Yes, some of the images were frightening.
But it got me thinking about plastic surgery and if I would ever do it. I mean, I watch "Nip/Tuck," which is a pretty compelling reason not to, but sometimes, I think I would get a little work done.
No matter how much I work out, the spare tire never goes away, my boobs seem to be in permi-sag, and while spared the "family nose," there is a bump on my bridge that could vanish.
And I have some scars from medical tests and from surgery for a ovarian cyst that I'd like to wipe away. I don't need those scars to remind me of those nightmares. Plus, I fear the wrinkles that will develop on my forehead from the brow furrowing, wait, could I maybe expense that if it's work-induced furrowing?
I guess I think about it too because of a sledding accident that happened when I was a kid. I fell off a sled and slid down a sheet of ice, taking most of the skin off one side of my face. My doctor told me plastic surgery may be necessary, but fortunately, I healed without a scar.
I'm not unhappy with how I look, but sometimes, the temptation to be just a bit better is out there.
But then I see the botched surgeries, like Tara Reid and Daryl Hannah, and suddenly, that spare tire looks good. Plus, as much as I'd like to look better, I know my insecurities will still be there post-surgery, so I need to focus on those first.
I don't judge those who do it, but thanks to Us Weekly and stars making bad decisions (cough, Joan Rivers, cough), the topic peeked my interest.
So, I guess the question for tonight, outside of what everyone is up to this weekend, is, would you ever have plastic surgery? If so, what would you have done? And if you did, do you think you'd be happier afterward?
