I was reading the NBC news online when this article popped up about various plastic surgery procedures and I just had to read it! One new fad was quite disturbing to me.
Some people look fine with a little nip or tuck here or there granted! I am not against or for any procedures what I am for is that a person feels good about themselves. Sometimes feeling good about oneself may require a little help on the outside to meet today's so called standardized looks if that is what makes someone happy and feel good about themselves.
I will say these Stars are making a fortune off their well let's just say "freak" bodies that a normal person will never have nor did they without a lot of expensive surgery. The Stars created these looks for a reason. Their own market niche and most likely their own lack of self esteem and needing attention.
I just think we as women may want to remember that these are our only bodies. We can take better care of ourselves through a healthier lifestyle of healthy eating, exercise and loving ourselves. If that still isn't good enough to help us feel better about ourselves well then there is the old fashioned way! Try the latest hairstyles or wigs, new clothes, new or permanent makeup, and hey there are a lot of Spanx stuff out there that will give you a big butt smaller waist, stomach, thighs and bras that we all know will do a lot of false advertising and add several cup sizes! Wow! Look at all the options out there that are not invasive and don't put someone's life at risk! Again, it is just a option.
The one thing in this entire article that really threw me and I found disturbing was that women once having had Brazilian waxes suddenly noticed their lady parts. Worse they felt insecure about them and had plastic surgery to remove some of them to an extent. Yet it made things uncomfortable to put it politely.
Maybe I am old at 52 or maybe I am ahead of the curve I am not sure. I have never had a Brazilian wax. Personally, I have been shaving my underarms, all my leg from ankle to all the lady part areas since I was 10 years old. I can't be the only one who has any idea what the lady parts look like! Everyone has to tinkle right? Can no one at least feel them or see the slightest? I mean come on! Is this the most ridiculous thing ever? Has the women become so square? Prudeish? Uptight? Is it about our bodies, our lady parts only, sex? I just have to ask how is it possible? Why not just leave the lady parts alone why have them surgically altered? In my mind that is beyond crazy! Isn't that called self mutilation or worse?
Read the article see what you think and check out their videos about the butt injections gone bad. I mean ouch!
