In nearly every magazine you pick up or website you go to, you see celebrities who have been nipped, tucked, sucked, lifted, and injected with chemicals. They shell out thousands upon thousands of dollars to make themselves look better or recapture their faded youth…only to wind up looking like something at a circus sideshow.
Joan Rivers has made a career out of her addiction to going under the knife. The recently deceased Phyllis Diller admitted to having work done on her face more than a few times. Poor Barry Manilow can’t even form a smile on his lips because his gigantic cheekbones and chin implants will not allow it. And check out this photograph of Suzanne Somers from early last year. I would not have recognized her if it had not been for my friend Steven telling that is who it is. Sure she’s aged, but the work she has had done is quite obvious.
At 65, actress Sally Field is considered an elderly woman. However it looks as though she might have stopped aging at around 35 years old. Field has never admitted to plastic surgery but come on. Can you really believe that she looks as good as she does these days without a little help? If all her parts are the one she originally came with, then I am totally jealous of her amazing genes. She needs to bottle that crap up and sell it.
Don’t get me wrong, my babies. I’m not knocking these celebs for getting their little nip and tuck. On the contrary. I’d like to talk to their plastic surgeons about getting some work done. If we can ever get Sally to talk about her work, I wan the guy (or gal) who keeps her looking young. In fact, I wouldn’t mind if they made me look like Sally…actually look like her.
I decided a long time ago that if I ever won the lottery, that I was going to get everything lifted, tucked, sucked in, and peeled off. By the time I am Sally Field’s age, I probably won’t have any of my original parts left. I will not be embarrassed by my plastic surgery. Like Joan Rivers, I am going to be loud and proud about it and recommend the doctor to all my friends who want work done.
I have a terrible fear of growing old. It’s not being old that gets me…it’s looking old. Right now I’m fine. People tell me that I could easily pass for someone in her twenties. But I am already getting gray hair and little lines around my eyes. In five years (when I turn 40), I might look as haggard as Mother Theresa. I do not want that. So if I ever win the lotto, I am going to spend a large sum of it on plastic surgery. I’m going to have my face peeled and implanted with a new chin, cheeks, and forehead; I’m going to get a boob lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. I’m going to do whatever it takes to look good, people. And it’s all going to be thanks to whomever it is that helps Sally Field look good at 65. I’m going to be a real girl made almost entirely of plastic.
Do you think you would ever get plastic surgery? What would you have done? Better yet, have you already been under the knife? How has that worked out for you?
By the way, today’s post is a part of the ongoing series Word Prompt Wednesday. Today’s prompt, from Always Write at CorbettHarrison.com, was: “Is plastic surgery an option? Without being vulgar, write about the body part still attached to you that you would most like to dis-attach and replace with a better one.”
