DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: My Husband Wants Liposuction

DEARSUGAR and Wavering Wife need your help. On one hand, you want to be supportive of your husband, but at the same time, you just can't bear to spend this kind of money on cosmetic surgery.

Also, there are major risks involved with any surgery such as anesthesia and unsatisfactory results. Just ask Tara Reid, right? What would you do if this was your husband?

Dear Sugar,
My husband wants liposuction on his stomach. Part of me totally understands where he is coming from. He works out all of the time and this is his "trouble spot." No matter what he does, he just can't seem to get that area in shape. It's just bulky, puffy and not toned like the other areas of his body are.

I don't want him to think that I think plastic surgery is a double standard. I understand that it's not only something women do to improve their looks, however, the surgery is close to $4,000 and we really don't have the money for it right now.

I want to be supportive of his insecurities and nurture his self esteem, but I have to admit, I think this is kind of a ridiculous request. Wavering Wife
