bluzgal SAID:

I have gained and lost a lot weight over the years. I had gastric bypass in 1999 starting at 314 and got down to 170 lbs and have maintained that for the most part until the last 2 years since I have been taking breast cancer medicine (ARIMIDEX for 10 yrs). A side effect is weight gain and I sure did. I put on 15 lbs and am now 185 lbs. My question is—is it appropriate to have a full body plastic surgery—I need face lift, neck, breasts, hips, and BIG TIME need leg lift and lipo etc. Big legs, thighs, calves, ankles run in our family on the women. All of my dads 8 sisters had big legs. When I weighed 135 lbs my legs were still big. I am 5 ft 3 and just turned 64. Prob. too old for all of this—but I used to be attractive (told beautiful by many) and I miss feeling attractive. HELP!
