Imagine if you will that your spouse, partner, significant other or otherwise nearest and dearest was a plastic surgeon. A cosmetic one, who lived a life of tummy tucks, nose jobs, boob enhancements and everything else feature changing. Would you let them practice on you - especially a procedure that they hadn't done before?

I agree with rj on this one, in part, because if I loved and trusted someone enough to marry them, I'm sure I'd trust their professional abilities, but one thing I don't want to do is get plastic surgery. I want to grow old as gracefully as I can. Wrinkles are ok. They're a part of life and I don't particularly mind them. And gray hair is fine with me too, although I don't have much. But liposuction-type procedures? Ummm, yeah, I would probably have that done if my spouse were a plastic surgeon. A new technique for removing unsightly fat, no scars, very few after effects, easy healing? Yeah, absolutely. Isn't gonna happen though. So I guess I'll be a wrinkly, round old woman. lol But I'll still be me. And I'll be able to use my age as an excuse to get away with things. Ha! And I'll join the Red Hat Society too. I'll have to find my local chapter and see what their age requirements are. I wanna go to Red Hat meetings - I've seen them out before, and they aren't averse to cocktailing, from what I've seen. I should fit right in.

I absolutely agree Nova. I can see you in the red hat - you'll be the one uprooting the tree and driving it to freedom (remember the film?). I shan't be surrendering to the knife either. Mind you if someone could syphon off 20 pounds off my middle I'd be very happy. LOL.

Coming from the deep end of the gene pool, even at my advanced age, I have no need of plastic surgery............ok, maybe a face lift! LOL But no, I wouldn't. I am my own person and quite happy to let nature takes it's course, not someone else's guinea pig. Silly man to even think it - a knife cuts both ways you know! ROFL He couldn't run fast or far enough if didn't turn out!

I suppose that depends on how good I thought they were at their job! Just because I love someone doesn't mean I can't recognise their weaknesses, and if I thought there was any chance of a less that perfect job then they'd need to be finding another guinea pig to experiment on.

I don't think tha I can envisage having any plastic surgery done anyway. But I think that I would be happier with someone other than my spouse slicing and dicing.

Ummmm I don't think so - if they practiced on a few others first then maybe, but still - letting my hubby cut me open doesn't seem like a good thing to do LOL

Good question because I am dang near desperate to have bigger firmer boobs that don't come in a bra for $40 from Victoria Secret. But if they were inexperienced, absolutely not. Let them use paying clients as guinea pigs. Once they get good at it then sure, why not!

P1key?! I am slightly vexed!!!!!!!! I would not let anybody near me with a Knife.....regardless if they were a surgeon or otherwise. What in the world made this idea pop up in your Mind? When I was in Labor w/ my baby.....( 14 hours ....seemed like 14 yrs. ) any how....I specifically requested that there be no student doctors in the room , " Helping " me! But as " my " luck would have it.....I think there were only 2 or three Doctors in the whole Hospital , that didn't get to check how FAr I was Dialated! ( UGH!!!!!!!!!!!) Some nightmares....never go away!!!!! lol............... But to answer your question.......He!! no ! I wouldn't " consciously ? " let anyone with a knife near me! You have to tell me why you thought of this!

Don't be vexed Ag. I was reading a magazine about the wives of plastic surgeons who let their husbands experiment on them. That's all. My wife had a similar experience including one overseas doctor who gave her an internal exam whilst wearing a huge diamond ring on his finger - under his glove! Don't worry, no knives are coming your way. LOL.

But they have to practise on somebody. Better it was overseen by a surgeon.

But it won't be me as I have no interest in plastic surgery of any kind. We are who we are. I'm not hiding from anything. But if you are talking surgery in general, I would allow it if I needed surgery.

Good God NO!For one I would feel that maybe he wouldn't do as good of a job on me that he wouldn't try as hard to be his best because it would be oh well, I made a mistake and that be that. I would never get a procedure done by a spouse,partner or family memeber. I would go elsewhere but I wouldn't get a procedure done unless the Doctor had alot of experience firsthand but that first hand isn't gonna be on me.

I would never have anything but vital life saving surgery so there would be no way I would let them practice, no matter how much I loved them they would have to find another guinea pig. Ellie :D

I feel the same way. I like my hospitals and surgeons somewhere that I am not.
5 Jun 08
I dont mind hospitals as have ben frequently but only for medical check ups, Ive never (touch wood) had surgery apart from having to have my back teeth taken out when I was younger!! I vague memories, it was a school day. My mum took me to the dentist and he said he couldnt do and that I had to go to the hospital to have it done, I was awake when they did it. The gave me a certificate for being brave and put my teeth in a little glass jar for me to keep (not sure why, Ive still got them somewhere I think!!??) Then my mum treated my to a good old McD's, not sure if I went back to school or not???

LOL. Absolutely not. Its funny I should come across this discussion, because I was eating lunch today in the mall and saw a woman who had obviously had a boob job, but they were about 5 inches lower than they should have been. Very strange looking and she had on a halter top without a bra. Not real attractive and enough to make me think twice about having cosmetic surgery.
@p1kef1sh (45638)

Sounds like she should take them back and get a refund. I thought that the idea was for them not to go south sooner than they do. She seems to have actively encouraged it. Packed the case and waved goodbye!
