When does inner beauty overtake outward beauty?

Karinaxoxo left a comment about me looking like an Orange County Housewife. Which is pretty weird because I've had Dr.90210 on the brain since I saw him fix a deviated septum and while he was fixing that, he gave this amazing new nose to a man.

I have a deviated septum and I've always thought a nose job would be a surgery I would do in a heartbeat. The deviated part seems to be getting worse as I get older, I snore very loudly and I get frequent nose bleeds. So now the option isn't entirely vain. I still firmly believe that if you mush your face in ways you aren't suppose to, your face will freeze like that, just like your mother told you. Like the bitch line I mentioned during last weeks posts. It takes something like 47 muscles to frown and only 3 to smile. So the more you smile, the less wrinkles you will get. Or if you can't bring yourself to pasting on a smile, just sit there void of any visible emotions. I am ok with having plastic surgery and or medically necessary surgery. I believe every person should have the choice to choose for themselves.

I had my ankle reconstructed with a long ruler sized titanium plate, a 3 inch rod/nail and about 8 tiny screws. Scar? Hardly visible. I had back surgery, the Dr who was going to do it chickened out at the last minute, which meant I didn't have this new guys promise of using running laces to stitch it up, he used a staple gun. Scar? Right about where a tramp stamp would be. I have spider angiomas all across my chest , I was going to have each one injected with a saline solution to reduce the redness on my wedding day and to wear my strapless wedding gown with confidence. In the end, I decided that I was being too hypercritical of myself and let it go. My mother insisted that they could hardly be seen, yet she can see that next five pounds I should lose. My husband told me today I was getting skinny on him, I said five more pounds. He being the very loving husband he is, tells me how beautiful I am right now, right here. If I don't say thank you, he will pinch me until I say I am beautiful.

curiosity time..How many of you would have a nose job?
Remember once it's done you can't undo it.. So do you stick with the one you've always had or go for a gamble on being a new improved version? No guarantees that you will like the new one..

Sorry - i hope i didnt offend you :-)

As for a nose job - I wouldn't have one - only because I am happy with my nose... but would I have lipo or a boob job? Yep if I could afford it.

But i think it is different when your face is involved... your facial features give you personality - so I probably wouldn't change my face too much.

You are absolutely beautiful the way you are.

I would NEVER have surgery unless it was absolutely necessary.

What a great post this was. You inspired me.

Karina- I always thought I had a little too much personality (i.e. a big nose)!

I wouldn't have a nose job as I think mine is just fine....but I would have lipo if I could afford it, too! Do you watch nip/tuck? I love it!It's interesting the people that get plastic surgery and the why and wherefores...not to mention the fun interactions of the doctors and their families. Sound like a commericial, don't I?
