When Clairol introduced its slogan: “Does she or doesn’t she? Only her hairdresser knows for sure”, it had enormous impact. Within 10 years, the number of American women who dyed their hair had jumped from 7 percent to nearly 50 percent. But times have changed. Today, when people ask: “Does she or doesn’t she?” they are more likely to be asking if she had cosmetic surgery or Botox injections. I think it’s great that we have so many more options today for “lookin’ good, feelin’ good”, and cosmetic surgery is one of those options. My opinion for what it’s worth: Do your research first.
- Be sure you are a good candidate, physically and emotionally. (Timing is important. Surgery and depression usually aren’t a good mix.)
- Research the credentials of your surgeon with care. (Don’t take Aunt Susie’s assurance that Dr. X is good just because her hairdresser said so!)
- And then, share everything about your medical history and habits with your surgeon. (Holding back information might just be perilous to your surgical outcome.)
