    Yes-howsomeever, it takes $$$ that we do not have. I would have abdominoplasty, boob lift, liposuction of buttocks and thighs, and tightening the skin of my upper arms.

    No, everything hasn't gone south for the winter, but it eventually will, and I wish I could be prepared! LOL!

    No doubt - boobs!

    In fact I was about to get it done when I got offered the job I have now and didn't want to pass it up. (Day shift position right off the bat - couldn't pass it up)

    Seriously, I had already picked out a set of beautiful 400cc silicone round implants, had held them in my hand and felt their glory. I had my financing approved (they'll finance anything, won't they?) and had already had my pre-op labs drawn.

    We were shooting for surgery the first week of November, I just had to make sure I could get the time off from my previous job. My new employer called the same day I got my labs drawn to offer me the job, starting full time orientation November 1.

    No boobies for me

    So, we spent the money on other things, and it would really be too frivilous of an expense now. But if I came into a large sum of money tomorrow, I would do it in a heartbeat.

    I think I would get liposuction in my thighs - then I could wear corduroy without making all the whip whip noise, and not cause a fire from the friction. I guess the better answer is with all the money for surgery I would join a gym and hope the instructor wasn't an ex-marine.

    I second that motion, Cathy! I don't need a boob lift...well...they are perking lower and lower these days even though they remain full and voluptuous. I would love to get a tummy tuck, thigh trimmer, arm tightener done. Bring me the moo-lah, and some gorgeous Plastic Surgeon has got himself another hot-mama to carve into a TEN on a scale of 1 to 10... :chuckle

    I used to think about a chin lift and maybe a boob job, but the older I get the more comfy I get with my saggy ol' self. I have to admit, I startle myself when I see Mom looking back at me from the mirror! A few years back I decided that my gray hair was pretty cool, too. (And no more "skunk stripe" between colorings, either.) So now, my best feature is a big ol' low maintenance smile!

    I have dreams of sucking some fat someday myself.

    Anybody do it out there that was pleased??? Or does the fat just come back elsewhere?????

    When I was in high school, I wanted to get breast reduction surgery...until I found out that they have to remove the areola/nipple area and a complication may be loss of sensation. NO WAY NO HOW NO NEVER NO!!!!!!!!!! Other than that, I am perfectly happy with my body, it may not look very good...but it has been good to me so far...I won't start cutting it up now.

    Indeed.
