    nip? tuck? suck? plastic?
    would you do it for yourself?
    would you do it for your partner?
    do you feel pressured to look perfect?
    how do you really feel about cosmetic ops?

    Yeah, I gotta admit, if I had the extra money floating around uncommitted, I would think about getting this or that tightened up a little. I'm definitely vain that way.

    Nothing radical ... still want to look like a healthy middle-aged guy, just a little less worn in certain places.

    (oops, didn't realized this was under "womens issues" ... sorry)

    Not under the knife, there are healthier ways to look good. Only laserhairremoval interests me.

    hmm...actually, these days it's almost as much a man's issue as a woman's.
    men are catching up with the girls on the ops stakes.

    tell me more about this. is it the 'cult of youth' thing?

    I've definitely considered getting a breast reduction. If I keep losing weight, and my chest size doesn't decrease, I'm likely to fall over. But it'd mostly be because of the back/neck pain and such.

    part of it is practical ... I'm an older guy in a business full of 20-and 30-something people.

    part of it is self-image ... I said I was vain ... I would like some of the skin that's starting to sag here and there (under my chin, for instance) to get smoothed out to give me the shape to my face that I like and I'm used to .

    poor you :frown1:

    giant boobs are a curse.
    but those ops are amazing! a line down from the nipple is the only scar that shows. i watch them on film and i'm astounded by what they can do.
    but here's hoping those puppies shrink unaided!

    so there's also career motivations?

    DEFINITELY!!! I want liposuction around the middle and stem cell breast augmentation, although they probably wouldn't be able to make me as big as I'd like. But I'd be doing it more for myself than for anyone else. In fact, most people have said they don't want me to have plastic surgery. They would be ok with me having laser hair removal (which I also want), because that's more of a convenience thing of just not having to shave my legs and all. I want stem cell breast augmentation rather than implants because they look and feel natural, plus it doesn't interfere with mammograms and such.

    I WANT giant boobs!!! I feel like I'm disproportionately SMALL there for the rest of me - I have a skinny woman's boobs on a chubby woman's body :mad:. And I've always wanted disproportionately large breasts. (And yes, I do mean disproportionately... I like 'em HUGE!) Of course, a lot of that is probably that so many men like slim women with disproportionately large breasts. I'm always shocked that the lucky women who have that don't like it - I mean, I've heard about back pain and all, and I can sort of see that, but all the attention I'd get from guys would more than make up for that!

    I'm a tad vain, and If money wasn't the problem, I would have no hesitation in being surgically enhanced........

    Yeah I would. There are 3 things 'on' my body I would get surgery for.

    First and foremost are my man boobs. I developed them at the start of puberty and they've grown to be quite large (gynicamastia). I HATE THEM! I've done the exercise route, I've dieted, I've done everything that I can do to make them go away, and they won't, so at this point in time, surgery is my only option. Also, because of their size, I have what women refer to as bra strap pain. No I don't wear a bra, but I do have pain along my shoulders (where a bra strap would be) and across my upper back.

    Secondly, I would get my pubic fat pad sucked out. I have an outrageous fat pad (that in all honesty blocks a good 2 inches or so from my cock), and like the man boobs, I've done diets, exercise, and every crunch there is known to man.

    Lastly (And feel free to laugh), I was born with next to no ass. Its so rediculous. I have so little fat/muscle tone in my ass, if I sit much more that 30 minutes at a time, my tailbone starts to hurt pretty bad.

    Mind you, all of these wanted operations are cosmetic, but two of them have actual legitamate problems associated with them.

    No. None of that.

    There is nothing more pathetic than older peeps trying to Stepfordize themselves.

    online it can be amusing.
    in the flesh?
    that kind of attention is really annoying.
    i sometimes feel like a cartoon from the side view.
    admiration when i'm dressed up & out is fun.
    being commented on in the street, like i'm not actually a person, is offensive.

    the grass is always greener! lol
    but i wouldn't want an op.

    I wouldn't mind mine lifted but not reduced.(gravity sucks).
    I've become accustomed to having large breasts.

    the only way i'd go under the knife is if i got into a freak accident and i needed reconstructive surgery. if my partner wanted me to alter my body for them, our relationship would be over. other than that i'm fine with myself the way i am. instead of getting lipo i'll just lose weight. instead of getting my eyelids done, i've learned to love the slants, etc, etc, etc. no going under the knife for me.

    Plastic surgery is just an easier way out then dedication to exercise and a good strong diet. Given that some people just don't have the genetics, you should just be comfortable with who you are. Societies too concerned about being perfect when such a thing doesn't exist.

    some things can't be exercised away.
    losing weight can leave you with great big handfulls of excess skin.
    you would be comfortable in this skin?

    i don't think it's about wanting to be perfect for most people.
