Apples and oranges. It's not about looks; it's about money.

Get a master's and become certified as a nurse practitioner and you can punch your own ticket.

Get plastic surgery and you're just another RN.

I'm getting booty implants. I can't wait to wear a tight spandex dress with my booty sticking way out.

Why?
Do people tell you that you are ugly?
Or are you doing it for attention?

I know I'm coming across as hypocritical,but I'm doing the surgery to look normal,not for attention.
Noraml as in the median curve,not below it like I am now(facially). I'm not doing it for attention,and despite what anyone says,it seems men prefer a pretty face more than pretty body,which is bad for me.
I've seen to many men around here with women who have pretty or average faces but bad bodies.
I want to blend in when out in a crowd,because now I stick out due to my face.

No, I don't get told I am ugly. But I have had people make nasty remarks about my dark skin tone before. I feel that many men either prefer lightskin/biracial looking women or women with very curvy figures. As of right now, my figure is just average. Just okay. I want something that is going to make me look very sexy and grab the attention of many men. I would like a big butt.

Listen, just assess your wardrobe, choose accentuating makeup and find an attractive hairstyle. That's it. There's no need for surgery. Everyone has flaws, I'm pretty sure you don't resemble medusa. However if you keep thinking of yourself as the ugliest girl in the room, then you will start to give off that vibe. It shouldn't take surgery to mend self confidence.

What's wrong with dark skin? I would ignore that bc skin color is something that you can't change. Lighter skinned women can't change theirs either. Something that makes a girl feel sexy is a good outfit.

Except,a good outfit can't cover a bad face.

What is a bad face? Do you have warts growing out of your skin. Your face isn't disfigured as far as I can tell, so maybe you need some makeup application instructions. Be thankful that you have a successful career, and your face isn't disfigured due to circumstances that you have no control over.

But I'm 30. Don't drink hard,don't smoke,overeats sometimes,don't exercise like I should.

I thought by not drinking and smoking,I wouldn't age fast. I also don't stay out in the sun,don't tan,am not pale,and still look older than my age. My family,including my mom and sisters look younger than their ages,but not me.
The only difference that I could think of between all of us is that I work 70+ hrs a week,and I have been doing this for maybe 4 yrs now.
Ah-ha.
If you opted for the advanced degree, could you end up working fewer hours? Would you be making more money, which would enable you to get that surgery, also, down the road a bit?

I like slender, in proportion, but to each his own.
Have you tried buying some padding to see what it's really like, how much problem there might be in getting clothing to fit you properly if your bottom is out of proportion?
