One of the most talked-about areas in any beauty magazine is the eyes. The eyes (or the skin and tissue around the eyes) often display the first signs of aging as we grow older. As such, much of plastic surgery literature is devoted to the rejuvenation of this delicate but beautiful part of the face. The eyelids include both the upper and the lower eyelids. Believe it or not, this relatively small area of our bodies has intricate anatomical details that require precise adjustments, often as small as one millimeter!
A common misconception is that since plastic surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, that it is as easy as going to a hair stylist for a new hair-do. The portrayal of an entire plastic surgery journey in thirty-minute programs on cable television has lead to many having a severely skewed view of how much time goes into deciding, researching, and recovering from plastic surgery. Often six to eight weeks of recovery time are skipped over in the blink of an eye, often during a commercial break.
Throughout my posts, I’ve addressed a number of unrealistic expectations that people may have regarding cosmetic surgery. One common one, that can be related to my previous post, is this notion that “I’m in a bad place in my life and I want the surgery so I’ll feel better.”
“Someone caused me to lose self-esteem and I’m trying to get it back…”
Almost every day, people come to our office because their significant other, spouse, or even a “friend” has poked fun of or drawn attention to a certain part of their body and made them feel as though it looks “terrible” or “unsightly.” These nasty comments make these people feel depressed and extremely self-conscious.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
