Too old for plastics?



Recommended Posts

I'm 38 too and I get where you're coming from. The thought crossed my mind once or twice too but I've decided I'm definitely going to have a couple of areas tweaked once I reach goal. I figure I spent a lot of years thinking I didn't deserve to be happy, and now? Well now I want it so I'm going to do it and I don't have time for anyone else's opinion on the matter. :)

I’m 46 and I’m scheduled to do my Tummy Tuck, breast lift and Augmentation Jan 7th. You’re not too old. Bc if you’re too old then I’m wayyy too old. I don’t think 46 is old and I don’t feel old either.
Age is just a number😊
Are you at goal? What do are you looking to do?

I'm 58 and I know I will be looking into plastics once I reach my goal. I'll probably wait a few months after I reach goal to see if my skin naturally tightens a bit. But I'm almost completely positive a breast lift is in my future.

Age ain't nothin but a number 😉

I hope you do what feels right for you.

Speaking as a 39 year old, I can officially state you are not old 😂😂. Seriously though there is no age limit on anything. I'm planning on getting a breast lift and 360 body lift next year, to tighten up my loose skin left after 100 pounds of weight loss. As other posters have said, your skin may improve with time, doing pump classes three times a week for the last 6 months has considerably improved my skin. And my muscle tone.

I am 61 and feel like a teenager - And, told I often look like one. I Celebrate my plastics one year anniversary January 21st! I considered it another reward and step toward long term health, happiness and wholeness after sleeve a year before. Waiting to do arms and neck maybe the end of 2021 to give body a rest from procedures. After plastics, I feel you are definitely more motivated and psyched to apply new eating and better lifestyle choices. I recommend it wholeheartedly. It will be a game changer.

38 isn't old at all, definitely not too old for surgery. I am almost 58 and am contemplating it.

I believe as women we always seem to be racing that clock I just had surgery at 65 years old. but I totally understand where you're coming from. I bought tons of anti wrinkle creams when I turned 40. If you will feel happier with some touch ups then go for it You owe it to yourself to feel as content with your body as you can especially being brave enough to have the weight loss surgery.At 65, If I can get afree boob job and a Tummy Tuck then sign me up! Anyway I wish you happiness and success and GO For it!!

Shoot I'm almost 56 and surgery date of January 12th, and if need be I will for sure consider it. Nothing wrong with wanting to feel good about yourself and have the confidence that we have always wanted.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
