Stories of cosmetic and plastic surgery patients - told in our own words -- are
often very emotional because a person's life and self-image are being improved,
often, for the first time.
When a woman has cosmetic surgery, it seems like she suddenly finds herself
with, say, smoother, less wrinkled skin or -- thanks to liposuction -- fitting
into clothes that were impossible to wear before. In almost all cases, some
unattractive or troublesome area of the woman's face or body is taken away.
Imagine how you would feel, being suddenly more alluring in your own, and
others' eyes. We bring you these narratives so you'll more fully understand the
depth of emotion, the worries and, sometimes, the frustrating and painful road
to recovery and a more attractive person.
And while the accounts you read here may tug at your heart strings, bear in mind
most cosmetic procedures are serious surgeries. The lesson? If you are
motivated to consider a cosmetic procedure after reading one of these stories,
remember that going under anesthesia and surgery always carry some medical
risk. So carefully study any procedure in which you are interested and
carefully chose your practitioner and his background.
