Many surgeries could work toward that end. The older one gets the more I've read the fear of going under too much.

Lots of people get plastic surgery for various reasons. The most important thing to do is check the doctors credentials and make sure they are board certified. Also look at the doctors history and before and after pics for this specific surgery.
As for if she should or should not get this done its nobodies business but hers.

No, they canít.

Surgery doesnít cause dementia. Surgery risks increase with age due to the higher existence of other conditions that could create complications.

I don't get it. This woman is quite attractive and already has a really nice butt. She has said before that she's always been jealous of my wife's backside, which is on the big side for her frame, and my wife is jealous of her sister who has always been very tall and lean.

Both of these women look great in a swimsuit in their own way. Why can't people just be happy with the way they're put together. I've told my sister in-law that for every guy that's into women with curves, there is a guy that will be into a woman with a toned athletic body like hers. I just don't get why someone would take the risk.

Oh how worrisome.....

Just tell her to watch the TV series "Botched". That should put her off unnecessary cosmetic surgery.

Any invasive surgery has a risk of infection, sepsis, organ failure and death. Whatever the exact number is it's probably less risky than driving and more risky than taking a flight.

People don't think that the .1 % (or whatever it actually is) chance of complications doesn't apply to them.

If you asked people why they travel by air, they'll give you many reasons: to save time, see more of the world, work, etc. Are the unfortunate souls who were on a vacation trip when their plane crashed responsible for their own demise? The only way to be 100% sure of not dying like that is never fly.

Life is really just an endless series of risk/reward decisions. Is the taste and texture of a raw oyster sliding down the back of your throat worth the .001 % chance of vibrio vulnificus? Not to me, ecch.

I can't really understand the need for body enhancement, but I'm not in those people's heads so can't say it's not worth the risk.

If she goes through with it it will be interesting how she'll be able to sit or go potty comfortably.

Rearranging fat would probably look better and feel better, but I'm no doctor! My neighbor had a double mastectomy done. Each breast was done separately however, and one was reconstructed with an implant and the other with fat from her stomach. She much more prefers the look and feel of the one that was reconstructed using the body fat from her stomach.
