Gastric Band? Botox?

A Collegue of mine has had a Gastric Band fitted privately, another friend has botox.
Im so tempted to have some * work done*
I had read up on gastric band and it says its keyhole surgery with low risk, much as other operations. Im tempted about the botox... as my eye brows have dropped! and my eyes dont look as large as they once was.! my friends botox makes her look great..
What are your views on this...

its roughly 5k for the gastric band, give or take a few hundren depending on where you go.

Id really like a nose job, i hate my nose! i could spend a fortune on my improvements! But id have to * go away * to do it, my OH would go mad if he knew i wanted anything. He doesnt agree in taking such drastic actions.

I second that

I'd get work done tomorrow, it's just if anything went wrong, i'd be leaving my family behind through being selfish, in a way.

PCnutta!

If that foto in your profile is anything to go by, you'll be stunning when youre an octagenarian!

:oops:

Listen to Onlyme23 & Shaunco! Growing older only means we are more beautiful in different ways!

:thumbsup:

You want a gastric band?? Please tell me you are not being serious?
You are stunning as it is. Dont do it hun.
Maybe you need to work on your confidence rather than your image? You have every reason to be confident :):):)

Aww thanks for that guys, though that pic on my profile is a year ago and ive put weight on since then which is why maybe the confidence thing comes into it. Plus they are professionally done, lighting etc... amazing what they can do hey! Maybe i ought to change it for recent one. Yep think i will do that now! LOL just to scare you all! LOL

Think when my ankles better i ought to focus on confidence building , self esteem rather & healthy eating than take the * easy* way out. Its just hard with me loving Galaxy bars so much!

Im not a big fan of plastic surgery, I like women with less make-up and think your family would say they love you just the way you are.

That said, if its something that you really want and will boost your self confidence etc... then its the individuals own choice.

Overall I think its something not to be taken lightly at all and the key part is the reasoning behind the surgery its important not to do it for anyone else!

Gastric band surgery is risky, even riskier the more obese you are.

Botox, no studies have been done on the long term effects. Also, most people don't realise you have to have repeated injections every 3 months to mantain the effect eg to forehead wrinkles. It is not a once only fix.

My godson has Botox injections to try and improve the muscles in his legs....he has cerebral palsy. His parents are aware there maybe long term side effects but have no choice if they want to give him every opportunity to just be able to stand up on his own....let alone walk. That sort of puts things in perspective for me, anyway I could never afford the long term treatment which would be needed.

Your HOTTTTTTTT why do you need work doing?????? :thinking:

well iv had a breats uplift that went drastically wrong!!!! .......... and left me with boobs,
36B one side and 36A the other
used to be a 36DD and didnt want reduction !


but even though iv had this bad experience i would deffo have facial surgery or botox to keep/retain my looks

sod gettin old gracefully i wanna stay as young lookin as i can, as long as i can, and blow what anyone else thinks !
i think the way i feel about my self is much more important than the way the world sees me

and i if feel good.... i feel young and confidant !

i would do it for me though ... no one else !

if you cant love yourself noone else can love you!

so start at home and love the home/body your in ... and if you need to redecorate the sixties style wallpaper .... GO AHEAD BABY YEAH!!!!! lool

We are never happy with what we have, bigger boobed women want smaller ones, and smaller boobed women want bigger ones, women on the larger side want to be smaller and women on the skinny side want to be volumptuous (however the hell you spell it) in life we should cherish what we have and not what we dont. Whatever is on the outside is only our protective cover, its what we have inside thats valuable, hence why we are given the cover to protect it x
