A good blogger must keep their finger on the pulse and that is why I occasionally tune in to Celebrity Big Brother.
That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
Last night saw the celebrities debate whether they set a good example to the public when undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Katie Hopkins was her usual antagonistic but entertaining self while Katie Price, surprisingly and somewhat uncharacteristically, reflected upon her own experiences and commented ‘with age comes wisdom’. She urged teenagers to wait a little longer before embarking upon cosmetic surgery and moderation in the choice of procedures. The point she was making was a good one.
Cosmetic surgery does not have to transform someone into the extra ordinary. Plastic surgeons very rarely are asked to insert enormous breast implants.
Most patients simply want to look natural and normal, often increasing breast size from an A cup to a C or a D. It’s the same for breast reduction, with those patients who have really very large breasts, that are disproportionate to their frame, wishing to reduce them to something more normal.
Patients shouldn’t feel bad about choosing cosmetic surgery, or indeed non-surgical cosmetic treatments, because it’s understandable that people should want to feel normal, or restored to their normal self. This is a common aim in women who have lost breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
So remember, when you see the celebrity cosmetic surgery disasters in Heat magazine, their aims are different and they are a different subsection of society.
