A friend of mine recently had plastic surgery. We've been friends since we were freshman in high school and have suffered through each other's insecurities. Her job is dealing with the public. Maybe this is why she feels she has to look as good as she can. Before the surgery, I thought she looked beautiful. I always saw her as a kind and thoughtful friend.
I told her that I don't look too closely at a person's physical appearance. She says she does and she thinks others do too. Well, at 58, skin starts to sag. It depends on genetics and of course how well you've taken care of yourself. The first thing I notice about a person is usually their attitude. What you think about yourself and the world is what shows on your face. Cheerful thought is the fountain of youth and makes the face glow.
My friend went through plastic surgery. She had the good old face lift, her eyes de-fatted and something added to her chin. I believe they also lifted her neck. When we talked she told me that it was extremely painful. She had also fallen and broken a suture. She was miserable and her new husband of six months had left her.
Do you think it's worth it to go through plastic surgery for vanity? Thank you. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Salud.
