 So what about plastic surgery?


"Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art"

-Garson Kanin


Aging gracefully -- it sounds so poetic, doesn't it? Like those lines and wrinkles will slowly form to somehow make you more beautiful over the years. While that may certainly be the case, aging gracefully is less about how your body reacts to the march of time and more about how you react emotionally to the effects of those changes to your body.


So what about plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery is an increasingly popular solution for people who are unhappy with their appearance, a billion dollar industry that included nearly 50% more procedures in 2006 than in 2000. But as our mothers taught us long ago, just because everyone else is doing it doesn't make it a good idea.


As Forbes recently pointed out, a body doesn't know why a scalpel is cutting it. Even if the elective surgery seems like "no big deal" to you, your body may have something different to say. Every surgery has risks, and plastic surgery comes with its own set of them: numbness, seroma, necrosis, hematoma, infection, and very rarely...death. Those are some scary words, and though not everyone will experience those nasty side effects, anyone who is considering going under the plastic surgeon's knife needs to be educated about them. Even the wildly popular LASIK surgery, which is quick and relatively non-invasive and painless, is garnering a second look from the medical community as some patients complain of chronic eye dryness, face pain, blurry vision, and difficult driving at night.


So you've got some new wrinkles, your lips don't look like Angelina's, you've lost some weight or have had a baby and are feeling a little saggy in your mid-section. You know what? We here at That's Fit love you just the way you are. We don't care if you fit into the classic definition of beautiful, but we do care about your health and well-being. We want you to feel good because you're taking care of yourself, and we want you to feel good because you're comfortable in your own skin. Though there are times when plastic surgery is warranted, if it's just those pesky trouble spots are bringing you down, we want to help you improve them, without unnecessarily putting your health at risk. That's why we spend so much time talking about good nutrition, resistance training, cardio, skin and hair care, sustainable living, stress reduction, and general overall health.
