I am happy to announce the completion of my book on plastic surgery, specifically breast augmentation.
When I had my breast augmentation, I searched far and wide for a book on the recovery process. Even with asking friends who have breast implants, I have to admit I was not prepared for all the little things that went along with the recovery process. If I can help people recover quicker and in a less painful manner from breast augmentation then I feel like this book was worth all my learning the hard way.
Here I sit on the couch in jeans drinking iced tea. I just need out. After surgery I am going nuts! Cabin Fever has set in. Never have I had an unnecessary surgery before. The pain will all be worth it! As my grandmother used to tell me, “Beauty is Pain.”
“With plastic surgery, the general anesthetic is like a black-velvety sleep, and that’s what death is – without waking up to someone clapping and going, ‘Joan, wake up, it’s all over and you’re looking pretty’.”
The past week has been one of the most stressful weeks in years. I had breast augmentation sugery on Tuesday, between the unknown and pain I was beyond overwhelmed. Rarely am I one to be so vulnerable in front of others. However, this decision made showing emotions in front of others inevitable.
Also, this gave me the amazing opportunity to witness others true colors. There were some people who really surprised me. Not all were pleasant surprisees, but valuable nonetheless. I am quickly learning location does not really matter with real friends or important people in your life.
My sugar girlfriends have been the most supportive and helpful throughout this past week. Even though some of them are literally half way across the globe, distance is relative. They can fathom and understand what it is like to make big decisions on your own.
Independence cannot be explained it has to experienced.
‘I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.’
