    I used to want a hand job (no, not like that :rolleyes:) because my hands are the size of a ten year old's hand, on a 5'11" adult.

    Now, though, I don't. They're still inconvenient, but they're part of who I am as well.
    Guys will love being with a girl with smaller hands. It'll make their junk look so much bigger

    How is it inconvenient? Do you have trouble holding things, or is it just aesthetics? I wouldn't know how you could make a hand proportionately larger...

    The only thing I'd get done is to get rid of excess eyelid skin, because I do NOT want droopy eyelids when I'm older.

    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.
    Sounds like a very cool job you have there
    LASIK is a no GO! I've read so many stories of blindness
    What about surgery abroad do you get loads of those?

    Good Luck are you having any sort of implant put it? If you want a smaller nose don't get any sort of implant, my friend did, she went with MYA and her nose ended up BIGGER. I have another friend who had her rhino done in Thailand (random) for like £1,000 and it came out perfectly so I think it's all based on your communication with your doctor
    Yeah, some people have nose jobs to make their noses bigger - small noses that are out of proportion to the face can induce self consciousness just as much as a big nose. I would never go abroad, I'd rather recover in my own home after such a ghastly operation!

    England and Wales courts don't have jurisdiction for surgery abroad, so we don't get them ones. I do insurance work, so all the claims are screened for things like that before they land on my desk. Which is nice.

    It is a wonderful job, I love it. Especially the gory bits. Amputations and stuff 0=)

    EDIT: Oh and my best friend is an optician and he hates LASIK with a passion as much as I do. Hehe.

    :rofl: But would it really be satisfying, wondering if it's just an illusion...?

    It does look out of proportion to see hands with a 12cm span on someone tall and with very large feet ... but it's actually inconvient in terms of holding things.

    Ever asked for a 'handful' of popcorn? Well, I don't get much from that. I bought three rolls of wrapping paper for Christmas, and couldn't carry them all to the till. :lol:

    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:
    Sounds cool, I'll give it a read.

    Does he enjoy dispensing?

    I had surgery to correct scoliosis, which made my torso look a lot more normal. There were also medical reasons to have the surgery, but the surgeon managed to get some awesome cosmetic improvement.

    I wouldn't get anything else done though.

    Haha well I assume so =) He occassionally goes off on one about quantum mechanics and the amazing properties of light. To which I smile and nod and tell him I don't understand a word he's saying.

    Yeah he has to deal with people after messed up refractive surgery as well.

    What a horrible thing to go through for that girl... she looks completely different. I'd hate to lose my identity like that... I wouldn't even be able to recognise myself in the mirror!!

    I wouldn't have anything done as I'm perfectly happy with my untampered, blemished body and face...

    I find it to be a conceited, self-absorbed thing to do.
    This exactly, I'm quite happy with my ugly mug thank you very much!!
