Have You Had Cosmetic Surgery?

Has anyone here had cosmetic surgery and if so what did you have done and are you happy with how it turned out?

I had a tummy tuck after losing 60 lbs. Best decision I ever made.

R1 what was it like to have a tummy tuck? The procedure, the after care..

by Anonymousreply 603/02/2019

Very easy, R6. The worst pain I had was the back pain, bc I couldn't stand up straight for 2 weeks, and your abs are useless at the beginning. I had to get out of bed by rolling off and hoping my feet hit the floor first. By the 3rd week I was back at the gym, walking on the treadmill and doing seated upper body workouts. The incision site itself was numb for the better part of a year. I had a single drain that was removed a few days post surgery. It was a very easy recovery, but I was at my ideal weight and in good shape (except that saggy skin) prior to the operation, which is key.

Nose job. 8 years ago. I’d wanted to have it done for over 30 years. One of the most positive decisions I’ve ever made. I never dreamed it would make such a difference to my self-image, and luckily my husband liked the end result too (he didn’t want me to do it).

The only downside is that my nose gets ice cold when the temperature drops. I don’t care.

I haven't, but I've decided that I might have the bags under my eyes done (I'm only 30, but they're already bothering me and they're hereditary) and my neck lifted once I hit 40 or 50. As a man, I don't want a face lift, because those always seem to make men look weird and fillers ALWAYS look like shit on anyone. Why do people get fillers? I've never seen them look right on anyone.

I really want to get blepharoplasty because I have excessive skin in my upper eyelids but a) it's too expensive and b) I'm nervous about leaving it in the hands of a plastic surgeon. And too many men look feminized after an eyelift.

I've thought about the non-surgical eyelift which uses a plasma pen to tighten the skin.

I know getting an eye lift can be a deathly mistake for a man, but how about just getting the bags taken out from underneath? Does that at least end up looking ok?

by Anonymousreply 3103/02/2019

The issue to me is that you have to know exactly what your problem spots are and you have to hold firm. You might know your eyes and neck look bad and just want to get those, but if you get into the surgeon's office and they start saying "y'know, you might want to try some filler in your lips and cheeks and maybe a face lift would help, too..." , you need to be able to say "no! Those things don't bother me. I just want my eyes and neck done."

I think some people just start believing everything the surgeons say and they agree to get a trillion things done that they don't even need. I'm convinced of it. It's no secret that most people who get plastic surgery don't have the greatest self-esteem and the surgeons know that. You can't let them persuade you into all that other crap.

Kybella for my turkey neck at 71. $2500 for 3 vials and a free vial a month later courtesy of the dermatologist. Worked so-so.

R31, I think doing the under-eye bags sounds less risky than doing the eyelids (above the eyes). Like, R32 said, you have to be firm with your doctor. I know someone who only wanted under-eye bags removed. Doctor talked them into forehead lift and eyelids surgery as well.

You also have to remember that this is surgery, elective surgery. If you are prone to infections and long healing times, then don't ignore that. If a doctor says you should be up and running in X amount of time (after surgery), take into consideration what you know about yourself.

I read about x distance between the eyes and nose, x distance between the upper lip and nose, lips should be a certain width, etc. On paper that sounds great, but in reality...Everything about Barbra Streisand says she should be ugly, but in reality her looks are exotic and there is something very attractive about her looks, at least when she was younger.

YES and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I had a face and neck lift last year when I turned fifty. I also had my eyes done, upper and lower, and fat injected into my temples and cheeks. I've been a runner and a gym rat my whole life and stay pretty lean so my face was getting gaunt.

Most plastic surgeons don't know how to do men so they end up feminizing the face. I could have bought a new Mercedes for what I paid my surgeon but he was an expert and I couldn't be happier.

Oddly enough, most don't even recognize it; they just say, "Wow, you look great." I'm an attorney and find that a lot of my colleagues are doing the same, both women and men.

r20, it's not as dramatic as surgery. On the other hand, no scars. And, I wasn't looking for a dramatic difference. Over the course of several months, there's a gradual, noticeable lifting/tightening effect, and your skin actually goes back to a more youthful version of itself.

I had my ears "pulled back" 40+ years ago when I was 13. At the time, here in Ontario OHIP covered it as long as it was done before you were 16-after which they classified it as "cosmetic", so it didn't cost my parents a dime. Anywho, I've never regretted it as it sort of runs in the family and one of my cousins who DIDN'T have it done, looks like a cuter version of Prince Charles (but the ears look big enough that he'd be swept out of the room if a strong enough wind happened).

R31, I had my lower eyes done at 50-- had horrible bags and everyone always asked me if I was tired-- omg so annoying and rude, but that's off topic. It is single-handedly the best thing I ever did. I went to one of the top doctors in NYC and looked at a lot of the pictures- he was amazing (Prasad was his name). You would never know that I had the surgery done, and that is what he wanted. My skin is tight under my eyes and they do it without any scars-- it's been amazing and I can't say enough good things about him (I think going to a guy is important if you are a male, and you need to see pics of their work).

I will say that I've had 2 resurfx treatments, and they are better than fillers for me, sure I have nasolabial lines, but they're not nearly as deep as they used to be.

