Plastic Surgery

Today I was at the hairdresser and I picked up a copy of the latest People. The cover story was about Heidi Montag, 23-year-old star of The Hills and her plastic surgery obsession. She had 10 surgeries in one day recently and admits to planning even more as she gets older. Her parents weren’t told because they were not very happy about her first round so she didn’t tell them until she was done recovering. She describes a harrowing ordeal in which she almost stopped breathing due to pain medication. She attributes her obsession to her quest to become a pop star the lies of Brittany Spears! I think it’s a tragedy such a pretty young woman feels this way about herself. She has a handsome young husband who also has some serious concerns but feels powerless to do anything. I know how superficial people can be in Los Angeles, but who is advising this girl? Why doesn’t the plastic surgeon suggest therapy to work through her need to be perfect in order to feel like a woman? She plans to enlarge her breasts even more than the DD she already has implanted, and she’s a tiny girl! She hasn’t even had children yet! I am pretty worked up over this, I guess because she’s the same age as my daughter and I wonder why she’s so insecure.

Do you have a story you’d like to share about an experience with plastic surgery? No judgement, I’m just curious what people think. In the interest of full disclosure, I should let you all know I had a nose job when I was 26. I waited for years to do it, I paid for it myself, and my nose is much more attractive and I can breathe better. I’m proud of the way it looks, but I have done nothing else since and I am now 51. No plans for anything else except healthy living!

Tell me your plastic surgery stories. This is your big shot at Your 10 Minutes!

  1. It seems Nip/Tuck copies real life where the plastic surgeons just keep cutting, never considering that psychologically help is more in order.
