I am considering getting minor plastic surgery but my husband is against it. It’s not like I am getting a facelift or anything super major. I just want a little something to make me feel better. How can I get his support? I need it.
I am not Joan Rivers
Ok, first, let me say that I love Joan Rivers. And I especially love the fact that she didn’t give a flying fig about what anyone thought of her choice to have plastic surgery. She was a free spirit, just like my Deep Eddy Vodka…join for a ruby red grapefruit cocktail? It’s that time of year!
On to the real talk. Obviously, plastic surgery is a huge personal decision and one that should be carefully thought through and planned. My first piece of advice would be to wait at least 6 months to a year so that you aren’t making a knee jerk decision about the surgery. (Usually it takes books far in advance anyway…at least, that’s what a friend told me). That should give you and your husband time to come to terms with the decision. Consider taking your hubby to the consultations with you, because this may give him the reassurance his needs to accept your decision. Guaranteed, the doctors have seen it all and likely know how to allay fears. Big sip of vodka..AHHH…so damn good.
The ultimate decision is up to you, though, and what is going to make YOU feel good and feel your best. I am sure he is just worried that it may not go smoothly or that you will not like the results, or that you’ll look like a different person. A good doctor can usually alleviate those fears. Go in to this with a realistic expectation and great referrals and feedback about your doctor.
You’ll do great. I am a big believer in making yourself feel better about YOU. That’s why I am refilling my Deep Eddy!
