    Default Plastic Surgery

    Have you gotten plastic surgery? Would you get plastic surgery? If you wanted to and could, what would you get? Thoughts?

    I don't think I would get plastic surgery. But I have thought about getting laser hair removal and hair transplants if I ever lost my hair.
    With mind distracted, never thinking, "Death is coming,"
    To slave away on the pointless business of mundane life,
    And then to come out empty--it is a tragic error.

    If I had so much money that getting it was like buying a candy bar then I'm sure the idea would cross my mind, but really I'm pretty happy with how I look for the most part and I don't think the risk of it getting botched would be worth the relatively minor rewards of it working. Most people probably don't even notice the little things I do (e.g. my nose being slightly crooked). I'm certainly not morally opposed to plastic surgery, but I would worry that it might offend my family and would just feel a little bit dishonest changing my appearance in that way. I'm not saying I think it is dishonest. I don't. I just would feel that way if I got it I think

    I’ve never gotten it, no. Idk if I would, but if I did, I’d prob try tweaking my nose a bit. The end of it, to where it isn’t so rounded. But nothing major. I think that it can prob be addictive, though, and if I were to get too much, a bit disconcerting when it comes to my identity and self-image

    I never would, because I want my inner transformations of entity and idea space to be the dominant lion king of the jungle.

    ahem it often seems to not go so well... but i don't know if i only end up randomly seeing before/after pics in which it didn't. i think if i was super well off and this were an option i would probably get help naturally making my body better first... and then after a baseline was established, my facial symmetry is kinda off because of my neurotic chewing on the inside of my mouth but i don't know if this would be how to fix that, if at all...

    and like @reverie said people do get addicted to it, it's a quest for perfection and i don't want to end up in that spiral at all and i could say i don't think i would but a lot of ppl don't think some form of addiction can happen to them and it's easy for me to see how things can change in a way in which i get caught in some spider's web i didn't even see (or i did but it was such a safe distance away...). it feels like the brain is eager to get stuck in a new "way of things" and once a certain threshold is surpassed it falls the rest of the way fast, and undoing it is not as easy as doing it in the first place (really it can't be undone, it has to be overridden by something else new).

    i would definitely get a lot of hair removed. i really don't like that it's there growwwwing out of me. that it has to be tended to over and over if one is trying to look better. it's a real pain.

    the other thing about plastic surgery i don't know is how often is it botched lol. like an unnecessary surgery is kinda automatically not something that appeals to me... so i really probably wouldn't get it. like there are other ways to address one's appearance if one can... so many things i haven't even done. i am just considering it for the sake of it really, like when the answer is no, but you orbit around the edges where any yes might reside.

    I was thinking of this as very different from plastic surgery but both @Eudaimonia and @inumbra have mentioned laser hair removal, which I have gotten. I definitely recommend it if you get sick of shaving. It can take quite a few treatments and is a bit spendy, but the time saved not shaving is worth it I think. I hate shaving

    My main thing is I want to keep looking like myself so probably wouldn't tweak actual features, I just don't want to look tired and droopy. I'm only 36 so I don't feel too much pressure yet--and a little volume loss or fine lines don't bother me much--but I'd consider getting a subtle lift or tuck when I'm older, like 50s or 60s. Not an entire facelift since those are super scary, but they have a lot less invasive, subtle procedures now that don't sound too bad.

    I also have naturally heavy eyelids (Blake Lively's a good example) and the older I get they actually do feel heavier, so I'd consider a blepharoplasty at some point, too. It's known as the "old person's surgery" because so many elderly people get it done to keep their eyes open, lol.

    It's interesting we in the US think of plastic surgery as such an Instagram model or Beverly Housewives thing, but I have a friend who lives in the Middle East and she said it's incredibly common there. Almost assumed you'll get it, and at a young age, if you can afford to.

    I've been doing an IPL laser at home and it's helping thin out the hair but it's definitely not as powerful as going in to get a real laser treatment! It's just nice having it grow back slower even if it's not completely gone.

    I'm okay looking this average for the rest of my life so no thanks. I think I would rather get a fitness trainer and a dietician with that money.

    Yeah, that's the case in quite a lot of Asia, not just the Middle East. It's not as popular in Japan (they're a little too conservative for that here I think), but South Korea for example is obsessed with plastic surgery

    I've watched too many episodes of the show Botched & would be afraid. I'd like a boob job though.

    everyone looks off after getting it. it cant be good for ur body. things perceived to need surgery are due to flawed perception. if something's wrong with ur body its due to how u use it and environment surgery creates more problems that are impossible to fix now.
    i'm afraid it will hurt like hell, i am afraid of screaming and i am afraid of crying, i am afraid of forgetting but i'm not afraid of dying.

    I was watching some clips of some women talking about plastic surgery and I follow a lot of different blogs and stuff in regards to beauty.

    the Most „plastic surgery“ I have gotten is laser hair removal. I’m in the middle of it and have 3 treatments left so we shall see how that goes

    I don’t think I could get it. I’ve had times where I was stressed about certain areas of my body but, that makes me….me! I think I would look weird if I ever got plastic surgery. Meh, it is was it is~

    The only reason I can think of is corrective plastic surgery. Cosmetic? Nty.

    When I was younger, yes I wanted to get plastic surgery. Now, not at all.

    I didn't know laser hair removal was considered as plastic surgery.

    I am fortunate in that I don't have any disfigurement that warrants getting plastic surgery. If I had a disfigurement, like a hair lip, I would probably get it. My cousin's first son was born with a hair lip but they did surgery on him as soon as they could and you can't really tell he was born with a hair lip.

    I would love to have excess skin removed from my tummy, my upper arms, and inner thighs. Perhaps a breast lift, but that makes me nervous.

    Nah. I have a unique face but only a handful of people have called me ugly so that's good enough.

    I don't care about plastic surgery but seeing that link really makes me want to do lasik in a few years. My eyesight is not perfect anymore, I would do better with eyeglasses but I hate seeing myself wearing eyeglasses so I don't wear mine as much as possible.

    Also lol that site is not even secure
