For most of my life, I wasn’t a big fan of cosmetic surgery. I thought it was for shallow stripper, ostentatiously wealthy women and for has-been celebrities. But as I’ve aged, I can see the appeal, and there are a few procedures I’m starting to covet. I’m not a stripper, or a socialite, and I’m certainly not a celeb, but I have to admit there are a few cosmetic surgeries I’d love to have…
1. Facial Skin Resurfacing

I have great-looking skin… for a lady my age. But I could certainly do with a quick laser microdermabrasion just to even a few things out, and to give my skin a little boost. It’s not expensive, and can even be done by most dermatologists, so there’s no need to search for a cosmetic surgeon. Hmm…
2. Laser Tattoo Removal
Actually, I’m already having laser tattoo removal done, but I wish the process was a little faster! I’ve had three treatments, and the fading is significant, but it’s already been almost 6 months, with at least another 2 treatments to go! I suppose that’s what I get for rushing into a tattoo in the first place…
3. Thigh and Butt Tightening
No matter how many lunges or squats I do, no matter how much weight I lose, gravity has taken its toll over the years, and my butt and thighs will never be as tight as they once were. A seaweed wrap or cosmetic “tightening” is the solution! I want to have this done…
4. Eyeliner Tattoo

Every morning, I spend precious sleep time lining my eyes, and half-way through the day, it’s all smudged and I have to do it again. My friend Masami has the permanent solution — ten years ago, she had a thin line of eyeliner tattooed on her upper eyelids. She never has to apply eyeliner again, and this is something I might consider, too!
5. Laser Hair Removal
Oh, this would be my first choice for sure. I love the idea of never shaving again, and having smooth, silky skin. How nice would that be? Think of all the time you’d save in the morning, and how nice it would be never to get a bikini wax again!
6. Laser Stretch Mark Removal
I have only a few stretch marks, barely visible, on my hips. They’re hardly noticeable, but again, during swimsuit season, they really bother me. I’ve tried creams and oils, and nothing works… maybe I’ll consider laser treatments to remove them… there are only a couple, so why not? It won’t be expensive.
7. Breast Augmentation

I’ve barely been an A cup most of my life, and I would love, just once, to buy a swimsuit without having to worry about how I’m going to fill the top. When I was pregnant and nursing, I got used to having a B cup, and now I miss my cleavage! Maybe I’ll consider breast augmentation. I’m just not sure it’s that important to me… at least, until summer comes and it’s time to try on swimsuits again…
Maybe I can’t afford or justify some of these cosmetic surgeries, at least not now, but there are a few that I’ve already started, or I’m looking into. I can’t wait til my laser tattoo removal is done, and then from there, I’m going to start the laser hair removal… or maybe the laser microdermabrasion… are you secretly wanting cosmetic surgery? Which of these procedures is on your wish list? Please let me know!
