There is no secret that California holds the trophy for the highest divorce rate state. However, what I have recently come to learn, is that plastic surgeons are capitalizing on this dissolution of marriage. This is clearly a lucrative niche market. Stateside, some clinics are already offering divorce packages to men and women seeking surgery after a break-up. Huh! Really? But while there is no doubt that cosmetic work can boost self-esteem, how wise is it for women to undergo surgery when they are clearly in an emotionally distraught state? Are clinics not guilty of taking advantage of this unhappiness?
Okay, I get it. Looking good is the best revenge and surely the best medicine after you have been through a bad break-up or divorce. But, is cosmetic surgery the answer? I needed to get conversational and check this out for myself. So after sharing this topic with a few divorced friends and of course doing some internet surfing…I found that a lot of women confessed to having cosmetic surgery and certainly; all of them at one time has thought about it. I hear many are opting for plastic surgery hoping to buy back the body they had before childbirth. Personally speaking, I see no problem with that. One of my friends actually said, “The surgery was very much a reaction to my divorce — I wanted to re-invent myself and get MY REVENGE after the way my ex made me feel about myself.” I said, “more power to ya.”
Frankly, I take no issue with anyone taking measures to boost their confidence and self-esteem —be it weight loss or cosmetic surgery.
Just saying, women, please don’t break your bank trying to get revenge.. I know the competition is furious out there in the single lane. But make sure you are doing it for yourself and not because you want to level the playing field….Boom!
What’s your thoughts? Let’s get conversational.
