Let’s be real, plastic surgeries aren’t exactly cheap. So why would a plastic surgeon ever turn you down for a procedure you want? Well, if you’re working with the right one, they’ve probably gotten pretty good at spotting the wrong candidate for cosmetic surgery – and an ethical plastic surgeon will be honest about it.
So how do you figure out when the best time for a facelift is, and when you might want to hold off?
Rate Your Face 1 to 10
Before appearing on the show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! British comedian Shappi Khorsandi toyed with the idea of getting some work done on her face. After all, being on the show meant she wasn’t allowed to wear makeup, and cameras would be on her face 24 hours a day.
But at her consultation, her plastic surgeon asked her how much she liked her face, on a scale from 1 to 10. Not how beautiful it was, but how much she liked it.
She thought about it for a minute, thinking about how she looked like her mom, her dad and her kids, and then she replied with a resounding 10.
What Else Is Going on, Girl?
At the time, the person Shappi was dating had suggested she get some BOTOX® or fillers since she’d be on TV without makeup on. Once the seed was planted, she found herself sitting in a pristine plastic surgeon’s office waiting for her consultation.
Luckily for her, the plastic surgeon picked up on her anxieties about being on the TV show and recommended that she wait to have anything done to her face until she’s 60. For now, it seemed that a facelift or nonsurgical injectables weren’t right for Shappi. And she couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
