There — we asked it. And it’s ironic, really, because even in today’s modern, seemingly more open-minded playing field, where the pop culture MVPs are the Kardashians and Gagas of the world, and one can access Juvederm as easily as they might stop in for their preferred coffee order at Starbucks, the conversation surrounding plastic surgery still seems taboo. It’s a two-sided coin, and has been since origination. With dramatic series like the early 2000s hit, Nip/Tuck and present-day reality shows like Botched spotlighting the good, bad, and ugly, plastic surgery is everywhere, no matter how non-invasive or extreme, and whether you notice it or not. But, does the act of having work done in 2019 — whether in botox, implant, reduction, suction (the list truly goes on), or some other form — mean that it should still be viewed through a controversial lens?
Here at Bleu, we’re in the business of supporting what makes women happy, and have always considered the act of having any type of cosmetic surgery or enhancement a personal choice. It’s your body, after all. Some of the ladies on our team have had work done themselves, and others reserve the right to age gracefully. Which is why we want to open the floor for our readers to shake some of the secrecy surrounding surgery. And, we’d like you to be as candid as you feel comfortable. Have you had “work” done? Was it for cosmetic purposes? Preventative? Do you love it? Do you regret it? Are you against it? Do you pass judgment on others who do? Let’s lay it all out in the comments section, below.
