Good guys don’t do bad things, and bad guys don’t do good things. You don’t really see any shades of grey at all until you’re a lot older. And I’m not talking about the Fifty Shades variety. That you don’t see until you’re much older!
Specifically I recall being very against plastic surgery of any kind. “You should be happy with what God gave you and not change a thing,” I thought. My rigid brain didn’t have any flexibility in there and I even looked down a bit on people that had work done.
It all just seemed so “fake” to me. And not just all those basketball-shaped boobs.
But as I’ve gotten older, my feelings have most definitely changed. At this point in my life, I can definitely understand why people would get nose jobs, tummy tucks, or breast implants. It’s a self-esteem issue and one that can really change a person’s life. I mean, how different is getting a new nose from having a mole removed from your cheek? Yes, it’s a bigger deal, but you’re still altering your appearance because you’re unhappy.
So I say do what you want. Do what makes you happy. Just be sure you’re doing things for the right reason. Don’t go getting a new set of boobs just to please your husband or because you think it’ll impress some guy. Get them because you want them. Because they’ll make you feel more complete or more empowered or more self-confident.
I know I’m a guy so I’m not about to go get myself a new pair, but I know a lot of women read my blog and I’ve read plenty of blogs written by moms (Note: I didn’t call them Mommy Blogs!) who talk about getting tummy tucks and breast implants or lifts. Some have even had it done and discussed the whole process.
Childbirth and breastfeeding can really do a number on your body too. There’s a reason lots of moms use the phrase “banana boobs.” I see absolutely nothing wrong with them getting the surgery they want to get their own bodies back. To feel good about themselves once more. It’s tough enough being a mom and taking care of kids without weighing yourself down with loads of low self-esteem.
If you’re interested in having plastic surgery yourself, there are plenty of options available. If you’re willing to travel, or you live in the Denver, Colorado area, consider contacting BEAUTY by BUFORD for any work you’d like done on your face, breasts, or body.
Whatever you decide to do is the right answer. You’re going to be hanging around in your own skin for your entire life. You should at least be comfortable.
Would you ever get plastic surgery for yourself?
