25 Things I’ve Learned About Plastic Surgery – #3 There’s Something for Everyone

There’s something for everyone. That’s what makes the world go ’round. If we were all the same it would be a pretty boring place. I think that’s one reason why I have never limited myself to one part of the face or body. I really like the variety. At this point in my life I know what I’m good at and that’s what I limit myself to. Like, I’m not going to put in butt implants, or bleach someone’s whole body (really – people ask for this!). But I love rhinoplasty and turning back the hands of time in someone’s face turns me on. I love breasts (can’t help it) and restoring a woman’s figure after they’ve had their children gives me great satisfaction.

I also think that most people would admit that there is something about their face or body that they wouldn’t mind having improved. Is that really a bad thing? I suppose it’s a little vanity but so what. I don’t see it as any different than caring about your hair, or nails, make-up, or clothes. Critics who slam plastic surgery don’t see and can’t understand the true benefits that patients get. People who are happy with their results are just plain happier, more confident, etc, etc. They often feel as though a heavy weight has been lifted and they no longer are preoccupied with something they feel is distracting.

Notice that I haven’t used the words “normal” or “attractive” or “ugly”, etc. That’s because what is attractive for one person may be unattractive to another. When did we become so judgmental that we can’t allow someone to feel the way they feel? Or want to change something that bothers them? When did it become a bad thing to do something that makes you feel good about yourself?

So remember this Thanksgiving – gives thanks to whoever has helped you in the past, pay it forward and help someone else, and, oh yeah, there’s nothing that you can eat that I can’t suck out, so eat, drink and be merry! Happy Thanksgiving. https://schusterronald.wpengine.com
