Is plastic REALLY fantastic?

It's 5 weeks until Helga's non-A F F birthday and before I know it, the big 4-0 will be knocking. It's at times like these that I start wondering whether I should start saving for plastic surgery, aka a boob job. Let's face it... my breasts may appear bountiful when they're safely tucked up in my bra, but remove the bra and these puppies head south!!

Okay, admittedly they've not reached the knee-knocking stage (except when I'm sitting, of course), but they're certainly not going to get any less droopy than they are now. Yeah, yeah, I know!! I should have listened to the Wicked Witch (step-mother for those of you who are lucky enough not to have one) and worn a bra at ALL TIMES, but I had more fun without one on!

Then along came children, and ageing, and my once perky assets had suddenly depreciated... Never mind failing the pencil test with one pencil, I could fit a whole darn pencil case under there!! (For those of you who don't know it, the pencil test is used to assess breast droop... stick the pencil under your breast, and if it falls to the floor, no droop! However, if it stays firmly in place... you're done for!)

Now about the boob job... I'm not talking Jordan here... hell, I'd like to be able to see my feet without having to lie down and lift them up above my head. Just something in keeping with my current size. (Perhaps while the plastic surgeon is busy with the boobs, a colleague of his could flatten my stomach too )

However, I digress...

There are several things to consider though. I've watched a boob job being performed, admittedly only on the telly, but hell, it scared the life out of me!! That surgeon was not proceeding gently on his victim, er, I mean patient, and I wasn't surprised to learn that she was in enormous pain once she came around and the drugs wore off!

Then there's the whole saline vs silicone debate. Will they leak? Be rejected by the body? What about scarring? Questions, questions, questions! I've also heard that once you've had it done, you have to get them replaced every 10 years on average... that's more pain and more scarring to live through. I've seen many, many photos of botched boob jobs, and like men who flinch when you discuss a vasectomy with them, I shudder when I see those pics.

Of course, it would be wonderful to have non-droopy breasts again... breasts that don't slide off my chest when I lie down. Mr Hansen isn't so convinced though... he tells me they are hard to the touch, not soft and giving like real breasts (I've not touched a woman with implants, so I have no idea ) Mr Hansen's opinion is important in all of this, of course... he is the official photographer, and chief nipple sucker, after all!!

*Sigh*... maybe I should just keep the money and spend it on liposuction.....

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

I'd highly recommend a lift vs. implants. Kind of like a face lift ... they just remove some excess skin and lift the whole assembly to it's original operational specs - so to speak... Any plastic surgeon worth half a hoot will be much happier doing this than inserting little bags of saline.

Course, the downside is the scars. They tend to be a bit larger, but a good surgeon can minimize this affect...

According to a recent survey, men say the first thing they notice about a women are their eyes. And women say the first thing they notice about men is they're a bunch of liars

Women can debate all they want about whether we should bring back silicone breast implants or stay with saline. I can't help but wonder if little whoopee cushions wouldn't be more fun

Is plastic surgery nothing more than hidding someone's uncertaincy about theirselfs??. I can understand that people with a real medical indication (for example; burned people) have plastic surgery but people who look "normal" but are not satisfy about their belly,breast,eyes..the normal signs of the time...should they do it? Working on their selfesteem and doing some sport would be better and cheapper. For me..nothing better than the real thing. You have to agreed with me....Michael Jackson had a better look before all surgery....Save the money and book a nice holiday....that memory will always last...
