#130 Don’t go overboard with plastic surgery. The results are never pretty.

13 Jun

We often see so many images of “perfect” celebrities–perfect hair, perfect clothes, perfect face, and perfect body.  We see them on TV, in magazines, and on the internet.  With these images constantly in the media, it’s no wonder that we tend to look at ourselves as less than perfect.  But one thing that so many young women don’t take into account is that these “perfect” celebrities have hair stylists, wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, trainers, dieticians, and yes, photoshoppers to help them maintain their looks.   Sometimes in a quest to reach this unrealistic standard of beauty that society has created, young women go too far. 

I could just put up a bunch of before and after pictures to illustrate my point.  We’ve all seen those women.  The ones whose faces are pulled so tight that it looks like it hurts to blink.  Or the ones with the breasts the size of a small child’s head.  Or the ones whose lips are so plump that the only way to describe them is by saying that they look exactly how my lips feel after having a root canal. 

Take for example, MTV reality star Heidi Montag, who recently disclosed that she had 10 plastic surgery procedures performed in one day.  What might be even more shocking is that she’s only 23.  The pre-surgeries Heidi was a pretty, young woman who looked real.  The post-surgeries Heidi looks entirely fake–from the 32 OMG! breasts to her fat injected lips.  WHY DID SHE DO THAT? 

I’m not here to say that plastic surgery is a bad thing.  I personally don’t think there is anything wrong with getting a lift here and a tuck there, but the problem comes when people don’t know when enough is enough and when doctors don’t tell their patients no.  Love who you are and never think that you don’t look good enough.  Someone loves you just the way you are.
