What would you fix if you had the money? Personally, I'd opt for a facelift and a nose job. What about you?
Ordinarily, for purely cosmetic purposes, I think it is a waste of money, and any surgery can have unintended negative risks.
If a person has a congenital or inflicted deformity, or some other health reason, cosmetic or restorative surgery may be appropriate.
I agree about the unintended consequences. I had an emergency surgery when I was in my 20s for a burst appendix that turned into a three-week ordeal. My lung was accidentally punctured by a doctor inserting an IV, which resulted in a collapsed lung; the treatment for that was excruciatingly painful. Then, I contracted a bacterial infection that resulted in an obstructed intestinal tract; I won't even describe the treatment for that one! Trust me, it was bad.
Anyway, I will not have any kind of surgery ever again, unless it's necessary for my survival or quality of life.
No change needed, required, warranted or desired.
Well I love me just the way I am, but if I'm lucky enough to get old and flabby I'd definitely get work done to make me look younger.
You are like Greece, baby! You only get more interesting with age!
Ha ha. Well, we're not all ageless and timeless like you.
I have considered plastic surgery but going through with it is a different matter. So I'm leaning towards "aging gracefully" although I can't vouch much for graceful part.
Well, you do have wrinkles, but I think yours are pretty much set in stone.
on a serious note.. the doctor said if i tried to extend it any more, it could be a tripping hazzard
We'll all be doing jumping jacks with your ding-dong! lol
Absolutely nothing. I'm perfect, just the way I am. (Others may not agree, but I'm content with that.)
I met her in January. She is hilarious and admits she is the butt of every plastic surgery gone bad joke and the poster child of every pro and con for and against it. She knows who she is and she is a problem child.
I love her. Even with all the surgical nightmares.
I would never consider it, except, as Rochelle mentioned, if I had some kind of accident or affliction which greatly affected my appearance. For one thing, I am far too squeamish to ever agree to any medical procedure that wasn't important for my health!
I appreciate that many of you are young, firm and gorgeous, but what about in say...twenty years when gravity has done its thang on your double chin, boobs and stomach - what about then?
No never, Elayne. I absolutely know that I would be terrified to go ahead with such a thing! But even without that, I wouldn't really want to. There are risks involved, for one thing. I would prefer to age gracefully and naturally - but fighting all the way with ordinary beauty products!
I'm not old (in my late thirties) but I have definitely noticed within the last few years that I have more wrinkles appearing than I used to, especially near my eyes. And my stomach has definitely not recovered after I had my last child even though that was more than two years ago. I don't like the idea of being wrinkly and saggy one day, but I like the idea of surgery even less. It's just life, and it's who you are. Beauty comes from within, and even really, really old people can be beautiful.
In twenty years I will be 88-- ask me again, then.
In 20 years? I'll have been dead for about 11 years or so. At that time, it might be required, warranted, but not desired.
i would like a mini-facelift to get rid of jowls and frown lines, but I HATE needles. (I'm 54.)

Do you believe that plastic surgery is a necessity or just plain stupid vanity?I think that the only reason for plastic surgery is a car accident or a burn victim that has lost part of thier face etc..otherwise why get cut if you don't really need it? is it really a necessity to look all tight and...

In a recent video on yahoo, a couple of parents pay to have plastic surgery done on their daughter, to avoid having her get bullied at school about her ears. By the way, she's only 7 years old too. Personally, I don't even have an opinion on this, as I can understand the logic. ...

What are your views on aging women, aging gracefully and plastic surgery?
by realtalk247 4 years ago
What does it mean? Is it okay? Everyone makes improvements and gets a nip/tuck/suck etc if they can afford to do so? So is there an extra underlined issue or implication for women of color who make drastic changes? Is it just a fixation with improving oneself or addiction to...

What do you think about plastic surgery done on girls so they look like dolls?I don't think it is even ethical to make plastic surgery to make someone look like a cartoon character. I would question mental health of those girls, but if it is already happening and it is, it's time to stop and...
