The idea of having fat sucked out of the body, having skin cut off, having your face pulled up and tucked under your hair line, and having some foreign substance put under your skin to remove wrinkles, makes me feel pain just thinking about it. Yet how many women have bought into these painful treatments.
With any type of cosmetic surgery, including liposuction, complications can occur. Some dangers of liposuction include infection, a reaction to the anesthesia, blood clotting, and fluid loss. Less severe liposuction risks include bruises and scars, a numbing of the skin, and moderate problems such as changes in skin pigmentation. Botox can cause nausea, flu syndrome, respiratory infection, forehead and eyelid drooping, and headache. Less common Botox risks include symptoms that are generally associated with the injection. These include redness, pain, swelling, numbness, bruising, muscle weakness and bleeding. I have seen women who have had face lifts and most of their face is bruised.
The pressure to look a certain way doesn’t just happen in the Western World but all around the globe.
All over the globe people are striving to be beautiful every minute of every day because humans tend to be very visual creatures and will always first observe the look of a person before finding out what is held in the other person’s heart. We are socialized to make judgements about how someone looks. Some of the beauty techniques I found look very painful.
