Is plastic surgery worth it to age “better”?

Plastic surgery is one of those topics that either makes you cringe or just shrug your shoulders because you could care less about it.

I’m all for people doing what they want with their bodies. I don’t like super strong opinions about what someone “should” or “shouldn’t” do especially when the impact is extremely small.

So when all the magazines would talk about Courtney Cox getting “bad” plastic surgery, I rolled my eyes. So typical for people to criticize, and so (sadly) typical for a woman in her 50s in the entertainment industry to feel pressured to do stuff like that.

 
But recently she’s been in the news for saying she had all her fillers dissolved and now is totally natural. She realized she went really overboard with procedures and ended up looking artificial, so had to change her perspective on aging and changing.

Left: Courteney with fillers. Right: back to natural!


I just love this and wanted to share. YES, you should do what you want. YES, you deserve to love the skin you’re in. But I LOVE when we can find the beauty in getting older instead of trying to fight against it.

Just like we have to maintain a good relationship with our bodies through doing yoga and eating well, we have to do the same when it comes to aging. I’m about to turn 30 and while yes, I still look very young, I do notice changes in my body that weren’t there 10 years ago! They’re not bad, but I could totally see myself spiraling down into the “OMG I’M GETTING OLD” mentality.

So I just loved seeing an example of someone turning that spiral around and wanted to share 🙂

    I’m lucky enough to have good genes and also don’t look my age. I turned 40 last year, and believe me, I didn’t embrace it. But as I approach 41, and still get taken for being in my early 30s, I notice that although mentally I feel better than ever, my body is telling me that I have to look after it a bit more diligently.

    I would hope that people don’t feel so pressured that they feel the need to have plastic surgery, but alas they do. I much prefer to see someone for their real self and was so happy to see Courtney Cox doing that. She looks way better without the fillers. Waaaaaay better.

    My grey hair is slowly overtaking the rest and losing weight is now much harder than it used to be – even 5 years ago, but I have the advantage of a partner by my side who tells me how sexy he finds the greys and would never tell me I need to slim down.

    Love yourself for who you are, greys, wrinkles, rolls and all…

    Easier said than done !!

    Don’t care, but to me she looks better with no “fillers”. Couldn’t even tell it was her in the first picture.

    I’m 42. I’ve always said that I wouldn’t rule out anything but I didn’t have specific plans for plastic surgery. Now, I see how even the smallest procedures have made huge differences in people’s self-esteem, and I am of the attitude that everyone should do what makes them happiest. I have had a tummy tuck and have plans for a lower face lift when my neck decides it wants to get any saggier! 🙂

    I think it is every ones own business. People can do whatever they want with their faces or bodies. I have never thought i would have plastic surgery ever. But yes as the time went by i changed my mind. I did not wanna change drastically but just to have my wrinkles go and some lipo done. I traveled abroad to have it done in Prague just because i just could not afford to have it done here in UK. And well i would again visit Forme clinic because i am now happy with myself and i never now what imperfection will occur next time
