    Hey! I'd like to know what you guys, who pay a lot of attention to your looks (as I do), think about plastic surgery. Would you like to get some work done? Do you think it is only for those who are superficial?

    -For those who underwent plastic surgery: Are you satisfied? Would you do it again? Did it change something in the way you perceive yourself? Do you talk openly about it?

    Thanks boys!

    Yes. Rhinoplasty. If that's shallow, then *shrugs*

    It's a childhood dream and I don't care what people think of it. I just want to be more confident about an area I had always been self-conscious about.

    my thoughts are..if you are not content in your looks..it WILL affect your emotional being in a negative way..so if you are able to, I say go for iticon_exclaim.gif

    Exactly. It's a quick way to exorcise insecurities. Just don't let it turn into habit.

    I've thought about getting my nose done, my ears pinned back a bit and my right eye fixed so its not droopy

    But, at the end of the day, I look at my massively wide nose thats far to big for my face and my ears that seem to stick out to much and my right eye that droops a little and I think... there part of me.

    I cant actually look at my face and see a different nose on me..

    So no, I wouldn't do it, I'll live with ma flaws icon_biggrin.gif

    At the gym I go to there are heaps of people that have plastic surgery and in the majority of cases they don't look better or younger, they just look like someone who has had plastic surgery.

    But I do know one girl that had a huge nose and had in downsized. In the end she looked brilliant and natural - a true Cinderella transformation. I think certain procedures work better than others. Anything that lifts and tightens just looks weird.

    plastic surgery is like taking steroids
    it's ok until people notice that you've done it

    there's nothing as bad as seeing a guy who LOOKS like he's had face work done icon_eek.gif

    Plastic surgery is great if there is a real problem
    but the face lift thing not really
    guys look good with a few wrinkles
    makes them look more rugged

    I thought about getting my entire face done....but that was when i was younger and was dealing with low self esteem. I would never get any work done on my face, im happy the way I look now. I grew into my face/head. I thought about getting calf implant but decided not to and just keep working on my legs.

    I can see (and practice) doing my best to keep myself in good shape, but surgery is something else. You can end up turning into something far worse than the original.....

    Plastic surgery is overrated in my opinion. Just look at all the Italian celebrities who underwent plastic surgery, they look worse!

    I agree with what has been said over and over above me here.....which is to be very careful when considering plastic surgery. If it is necessary to correct a problem, sure - go ahead and get the best surgeon you can find. But there is a guy who I think once looked great - before surgery - and now he looks "different" and that is Bruce Jenner. If I was in his shoes, I would wish they could put everything back!

    I dunno... sometimes I still think about getting braces. But I never have the cash for it.

    I know one guy who keeps mentioning "pec implants" and it just drives me right into drill sergeant mode. (Shut up, drop, and give me twenty!)

    I have not had any, but i can say i do like it and i have considered it. I will probably get some in the middle of next year, maybe winter. I am thinking of getting a noise job, and possibly some chest implants. The noise for sure, i can always work on the chest. I always admire a person who gets what they want done, and looks good. You never ever wanna look as if you actually had anything done.

    I've thought about getting some work done on my ear..it's sticks out a bit more than I like. I don't have any problem with it. I support people feeling the best about themselves as possible.

    I thought about getting plastic surgery to make my face look more chiseled but at the end of the day I'm happy for what I got.

    the only thing i ever considered getting done was leg extension surgery. the only problem with it is that the procedure is still very young, and i don't want to be a cosmetic surgery horror story.

    I believe (although, correct me if I am wrong) it is a very painful thing to have done.

    They break yours legs then put pins into the bones, cable them up to a brace outside of the body and then apply downward pressure on the pins, keeping the bones slightly separated.

    During the time though the person is incapable of walking and is apparently in a great deal of discomfort.

    However things might have changed since I watched it on tv years ago.
