"dermabrasion"
2. Dermabrasion

Although it sounds like a medieval torture tactic, Surgical Skin Planning (Dermabrasion) has been performed 68,636 times in the US so far this year.  The procedure is up 8% from last year.  With a surgeon ranging from $300 for a small area, to thousands for a more in depth session.  Basically wrinkles and facial blemishes are literally rubbed out as a surgeon uses a high-speed, rotating tool to scrape away the top layers of skin, leaving softer, newer layers. Women make up 88 percent of dermabrasion patients. Recovery time is typically two to six weeks, but the face may have a red tint for three months.

    After having breastfeeding 3 kids and losing the baby weight, I’ve been thinking about getting a “mommy makeover” (breast, tummy tuck and lipo). My husband is against it, but he doesn’t have to deal with the pooch. We will see…..

    Give more attention to your “inner beauty” than your outer beauty.  This is far more attractive whether you are male or female.

    I would like to have moles removed and an deep facial cleanse.  That’s it!  Like my grandma use to say goin’ to leave here minus a few teeth and hair like the good Lord intended.  When some of these folks hit the pearly gates God’s not going to recognized them!!!  Plus any surgery is major in my opinion vanity can kill you.

    When people lose a lot of weight quickly they do need to have that skin cut away or the breast lifted.

    Sort of related, my co worker & I are having a debate right now; some women breast feed after getting implants (Tori Spelling for example). I personally wouldn’t because 1) I don’t know the risks for my child & 2) you pay all that money to get them done & they can change shape. My co worker has implants & she said she would, would you?

    Wow I remember when these surgeries cost AT LEAST 10,000… I can’t believe a nose job is just a few thousand these days? I might just get one!

    I’m surprised that you did not have the butt implants on here,which I think is on the rise.If money was no option,honestly,I still would not have any cosmetic surgeries only because I am comfortable with who I am

      Yeah. Should have had butt implants on here. All these chicks now have these honestly ridiculous looking a$$es!
