How many times have you looked at a celebrity and thought, “He/She’s had some work done…”?
There’s normally a reason for it. Either the person has dramatically changed the way they look, or it’s all gone horribly wrong.
Remember when there were photos of Michael Jackson’s nose, and the media speculated how long it would be before the whole thing collapsed? Remember when [any number of celebrities] appeared at that awards show, and they were entirely wrinkle free, but looked like their face was about to pop?
Just one little mistake can take cosmetic surgery from enhancing your looks to making you look like a caricature. The easiest way to avoid it? Don’t have cosmetic surgery. But what if you really want to?
The simple answer is, don’t go overboard. Don’t change the shape of your nose, your ears, lose your wrinkles, stretch your neck and have a boob job all in one go. And don’t change your nose, then change it again, change it back, and change it again just for the hell of it.
Be reasonable in your expectations, and don’t change too much at once – and if you do plan on making more changes later, make this the foundation for those changes, not something that needs to be erased so you can start again.
You only get one body, and you only get one face. Enhance it, don’t break it.
