I was recently asked how I felt about a face lift. Would I ever consider getting one? How about a tummy tuck? Nose job, etc.?
I've thought about those things over the years. I've known people who have undergone all of those procedures. I remember one friend who had her nose done and people commented afterward saying they didn't see anything wrong with the old one. Well, it wasn't in the middle of your face, was it?
Self image is a crucial part of life. Everyone wants to feel good about themselves - inside and out. Sure, there are plenty o' people who are fine with the large nose, etc. Barbra Streisand is a perfect example.
I think, at this point in my life, the only cosmetic surgery I would consider is blepharoplasty. Hope I spelled that correctly; my spell check was clueless. It's an eyelid tuck. If I got to a time when I had to tilt my head back to see, I'd go under the knife.
Reconstructive surgery is a whole different ball game. Friends and relatives have struggled with the decision after mastectomy. Some do and some don't. It's a very personal and private decision.
There are a lot of examples of bad or way too much plastic surgery. Joan Rivers could easily be the poster child for that cause. Kenny Rogers running a close second.
So, how do I feel about cosmetic surgery? Give it a lot of thought. Do your research. Interview surgeons. Talk to people who have gone through the procedure you are considering.
And then do whatever the hell you please!