I had a hair transplant twelve years ago. Did a lot of research, found the best doctor in Miami, and took my time to make the decision. I think it's good to find the best surgeon in a major metropolitan area, and to be willing to travel and spend a significant amount of money to make sure it is done right. I think I spent about $8000 at the time. The day of the surgery and for a few days after, I had buyer's remorse, mostly just because it was so uncomfortable. It took months for the hair to grow back in its new locations. But once it came in, I was very happy with the results.

Now I'm thinking about having the skin above my eyes tightened up. I am afraid of looking feminized; I think many surgeons take out too much skin. I also don't like the way people's faces look dead after they have surgery or botox. I think I would rather look wrinkled and alive.

If I go the surgical route, I'm looking at 18k. Which is not so bad, I guess. I actually wish I had MORE wrong with me (as douchey as that sounds) because then I wouldn't even bother. But the fact that at 44 I think I look really great except for this chin thing is pushing me to consider it.

I see a lot of advice about finding the best surgeons and paying for the best, but do you really think people like Mary Tyler Moore, Meg Ryan, and Mickey Rourke didn't find and pay for the best? The unfortunate thing about plastic surgery is that even if you get the best surgeon, the results are still a bit of a crap shoot, since a lot depends on your own body's unique healing tendencies (i.e., inclination to form scar tissue and other stuff).

Lipo looks brutal. I don't know if it is true or not, but some people here have said you can tell if a person has had lipo.

by Anonymousreply 12903/18/2019

You can't tell at all!

She's just a mess with the stomach lipo and fake boobs R130.

I got Botox on my forehead for headaches years ago and it worked great. What worked better was being moved to another office where I had little to no contact with my co-workers.

But as I was sitting in the reception area waiting my turn I was listening to the receptionists and I could tell which ones had done lip injections. They had a weird slowness of their speech, almost like they had Down Syndrome or something. I would like to get a lift someday, but never lip injections.

Botox made me look worse. Droopy eyelids from the forehead injections.

Curious what the least obvious surgery is. I never seem to notice chin surgeries. I agree eyes and forehead lifts look ridiculous on most men,

Is a mini lift, built more lift or mid facelift best for jowls? Sadly I don't have a strong jawline.

Sorry Biltmore lift not builtmore

No, R106, I was 39 when I had surgery on my upper eyes. No one would've said I "needed" the surgery, but I wanted to be proactive. I was - and 22 years later, still - very happy with the results.

Does anyone know how long non ablative fractional laser redness is supposed to last? I had it down in early February and the redness still hasn’t gone, my derm told me to use a decent humectant and sunblock but I’m worried it’s permanent. Is their anything else I can do to speed the healing process up?

R105 I think that there are state or city Dept of Health records boards. any complaints or judgments that a doctor might have received. Or state medical boards.

Don't get a nose job. They fill your nose with cotton and some doctors make you leave it in for a week. I had a childhood injury fixed and I only had minor surgery to fix that. I had to have the cotton in for just a day but still I was counting down the hours until my afternoon appointment to get that stuff taken out. I can't imagine having it in for a week and for just cosmetic purposes.

R139, use apple cider vinegar.

If you had just a slightly sagging neck just under your chin would a chin implant help pull it tight?

by Anonymousreply 14303/29/2019

Madonna tried that and it doesn’t look good, go for a neck lift or lower face lift.

Rhinoplasty at a very young age, and I couldn't have been any happier with the results.

Am considering lasik surgery but am not thrilled about needing artificial tears for the rest of my life.

by Anonymousreply 14503/29/2019

Who told you you would need artificial tears for life R145? I had laser surgery done in 1998 and don't use artificial tears.

by Anonymousreply 14603/29/2019

R146 the opthamoligist I've been seeing for a few years said that prescription wise I'm an ideal candidate the downside being the artificial tears bc of chronic dry eye.

My guess would be that maybe you didnt have dry eye as a problem going into it?

I'm considering the temporary contacts that correct your vision at night; CRTs would probably be the best option.

by Anonymousreply 14703/29/2019

You have chronic dry eye now R147?

don't get Lasik. It went wrong for a few people and they killed themselves coz the pain was so unbearable. Google it.

Google it yourself R149. The percentages are very low of anything bad happening.

R139, wear sunblock around the clock, including indoors and especially when in front of a computer monitor.

Has anybody tried coolsculpting? I’m starting to sprout a waddle.

by Anonymousreply 15304/04/2019

I had Juvederm filler for my nasolabial lines (laugh lines running from nose to mouth) and marionette lines (either side of chin). and a few lines around the lips. It looked nice, until it absorbed, but not the kind of thing where anyone notices. It cost me $1,000 and didn't wow me enough to have it done again. I look remarkably good for my age due to genetics. Mother lived until 95 and was relatively healthy. I am not overweight and look way better than most people in my senior exercise class. The sad thing is - fillers and surgery do not make a homely man or woman good looking. They still remain just plain people with taut skin.

I recently read that the jury is still out on what fillers will do after 25, 20 years. It may leave a lot of lax skin behind, since elderly skin loses its elasticity as time goes on.

If I had a huge nose or facial deformity I would not hesitate to do something, but not the minor stuff.

R149 it's true. I know someone whose night vision was screwed up. You tried to help, and no good deed goes unpunished, as the saying goes, so fuck 'em

Ivanka is a perfect example of someone that was rather homely and with a good plastic surgeon became good looking R154.

I had coolsculpting done for my love handles R153. I'm satisfied. Be prepared that it might take two rounds six weeks apart.
