25 Things I’ve Learned About Plastic Surgery – #4 – There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look good
“Looking good” is a matter of opinion. What looks good to one person may not look good on someone else. What looks good to someone may not look good to someone else. Different strokes for different folks. That’s what makes the world go ’round. Diversity. Is Plastic surgery a guilty pleasure? It shouldn’t be. There’s nothing wrong wanting to look good. Many people don’t care how they look – and that’s ok. But for most of us, appearance means something. The way you dress, comb your hair, speak and walk all say something about you. We modify these behaviors in order to portray a certain image, either consciously or subconsciously. For those who do it consciously modifying your actual physical appearance has become easier and more predictable than ever. Reversing signs of aging, pregnancy, deformities and more is a reality more accessible than ever.
I propose that we all stop kidding ourselves and stand tall. Be proud of the way you look even if it means you get some help along the way. Forget the nay-sayers. Life is too short. For many of us “to look good is to feel good”. For those who disagree and insist on being judgmental – live and let live.
