What do you think about it? 

Should people get it whenever they don't like something about their appearance or should it be reserved for extreme cases, i.e., recontructive surgery after breast removal, burns, etc.?

I would and plan to, but none of the procedures listed above.

i've changed the poll to include "other procedure."

do you mind sharing what you might be considering?

Yeah, I could see myself doing it later on, too. I really have nothing against minor plastic surgery -- it's the scary augmentations and reshapings that leave you looking nothing like your former self that I'm bothered by.

I had lipo on my inner and outer thighs a few years ago, and it was a great decision.  No more thighs rubbing together or saddle bags hanging off.  I'm the same size I was before, I just look better in my clothes.  It really changed my whole shape.  I was more pear shaped before, and now I look slimmer.  I'd do it again in a heartbeat, but I don't need any more work done.

4 things...mastopexy, brachioplasty, belt lipectomy and thighplasty.  TMI? :-\  Well hey, since when did I care?

This probably won't be happening for a while since it could run up to 40Gs.

I would and plan to, but none of the procedures listed above.

i've changed the poll to include "other procedure."

do you mind sharing what you might be considering?

Actually, I don't really know what any of those procedures are. English, pweese?

Have you lost a lot of weight recently or something? Those are all things that people who've had Gastric Bypass Surgery usually get. . .

If plastic surgery weren't so dangerous I think I might do something to my thighs. First I'd invest in a personal trainer. I'm probably just not doing something right/enough in order to change how they look. To me, plastic surgery is the last choice after you've tried everything else.
