These last few months... I've done a lot of thinking about brachioplasties and lower body lifts. I have no idea whether or not I will need them, but I have a sneaky suspicion I might. My stomach already looks like it is 'frowning' or 'deflated'. I guess that is exactly what it is, deflated. All the fat that used to be in there is gone (well not all, but a lot), so I look like a balloon that has lost it's air.
In general, I've never believed in plastic surgery. I always thought it reinforces society's ridiculous standards of beauty (young, thin, white, etc.). Why have a face lift to hide your age, because it also hides the ability to show emotions the way you normally would? Why have a nose job to change your nose when your children (if you have them) have a 50/50 chance of sharing the nose you were born with? Why have breast implants when it will reduce your sensation?
So does it make me a hypocrite to think it is okay to have plastic surgery in cases of breast cancer or weight loss? I didn't think so. Until I read this article .... Reading that, a part of me is inspired by her confidence, but another part is terrified because I know I wouldn't feel the same.
