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.
