    If something about your body bothers you and it can be corrected, why not go for it. It's your choice.

    mickeytopogigio saidSeveral of my friends have had reconstructive surgery, making up for car accidents, birth defects, deviated septums, etc. God bless 'em, what'ya gonna do.

    The boob job friends of mine needed the surgery. As in, they lived with crippling shame about their tiny top half and now feel great.

    But the aging beauties--men and women--I've never seen turn out well. I always thought they were so beautiful, and I adored their aging faces. But apparently they couldn't see that. They could only see the not-young person in the mirror. Too bad.

    If you're upset with the sagging in your face, Jesus, reconsider having surgery. That surprised, stretched-vinyl look just won't bring back your youth. I've never felt as though someone "looked younger" when they got nipped. They always look older (and creepily smoother). Want to add five years to how old I think you are? Get a face lift. Yuck.

    The problem is that people don't address the environmental and healthcare concerns that caused their skin to age in the first place. If they had taken care of their skin their whole lives with a dialy regimen, then they'd have healthy skin as they aged. Unfortunately, we have whole generations that baked in the sun and stripped their skin of youth by over washing and not properly moisturizing or treating their skin with essential oils and vitamins. Basically, the lack of skincare is the equivalent of not brushing your teeth, and plastic surgery looks as phony as dentures.

    Nothing wrong with correcting something you don't like about yourself if you have the money and can afford the down time. I know some women that got face lifts one with really good results.

    Meh, to each their own. it's amazing how expensive plastic surgery is. I do kind of chuckle at the folks who go for the Barbie/Ken doll look. but hey, if that's what they wanted and they're happy - good for them.

    I often wanted skin abrasion done to remove the scarring I have from acne. Not sure if that's considered plastic surgery or just "a procedure". But as I got older, the scarring became less and less on it's own. It's still there, but nowhere near as bad as it used to be.

    They have had a lot of improvements with that using lasers. Considering a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon can do that, I don't know how much of that is plastic surgery. You can see improvements with microdermabrasion and retin-A but may not go deep enough. I have my own microdermabrasion machine since I am a licensed cosmetologist and people with a lower license can do the same procedure.

    Ha, I used Retin-A for years as a teenager. didn't really do much except stain my clothes and dry my skin out.

    You use the Retin-A in conjunction with micro-dermabrasion. I have a diamond dermabrasion machine, I don't see the point of paying an aestitician when I have a cosmetology license. Unlike laser skin resurfacing, there is no downtime. I have heard different things. The doctor I spoke to said a year of those treatments equals laser skin resurfacing but from what I heard it may just not go deep enough.

    pazzy saidwrong, breh. just plain wrong.

    if you have that type of mentality, you will NEVER be happy with yourself or for that matter date anybody because you're already shutting yourself down. until you know for sure as in someone tells you straight up that you're not their type, you can't assume that you're NOT what someone would go for. you do NOT need a certain look to get someone. all you have to do is be yourself because that's all you can be. some people will like you. some won't. sometimes, you actually have to put in some work because some guys are shy where they like you but are scared to let you know. do the approaching, numbers game or whatever. you CAN'T force people to like you or dislike you. all you can do is put yourself out there and see what happens. i know this for a fact because as i said, i've seen it, witnessed it shown to me by others and etc when i would have the same type of thinking like how you and some other guys have and am surprised that you guys that are older than me would say something like that. you guys should know. it's basically life and survival skills. nobody is perfect.

    there is someone or some people out there for everybody. it's whether you leave yourself open to get them. don't doubt yourself.


    Pazzy, it's obvious our premises are polar opposites of each other. It's futile to discuss. Your beliefs are providential ("something for everybody") and ascetic (looks should not matter)

    Convergence of tastes, leagues, competition, inequality, privilege, doom... That's the world as it is and I'm perfectly happy in this arena because I know the rules. Many Christian zealots can't understand how Atheists can be happy without a god and your projection that one will be "shutdown" and "never happy (...)" with my values is no different.

    I've been using retinol for a couple of months to get rid of some acne scars i had on my face. I wasn't expecting it to be that effective but it really did work on me (a lot!) pretty much no scars at all now + it gave my skin better complexion, tone & texture (much smoother)

    i think results depend a lot on the percentage of retin-A your cream has. some have about 0.01% in them. I got one that's 10% retin-A.

    continuity is important. you have to use it every single night.

    also I apply a serum (Acqualia Thermal by Vichy) during the day and I clean my face with proper products too.

    you gotta keep your face hydrated like an anus you're about fuck.

    It also depends on the types of scars. Deep tissue scarring like I have from cystic acne is a lot different than minor scarring from ordinary pimples. but everyone's body is certainly different!
