How Do YOU Feel About Plastic Surgery?

“I remember how I once swore I’d NEVER have plastic surgery. Then, the jowls popped out, the eyelids drooped, and the neck started looking like crepe paper at a kid’s birthday party. I’ve fixed the first two, and would love to do the third when I get the money, and nerve,” said a FOF woman.

WHAT SAY YOU?

I am all for it, if it’s done in a tasteful way. I have had my eyelids lifted because they were heavy on my eyes and making me look tired all the time. Now, my eyes are open and i look refreshed, not transformed.”

I am all for it, just not for me, lol. The ones I know who have had it still aren’t happy. One procedure just leads to another. I say to each her own.”

jowlEver since Hannah noticed the first sign of jowls on her face, she’s been thinking of having plastic surgery to get rid of them. She’s vowed for years that she would “grow old gracefully,” and never let a scalpel get near her, but she really hates those jowls and wants to see them go. They’re definitely not “graceful.”

It’s Time to Squash The Stigma of Plastic Surgery

The stigma of plastic surgery is no longer
an issue for most women; if anything, a well-done
nip/tuck is something to be proud of, and shared
with girlfriends.

It’s also no secret that advances in medicine mean that cosmetic procedures are safer, more efficient, and more effective than ever. Despite these facts, however, five reasons stop many fab women over 50 from moving ahead and booking appointments for aesthetic procedures they’d love to have.

As one of Houston’s busiest cosmetic surgeons, I have some good news: These challenges shouldn’t be enough to keep you away from having your dream cosmetic treatment.

Challenge # 1: MONEY

No matter who you are, the cost of plastic surgery will always be a concern. Even though health insurance rarely covers these elective procedures, cosmetic treatments are becoming increasingly affordable on any budget. The most respected cosmetic surgeons also offer several financing options. This can help to get your desired procedure today—when you really want it—without saving for months or draining your bank account.

The Truth About Your Tummy Tuck and Weight Loss

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding tummy tucks, starting with the popular belief that a tummy tuck is the perfect way to lose weight. If you’re overweight and have decided to slim down once and for all, you may be surprised to learn that a tummy tuck is not a “quick fix” that will eliminate extra pounds as a shortcut to your dream body. Although it is possible to lose weight by having some surgeries, a tummy tuck is not one of them. However, once a person has reached a healthy weight, a tummy tuck can be an ideal way to fine-tune the figure and enhance weight loss success.
