I personally find the thought of any plastic surgery, or the invasion of my body by poison spurting needles, absolutely abhorrent. I am fortunate to have an average body with a reasonable face, but even at the age of 46 with things beginning to droop, I am in no way tempted to alter the way I look.
These young actresses though were apparently queueing up to have their faces filled, plumped and frozen.Nearly all the girls ( and interestingly they were all girls ) were pretty gorgeous before any procedure.After, at least from the photos printed, they looked ghastly.All of them were sporting the classic 'stuck in a wind tunnel' look.All expression or sign of movement in their features had been annihilated.
Why??? Why on earth do these girls feel the need to conform to a certain look?They must be so lacking in any self confidence.Their advisors must be so short sighted to tell them that pneumatic lips, huge boobs and shiny frozen foreheads are the way to go...
This does not even start to address the health risks... The whole idea of manipulating our bodies, filling them with substances with no idea of future side effects, undergoing massive surgeries, just in order to 'look younger' is, to me, obscene.What is this obsession with the rejection of ageing?What is wrong with getting old?It happens to us all no matter how much surgery we have.
And the awful thing is that these people don't actually look younger, do they? They just look ' procedurised'.I bet any one of us could spot someone who has had 'work' done at 100 paces. We don't look at them and think 'Gosh! She looks young and gorgeous...' We think 'Bloody hell.... she's had stuff done' At worst we snigger that someone has been so desperate to look gorgeous that they have in fact ruined their looks. At best we sigh sadly that someone has felt so insecure....
Maybe its a sign of the times... that we are so dissatisfied with our lots.... that we are so obsessed with materialism, with the cosmetic. I know that this doesn't apply to all of us. Perhaps, in fact, it is the minority of people - who knows? But the fact that people anywhere are prepared to subject themselves to such radical treatment seems bizarre to me.It also seems very sad that women who would appear to have so much are, in fact, so insecure, so lacking in confidence.
I have no desire to have anything done. I would rather eat healthily, exercise and just get on with making the best of my life than spend my hard earned cash on something that makes me sore, ill,uglier than I was to start with... You would hope that plastic surgeons would turn women away rather than profit from their insecurities. Or is that too much to hope? Maybe peoples' desire to make money overshadows their need to do the right thing.
What do you think?
