yeah, lipo would be pointless for an obese person.  where would the doctor begin?

another question (sorry, but i find this stuff fascinating), did your skin suck back to normal?

Yes, it did.  You'd never know I had anything done unless I told you.  I always thought my upper thighs made me look like a chubby baby.  Now they match the rest of my body.  I went in with the goal of looking more sleek and streamlined.  I do.

oh, i didn't meant to imply that it was only for the grossly obese.  i just meant that the thought of having lypo will keep my at my current size (you couldn't find anything to suck off if you wanted to).

Have a few kids and get back to me...  ;)  Those little buggers ruin your figure!

i'm hoping that i remain identical to my mom, who is 5'1 and 105 at age 43.

I haven't seen 105 since I was in 3rd or 4th grade. Personally, I wouldn't want to. You sound too skinny, Ruskie. Do you have any muscle on those bones?

I've been working out a little lately, so yes, I do.  I had to cut out the physical activity for a few years because of a soccer injury and a quasi-heart condition, but I am learning to excercise around those things now.  I know I am small, but I look healthy and have never had weight issues, so if you're worried about the Lindsey Lohan disease, it doesn't apply to me. ;)  Ask Fabyaluss -- she's met me!

105 is good for someone who's only 5'1, but for me (at 5'9), anything under 145 looks gaunt.

The smallest I was at 5'10 was 135 and I don't think I looked good at that weight. Right now I weight between 147-150 and I think that's the perfect size for me. As for plastic surgery, I wouldn't get anything done to my face or body.

However I may need surgery on my feet. Gymnastics and ballet caused the bone in my big toe to curve inward... (DONT LAUGH) 
Honesty has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it. No ulterior motives. No hidden meanings. An absence of hypocrisy, duplicity, political games, and verbal superficiality. As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there will be no need to manipulate others.--Chuck Swindoll

ahahaha. muse's got boomerang feet. jk, muse.

that foot surgery is probably not plastic surgery.  sounds like you messed up your bone structure, so it should be like a regular medical procedure and it should be readily covered by your insurance.

Regal, I have the exact same problem with my feet (with the same sources).  I thought briefly about having the surgery, but my boss had it and told me that it was the most painful and debilitating thing imaginable.  She says if she had know how it would be, she wouldn't have bothered.  I don't think I'll put myself through months of agony and lack of mobility just for aesthetics.  And they don't look all THAT bad...

ewwww.  hoover job? :o

Hey, if you want that stubborn fat gone for good, you gotta get out the big guns!

For the record, lipo isn't necessarily for fatties. It's a good procedure for people of average size, like me, who want to get rid of fat that does not go away with diet or exercise. I had fatty inner thighs and saddlebags that didn't go away, even though I'm physically fit (military) and quite thin.

Do you mind saying how much that cost you?  The inner and outer thigh is an issue with me as well.  i exercise all the time and they just won't get smoothe.
