Would you ever consider having cosmetic surgery? WHY?   1 comment

English: Walter Yeo, the first person to receive plastic surgery, before (left) and after(right) skin flap surgery performed by Sir Harold Delf Gillies in 1917. The pictures of Walter’s face before the surgery are blurry and hard to come by. In the tragic accident he was recorded as having lost both his upper and lower eyelids. The surgery was some of the first to use a skin flap from an unaffected area of the body and paved the way for a sudden rash of improvements in this field. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 I don´t know, I always think about it,sometimes I think I would never do it because this is the way I am and i should accept it, but sometimes i think that change a few things I don´t like would make me happier, so why not…
I need to decide what I think about it, but I can´t .

I see both excellent and terrible results of the plastic on the moviestars and celebrities, so I can make the conclusion that no matter how expensive the services are, and how famous a surgeon is – there is always a risk to spoil your appearance irrevocably. So, no no no. Never.
In Colombia there are great plastic surgeons who perform daily operations to improve the physical appearance of both men and women. Its cost is relatively low, and very satisfactory results for those who want to look better and increase their self-esteem.
Due to a pregency that ripped my skin in one day from fluid (a ten pound gain in that one day) I have tons of loose skin and stretch marks –I look like a wild animal got a hold of me and ripped my skin apart.  My Dr. suggested strongly that I have plastic surgery as all the muscles in my stomach area are frayed like a rope.  As the years have passed my muscles have become even weaker and Drs. have told me that no amount of exercise will repair them. I have a lot of back trouble and pain partially due to the extra weight of skin hanging on my stomach. The embarrasment of people asking if I’m pregnant, and absolutelly not being able to buy any clothes to fit me is horrible. My breast are small making it even worse. Even though I also have other medical problems which cause me to not be as active as I previously was (fibromylgia and arthritis) I would like to feel like other women and be able to enjoy my body and not be embarrassed by it. Second on my list would be to have my breast enhanced and lifted. I am grateful to have a body that is alive and in somewhat working order but this would be my dream to feel like a normal woman must feel about her body. I’m sorry about such a long and personal answer, but thanks for letting me answer with my true feelings.
