I would, but there is a good chance I probably wont.

1. I hate surgery

2. I hate being a patient

The fact is I have horrible bunnions.  Every shoe purchase involves consideration of my bunnions.  If I haven't been motivated to get foot surgery then when will I ever get motivated to do plastic surgery?


I sort of think when I turn 45 I might consider plastic surgery but the fact is, bunnions first!

I'd have corrective surgery, as necessary after an accident or illness but not cosmetic surgery.  If you don't like the way I look, to heck with you if you can't take a joke,and who's asking you to look at me anyway?  I have always been plain and have no problem with it.  The people who matter to me don't mind in the least, so why should I?

I am acquainted with a number of people who have spent large fortunes on cosmetic surgery, but the changes were so subtle that they are almost completely unnoticable.  Those people feel much better, however, so I never point out that they look the same.  If it makes you feel better and you can afford it, go for it.

Hmm. Maybe if plastic surgery could make me taller, I'd spring for the operation.

I have, and I would again (despite having botched surgery the first time that I had to have corrected.)  Nothing too major, but I definitely plan on having my neck tightened and my eyes done when I start to age.  Would also consider injectables and some laser resurfacing.

Last night I watched a Doctor Who episode, featuring Lady Cassandra O'Brien.Δ17.

«According to Cassandra, her parents were the last to be buried "in its soil". She had been born a male on Earth and lived on the edge of the "Los Angeles Crevasse". Married several times, her life had been extended through a series of 708 plastic surgery operations, until she was nothing but a piece of skin stretched onto a frame, with eyes and a mouth, connected to a brain in a designer jar filled with a preserving solution below. The skin had to be constantly moisturised to keep it from drying out.»

I do not regret having the surgery, a matter of fact just the opposite.

I certainly would call this corrective rather than cosmetic even though removing the bump on your nose would probably be considered cosmetic by a lot of people.

Frequent sinus infections are no joke, so I bet there was damage done to the underlying bone structure when your nose was broken.

Something like this I would definitely get fixed and would regard it as a necessity.

They do have a procedure for that but it is horribly, horribly painful.  For me, death would be better.

Hey, if it makes you feel better about yourself, why not? If you feel better waking up to that face, and it makes you truly happy, then more power to ya!
