All of us have seen women, in real life or pictures, who have gone too far with plastic surgery. I bet all of them started out thinking it would just be the eyelid lift and the Botox, and then the chin and neck scuplting plus a little bit of lipo ... and down the road they are on their third calf reshaping and getting fillers in their hands. I am glad that you recognize that something not quite right is going on, and I hope you will go see somebody about that.
Her thinking reminds me of those that get just one tiny tatoo-than that turns into two tatts than before you know it they are covered in tatts.

Whatever happed to being happy with whom you are? I cannot say if I think she is attractive or not because it doesn't matter but I will there are some serious issues that need to be worked out mentally.

I wish her the best no matter what she decides.

Why not use this time and channel your energy into something that will help you grow, like volunteering to help others, reading or taking a class to learn something new? (perhaps you already do these, but this whole plastic surgery mini obsession seems very unhealthy to me. More than likely you dont need to see a plastic surgeon, but a therapist)
To me she is far from being attractive.......as a result of reading this thread and another thread she is no longer a attractive woman.

Its unfortunate that a lot of people have no idea as to what their value as a person is other than their looks.

Chronically perceiving yourself as a work-in-progress, always finding some little thing that needs to be tweaked and improved, is one form of body dysmorphic disorder, and is a mental health issue. You don't need to be perfect, anyway. None of us do. Sometimes it's the slightly odd little things, the freckles or slight irregularities that are what enchant a guy.

Do yourself a massive favor: bear this notion in mind and read back through this thread.

My two cents worth and I haven't read many other posts so it may have already been addressed but you have body dysmorphia and need to see a therapist who can help you deal with your intense lack of ability to accept yourself without massive amounts of plastic surgery. This is not normal behaviour. No-one is perfect and few expect perfection from the person they love. You really need to seek therapy hon.

Well for one people need to stop feeding into this and telling her how hot and gorgeous she is. It's seriously overload. You are giving her the fuel that she needs. Just give her advice without commenting on her looks.

I worried about that initially, JJ, but I realize I'm exhausted with this whole process and the only thing paid for and fully planned are my breasts and my jaw. It's been 2 months and I'm already tired of this with my rhinoplasty and lipo to go by November. I have my rhinoplasty consult on the 9th and seriously I'm over it, just trying to weather this process out for the feeling of accomplishment.

That's like impossible for me. The first thing I do when I wake up is check my multiple plastic surgery forums. Then I check my email which gives me updates on plastic surgery news. When I youtube I check out plastic surgery network. I know this is temporary because I have an obssessive personality and have been temporarily obsessed with many, many, many other things, I just know I need to get round 2 out of the way to get back to my normal life.
