Hmm, it would be a lie if I said I never thought about it for cosmetic reasons but there is too much unknown and yes my son needs his Mom etc.

I've been thinking about it since I have lost weight. I have a lot of extra skin and it makes things like running and jumping uncomfortable. I have to wear Spanx under my workout clothes. I am not sure though... it looks so painful!

never thought of it you read to many horror stories I'd be afraid if something went wrong and my son grew up without a mom. But if you think it will make you happy do your homework first and make sure you get a good surgeon.... good luck!

I've never done it, but I think it is a personal decision. If something is going to truly make you feel better about yourself, make your decision.

Now, about those blown up fish lips - yuck. What the heck is that all about?? UGLY.

There is a spark team, Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss. One woman on the team talked about having a tummy tuck but then gaining weight back. She use to gain in her stomach but the surgery took away some fat cells there and now she gained in another area she was not use to having a lot of fat in the new area.

I'm all for looking your best to feel your best and having plastic surgery in areas that you feel bad about. Just know all the facts before you have any work done. Have all your children first before having this procedure.

No, I haven't but might if I could afford it to suck out some of this fat that drags me down or to reduce the size of my chest. Not likely so probably never will.

Going under the knife is too scary so I wouldn't do it unless a medical reason required me to do it.

I have thought about it, but I haven't done anything like that yet.

All my weight loss and weigh gain and etc. has left my boobs looking like deflated socks. So if I could ever afford it, I might get that done.

To each their own. It's not for me.

Has anybody ever undergone a Cosmetic Procedure? Particularly, in the weight loss category? I have 15 lbs that I think will never go away no matter how much (or little) I eat and/or exercise. I've had two children and I've got a belly (which is where most of this lingering weight has settled). I was "blessed" with large thighs since birth. I'm comfortable with my weight loss so far. I've lost 60 solid lbs and I'm determined to at least maintain this. I've learned and implemented some very good habits in my life to help. But I would like to be more than comfortable. I'd like to be satisfied. And unless this tummy shrinks up some more that's not going to happen. So, I'm thinking that next year I'll look more into Lipotherme. My fiance and I are undecided as of right now if we want one more baby and I wouldn't want to risk pregnancy after a procedure like this.

Any opinions, comments, suggestions are welcome here. Have you thought about this?? How far will you go to feel satisfied with your body? emoticon
