This week we scratched the surface of plastic and cosmetic surgery. Candice let us know it was her time in retail that influenced her, Botched proved that doing your homework is key and I, well I’m only for it if you were born looking like Disney’s Quasimodo. With all that said, let’s look at the most popular procedures according to the almighty “you probably have cancer” site, WebMD. (more…)
There are a lot of people who walk away from their plastic surgery procedures without much pain or scarring. Candice didn’t have too much trouble with hers and she’s lucky for that because for those who decide to go the cheap route or just get the short end of the stick with theirs – it’s not so great dealing with. On top of health problems that could lead to death, we’ve seen a number of oddities come through Botched on E! From one breast winding up bigger than the other to horrendous scarring to well, most recently a man who went in to get his breast implants taken out…implants he got as part of a bet almost two decades ago. See, that’s a case of too much money and not enough sense.
…not many do it, and it’s fake when they do. This has been a sentiment of mine since I was in high school, or perhaps it was college. I can’t remember if it was something scribbled on my wall as a teen or on my MySpace come early adulthood. Nevertheless, the idea of looking a certain way has always been a concern. I’m human of course. To find someone 100% okay with the way they look would be harder to find than a unicorn. While I struggled with my own look for years, be it wishing for less pigment, wanting the scale to play a lighter tune or cursing my curly hair – I never once thought plastic surgery was something that’d change how I felt about my outward appearance. Maybe the fat sacks I swear mock the upper part of my arms, but in reality – nah, plastic surgery, in my opinion, should be reserved for those who are by all means…disfigured past “normal.”
As a woman who grew up working retail, Candice Green has always been around the female form. Later she notes how that had an affect on her decision to get some work down upstairs in the breast department seven years ago. Knowing very few people who’ve gone in for any sort of surgery like this, I knew she was the one I could turn to about the topic. So below is what someone who’s had work done and doesn’t think it’s a problem had to say about plastic surgery, the mental aspect of it and more.
The idea of looking like Steve Guttenberg didn’t spawn from his stunning performance in the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen classic, It Takes Two – but rather a joke Patton Oswalt told about people getting plastic surgery to look like celebrities, and that what if this has been the thing in the 80’s? We’d have a world full of men rocking a Guttenberg face. Of course those aren’t the only types of procedures people go under the knife for – oh no. People have managed to find a way to tuck, pull, boost and shave almost every part of their body. Calf implants? Let us never forget that guy on True Life: I’m Wasting Money on Calf Implants, or whatever it was titled.
