Plastic surgery.

Friday, February 19, 2010

It doesn't always have to be scary. And in the end, everyone doesn't have to come out looking like this.


After 10 procedures in one day, Heidi Montag can hardly pass off as a real girl. And...she wants to go back for more. Word on the street {yes, I just said word on the street} is that Lisa Rinna made some comments about Heidi's surgery. Ummm...really? Lisa is in her mid 40s but all that work {in my humble opinion} makes her look over 50. Agreed?

What kind of a message are these women giving to young girls across the US? To women who are growing older and feeling insecure? Fortunately, no one cares about either of them very much. But here I am writing about it. So there you go.

I'm not sure what the deal is with people defacing their faces, but it makes me sad. Meg Ryan {one of my favorites} went a little too far. I'm sure you have all seen Nicole Kidman. And then there's everyone's fave, Joan Rivers. Why can't everyone be classy and fabulous like Meryl Streep? I think she looks amazing. I do think she could have had some minor work done but even if she has, you really can't tell. I love her.


Again -- I think a mini lift or a minor something here and there isn't such a bad thing {when done correctly}. There is a huge difference between "you look fabulous. did you go on vacation?" and "you look fabulous. what's your doctor's number." I just don't understand what happened to aging gracefully. Women today are doing everything they can not to age at all. It's weird, and I don't like it.

Would I ever have a mini lift if I felt I needed one? I think I'd consider it. I'm only 27, so it's not really on my mind. But I would not rule out doing something minor in a very, very, very long time. I'd do my research and make sure that no one could tell that I did anything. I would want to look rejuvenated and refreshed. Not nipped and tucked.

Tell me, would you ever have anything done to look younger? Botox? Face lift? What would/wouldn't you do?

I think that's enough rambling about plastic surgery. You're about to think I'm crazy, but the reason I was inspired to write this post is that I just had some work done myself. And it wasn't minor.

No, I didn't do anything to my face. I gave my blog a full on face lift. I'm talking a Heidi Montag you can't recognize me anymore face lift. I think it's classy and fabulous. It definitely looks like it had a little work done. If your blog needs any help, you can go here to get your own blog lift. I guess that would make me the surgeon. Fancy.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I would have work done on my stomach when I am done having kids.. after c-sections, and a double hernia, exercise can only do so much.. there will also be those sideways pooches a bit.. someday I wouldn't mind having that taken care of.

  4. Great post. I think there is something to growing old gracefully. However, I don't think there is anything wrong with a few minor touch ups along the way. Doing to yourself what Lisa and Heidi did is just crazy!

  5. First of all - I absolutely LOVE the look of the blog - oh my goodness...it is so "me"! LOL

    and, in regard to the plastic surgery/"adjustments" - I don't know if I could ever have anything done... not that I'm against super minor "tweaks" - I am just so darn frightened by needles! (seriously. I have a major problem with needles LOL).
    But, I'm only 18 - so, yeah. By the time I've hit the age where I might be lookin' a bit rundown, let's hope I can just pop a pill or something! needles = no go.

  7. Oooh, LOVE the new look. I think it's my favorite one you've done so far!

    I'm not against plastic surgery, as long as it's just minor "Did you take a vaca!?" tweaks and/or adjustments.

    The frozen face look doesn't much flatter anyone.

  8. Great post...isn't Meryl the best?
    Did you see the interview when Heidi was asked what message she was trying to give young girls? She replied, "Beauty comes from within"....I thought I would fall out laughing.......Did she really say that??

  10. Loving the new look!

    I think Helen Mirren is GORGEOUS and she looks her age. I am 35 and the fine lines and such are popping up. I have thought about botox...and maybe one day, but I kind of like my little lines, they are me...I thought I would HATE my stretch marks after having Aidan, but eeehhh...not so bad really. I am not 20 anymore! I am who I am and I am terrified I would end up looking like one of these girls. Nicole Kidaman scares the hell out of me. Her face doesn't move. Heidi..she is just sad and was so cute before all of this...It is hard though when you look in the mirror and see things changing...my grandma who is 85 says she feels the same as she did when she was 30, but when she looks in the mirror she doesn't know who's boobs those are. :)

  11. Your blog design is so pretty and classic. I may have you re-design my 'Classy & Fabulous' blog in a few months, that's the name. I noticed you had used those words a couple times. I hope once it gets a facelift, I can post larger photos and it will live up to its name. LOL.

    I totally agree about the celebs and plastic surgery. I was so shocked and saddened that such a young girl like Heidi would put herself through that for her upcoming pop star fame she's seeking. She almost died during the procedure I had heard, that is definitely going too far!

    I love Meryl and that she is so comfortable in her own skin-that is TRUE beauty. :)
