I've been meaning to get my nose done for years but can never afford it. I broke it when I was younger, it's crooked, I can't smell properly and I have sinus issues, can't remember what the dr said but something like the passage needs widening?
It doesn't make me vain to want it, I think it'll make a big difference to me physically and emotionally to finally fix it. It's not like I think about it all day or am embarrassed but sitting here now trying to breath through my nose is annoying.
I wouldn't mind some lipo but I'm abit scared to do anything like that, I should probably try exercising and eating right fist

I haven't gone 'under the knife' but I did have my spider and varicose veins injected in my legs. I HATED my legs and covered them up as much as possible. I hated going to the beach with people who had never seen my legs etc.
I would do it again in an instant. It's a long healing process so 6 months old not all the veins have vanished and one in particular still looks bruised but I am extremely happy that I did it and it has given me back a lot of confidence. My legs are my least favourite part of my body but with the veins on the way out it has allowed me to accept the other bits that I don't like.
If something really truly worked to get rid of stretchmarks I'd do it as soon as I had the money for it.
If that's vain well so be it. I don't mind a bit of vanity. I'm vain enough to look after my body and keep it fit and healthy, I'm vain enough to go out without makeup on, I'm vain enough that I shaved my head yesterday and don't feel insecure by the people who stared at my head, or even pointed and whispered as I was eating lunch and I'm vain enough that I can stand in the mirror naked, look at my body and be overall okay with what I see. The bits that made me feel extremely insecure I got rid of. I'm okay with saying 'hey I'm still in my 20's, I don't want the legs of a 40 year old woman.'

I would love to get a few things adjusted but its not necessary and I am happy with the way I look. But in saying that I have a heap of friends (I'm Korean and stereotyping my nationality) who have done cosmetic surgery on their eyes, nose, boobs, butt... You name it I'll know someone who's done it. 99% of Korean celebrities are literally plastic. Even the boys/men. But each to their own... If it'll make you happy and you have the money then go for it. I have nothing against c-Sections either. I don't know what all the fuss is about.

I do, however, have issues regarding unnecessary interventions and uninformed c/s, but I mostly just focus on myself and do what is best for *me*.

I try to explain to dh what it feels like to breath and the only way is to hold his nostrils, then he gets it.

No I probably wouldn't do it for purely cosmetic purposes, maybe for things like a breast reduction (if I needed it which I don't), or getting rid of excess skin (which again I don't need). I am not against it really but think a lot of self esteem probs would be better 'fixed' by dealing with the real issues rather than 'fixing' it with surgery. To me, it's not the body part that is flawed and needs work, it's the person's perception of themselves, usually as a result from unrealistic expectations of society.
I also dont really see dying hair etc as the same thing as they're not permanent.

I have issues with caesareans FOR MYSELF because I simply don't want one. I am pro-natural birth because I think it is best for the baby in the vast majority of instances, and overall better for the mother too... but don't think any woman should have to have a vaginal birth if she doesn't want one. I don't want to be forced into a caesarean, so I don't think anyone should be forced into a vaginal birth.
I am obviously pro-natural, I just cannot relate to anyone who would want a caesarean... but I still think every woman deserves the right to make the choice for herself, just as with cosmetic surgery.
That said, I do think we'd live in a better world if we were taught that vaginal was natural and safe and normal, and that the skin we are born in is beautiful and natural and normal and perfect as it is too... but we don't really live in that world, and I understand why people will easily solve any issues they have by fixing them through surgery than spending years and years trying to come to terms with the fact that they're just born with something society has deemed unattractive or whatever.
