I want plastic surgery because

I've had gastric bypass surgery and I've lost 160 pounds since my surgery.  I have to wait untilI have finished graduate school but I want to have the extra skin removed from my legs, bottom, and stomach.  If I am able I would like to have the extra skin removed from the upper arms and back.  As an adult I have always been fat, so I am very happy to have lost this weight.  It has totally changed my life.  I feel like such a different person.  My husband agrees.  My children have never seen me this size.

I have large breasts

I have large breasts.  I am 166cm tall and a size 18H.  I have lived with taunts from friends and family for a long time.  In Australia to get your breast reduced for medical reasons you have to be put on a waiting list and the waiting list is six to seven years.  I am a great person and I have a loving husband and beautiful daughter.  I ma just sick of not been able to buy nice clothes because the clothes just don't accomadate for big breasted people.  I'm sick of having a sore back and of getting headaches.  I defently can't stand my bad posture.  I am currently at the gym just to see if I can bring down a size or two.  But I know in my heart to get the result I want that I have to have cosmetic surgery.  The hardest thing is knowing it's available but at a hefty price.  I guess with no people like the dr phil angel and his mini angels in Australia my only option is to live with them until I strike it rich LOL.

I have lost 120 lbs., so I know how you are feeling. I really don't have too much excessive skin but enough that I could have a few things done. I completely lost my chest and now I look like a man. I have some saggy parts and I would love to have a tummy tuck and lipo. It is like having a new life. People treat you differently when you are thin and that makes you wonder.... "I've been the same person this whole time and now you want to be nice to me". Good job on your success.

I have also lost alot of weight...

Over 150 pounds...I already had a tummy tuck cut hip to hip it was really not that hard to recuperate maybe because prior to that I had 3 c sections...I was walking that night!  Slow but moving.....I now am at Optimal level and I see I could use one or two more lifts and tucks...

 

Suprisinly though....From overweight saggy boobs to me doing push ups and arm presses I am pretty happy with how my chest looks.

 

I actually need BUTT implants!  Oh man....

everything leans south at this point

i need some corrective work done but cannot afford it. i have bags under my eyes and permanent frown lines on my forehead. my breast are good sized but are now needing to be lifted up.my last baby just graduated high school and somehow i still need my tummy tucked after i have been eating healthy and working out for years to no avail. i do have a beautiful white smile and i have earned my laugh lines by using laughter and happiness as a stress reliever. i noticed it have affected my body image that does affect my self image, i don't feel as good about my body as i used to, i would like to turn time around before i turn 47 in december.  i am a die hard optimist but i have noticed my optimism has given up on my body and moved on the other areas of my body. 

if there is a nonsurgical approach i would like to try it. i believe holistic medicine may have new approaches to a old problem.

Are you referring to the purpose of this message board? We've had several shows in the past regarding plastic surgery that attracted quite a few members so we thought adding this board would give folks a place to discuss the reasons why they want plastic surgery. It is in no way related to any upcoming shows or guests, just a place to chat.
