I would make a list of features that you're unhappy with (a short one), and what can be done to ameliorate them. Research the sort of procedures that can achieve your goals...then search for a plastic surgeon who specializes in that. I'm seeing 3 different ones at the moment.
Thanks. I have tried Botox to lift my inner eyebrows but that didn't turn out so well.
350 dollars and all the dermatologist did was put the Botox in between my eyebrows,
it didn't lift my eyebrows at all. What a waste.
I'm fine with my body,so really no complaints there.
My main focus is my face because that's the first thing people look at,and it seems to be the basis for my unattractiveness.
Looking into Sculptra and Juvederm now. I didn't know those were fairly cheap.

It's more profitable to be lucky and add education or plastic surgery .without the luck you're just right back where you started

Those things are a thing of the past for jobs to carry. More and more companies are ditching those things because they can't afford it.
Seriously. A couple of jobs ago, the company i worked for dropped the retirement plan and dental insurance to save money.

My current company is trying to add more benefits to be a more attractive employer. The company has pretty low overhead, so it makes sense. But I am really behind on retirement savings, since for the last 5 years I haven't had a company sponsored plan. In some ways, being married is the best retirement plan.

Yes,being married is the one of the best economic plans(provided your married to a guy that's financially stable).
Financially stable guys usually look for attractive wives.
One of the pluses of getting some type of surgery.

The notion of altering your body to conform to this ridiculous society versus actually bettering yourself. Looks always fade, knowledge doesn't (at least until you turn senile).

Only in America.

What type of plastic surgery do you have in mind?


I'd like to say as a good looking woman in my 20s that my hard work and character have gotten me farther than my looks. Good looks can get you a good jobs in nightlife, a few dates with guys who just want to have sex, dancing partners at dancing places, maybe a few sugar daddy propositions from 60 year old men (viagra=they want sex), and a free oil change if you're lucky.

Good looks won't further your career by much and it certainly won't make you a happier person.

But I have gotten to a good college and had good money before I went back to school by working my ass off, planning ahead, and using my brain. Good look will only get you to date a bunch of horny guys who just want you for a few months until the next hot trophy comes along and eventually he will settle with someone he can relate to on his level...not some plastic bimbo or young thing with no interests or education outside of herself.

Brow bone surgery,mine is too heavy(frontal bossing) for a woman. Makes my look mad or something when I'm really not. Bone reshaping costs around 40,000. Its the most expensive plastic surgery out there.
That's about the only thing wrong with my face. I am going to try Juvederm for the dark eye hollows.
To even look average or slightly above would be a blessing for me. My body is fine,I'm ok with it.


Have you ever been ugly?
Its probably easy for you to say your looks haven't gotten you anywhere,but how would you know?
You are looking from the outside in,and you even admit you are good looking.
Have you been taunted because of your looks? Rejected?

Plastic surgery is bettering yourself.
The reason I have to conform is because I live in this world. I have to get a job like everyone else.
