T is for Tummy Tucks and Tushy Lifts –

tummy tucks - natural beauty??????

Are you kidding me?  Is this what we are wanting to do to our bodies today?  And what would this person have looked like if she had stood up straight and had a bra on in the first photo?

I’m not saying that plastic surgery is unsafe – well, maybe I am.  But what about losing weight, drinking water, exercising and maintaining your natural health so that you don’t have to get cut and slashed to maintain your natural beauty?  Isn’t that what you and I are all about?

This is the 21st Century and plastic surgery has come a long way since the early days.   However there are risks inherent in every surgical procedure, in every procedure where anesthesia is utilized, and every time a human being has a knife inserted into them.  Just ask rap star Kanye West whose mother died during a cosmetic surgery procedure.

According to a recent show done on the BBC, “A tummy-tuck is one of the surgical procedures which has higher complication rates because mobility is restricted after surgery. ”

That being said, eye lifts and liposuction might be okay if you do your research carefully and thoroughly.  Here is some advice that is worth following:

  • First, make sure that you are in excellent physical health, especially if you will be having same-day surgery with no aftercare.
  • Second, listen carefully to the advice of the surgeon and if you are told you’re not a good candidate, don’t go out and find another surgeon who will do it anyway.  Be sensible with your own natural health.
  • Third, always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon.

F is for Facelift – Fageddaboudit????

Celebrities Without Makeup

Demi - Yes? No? Maybe?

Look at these beautiful women – no facelifts for them.  Just healthy skin care regimens, a lot of good food, tons of great drinking water, and a good attitude!

Maybe yes, maybe no????


Cost Range:

Average Total Cost: $9,500
Surgeons fee: $6,000
Anesthesiologist: $1,200
Facility fee: $1,700
Hospital fee: $600

If some of the world’s most beautiful (Demi) and most successful (Oprah) women cut a little here and cut a little there (shhh, I’m not telling!), why wouldn’t you?

Because you are a naturally beautiful healthy senior woman and you care about your natural health and your body’s safety more than you care about your outward looks.  At least I hope so!

The risks and complications of facelift surgery are many.  Number one, it’s surgery – and any surgery involves risks with adverse reactions to anesthesia, infections, hematomas, damaged facial nerves and paralysis, wounds that won’t heal (especially in smokers).

If you’re concerned about the consequences, first do your research.  Find out about the doctor’s reputation, speak to some of the doctor’s success stories and some the doctor’s failures.  Assess your reasons for wanting to do the surgery – realize that it will change your looks, not necessarily your life.  Be realistic about the financial investment – can you really afford it?  Are there healthier alternatives about which you might feel more comfortable in the long run?

If you still say a resounding, Yes!  Well, then go ahead.  If no – stop right there and look at the healthier alternatives to cosmetic surgery in the next few posts.
