I'm going in for rhinoplasty and inner thigh lipo.  I am a size 8 but even when I was a size 4 my inner thighs weren't perfect.  I'm not looking for perfection, I just want to look better.  I want to be hott.  We'll see...I might get scared.  Who knows.

Any good doctor is going to sit you down and get to the bottom of why you want your thighs done.  "I want to be hottt," might not sit well.  When I told my doctor I wanted to do it because of the chafing and discomfort of rubbing thighs, and a desire for a more sleek look in clothes, he said that was a very good reason to go for it, "Not to become a supermodel." (his words).

I disagree.  Are my inner thighs causing chafing to the point that it is uncomfortable?  NO.  Are my inner thighs preventing me from my daily activities?  NO.  Will a plastic surgeon do the lipo so that I can look hott by my standards?  YES!!!  Do you watch TV?  Have you seen extreme makeover or anything?  As long as you have money you do not need a medical reason for getting the plastic surgery (give or take a few exceptions).  Furthermore, we want the surgery for the same reasons. 

Hott = Desire for a more sleek in clothes


OK, I've been to a good plastic surgeon in NJ and was sat down and questioned not once but twice about my reasons for wanting surgery.  I actually had the surgery.  You haven't but you know all the answers.  OK, fine.  You're right.  I'm wrong.  You just go on in there and say, "Turn me into a hotttttie!"  That's a good plan.

Iím a professional.  I would NEVER go into a doctorís office and use the words hott or hottie.  Also, I know that I do not have all of the answers, hence my reason for having a consultation.  Iím just saying that I will likely be able to get the lipo WITHOUT a medical/chafing reason.  Loosen up.

Your post made me laugh!  No really, I am not black.  I am 1/2 white and 1/2 middle-eastern.  Try taking someone from the middle east and marrying them to someone whose family is from the South - not a pleasant growing up experience as far as being accepted.  And Lassie was great!  I love dogs.  I am like the female Ace Ventura.

Lassie, ignore her. ::) ;)

Welcome to the BLSD.  Glad to have you aboard.

Thanks Mobel!  I hope I didn't already piss people off with my first post here!  I read all the boards and post where I see interesting topics or things I have questions about.  Sadly, my first question here is about lipo  :(  Don't hold it against me!

I figured you were kidding  ;), but then I felt like my bi-racial comment might have truly been ambiguous.  It is funny, growing up how I did it has taken me a long time to even say "yes, I am this!" because I had so much shame for so long when people would ask. 

And I think Lassie is apropos as my avatar.  Firstly, she is like me: beautiful, smart, loyal, and committed to rescuing people.  What is a better avatar for a future international human rights lawyer  :)  (and yes, i know the real dog who played lassie was a boy - the one way lassie and I are not alike hahahaha)

I have grown to love my ethnic ambiguity.  I have daydreams of being an undercover agent (I am not sure for who) and being able to blend into any country I go to  ;D

I'm with you E...at least put a black dog up if you're going to be in BLSD..:)  And I don't mean a black dog as in the color of its coat, but a black dog as in a dog that black people would have.  You know..pit bull, rottweiler, etc.  haha.  So I'm watching this commercial and see a black family outside playing with their dog.  It was a dog that no black person on the face of the earth would have (in my mind at least).  It was very clear who made the decision for what dog to go with... :)
