5 Responses To Plastic Surgery Shaming

5 Responses To Plastic Surgery Shaming

Dealing with shaming from others is, unfortunately, sometimes a result of getting plastic surgery. You are, of course, under no obligation to respond to them or engage with their trolling. However, if you do feel the need to stick up for yourself, your body, and your choices, here are some tips to help you out.

My Body, My Choices

My Body, My Choices
Much of the shaming women experience when they decide plastic surgery is right for them is because other people feel like they have some sort of say when it comes to your body. Don’t be afraid to remind them that this is your body and you can do what you want with it. Other people do not own it, nor do they have the right to make comments about it.

I’m Not Doing This For Anyone But Myself

I’m Not Doing This For Anyone But Myself
Some folks may comment that the choice to get plastic surgery must “be for a man” or something along those lines. For this sort of shaming, feel free to tell them, as in point one, that this is for yourself alone. The choice is not to please a man or make anyone like you, it’s because you decided it’s what’s best for your own body.

This Was Not An Impulse Buy

This Was Not An Impulse Buy
As you are likely well aware, the choice to get plastic surgery involves plenty of research and long days spent thinking about what is right for you. It’s not like rushing into Target and going on a shopping spree. Anyone who feels like shaming you with the phrase "you’re just doing it without thinking about it” clearly has not done their own research into how plastic surgery works and the process of deciding on doctors, procedures, risks, and rewards.

Yes, I Considered This Important Enough To Save Up For

I Considered This Important Enough To Save Up For
Sometimes people may disguise their shaming with phrases along the lines of “well how could you afford that!?” or “aren’t there better things to spend your hard-earned money on?” This might be a perfect time to ask such people if they’ve ever saved up for anything they considered important, like a new car or a fancy tech gadget. If something is important to you, it’s perfectly reasonable to find ways to pay for it.

This Body Is Just As “Real” As Any Other

This Body Is Just As “Real” As Any Other
People have a bad habit of shaming plastic surgery by calling it “fake” and anything else “real.” But that means everything from pushup bras, makeup, and hair curlers to tanning and Spanx can also be called “fake.” This is an arbitrary line to draw. Rather, you body is still as “real” as you say it is, and it is your choice how to frame whatever you decide to do with it.

RADIESSE

Radiesse is a filler that works great for enhancing cheek shape and volume. It can also be used to fill deep creases. You see immediate results after injection, plus Radiesse stimulates your body to produce collagen, enhancing your natural volume.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a filler that works great for enhancing cheek shape and volume. It can also be used to fill deep creases. It is different from other common fillers like Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero because it is not mad from hyaluronic acid. Instead, it is made out of calcium hydroxylapatite crystals that are suspended in a gel. Radiesse is a “biostimulatory” filler. You see immediate results after injection, plus Radiesse stimulates your body to produce collagen, enhancing your natural volume.

How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse is injected deeply, usually on top of bone to create a lifting and filling effect. The procedure is easily tolerated and causes minimal discomfort. Dr. Vennemeyer uses numbing cream and adds additional numbing medicine to the product to make the procedure comfortable for his patients.

You can see your result right away from Radiesse. Once the material is injected into the right places, your body will begin to produce collagen around the tiny Calcium crystals suspended in the gel. This process happens over many months. In general, the effects of Radiesse can last 18 months or more.

When is Radiesse used ?

Radiesse is a great option for restoring cheek volume or enhancing your cheek shape. It is used like an injectable implant and can improve chin and jawline shape and projection similar to a chin implant. Radiesse can improve the pre-jowl area and nasolabial folds, too. It is also frequently used to restore volume to the temple area, which deflates with age.

Aside from the face, Radiesse is a versatile filler and can be used to improve the appearance of aging hands by filling in between tendons and veins for a smoother contour.

What are the advantages of Radiesse?

Radiesse is a long-lasting filler that stimulates your body to make more of the collagen that is lost with aging. A very simple, in-office procedure can give you immediate results that last up to 18 months or more. Because the injections are deeper under the skin there is less bruising than some of the other fillers. It is an exciting procedure because you can see the improvement happen throughout the process. Dr. Vennemeyer likes to get your feedback during an injection so he can sculpt the shape and volume to your liking..

