I didn’t rush into this blindly. I did my research. I knew there were risks; I had heard about the botch jobs. But I looked at countless “after pictures” before I picked my surgeon, Jenifer Altman. And I felt comfortable with my choice.
I could tell, she wasn’t in it for the money -- she asked some tough questions during our first consultation. Our conversation went something like this:
Her: Why do you want to do this?
Me: I just don’t feel very good about the way that I am – about the way that I look.
Her: Do you believe that if you are more attractive that you will be more loved?
Me: I am not sure what you mean. I mean, it’s not really about that for me.
Her: Have you told your husband?
Her: What did he say?
Me: He said: “Honey, if you really want to do it, I will support you. I think you look fine, personally. But it’s your choice to make and I will back you whatever you decide to do.” (Okay, he didn’t say that exactly but that was the gist.)
Look, I’m not going to get into all the nitty-gritty about what happened. The surgeon asked me about the look that I wanted. I had brought in some pictures to give her an idea. (And no, as lovely as they are, none of them included Angelina Jolie’s lips or Elle Macpherson’s breasts.) So after a series of consultations, we scheduled the surgery. It went pretty smoothly. Honestly, there was very little recovery time. And I have to say, I just love my new look. My husband thinks it looks gorgeous. And I just feel prettier.
But let me ask you for your opinion about it: don’t you think my blog looks better now? I just disliked that old Typepad template -- that blog banner was highly mediocre and the fonts just weren’t very me.
You know, if you’re a blogger, maybe it’s time that you asked yourself whether you couldn’t use a little nip and tuck, too. You could walk out of the operating room looking like a whole new blog….And I promise, it won’t break the bank.
So if you’re in need of a face lift, contact blog surgeon Jenifer at Fieryeyed Studio right here. And drop me a line if you do – that way I can bring you some flowers after surgery. I pride myself in being thoughtful that way:-)
