Have you changed your mind about botox and boob jobs as the years have gone on?

There’s something rather intriguing about how a lot of women will trawl through magazines with the sharpest of radars on the hunt for the celebrity Botox brigade.

Who’s dabbling, who’s not, whom we admire for letting nature take its course, and the big game prize catch of who’s going from beautiful to weird monster.

My stance on meddling with ones face is this, if you know a good cosmetic surgeon that can do very subtle improvements without slicing your face up like a piece of ham at Christmas, then what’s the issue?

If it becomes as regular an event as getting your hair and nails done, then there may be a problem because apart from the fact that maybe you’ll never really be happy, you’re pumping yourself full of poison and that cannot be good.

With the New Year just beginning and people all over the world focusing on creating the new improved versions of themselves by losing weight, quitting the fags or whatever it is you think is going to make yourself happier and healthier, I wonder who might be considering having the first jab of the year?

I was discussing with a bunch of ladies just recently the whole issue of who has, who hasn’t, and whether the concept of injecting oneself for beauty was the way anyone should go, and I couldn’t help but think there was this underlying issue not being mentioned that was more about wanting the ‘good celebrities gone Botox bad’ would just go away so we might know the wrinkle fix-it option was there but not at the risk of becoming freak show instead.

Is it really about wanting to make a graceful, natural stance by saying ‘NO, my face is going to be given permission to do exactly what Mother Nature intends for it to do and I will learn to love it accordingly?’

Or a lot of the time is it just a fear that if we have a sneaky go around the eyes and lips that we’ll suddenly look like Jocelyn Wildenstein and be marched into the town square medieval style while the rest of the non-Botox female community pelt us with jars of Lancôme des Yeux while screaming ‘you deserve those bloody lop sided inflated lips for being such a sell out to the rest of us.’

Not to use this next story as a benchmark for knowing you’ve gone too far, but when your husband decides to sue you and wins because you’ve apparently had so much work done on yourself that you no longer look anything like what God intended you to look, then things aren’t looking good.  Although you’ve spent a fortune hoping they would.

Feng, from northern China went to court and filed a suit against his beautiful young wife saying, “I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues, our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me.”

Apparently his genes were fine according to him and the ‘ugly baby’ result was hers.  Upon investigation he found out that his wife had done a fair bit of facial tweaking, therefore a judge, who must have been drinking on the day, ordered the wife to pay her husband $120,000 for false advertising.  About half of what they’ll need to pay in counseling for the child once he hears this cute little story.

Anyway, the point is, no one should influence our decisions about anything if it’s just about pleasing the masses.  My friend said to me later in regards to the cosmetic surgery and jabbing debate,  ‘do you think having your boobs done falls into the superficial category?’ After a having a football team of kids that was her insecurity thing, I said ‘no if it makes you feel better and it’s done just to please only you, then why the hell not?

If you’re not considering it because of the persecution from a collective group of unknown women, then maybe that’s something you need to get over.

  1. Amber, Happy New Year, We hope you have a ripper.
    The boys and i were discussing you in the pub and as you should feel
    we think you are a star. Incredibly honest,intelligent and a beautiful
    person. The conversation centred around “taking the easy options in
    life”. We think you have a strength of character and appear to have
    accepted and achieved many challengers in your life. Your recent
    articles however, have had a leaning towards taking easy options. 1. I
    want to be a mother. -Look for a donor (all the boys put their hand up
    by the way) rather than getting serious about making yourself suitably
    avalable for a long term relationship. Don’t think it is too hard,
    many men would give their right arm to have you on the left. 2. Woman
    taking the easy option of Botox. Men hate Botox. A
    vibrant,energetic,well read, positive woman who looks after her body
    naturally wins hands down. (by a country mile in fact) This option
    takes a lot more effort but the journey and the long term rewards are
    even better than stock piling gold bullion.
    We (the boys) think that this year will be a year that people with a
    strong positive mental attitude will shine like never before. Our
    state and our people will be looking for strong leadership and we (the
    boys) think you have the ability and the forum to inspire a lot of
    people. Enough, (please accept the content of this note in the same
    spirit as it is intended.) Enjoy the year ahead. Cheers from the
    boys.

  2. Dale Dorning Women wear make up to conceal, brighten…and define..Colour hair to ‘soften’ and enhance…. Braces and / or whitening of teeth… Agree, going under the knife is extreme and often un necessary. Personal choice, do your research. I ask all the women in my make up chair, “what are your best 3 facial features?’. Focus on what we like firstly. Done well, botox and fillers are near fool proof. Never suggesting everyone goes all ‘THE SWAN’ on us. The biggest issue is people telling everyone once they have ‘done something’.

  3. DALE – I agree, as if we’re not already ‘tricking’ ourselves up as it is. Knives are too intense to me but I’m now ok with the idea of the occasional bit of botox IF that’s what you feel you want to do. By the way I saw the SWAN, it was sort of sad BUT those girls felt good after it I guess……or did they? I’d like to see the follow up.

  4. Barbara Wedd – im looking into Botox. After cancer many years ago i would love to look my age, not 20yrs older.

  5. Barbara – Amber Petty Good on you Barbara. You shouldn’t feel constantly reminded of your misfortune. Perfect example of why we shouldn’t all be so quick to judge. I understand reactions to those that clearly go to far but as I’ve mentioned, I’ve softened on the concept if it means a little freshening up to make you feel fabulous. Not saying you have to but if that’s what it takes, then so be it.

  6. Kerynn Francis I tried botox a couple of years ago and loved the result, not unnatural and it made my eyes look brighter as it lifts the brow slightly – I’ll do it again.

  7. Natasha Pine My thoughts are if you do your home work and find a fabulous specialist who believes in making things look as natural as possible the go for it.. The results can be amazing.. Ageing gracefully relies on diet, exercise and a little help ; )

  8. Lotus Laine My boyfriend says I’m gorgeous just the way I am and therefore don’t need things like Botox…. And I reply ‘But you’ve never seen me without it, so how would you know??’

  9. Lourayne Mahood For most people the best and safest Botox comes on a plate. Salmon.Very dark chocolate. Broccoli. Blueberries. And many more anti oxidant rich foods. Plus- rest. And a great attitude.
    However, there are times when we need a little more- Barbara- I wish you well!

  10. Barbara Wedd it is hard when your 37 single and get told you look late 40’s. Altho our face is just a mask, i would still rather have mine reflect my insides. In moderation i think Botox is a great confidence builder.

  11. I would love to try getting my boobs done. I am not very well gifted. It gives me insecurities and i think getting it done will boost up my confidence. However, i am still hesitant because i am afraid of the procedure.

  12. Very nice article and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you guys have any ideea where to employ some professional writers? Thank you 🙂

    • yes you’re right. I think women are very hesitant to go on record to say they do or don’t like them or want them. I think there’s very much a stereotype image that comes into your head when you think fake breasts (as opposed to ‘tits’…that’s a very blokey word) – so I think that stereotype is not a look that many women necessarily want to align themselves with. Which of course is not necessarily what all boob jobs look like.

  13. Mm yes, interesting yet so complex. Agree with you thou, if i had a woman i can’t imagine i’d like anyone cutting into her either. However, yes, my mind about botox and boob jobs has changed as iv’e matured, kind of like a vice versa thing, like the pro verse con swapping sides. Realising now this obviously must be quite normal right, or else why did you ask? So yeah thank you for a pleasant read and for helping me to realize something that i had absolutely no idea would ever occur to me, yet may at anytime could possibly be extremely useful, otherwise yeah, good to know anyway!
