Feelings regarding plastic surgery?

I'm strongly considering it because let's be real here I'm not getting any younger and these new and younger girls are taking all the money and stepping onto my turf

Plastic surgery is only gonna make you look like a monster. Just age gracefully.

@DearAmbellina2113 I've seen a lot of bad and good over the years. I tend to ask the bad cases who their surgeon was so I can avoid them.

If you have the money to pay for some doctor's second home in the tropics or put his kid through ivy league collage, go for it. Pick a good one though so people have to at least look closely to tell you have false parts😉

@SilkenMist
Lol see? I knew you cared 😃

@SlaveEt This is not good, I keep trying to aggravate people and they just laugh at me, even some guy on here who is usually quite agitated.

There's lots of de-aging massages. That'll feel MUCH better than getting plastic surgery. You could also keep up a skincare routine for aging as well. I think acupuncture is what you need, but I am not a professional in the massage area. This massage is extremely low-priced and doesn't costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Depending on where you live, around $100, lower or less.

@Xalvadora That likely has limited results, kind of like most new-age treatments.

I tell ya though, when one is young they do not think they are going to "age" but then when it starts happening, it really sucks.

I look at pics of myself from like 10 or more years ago and think, "Damn I looked young."

@SilkenMist That kind of scares me. The other day, I had came to the conclusion that I'll be old and look old and that scared me. Maybe because I'm not supposed to be thinking about that, and only embrace it once I start to look like I'm getting old.

Don't get plastic surgery. There are people out there who are allergic to whatever the surgeons put under your skin in order to make you look what you wanted to look like. Don't take that risk. Not only there's a possibility of you being allergic to plastic surgery, but there could also be many health problems if you get plastic surgery. It's not worth it.

What if that plastic kills you in the long-run? It'd be your fault because you didn't want to look old. Besides, as you grow older (like into 70's and 80's), you'll be unrecognizable and look like a hot mess that makes people think that you're wearing way too much makeup. You don't want to look worse than old. Besides, what if your teeth start falling out earlier than expected? Your hair? What if you started suffering from very poor eyesight where you're almost blind? What if it affects your breathing and you have to have an oxygen tank?

But at the end of the day, there would be no point in trying to convince you not to get plastic surgery. People just have to learn from their mistakes.

@Xalvadora I am not planning on any plastic surgery. I could not afford it even if I wanted.
It doesn't mean I want to look older but it cannot be stopped either way.

Plastic surgery to fight aging is basically polishing a turd. It might help a bit but yeah there are parts of the aging process that just cannot be hidden no matter how much one spends.

For the aging process though, the least one can do is at least stay off the drugs, booze, and tobacco. I know that sounds cliche and corny but those things really do cause people to age faster.
Also minimizing stress helps. Yeah some people work themselves to death and it shows.

I am all for it. If I could afford it, I would actually get my nose fixed.

You don’t want my feelings about it. Trust me.
HollyW ·
I hope this isn't rude. Are you a street hooker?
HollyW ·
@blackdiamonds No, it's different. For example only: a phone company where you take inbound calls and help guide people through their many options. You use company software as their direct representative.
@HollyW I'm not sure what that means. Can you perhaps use a more specific example?
HollyW ·
@froggtongue Working directly for a company rather than indirectly through a call center.

@MasterLee No, i was thinking botox, nose job and maybe some lip fillers

It's not so much if operations have been done, it's about how it looks at the end and if the operation was done well. This ends up being subjective. So do what you do. Which parts were you thinking of altering?
Plastic surgery makes you look like an old person that had plastic surgery. it unfortunately does not often make you look young.
It's your body, you can do to it whatever you want to. If it's worth the money and risking health issues to you, why not? 🤷‍♀️
Be careful who your surgeon is.
I've seen plenty of people who look far worse afterwards.

Elective surgery is still a risk. Be body positive. Show us what you have!.
Funlov · M
No thank you and would not go with a lady that did not me

I say you gotta do what you gotta do.

Society is indoctrinating those that cannot accept the inevitable and are insecure. I'd rather look old than fake. Taking care of one's skin, such as using sun screen even in the winter, is pretty much all we need.
blackdiamonds · 36-40, F
@Nihiless I wouldn't say I'm being indoctrinated I just work in a field where youth and beauty matters.
Nihiless · F
@blackdiamonds Yeah that's called 'society'.
Plastic surgery should be reserved only for people who have been rendered truly ghastly through something like severe burns, and who thus might get ostracized by society because of a car accident or birth defect

All other plastic surgery is a waste of healthcare resources and medical professionals, who could be treating legit health woes instead, and is just indicative of how worthless most of humanity is (with defects like shallow vanity but no affordable universal healthcare); it's a sign that humans still haven't evolved yet

And every celebrity who has plastic surgery always ends up looking like a cartoonish freak, and yet no one ever learns from this, and people continue to line up for this absurd nonsense
