Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

I have enough of Islam on the forum, so here is my question of the day;

What do you think about cosmetic/plastic surgery?

Want it? Like it? Had it? Dislike it?

If your wife comes to you tomorrow and tells you she wants a Boob job, are you going to support her decision?

If your best friend wants to have a facelift, will you support his/her decision? Nose job? Lipo?

Will you considered it yourself?

Yes I would consider it and I had a small correction done but nobody notices, I do

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

I would be too scared it would go wrong!!
I do know someone who had their hooded eyes corrected and it has made a huge difference to their confidence. They also look fantastic and it has taken years off.
I think you have to know when to stop as people seem to get addicted and then they have too much done and then they look freaky

Reconstructive surgery is an amazing thing when it can help a person regain some of their quality of life. If I ever had something that changed how I lived dramatically, I would have it fixed. Small little things can help a lot.

I don't think I'd ever want a boob job. It just looks too wrong to me. Natural is better.

If my friend wanted surgery, I would make sure she was doing it for herself and not out of reasons of hiding who she was.

Plastic surgery I would liken to orthodontia; it can help a person out a lot, but should only be done on people who actually need it.

My best friend can bloody do what she wants as long as she is aware of the possible risks and did as much research into the procedure as possible. I am not about to judge her decisions for wanting plastic surgery. Kudos if it boosts her self esteem.

Having said that, I used to scoff at it when I was younger but now, I might as well - nothing freakish but probably some discreet work down the road just to 'maintain and 'misrepresent' *ahem* my age

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

There's a fine line between 'essential' and 'non-essential' surgery - we have a family member who was in a nasty car accident and his 'non-essential' cosmetic surgery included opening his nose up so he can actually breathe again...

The best skin-cancer op my mum had (she has had three) was done by a 'cosmetic' surgeon. her one-sided facelift lasted about 6 months (removing skin from previous grafts on one temple and realigning the skin around her eye)...so I have to say a lot of skin surgery is short-lived - skin is elastic...

It can go too far, especially when it defies the laws of physics:

Actually, the gal pictured in the article doesn't fit what I'd think is "too far" by any means when it comes to plastic surgery... boobs or otherwise.

Meanwhile, this brought back some memories for me:
Quote:
The silicone boob implants caused Alexandra to lose her balance as she tried to walk in her high heels - tearing a ligament and ending up in hospital.
While I've had no plastic surgery, so it isn't that sort of memory, I do remember having to deal with a sever shift in balance when I suddenly went directly from flat to a B-cup when I was about 12. I fell and skinned my knees quite a few times playing soccer and basketball that year.


So far as the topic goes though...

The only thing I would want, even only as a little dream... nothing bigger or smaller (diet / exercise will take care of that), I'd want my "girls" back up where they were when I was 17.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

I think cosmetic/plastic surgery is and should always be a 100% personal thing... and it it helps someone feel better about themselves in addressing something significant to them then i'm all for it. I did see an interesting documentary by Louis Theroux though and it was sad to see some people who were already beautiful become obsessed with it, continually getting things done that were clearly down to wanting to achieve their idea of perfection, yet never being satisfied. That's the dark side to it, I guess.

But yeah... fake boobs don't look too great when they go bigger than a D.

I know two ladies who have had boob jobs and the result is that their boobs look too big and artificial.

Please translate for the benefit of us unfamiliar with English and confused by the special terminology.

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).

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

you can always take a look at awfulplasticsurgery.com

I dye my hair and wear makeup, try to take care of my skin... as I get even older, I might have a tweak here or there. I don't know if I'd have something as invasive as surgery though.

When I hear of 18 year olds having boob jobs for graduation presents, I wonder that the money might be better spent on counseling. At the same time, appearance is very important to people, and who am I to judge.

BTW, Botox was first very popular in places like Los Angeles where middle aged attorneys in the midst of negotiations (probably entertainment negotiations) used it to keep a straight face.

Yeah, it was good wasn't it? I felt terrible sorry for that sad woman who kept getting more and more plastic surgery to please her man and try to keep him from leaving her..

LT is very good at getting the truth out of people.

Re: Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery

Many women refer to their breasts as "the girls". As do bra fitters in the US, as in "You'd want your girls to be covered in there"
