Hey Tam I had moles on my face too and I always used to think they were soooooooooooooo HUGE that everyone was looking at them. I don't worry about them so much anymore.....but I have some info for you. I had some moles removed by a plastic surgeon in my teens, but I would only recommend that if the moles were in-line with a natural crease. My surgeon made my scars continue into my smile lines. The scars are barely noticeable these days. However THE BEST treatment for moles these days (for cosmetic reasons ONLY) is to have them frozen off with liquid nitrogen....like with warts (wart treatments from the chemist....dunno if they work or not). Some took 3 treatments, but I do have one stubborn one that still hasn't gone after 6 treatments. It's painless, but you look like you have bites where your warts are for about a week....after that they fade. My doc bulk-billed me so it didn't even cost me anything....but even having to pay and get reimbursed from Medicare is cheaper than cosmetic surgery! LOL
And to the rest of you asking about who's considered other forms of surgery.......I would LOVE to have a boob lift.....I'm 34 and have boobs like my grandma.
Of course they'll probably look better after all the weight's gone and I've strengthened those muscles that lift your breasts....but seriously....how far are they gonna lift??? I wish I knew. But I can't have one because I haven't had children....or I should rather say "I won't have one".
I've also looked into liposuction and liposculpture. With the amount they had to suck out of me it would take two operations and cost me $20000....although they did say if the surgeon "saw me first" he may agree to do it for half that.
But the ops would entail having liposuction on my stomach, legs, back, shoulders, butt and above my breasts.......it was really, really humiliating! And I didn't have it done because I couldn't afford it....but to have all that fat sucked out and disappear overnight....I'd be the star of my own "Extreme Makeover".
Then I asked myself the question did I really put in every effort to lose weight the "normal" way? And the answer was "No!" So I took my $10000 I had and went to Egypt instead! LOL
