This is definitely something I'm interested in at some point in the future. I'm very unhappy with my saggy-ness and looking at myself naked makes me sad. I still have 35 pounds until my ultimate goal and while I'm okay with not quite reaching it before I consider surgery, I'd like to be much closer to that goal. Also, my husband and I both work for very small companies and neither of them offer insurance (or any benefits, for that matter), so whatever my surgery would cost ultimately comes out of our pocket.
It's funny, but I play the lottery from time to time, hoping that I'll eventually win a large enough prize to pay off our mortgage and enable me to get a lower body lift. As of this post (03/29/12), the MegaMillions lottery is at $540 MILLION and I have 12 sets of numbers in my purse. I'm hoping that at least one of them is some sort of winner. I am by no means greedy. I have no clue what I'd do with $540 million (or whatever the cash option prize is). I don't even know what I'd do with a million dollars. Like I said, a prize large enough to pay off our mortgage, get me my surgery and maybe pay off some other debt would be sufficient enough. LOL
|come on, big money!|
Honestly, though, surgery is something I've been looking into and when I saw what our out of pocket expense would be, I realized I'd never be able to save up for it. It's something I'm very much interested in, but I can also think of other things I could spend $20,000 on. There are also other problem areas that could use some work, so I wonder if it'd be never ending. :/ With three pregnancies, my breasts have taken a beating, not to mention that I lost a lot of weight from that area during this weight loss. Not to mention my jiggly inner thighs and upper arms. See, lots of problem areas, which in turn equals lots of money.
But yes, I want the surgery. Will I get it? Only if we can get an affordable insurance plan or win the lottery. :)
