    I'm sure that, if I was willing to break every bone in my hand and have little pins inserted before they're reset, it would be possible ... but I don't think I will.
    HAHA, could never happen! Your skin of the hands won't fit any more!

    I'd go for a slight nose-job, maybe. Nothing really worth doing, but you know what they say about being your own biggest critic.

    e.g ?
    Too much fat being removed in lipo leading to a large 'overhang' on the abdomen, haematomas, massive scarring, extremely wonky boob jobs, infection leading to necrosis. Then the laser eye surgery ones are the worst. Recurrent corneal erosion for life (meaning the surface of your cornea peels away when you blink - as painful as it sounds), blindness, corneal damage leading to aphakia, over/under correction. That's just a few of the kind of things I get in regularly. Obv can't give case specific details.

    I am REALLY hoping that when I get pregnant my hips widen abit and somehow they stay wider and I have a flat tummy, Beyonce style. However, this will obviously never happen :mad:
    Hah! I will live in the hope! So when the baby comes out, *pop*, my stomach is flat again and i'm set with a nice pair of hips

    *crosses fingers*

    Is that a real procedure I remember my mum once telling me about Janet Jackson having ribs removed but I thought she was liyng :eek:
    I don't think its a common procedure that you can just go to somewhere like the harly medical group and get but I'm pretty sure its possible and people have had it done.

    "Rib Removal is a surgical operation, usually performed on the lowest ribs to make the waist thinner. This is considered 'extreme' and is rarely formally documented"

    "Rib removal per se does not reduce waist circumference. An improved waist size is accomplished only by the removal of surplus body fat. This is why rib removal is typically combined with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat tissue from the abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty is sometimes combined with liposuction, depending on the degree of loose skin, excess fat, and abdominal muscle weakness in the patient."

    just from wikipedia not sure about reliablilty

    No, they're natural! So unfair

    Yeah I know, When i was younger i wanted like Dolly Parton boobs, but people just talk about boobs to my big-breasted friend all the time, even though she'd rather talk about politics or the situation in the middle east, lmao.
    My sister was THIS close to getting her boobs enlarged to a DD then I reminded her she wanted to become a barrister and if she wants a shot at success they'll never make it happen! She's happy with her B cup now ^_^

    I'd be too scared of having a botched job. A bimaxillary osteotomy was enough for me, thank you very much!

    Reading "Uglies" by Scott Westerfield put me off for life.

    Also, plastic surgery just heightens the correlation between self worth and body image. Not saying I don't get insecure from time to time, but it's a slippery slope.
    What is that book about? Is it something about uglies who become pretties or something? I remember seeing it in the Library AGES ago and never getting to read it!

    That girl was so cute before the surgery! Now she is nowhere near as pretty.
    I think she looks much better!

    It's a brilliant series c: Basically, it's about a city in the future where everyone gets full-body plastic surgery when they turn 16. And, seeing as it put me off, it turns out everything isn't sunshine and rainbows

    There are three other books in the series, Pretties, Specials and Extras, and they're all well worth a read c:

    It is about how people will be manipulated and go under the knife to all look alike, it is a rite of passage. A group of teenagers refuse. And basically all hell breaks loose.
