My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery

My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery

“My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery” Here is a topic I think intrigues many. Whether you have had plastic surgery, want plastic surgery, or are just curious; I believe many at least would like to know about My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery.

Before I had anything done I would search the web for girls who looked pretty to me and that possibly had work done and find out more about it.

SO because of it I wanted to share My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery.  I could and not be that “secretive” “I’ve had nothing done- I’m natural” person. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I’ll do my best to answer them.

My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery


I’ve been getting lip injections for years now. I naturally have pretty lips but I wanted them poutier. I admit, there were times that I have gone over board. It can become addictive. I think it can age you really fast. I get Juvederm in the outer edges of my upper lip and two spots in my lower to make it very pouty. It’s said to last about 6- 12 months. I also use Botox around my eyes and forehead. I use Dr. Richard Dukes at Northside Cherokee Urgent Care to help with My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery.

1990 -My Journey with Cosmetic Surgery begin when I went under the knife and got my FIRST set of implants. I saved up and handing over a check never felt so good. I started off a 32AA and went with a 320cc silicone implant, which brought me to a small D. There is only so much room to stick two large implants on a small body. Many say, when you are considering getting implants, always go a little bit bigger than you think you want, but my breast are the perfect size for me!

I lived with those boobs for 20 years and finally at the age of 44, I decided I wanted to switch. The ones I had dropped a lot, also known as “bottoming out” I used Dr. Kenna Given, a Cosmetic Surgeon in Augusta, He took one look and knew exactly what needed to be done.

 Things didn’t stop there though.


Some say that the eyes are “windows to the soul” – but sagging, drooping, and puffy swelling around the eyes can give the false impression of being a tired soul.

I had excess skin and fat in the upper and/or lower eyelids.

I used An Alabama plastic surgeon, Dr. Rousso of The Rousso Facial Plastic Surgery Clinic.

Eyelid surgery helped restore my drooping upper eyelids and the puffy skin under my eyes that made me look more tired than I was. The good news is that corrective surgery for this common trouble spot is simpler than you think.  My main problem was puffiness. After surgery my eyelids were swollen and somewhat tight for the first days after the surgery.

After all is said and done, I have to say it was a long journey but it was all worth it. I’m happy, and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

I never understood WHY women are so secretive and don’t want to help out someone else in need.

Celebrities are forever changing their look. But when it comes to going under the knife, many play coy and keep us guessing whether they’ve actually had work done. Who else will acknowledge a nip or tuck?

 I believe, If you help someone else, It helps you. Get it?

I hope you enjoyed this entry, and hope to hear from you soon!


I just love my Michael Kors shoes in the video!
