Plastic Surgery -Roger Mason
Plastic surgery has more to do with psychology than surgical procedures. The real question when considering such a serious issue is why are you doing it, and what results do you expect? Why are you going to do this? Any good surgeon questions his prospective patient before accepting them. You should find a doctor with an imaging computer, who can photograph you and show you exactly what he can and cannot do. You will see the probable results on the screen before you pay your money. This is very important so you’ll know basically what to expect, and what not to expect. Working with human tissue does not produce exact results.
Don’t take this lightly. There is risk here, especially of infection. 1 in 50,000 people die during plastic surgery procedures. You will be under light or heavy anesthesia depending on what you are doing. The temporary pain and discomfort are well controlled by medication (read Pain Medication article). You must choose the best facial surgeon you can find. You also must be able to afford very high fees for good work. The most common procedures are face lifts, eyes, lip augmentation, nose jobs, chin implants, cheek implants, lipsuction, gynecomastia (men), breast implants, breast reductions, and breast lifts. Women can actually get their labia done! Do NOT get breast implants, lip augmentation, or liposuction. These three are to be avoided at all costs. Breast implants do not work, and have never worked. Countless women have permanently deformed breasts that cannot be repaired. You can lose body fat with diet and exercise. Who wants “trout pout” and puffy lips?
Most everyone in the entertainment industry has had surgical enhancement of some kind or an-other. However, plastic surgery has been given a bad name by the Hollywood crowd. These people are universally terminal neurotics, cross addicted to drugs, shallow, self centered, vain, narcissistic, and very unhealthy. They get surgical procedures for all the wrong reasons. If you are considering plastic surgery, then EARN it. Do your best to be healthy by eating right, exercising vigorously, taking proven supplements, balancing your basic hormones, fasting every week, avoiding prescription and recreational drugs, and keeping a lid on any bad habits like coffee and alcohol. Once you have done your best to be healthy, strong, and youthful, then you can be a good candidate. You will “deserve” the rewards. What do you want to change about your-self? How do you feel this is really going to affect your life if you get it done? Most people just want to look younger. This is certainly understandable. Your author had his eyes done, and was very happy with the results. Most people are very happy with realistic procedures.
Let’s look at a few examples. Joan Rivers looks like an alien from Mars. Priscilla Presley looked 20 years younger than her 62 years, but now looks like The Joker in the Batman movie. Roseanne Barr at 54 had excellent work done, and looks much younger now. Cindy Crawford had excellent work done, and looks natural. Judge Judy looks great at 67. The Governator Schwarznegger had good work, but lies about having it done. Halle Barry, Janet Jackson, and Michael Jackson had their skin lightened. Sylvester Stallone and Mickey Rourke look like cartoon characters. Jaclyn Smith looks great at 66, but is continuing with more procedures, and will soon look like a caricature. If you have the right motivation, the money, and are willing to take the risks, then go ahead and get a consultation with photo computer imaging. All the women your author has known who got their noses improved, every single one of them is happier for doing it. Be realistic. Don’t think surgery is going to compensate for any lack in your life. Even doing the right thing for the wrong reason never turns out.
Heidi Montag was simply not good looking with a big honker nose like that. She is almost unrecognizable after a good rhinoplasty procedure. She looks like two different women. This is a good example of what can be done with normal procedures.
Few people know that Sharon Stone is anything but a natural beauty. "Average" is about the best you could say for her before surgery. She got a complete facial makeover and one of the best face procedures ever done on an actress. Her own mother would not recognize her. Do not expect such incredible results as this though. The surgeon should get an Academy Award for work like this. On the right is a recent photo of Sharon with no makeup at all to show what how stunning she is at 53. Yes, she has regular procedures done. She should stop now while she’s ahead.
Avil Lavinge is a popular singer, and knew that pretty women are more popular as performers.
Look at the dramatic difference after rhinoplasty. Hard to recognize her.
Stevie Nicks is another artist who realized pretty women are more successful in the music business than plain Janes. Look at her high school photo. Her results are very similar to Avril's. After 50 Stevie got a complete fact lift as well, and looks much younger than her 63 years (2011 photo). You don’t have to be an entertainer, sports figure, or politician. You do have to have money however. Consultations are cheap, or sometimes even free. If you feel you would honestly be happier after a surgical procedure then explore the possibility.
Meg Ryan was never a looker and was aging badly. She got a complete face lift and makeover in 2011 and you cannot even tell this is still Meg Ryan!
These photos speak for themselves. Here is Cher, the Queen of Plastic Surgery, without makeup at 65. The hundreds of thousands of dollars she has spent over the decades still leave her as homely as ever. Maybe even worse.
