It’s long been known that men and women have turned to cosmetic surgery when the wrinkles started to appear in order to look a little more like they did in their hey days. But… whoever heard of turning to cosmetic surgery just to look your age?
Apparently, this is what more and more men and women in the US are doing every year. A US surgeon told ABC News that many of his patients are overworked men and women in good jobs who don’t want the surgery to eradicate their wrinkles, but ‘just to soften them’.
Perhaps it’s true that the daily stresses of modern life are making us wrinklier and more haggard as the years pass by. Is this really the case though?
I wonder whether, in the US, this is more to do with the fact that super-hot celebrities – whether they’re in their 20s or their 50s – are so commonly seen that people are beginning to think that looking normal at 45 is really looking old. ‘Young’ is the new normal.
My advice? Don’t get cosmetic surgery because you think you look older than you are. Get it because you don’t like the way you look! Stop comparing yourself to other people… or you will always find something to be unhappy with.
