There are many reasons why women decide to have cosmetic procedures. A common misconception is that we have a poor self-image or we are vain. In most cases, this is not true. The decision to take control exudes confidence. Just like anything in life, if you don’t like something, you change it. And if you have the tools to do so, why not?
For many women, we perceive ourselves as looking a certain way. However, when we see ourselves in a photo or mirror, sometimes we see a different, older person–someone we don’t recognize. As we age, we lose volume in soft tissue and bone creating a drawn and tired look. Well-meaning people will ask if we’re feeling tired or if we are OK. This only reinforces our dissatisfaction with our aging face and often motivates us into making a change. Many of us want to see the youthful, rejuvenated face we had when we were younger, while others want to look the way we feel- vibrant and full of life
Whatever the reason, the decision to have cosmetic procedures should be yours and yours alone. Don’t ever let anyone talk you into a procedure and never feel bad about your choice! It’s your face, and your choice!
