Expensive, yes it is but IF you could afford it what kind of plastic surgery would
you have?

If I could afford it (and get over the fear factor), there is a scar I would like to make look more linear. However, I have grown to like it now; when I was a child, I was keen to keep it covered in front of others unless it was just family. Vanity, I know. I did not get stitches back then, just a poultice for a few days and the skin repaired itself.

I think that I would have liposuction to tighten some saggy areas. As well, I'd like to get my breasts put back to where they once were, and perhaps some botox to fill in that little crease that is sitting above my top lip. Now to have the money and the nerve to actually do this, not sure if I ever would, but if it was not harmful to my health and it did not look artificial, I would surely consider it.

As motorcycle riders & especially in our younger days of basically dirt competition to some road racing. As young men we had our "War Scars" we liked to show off. Shows you the crazy ways men looked at things.

Beware of 'cosmetic cowboys'

Plastic surgeons have renewed warnings about "cosmetic cowboys" following a flurry of complaints
about botched operations.

Tristan de Chalain, head of the New Zealand Foundation for Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, said there were
"dozens" of cases where inexperienced plastic surgeons had performed operations they were not
qualified to do - leaving patients scarred and disfigured.

Among the complainants is a 42-year-old woman who claims an operation by an ear, nose and throat surgeon,
left her with a "fat and bulbous" nose and scarred lips.

She claims the surgeon "pushed" her into getting a lip lift when she consulted him about a rhinoplasty
operation in 2005.

A horribly hard lesson learned.

Always make sure they are qualified. Check with the medical board to see if there are complaints
against the doctor. Do your homework before letting anyone perform plastic surgery. Its a shame she
wont take him to court over this. It might help her recover a little, maybe it could go far enough to yank
his medical license. She needs a good lawyer willing to take on the fight and stick with it.

The universe is big It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely
impossible things just happen and we call them miracles

A former beauty queen from Argentina passed away just within the past few days. She was in for buttock surgery and well, she did not make it very long afterwards-embolism. She leaves a family behind too.

Argentina and another Latin American country have citizens keen on plastic surgery, as do countries in Asia. I mean lives can be at stake and may be gone after the surgery. I don't want to face mortality that way.

I found this link to the story. What I don't understand is why her husband is not going to look at pressing charges against the Doctor. If he botched the surgery like some think, then he needs to be stopped.

Machismo or being a male in Latin America is usually synonymous with being with attractive women. He may have not seen a reason to interfere with his wife's desire for surgery or he may not have known about her surgery. We don't know how communicative they were in their marriage. At least hope he manages to cope with his grief AND look out for his kids, not taking his wife's death as permission to be irresponsible with little ones.

Come the latest Monday I am to go to an eye specialist that spotted something on top of my left eye-lid. After having him operate on both of my eyes a few yrs ago. I felt that was a scab, but later on found it to be sort of wart. He has it in another latin name & has pointed out that it could turn into cancer.

Warts have been on the knuckle of my right hand for some yrs due to the grasp & control of the throttle control twist grip in basically all forms of dirt competition. For yes I would often see that area was bloodied after a race & sometimes up would come another wart every so often. Yes during my 42 yrs of such competition this was one of the results.

My local Dr, when not racing, but still riding & totalled up to a grand of 46 yrs, as of to date, was to have him sort of burn them off. True the scars show something like 9 ex-warts that were removed. True some scars as a bone specialist worked on the knuckle area to put in pins & later on wires (as I had broken the pins when racing) to hold the thumb back to normal otherwise I would have lost both of my thumbs to broken thumbs in the Benjimum or baseball break form.

That little bit about "cancer" that close to my eye is a bit frightening. I know at 79+ yrs of age my eyes are following those of my father being the eye-lids tend to droop to the outside. I can accept that for it is just to remember to open the eye-lids to see better, otherwise I nearly have my eyes closed when reading on this board or sometimes when talking to someone else. I can ofen see the eye lashes on the right eye is often getting in the way while the left eye with the present wart of whatever it is called, does not expose the eye lashes normally.

The idea of having a bit of skin removed at the top of both eye-lids would be extremely costly & I do not think I have the money. Besides at my old age I am not looking for glamor, like a women will at any age, & think I might be able to afford the left eye to be operated on a bit EVEN if I will have one eye larger looking eye to the other I might go to the one. Oh for the suffering of AGE upon any of us that are older then most.

Does sort of remind me of just after WWII in Japan I think some of the women had some of the skin removed from the top of thier eye-lids to look more fashionable/attractive in a Western way for beauty.

Well of all darned things I had a friend, of mine, drive me to the eye-specialist doctor to have that wart on the left eye-lid removed. End result is he did BOTH eyes by removing said wart to also a bit of skin from both eyes for I have sort of "sleepy eye look" thanks to my father of some yrs ago which is proof that you tend to follow your parents in growing up to even the rype old as that I am.

How some of the Japanese women had a bit of skin from their eyes to look a bit more Western looking & so possibly more bautiful is beyond me for when I feel like I have some water in my eye I find out it is blood.

I have only had one black eye in my street fighint age to yrs only this time I even have black eyes NOW & will be more so in the next few days. How I sleep this evening is beyong me.

Would I do it again? Only if it meant saving my life of my eyes. After all his replacing the failed catarace or what-ever with new lenses was NOT painful & did not mean any bleedinn, but only wondering it I would see better again & yes for my loss of depth of preception was back to normal & made it so much better when travelling at a good pace when twisting through the two lane roads in our Canadain Rocky Mountains for that is basically where I live.

I have never been a good looking male & more average, but now looking at myself & I look terrible at this very stage.