What are the disadvantages of Radiesse?

Radiesse can be an amazing tool to improve your facial appearance. Although it is long lasting, most patients see it as a disadvantage that it is not permanent. Repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results in the long term. If you do not like the result (this is very rare), it will go away eventually. Because it is made of calcium crystals, Radiesse cannot be dissolved like hyaluronic acid based fillers (Restlyane, Juvederm, Belotero).

What are potential side effects  of Radiesse?

Side effects of Radiesse typically include mild swelling that can last several days after a treatment. Bruising is also possible. Mild tenderness in the injection area can occur and responds to Tylenol. Rare problems with Radiesse include lumps that are palpable through the skin, excessive bruising or swelling, and infection. Radiesse should be used deeper in the face to avoid visibility of the product that can occur if injected close to the skin surface.

What is the typical Radiesse treatment recovery time?

Recovery after treatment with Radiesse is quick. You can return to your normal activities the same day, except for strenuous exercise. Avoid working out for 24 hours to reduce your risk of bruising and swelling. Bruising and swelling after Radiesse is usually very mild, but treated areas may appear puffy for up to a week. Cover up or camouflage makeup can be helpful if you have any bruising at the injection site. You could go out to dinner with friends after a Radiesse treatment, but as with all filler injections do not plan your treatment within a couple weeks of any important events just in case you bruise more than expected.

Botox and Fillers might seem to have similar applications but often there is a best application for your particular situation. Please do your research and consult with Dr. Vennemeyer before you commit to a specific approach.

VOLUMA

Voluma is a filler that works well for adding structure and volume to the face - providing a "lifting" effect. It is primarily used to add shape and volume to the cheeks, chin and jawline. It is NOT recommended for lips or superficial wrinkles.

What is Voluma?

What is Voluma?Voluma is a filler that works well for adding structure or volume to the face, providing a “lifting” effect. It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler that is made out of the same basic molecule as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and Belotero. The way the molecules are linked together in Voluma gives it special properties, giving it structural rigidity when injected. This provides the lifting effect Voluma is know for.

The different fillers are analogous to tools in a toolbox. Each individual filler has special properties that make it a great solution for different age related challenges. Voluma is no exception and should be used by an experience practitioner who understands the differences associated with different facial fillers and how best to use them.

When is Voluma used?

Voluma is primarily used to add shape and volume to the cheeks, chin or jawline. It is not recommended for lips or superficial wrinkles. Dr. Vennemeyer believes in creating very natural results and not overfilling. Because of the structural properties of Voluma, it can be used to restore a natural, youthful cheek shape. This can have a lifting effect, re-contouring the face to a more oval, less square shape.

How does Voluma work?

Voluma is injected deeper than other fillers. This helps it to lift your facial tissues while avoiding being detectable from the surface. Dr. Vennemeyer uses numbing agents to make the procedure comfortable. He then injects the Voluma in the needed areas to build a younger looking, natural cheek contour. Voluma can also be used to augment the chin or jawline, working like an injectable facial implant.

What are the advantages of Voluma treatments?

Voluma treatments are very easy procedures to have. The experience is comfortable and safe with a low risk of side effects. Voluma is long lasting and results can last up to 2 years. If you do not like the result, Voluma can be dissolved — although this is very uncommon as most patients LOVE their results.

What are the disadvantages associated with Voluma treatments?

There are no major disadvantages to Voluma when it is injected by a skilled plastic surgeon. As with any filler, Voluma must be injected in areas where it works well. It also must be injected at the proper depth and sculpted properly.

What are potential side effects of Voluma?

The most common side effects we see with Voluma are mild bruising and swelling. Since it is injected deeper than other fillers, we tend to see less bruising and swelling with Voluma compared to other fillers.

What is the typical recovery time

You can return to your normal activities immediately after a Voluma injection, but it is best to avoid exercise or heavy lifting for 24 hours after to reduce your risk of bruising and swelling. Medications for discomfort are not typically necessary after Voluma injections.

Botox and Fillers might seem to have similar applications but often there is a best application for your particular situation. Please do your research and consult with Dr. Vennemeyer before you commit to a specific approach.
