I think she has a killer body and a still very pretty face. @SilleeMee, she's referring to Susan Lucci.

 

I certainly don't think she looks "emancipated." Funny typo, though. :-)

Re: My appointment today with a plastic surgeon....

Good for you!  You don't need to justify the cost.  I'm going to have a tummy tuck because I have recti diastasis (I never heard of it either) but have to lose 8 more lb.  Already lost about 10 -11 lbs since March and wear a size 6 pant.  Was told to need to lose some abdominal fact in order to fix my muscles.  I'm 69 and look at least 6 months pregnant.  I can't stand the look or feel of my abdomen.  Insurance will not pay because they say it's cosmetic surgery.  A tummy tuck is the only way to fix it -- the surgeon will also take care of my small hernia.  It's a lot of money, but I've had this problem for several years.   Just one less trip to Europe for my husband and I.

@SilleeMee   Oh I corrected my post.....I was talking about Susan Lucci. I think she is pretty, but just too thin.

@suzyQ3   Yes I had a chuckle with that! I corrected my post.  Smiley Happy. Yes, she is pretty.

Re: My appointment today with a plastic surgeon....

I get botox every 5 or 6 months in the # 11 area.  I have few lines and wrinkles, but I don't want that 11 line.  

I have seen too many women with a ridiculous amount of lip injections.  God blessed me with great lips--THANK YOU, lol.

 

I've heard lip injections HURT though.

I have read about Voluma in the cheeks and may do that in the next year.

Re: My appointment today with a plastic surgeon....

@Sawn  I, too wish you the best! I'm thinking about talking to my derm about a referral for the area between my brows. I don't have an "11", bit I have a big ole "1" up there. Please let us know how things go for you!

I agree. I hope that the OP gets amazing results.

 

One thing, though, that surprises me on this forum is that I have seen some negative posts about women who wear makeup. Yet, plastic surgery seems to be accepted. Just something I have noticed here and not sure why...
