I have to confess.
After writing about the pros of aging naturally vs. the cons of plastic surgery that removes all signs of age and gives women a similar look. I have to confess I’m not against plastic surgery. As a matter of fact, I’ve always thought that I’d be willing and even happy to have some work done.
So why was I ranting about Hollywood? What I’m objecting to is the overdone uniform look people feel they have to have to fit in. I’m unhappy with the culture that makes people feel they have to look a certain way to be accepted.
Renee Zelwigger is a good example. Here are pictures of her before and after her plastic surgery.
Let me start by saying I love Renee Zelwigger and I loved her looks. She was unique with a face that changed with her expressions, not a classic beauty with looks similar to the women around her, but that is precisely what made her so alluring.
She was beautiful and charming in her uniqueness. After undergoing plastic surgery she is still a beautiful woman, but she has lost the uniqueness that made her so enchanting. Her looks became more ordinary.
The reasons Renee Zelwigger chose to change her physical appearance does not matter. What does matter is that she felt the need for a radical change.
Plastic surgery when done well should make you look refreshed. Not new. That’s the part that interests me, and what I would consider having done.
Finding a plastic surgeon that can do that and no more is the trick. I am always looking for names to have when I’m ready. Of course, if the job is well done the only way you know is if the person volunteers to tell you. I’m always listening.
If one day you see me looking refreshed you have my permission to ask. I promise, if I’m happy, I’ll share.
BTW if you have any recommendations you’d like to share please let us know in the comments below. Merci

The first thing I want to do when I'm traveling is to look for where food and home goods are sold. The everyday products people buy fascinate me. They're as important as the local history. Plus, I love food and home goods!
Years ago I spent hours in a gigantic grocery store in Provence, France. I was with. . .
Walking down the street in NYC, I notice a woman putting red lipstick on while looking at her reflection in her handheld mirror. She’s homeless, living out of the bags that encircle her. Oblivious to her surroundings, she holds the lipstick in her hand and, with determination, she starts moving it around and around her lips, causing the definition to disappear. After pausing to carefully check her image in her mirror, she continues applying the red color.
The motion feels eerily familiar. . . .
