT low?

    A more appropriate term is misinformed. Too many people see being overweight (or rather, "overfat", which is a more useful term), as a "problem" you can "fix". "Oh I'm fat, I'll just remove the fat, and then I won't be fat". Excess body weight is a symptom of a nutritional and physical activity imbalance (moreso nutrition but they all correlate). If you don't change your eating and exercise habits the lipo is just a giant waste of money. Incidentally this applies to most cosmetic procedures. "Oh I'm unhappy because of this, I'll just change it and then I'll be happy", which is just as fallacious.

    I had teeth whitening and it just didn't work. After the 7th tube of hydrogen peroxide I gave up.

    I don't know if this counts as cosmetic, but I'm in my fourth round of acutane. Chronic acne runs in my family.

    I also had acne cysts removed from my chest. The removal itself left me with bruised scars that after 2 years are still a bit purple. I've been using intense pulsed light therapy for over a year to tone down this color, but the results are very slow to show. These purpled scars leave me self conscious when I have to take my shirt off and imply I always have to edit every shirtless photo I do. At least the guys I go out with don't seem to care as much.

    I recently had a nose job (cosmetic). main pic is the after. I'm certain I will not consider any other cosmetic surgery.
