People are getting their belly buttons reshaped now.



It seems crazy that someone would actually worry about the appearance of their belly button.

I'm sure there'll be a special on MTV. They guy who got the calf implants might be interested.

Ugh I saw that episode yesterday. Before that guy got the surgery his legs weren't even that bad!



Don't even get me started on the "Extreme Makeover" show...

I used to be addicted to EM, but then the episodes got redundant. I can only see so many veneers and nose jobs before they all look the same. Can I just get a half ass makeover? Just the personal trainer and dermatologist? (I'd take the stylists and free clothes, too.)

Belly buttons? There is a such thing as an ugly belly button?



The only thing that tops is vulva enhancement.. http://www.plasticsurgerycenters.com...ures/vulva.htm



I'll keep my belly button and my vulva just the way it is thank you!

I'm at a loss for words. I'm afraid to click on that URL. I don't know if that procedure is a gratification thing but, ya.. it's odd.

weird.. hehe.



About EM.. I've seen it a couple times and some were nice. One lady worked outdoors her whole life and looked 20 years older than she was. Another show had a cancer survivor. I'm glad they got help. And from looking at the before shots of the veneer people.. they needed them.



I'm not 100% opposed to plastic surgery. Some people go too far though.

Hmm, I could see someone with a really awful outie wanting to get a little reduction surgery here and there. :har:

There are some before and after pictures here: http://www.jromano.com/text/umbilicoplasty.html



I am offended. The befores show cute outies (like mine!)



Why would anyone want to get rid of an outie??



Especially if it meant surgery?



Here are some pictures of the actual surgery: http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/bell...n_surgery.html

ooooh...I went to the site that monkeyandbunny linked. And then I looked at everything else that dr. does. All this talk of "scraping off the top layer of skin" on your face, injecting weird things, moving fat around, and lot of cutting and sucking. Makes my skin want to crawl right off.

Blech. I know that an option to reduce wrinkles is having fat removed from your bum and injected into your face.



Assface. I'm so simple.

wow...



just yesterday i learned that a classmate of mine just had liposuction done less than 2 weeks ago

he had the kind were they give you a fake six pack in addition to removing extra fat



i find it so interesting...

i didnt even know they could do things like that

he then proceeded to explain other surgeries like one that can give you fake biceps



and i dont think its necessarily a bad thing, especially if it helps someone that is totally unhappy/uncomfortably with their body to feel better about themself

I don't think plastic surgery is a bad thing, just as long as you don't go overboard or do it because you think it'll make you a better person. I know lots of women who have had a breast lift after having kids and they feel much better about themselves. But then there's that woman who wants to be a real life Barbie. She's scary.

Navel reconstruction seems silly but it's nothin' compared to Jocelyne Wildenstein. I read about her in a magazine a few years ago. She decided she wanted to look like a jungle cat and has had countless plastic surgeries to alter her looks. Personally I think she looks really scary, but I hope for her sake that she is happy with the transformation.



Here's a before picture: http://website.lineone.net/~a1/jocelyne/1.htm

And an after (note eye slant, cheekbones, etc): http://website.lineone.net/~a1/jocelyne/13.htm



A gallery, mostly fuzzy pics: http://website.lineone.net/~a1/jocelyne/



The above gallery has a link to another extreme example, Amanda Lepore. To me it looks like she's wearing wax lips, but apparently they're products of surgery. Be warned if you go to the gallery that some of the pics are nude shots.



A clothed picture of Amanda: http://website.lineone.net/~a1/jocelyne/lepore/2.htm



Next to that, a little belly button tuck seems rather tame....

A few years back I saw a show that featured some woman who had plastic surgery to look ugly. That was super weird.

Have you guys seen that show Nip/Tuck. It's a great show, but the surgery scenes are quite graphic.

That reminds me, I used to be jealous of my sister's bellybutton because she had an outie and I didn't. (Incidentally, she wanted an innie like mine.)

Incidentally, I know a guy that doesn't have a belly button. So far I have declined his invitation to look at it.

I think the belly button thing is too far. In fact, I think most cosmetic surgery goes too far and looks obvious and fake when it is completed.



I have not had major surgery by any means, but I did have a few moles removed by a plastic surgeon. They were irritated by clothing or rubbing or whatever. I am so glad they are gone now. My belly button is staying right where it's at, though.
