Ive had 2 'cosmetic' surgeries though both were to correct medical problems. In both cases, the medical problems were very minor (a sebaceous cyst, a cluster of capillaries that broke the skin; both unrelated) but had developed minor infections and could have gotten much worse.
Uhm, I had a... mole? I guess that's what it's called. Birthmark, whatsoever x) It was in my face and I got it removed because it was getting quite big. It was my mother's idea, but when it was done I was quite happy for it actually, so I don't regret it (: I wouldn't have anything else changed even though there would be a few things before I would look like the "ideal" woman if you know what I mean. I'm quite comfortable as I am (:
Since you're counting laser hair removal, then yes. But it wasn't for something stupid like leg or arm hair, or something you can just shave and not worry about. Lol I wouldn't put myself through that much pain if I wanted to make life easier. It was to get rid of dark facial hair that was growing in and too thick to wax (on my lip, side burns, and under my chin), it was disgusting and more than noticeable if you attack it with a razor, especially on women. xD You can't play off razor burns for acne when you're a chick.
It's kind of embarrassing to talk about and it was embarrassing to have for as long as I did. :/ I'm more than glad I got it removed. It's kind of weird to compare it to plastic surgery or legitimate alterations like breast implants and all.
Why wouldn't that be any worse than mole removal? Not everyone has them removed because they're malignant. A lot of the time it's the same reason as excess hair xD
