    I'd like a thigh lift once I lose all this weight. I can never get the outer thighs all the way down.

    Don't be so quick to assume the above - perhaps in your case your body bounced back - we all don't. I wish more than anything else I'd had csections. Here I am more than a year post vaginal with my 2nd - with a prolapse - I can't exercise more than a stroll without my uterus bulging out into my underwear, can't use tampons as they fall out and my physio has spent more time down there than DH! I am facing corrective surgery that I don't want but can't see any other alternative.

    I often joke with DH about getting botox- it's something I might consider having seen how it looks when done well on friends.
    Actual surgery though... no. I don't think so. If it were reconstructive- say if I'd been in an accdent- then I might. But purely cosmetic? I don't think I could justify it. I could do so much more with that kind of money. Sure, it'd be nice to get rid of the mummy tummy or hoist the girls up to where they used to be- but I guess I'm just not that bothered. I would feel (this is me and no reflection on others) very superficial, spending thousands of dollars to "fix" a perfectly serviceable body part. My tummy looks like it does because it's been home to two beautiful babies, b00bs aren't what they used to be but hey, they're still nourishing an 18 month old toddler. I have stretch marks *shrug* no one sees them but DH and I think because they don't bother me- they don't bother him. I'm not a size 8, nor will I ever be- I can live with that.

    I have had plastic surgery 😁 I had a tummy tuck just over a year ago and no regrets would do it again in a heartbeat! I had quite bad muscle separation and also a saggy pocket of stubborn fat that hung over my c/s scar. I no longer have a c/s scar but do have a barely noticeable hip to hip scar. It was so worth it! I would cry at least weekly about how ugly that pocket made me feel and can say I have not cried since! My body is nowhere near perfect and I'm in the process of losing some weight and have started an exercise program to tone up etc but when I can put pants on and not have them roll down under my fat pocket or have to pull them up over the fat pocket apron it's just awesome! I have found that my hips do seem wider and I'm not 100% happy with them as I don't think my surgeon did enough Lipo to them when trying to make fit my new belly but i understood that that could happen. Hoping with weight loss and exercise they go down a bit more! Honestly if you really want your tummy done then actually look into it, it might not be as out of reach as you think and I personally think that after putting our bodies through the trauma of birthing babies we do deserve to be happy with our bodies (ok within reason of course) I would become almost depressed about my stomach and no amount of 'but look at your beautiful children blah blah blah' would change my feelings on my stomach. Of course I'm grateful for my kids! Anyway I would also like a breast lift and implants to give me 2 breasts the same size! I will do it but not until I've finished my uni degree and I'm working. I would like full DDs not the saggy DDs I have now 😉 AND I will also admit I've had Botox in my eyebrows to try to lift my eyelids a fraction but I don't think it worked and I have had filler in my lips AND will be doing it again to top up! My top lip is barely noticeable which is why I had filler done. I had half a ml spread between top and bottom so really minimal but next time I'll get a whole ml put in. Trust me when I say you wouldn't notice lol it's for me, nobody else! I rarely even wear make up! 😀 also with the fillers/Botox I didn't pay top dollar that the clinics charge, I saw a lady (RN) who worked for herself and costs were about half of what the clinics charge!

    I'm not sure if you were referring to what I said about my "beautiful children" etc but if so, just to clarify, I was answering the OP as to how *I* feel about my own body. I don't expect anyone to feel the same iykwim. Birth wasn't a trauma for *me* and while I'm no swimsuit model now, I'm ok with that. My body changed a lot after my first child and it took me some time to come to terms with that. Having my second ten years later, I was older and wiser and fully expected it to change again. It hasn't all that much but there are some changes. I guess I never expected to grow a whole new person and have no signs of that on my skin if that makes sense- so it wasn't a surprise and therefore I didn't need to make peace with it. I've also read so much in recent years about the sexualisation of the female body in the media, advertising etc and the unrealistic standards of beauty that are determined for us by advertising firms and Hollywood film directors and I make a conscious choice to not buy into it- I'm contrary by nature
    When it comes to other people, they can and should get cosmetic surgery if they want it, I've no issue with that, it's a highly personal decision

    I would love to fix my boobs- if $$$ weren't an issue. For someone my age- mine are horrible. I'm not sure if it's because I gained and lost so much weight in such a little time, or if my skin was not very elastic and stretched. My boobs resemble water balloons and are very unattractive. Maybe, if it weren't so exy although- you couldn't pay me to go to thailand or somewhere like that to get it done. It is not worth that risk to me.

    I've started saving for a boob job. I started out with large dd's and now have (luckily still perky) barely b cups. I've never been one to have them hanging out, I'm actually quite prudish with cleavage, but I like having them.

    I'm also open to minimal botox as I age. Just enough to keep me fresh.

    I got mine done in Brisbane for $9000, sooo many of my friends (I'm 23 so basically all of my friends have boob jobs as that's the Gold Coast for ya) have gone to Thailand and have amazing work done. Another friend just went over in feb $4900! Thailand surgeon including flights, accom, hospital stay, pressure garments, surgery. Amazing work all American doctors cleanest impeccable hospital. I will be going after #2 to get mine fixed! And they have neater scars than my surgeon's.
