I've heard Botox is the same crap that causes botulism in bad canned food. Bo-something toxin, is where it derived its name. And botched jobs can be deadly. Just take care of your body and exercise.

Botulism. Botox is also used in folks with Cerebral Palsy to relax the muscles and many other ailments, but to look like Joan Rivers or Nancy Pelosi, I have to pass

LOL, at least Joan Rives is open about her million surgeries, I can almost respect that.

Nancy Pelosi, I like to beat her within an inch of her life with her own gavel.

LOVE it all! Haven't had any done YET, but totally plan on it! Not to look fake, but just to enhance what my mama gave me!
Getting my breast done in a year, I really want a nose job, and there are a few other things I would like to have done.
My husband hates the idea of me having my breast done but I have wanted implants since I was 14 years old and I have decided to gift them to myself when I turn 30!

I think it's fine to have some plastic surgery as long as you don't go overboard with it.

I live in what a lot of people think is the plastic surgery capital of the world, and in reality, the main ones who seem to get this junk (botox, boob jobs, etc.) are the women who's best years are behind them who cannot grow old gracefully and the younger women who want to make it in Hollywood. Your regular see-them-on-the-street-and-in-the-mall type chicks dont have this.

The fake look is horrible HORRIBLE and I dont see why women make themselves uglier like that.

Chowhound, I'm surprised you would even say this... You should know better than to make a sweeping generalization about the 10 million people who live in L.A. County!

There are plenty of us who wouldn't be caught dead with breast implants, lip implants, brain implants, etc.! I'm one of them. Do I like aging? No, of course not. But at least I can take the "you look great for your age" compliment gracefully without having to think about how much money I spent on it!

I voted Plastic Surgery in General because I've sen some amazing things done that let people live greatly improved lives. Unfortunately we have taken advantage and some stuff has become the new normal and that's a shame. Especially since cutting into a healthy body for the wrong reasons can lead to some pretty bad results that last forever.

All those bleached blonde pouty-lipped nose-bobbed boob-enhanced bum-lifted and tummy-tucked girls all look alike to me. Little clones who look as though they came off a factory production line.

There's nothing quite so weird as a woman in her 60s with normal signs of aging sporting a pair of uplifted tight boobs which don't move when the rest of her does ...

I would prefer a woman who is all natural, but I can certainly understand why some would have certain things done. I don't really understand the lip thing, but I can see why someone may want her nose to be smaller or shaped differently. And I can understand why a middle aged lady who's had children may want some work done. But I do hate the super-fake look that some seem to adopt. I saw a woman once who would have been one of the most beautiful women I had ever laid eyes upon, except she had these ridiculously huge fake breasts. It truly ruined her entire appearance, which was a crying shame.

I used to work in a place where it was roughly 75% women. It was a heavily dominated female environment. But the vast majority of the women working there had fake breasts, big fake nails, inflated lips, layers of make up etc. It was unbelievable. It was disheartening to be honest. They all looked like plastic dolls. A terrible versions of Pam Anderson.

But what made me happy was that us boys who worked there only ever flirted and complimented the very few women with no surgeries. Not because we hated the other ones, but we just found the real ones [I hate that term btw] a lot more attractive with their smaller boobs, real hair etc. My faith in men kinda grew a bit stronger, lol. I thought I was the only man there that fond the other fake women repulsive, but I was happy that the rest have the same thought as me.
