Many women refer to their breasts as "the girls". As do bra fitters in the US, as in "You'd want your girls to covered in there"
Many also name them. I never have, but I am quite attached to them (well, literally, yes, but also emotionally). I just like mine too much to hurt them by shoving silicone into them.

I wonder what percentage of boob jobs are tied together with other procedures, like liposuction, injections, tucks, etc. I bet that a lot of women go in for "package deals."

But what about male plastic surgery like getting face lifts, muscle implants, and tummy tucks? Would any of you men consider it? Or do you find it too unnatural?

I've never seen breast implants that look natural. Most plastic surgeons don't even bother if it isn't at least a D (at least the ones that I've seen).
One of my best friends got some done last year. I am no lesbian but they looked bloody fantastic - even from a girl's perspective. Didnt *ahem* feel too fake either - yes they looked that good (natural) that I just had to ask if I could feel them. I guess it really depends on the surgeon and how medically advanced they are? She got hers done in Korea.

Interesting article on the plastic surgery boom in Asia by the way.

I am vain. I have face surfacing (peeling, microabrasion, etc,) done. I go thrice a week to a gym and so do not need surgical corrections.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

My sister had her nose reshaped because she had a lump of bone over the bridge which she reckoned looked awful (I never really noticed it). Ironically, I am the one that has broken my nose after a windsurfing accident and has a need for surgery because one nostril doesn't work so well. I'm not bothered about the shape.

I wouldn't bother with plastic surgery - inner health is my priority.

Well, for now anyway...

Naaaahhhhh ... I'm comfortable in my own skin! That's who I am and if others don't like me because of some superficial issue (that's entirely in the eye of the beholder), well, I don't want them around!

As it happens, I'm a fine specimen of a man anyway, so I don't need all that slicing and dicing. 'Course, if I weren't, maybe things would be different.

The only thing I would consider is minor nose correction as I've always had a thing about the bump in the middle of my snozz. However i've lived with it this long so it's probably just wishful thinking, i'll likely never get it done.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

I think it's funny that people, myself included, often find flaws that no one else would even notice and just make that their "problem zone". Things like big ears, minute scars, dimpled chins can drive a person crazy, but no one else would ever notice them.

On another note, as was mentioned early with the article about Asian plastic surgery, a lot of things seem to be cultural: eyelids, noses, breasts, even circumcision and bound feet. In 10-20 years, who knows what new surgeries will be developed to make us more perfect. Toe lengthening/shortening? Ear shifting? Belly button repositioning? Only time will tell...

Hollywood and Paris dictate the present ideal. The Chinese ascendancy may result in the oriental look gaining favor.

I'd go for belly button reshaping - a pierced Belly button and pregnancy don't mix well.

The stretch marks I will wear like battle wounds, and be proud of (I say that now, see if I have the courage next summer )

What i don't like is those people on Embarrassing Bodies, a program that was on UK TV a while back, with stretch marks or wonky boobs or a thin wrinkle in the middle of their nose, but they still look better than me in the "before" picture

I guess some people have more money than cents (sic).

Oh, yes, there is where i'm from, the second to none place for plastic surgery. almost one of 3 women in seoul had at least 1 PS (usually eyes and nose..) when i entered the university, my parents asked me whether i'd like to have a PS for bigger eyes and a higher nose as a present...but i chose rather to have a laser op for my better eye-sight and no regrets.

but sometimes i imagine what if i had the ps at that time, haha.
It sounds stupid, but we are never satisfied with what we've got.

I think, the beauty is a sort of relative thing. my asian eyes are relatively advanteged in europe, but now i wish i just had bigger boob for a practical reason: to buy me pretty bras of various choices in europe.

I think she's minging. Is she really "ideal"?

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

Boob job... I wish!

They do amazing job now and they look very good! I would like to have it not because for others, not because I want to show off, but because when I look at myself, I'm wondering where they went....

I remember my nice B I had before the pregnancy... Now, I've been left with an A...

Lucky me, and Thank the big guy/girl/thing up there, they still where they suppose to be. But it's a mini version of what it was.

Vaginal rejuvenation! I heard about it. They make it more tight.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

Just remember all surgery carries risks. A friend of my father in law died during a nose job, only thing was she had not told her husband as it was to be a surprise. The first he knew about it was the call from the hospital telling him to get there as fast as he could.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

I don't know the details, my father in law was understandably upset so I did not want to ask questions. All I know is she was kept on life support until her husband could arrange a flight to get to her to say goodbye.

BTW I am not trying to say cosmetic surgery is bad, just be informed of the risks before you sign up. Informed decisions are what it is about.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

I know for a fact that boob jobs are more common than we'd think. It's not a movie star thing anymore

I'd dare say...... 4% of female EFers have had this done. That's 4 in 100, I think it would be easy to hit that, right?

Yesterday I saw a "Wall post" on my Facebook account of one friend congratulating another friend on her boob job and "would she be in around 3pm for her to come and have a look". Hope she didn't want to keep that one secret.
