There are a few things I would get done as long as I didn't look like one of the Housewives of Orange County. However, I don't consider it the "easy" way. I think the most fat they can suck out is 10 lbs and it takes at least 13 weeks to heal. From what I've heard, it's all pretty painful.

No. Surgery teaches you nothing, and it doesn't fix the problems that caused the weight gain in the first place. As countless bariatric and plastic surgeries have proven, people can gain the weight back.
I'd rather do it RIGHT, and keep it off. Going under the knife isn't something to be proud of; working it off the hard way? Is.

No. Something about the idea of sucking fat out here and adding it there and lifting this and tucking that grosses me out. It's too dr frankenstein for me.

I wouldn't get surgery down to not be overweight ie. gastric bypass, lapband, lipo, etc. I would get a tummy tuck or something after I lost the weight as a person has worked hard and you'd like your body to reflect that. That said though you do still have to maintain.

Oh yeah I would! I would get a tummy tuck because even if I lose all the weight, the extra skin flap from being overweight plus 2 abdominal surgeries isn't going anywhere. I would also get a breast lift because gravity will never reverse either.

I'm currently looking into lap-band surgery. I'm on some medications that cause weight gain no matter what I do, and with my chronic pain issues, it's been very hard for me to keep up with my cardio.
I don't really see it as the easy way out, if you've tried the "hard labor" and haven't had great results.
I believe that in this life style change I have learned a lot. And by doing it the easy way you learn nothing except that life is a quick fix and that isn't even true. I didn't put on 60 lbs in a day and it won't take one to get it off.

I always wanted to move my thigh fat up to my boobs, but not seriously. But I've always wondered if it would work.
If I truly could have plastic surgery, with successful results and free of charge, I would get some wrinkles smoothed out and zap some veins. No amount of fitness gets rid of those.

If it was completely free to you, would you take the easy way out and have plastic surgery to fix your weight related flaws? Ie: loose or saggy skin, stretch marks. Or even bypass? Or would you continue doing the manual labor. I know just BC you get plastic surgery doesn't mean you don't have to maintain. I'm not looking for any extensive answers here. Just a debate of would you, wouldn't you and why.
