Considering plastic surgery … at 15!

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:30 am

looksCutting class on June 22, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

Okay, here I go. I am 15 years old and in high school the past few years I have only had one boyfriend. All my friends tell me that I am pretty and that I should have a lot of boyfriends but not to worry about it. Well, I am and I am begining to think that it is the way I look so I am thinking about getting plastic surgery to change the way I look so maybe I could get a boyfriend. I have been told from a few boys that they think I am pretty and nice but they would never go out with me. I have no clue why that is the way they feel. I would love it if you could help me with this little problem.

— Sunkissed

Dear Sunkissed,

Hey, can anyone help me find a photograph of Jocelyne Wildenstein on the web? Breakup Girl’s supercomputer was unable to locate one. NYers, at least, will know whom I mean. Seeing a photo of her may be just what I need to scare Sunkissed straight.

But in the meantime, for those of you currently in the dark, perhaps including Sunkissed, here is what The Daily Telegraph had to say about JW: “At 52, she has had so much plastic surgery that she was dubbed the `Bride of Wildenstein’ by one US newspaper. She looks like an alien or a strange bird, her eyes tightly pulled up to either side of her white domed head, her inflated lips drawn back in a gruesome permanent smile. Even her favourite plastic surgeon, Dr Richard Coburn, refuses to take credit for his work. `She did something with her hair and it changed her whole look,’ he has said. [BG snorts: “Ha! Her HAIR?!”] One newspaper reported that when Jocelyne arrived in his waiting room, her appearance so terrified the other patients there that they fled.”

AND Jocelyne is in the midst of an ugly divorce. Have I made myself clear that plastic surgery is not the answer?

But oh, Sunkissed, Breakup Girl is so sad that you are even considering such a thing. It’s one thing to catch yourself wondering what to wear — or how to do your hair — in order to appeal to boys, but entirely another to try to physically, permanently change something about what I’m sure is a perfectly “normal” face under any standards. I mean, if you were born with a birthmark that randomly happened to spell, “No, thanks, I’m already seeing someone,” then Breakup Girl might look through her Rolodex under “safe, non-surgical, laser removal.” Or something. But this is not exactly your situation. Aside from all the physical dangers and discomforts — not to mention who on earth is going to pay for this for you — consider this: you “lift” your eyes, change your nose, reshape your chin — and everyone will know. Everyone will think it was a totally weird and unecessary thing to do. And then even fewer people will go out with you. Harsh, I know, but I’m just trying to give you a way more convincing reason than “BUT SUNKISSED, YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL THE WAY YOU ARE.”

Now, even more importantly, we need to find some way — laser? — to replace your self-esteem. First of all, it is not weird or lame for you to have had only one boyfriend at age 15. Or, to put it another way, your friends who have had more are not necessarily cooler or happier than you are — they just have a different set of problems. I know I may sound like a clueless grownup saying that, but I promise. Now, I’m not sure why those boys say they would never go out with you, but I’m fairly certain that they were just trying to be cool, play it safe, avoid getting some rumor started that they don’t want to deal with. I’m also pretty certain that, well, if you’re already decided that your only hope is to go under the knife, then you’re not carrying yourself around school with a whole lot of security and confidence, are you? People can sense that. If you’re stooping your way down the halls, hiding behind your notebooks, and forlornly asking people if they think you’re pretty, that — not your actual looks — is what’s going to take you out of the running for homecoming queen. It’s not attractive. And then no one asks you out, and then you stoop more. Here’s what to do: find something to do in or outside of school — besides taking “pretty” surveys — that you love. A sport, a club, a volunteer project (except no candy-striping in a cosmetic surgeon’s office). Do it. This is not dumb grownup “find a hobby!” advice. The experience of activity and discovery will affect how you look, it will. It will occupy you, give you confidence, a sense that you are someone behind your face. Even conventionally “pretty” girls don’t always have that.

  4. If you are purchasing a new phone for yourself, your teen, or your significant other, seek
    out a GPS-enabled model. Taking the computer repair
    specialist route also has its ups and downs, but perhaps more advantages
    than disadvantages. The top element may be the mobile spy software program performs
    on all phones which includes i – Phone, android,
    and blackberry.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

  18. An average lifted truck’s bumper height is 20 inches taller as opposed to bumper of the standard truck.
    Transport companies, resellers and importers, distribution centres, warehouses and manufacturing companies all need use
    of shipping containers, and also the forklift container ramp is the ideal solution. However, getting any seat accessories from
    any supplier may well not provide desired performance.

  22. Engineers have come up with a solution to resolve these
    issues with a help of mobile software that will act as a mobile spy to monitor all the activities in a particular
    mobile phone. This computer software installs discreetly and no matter who is working with the
    cell phone they will not detect the cell phone
    monitoring software installed. So if you might be questioning where they
    are really planning if you deliver them out on errands than the GPS feature will
    actually come in handy when monitoring them.

  28. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot
    me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  32. Some supply spy application for mobile phone in impossibly reduced prices, be cautious, there might be
    a hitch there. Both online and offline stores that
    sell surveillance, or so called ‘spy’ equipment, post disclaimers
    stating that the products they sell are not to be used illegally.

    Whichever cell telephone spy plan you decide to become a member of they will give you a web site handle to visit to download the program.

    I had to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours
    require a lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog
    however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a
    blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let
    me know if you have any suggestions or tips
    for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
