I've only recently learned to like myself. Why should I want to go and mess around with what I am?

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

So...you're saying you really don't want a horn screwed into your forehead? How about some bionic ears so you can hear what people are saying miles away? *shudder*

If it were possible to get bionic legs that made me leap tall buildings and I could run at 200mph for miles and miles, I'd get that surgery! X-D

Really? Wow.

I've had plastic surgery but not in the manner that is exciting. Plastic surgery was used to place mesh over the spot where my stomach muscles once were when they were removed after being invaded by a tumor.

So I used plastic surgery in the manner for which it was originally created.

I used to be EternalStudent on these forums until the switch over. So don't get excited..I'm not someone new and exciting. I'm just me :P

Just because the name includes the word "plastic" doesn't mean patients who have this surgery end up with a face full of fake stuff. The name isn't taken from the synthetic substance but from the Greek word plastikos, which means to form or mold (and which gives the material plastic its name as well).

Plastic surgery is a special type of surgery that can involve both a person's appearance and ability to function. Plastic surgeons strive to improve patients' appearance and self-image through both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.

* Reconstructive procedures correct defects on the face or body. These include physical birth defects like cleft lips and palates and ear deformities, traumatic injuries like those from dog bites or burns, or the aftermath of disease treatments like rebuilding a woman's breast after surgery for breast cancer.
* Cosmetic (also called aesthetic) procedures alter a part of the body that the person is not satisfied with. Common cosmetic procedures include making the breasts larger (augmentation mammoplasty) or smaller (reduction mammoplasty), reshaping the nose (rhinoplasty), and removing pockets of fat from specific spots on the body (liposuction). Some cosmetic procedures aren't even surgical in the way that most people think of surgery — that is, cutting and stitching. For example, the use of special lasers to remove unwanted hair and sanding skin to improve severe scarring are two such treatments.
