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.

BELOTERO

Vennemeyer frown line surgeryBelotero is designed to be used very close the surface of the skin. It is a fantastic filler for superficial wrinkles or lines in the face. It also works incredibly well for the tear trough area or hollow upper eyelids.

What is Belotero?

Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler. It is made of the same basic molecule as Voluma, Restylane and Juvederm. It is designed to be used very close the surface of the skin. It is very soft and spreads easily, helping avoid lumps or irregularities. This makes it a fantastic filler for superficial wrinkles or lines in the face. It also works incredibly well for the tear trough area or hollow upper eyelids.

How does Belotero work?

Belotero is injected into the skin very close to the surface to treat the lines and wrinkles for a smoother result than most other fillers can achieve. Dr. Vennemeyer uses numbing cream to make the procedure comfortable. Belotero is then injected in very small quantities and massaged. This process is repeated to build thin layers of product until lines are erased or significantly reduced.

When is Belotero used?

Smile Lines, Frown Lines: Belotero is perfect for smile lines around the eyes and mouth. Dr. Vennemeyer often uses Belotero to improve the corners of the mouth that get a down-turned appearance with aging. It also works very well on lip lines, sometimes called “smoker’s lines.”

Eyes and Eyelids: There are very few fillers that work well around the eyes. Belotero is among the best for tear troughs—the creases that form under the eyes extending downwards and outwards. Belotero also works remarkably well for filling the upper eyelids. Many people lose volume in the upper eyelids with aging and develop a hollow appearance to their eyes. Some people get this appearance after too much fat is removed in an upper eyelid lift. Dr. Vennemeyer is skilled at using fillers around the eyes, considered a challenging area. He often fixes bad results from other less experienced injectors.

What are the advantages?

Belotero injection is a minimally invasive procedure without much down time. Its unique properties make it the perfect filler for superficial lines, around the eyes and around the mouth.

What are the disadvantages of Belotero?

The biggest disadvantage to Belotero is that it does not last as long as other fillers in most areas of the face. Superficial lines around the mouth typically need a touch up within 3 months, but then the effects tend to last longer. Tear trough injection results last closer to 6 months after the first injection and often last 9-12 months after the touch up treatment.

What are potential side effects of Belotero?

Mild bruising and swelling are common, but can usually be disguised with cover up. Infection and severe or prolonged swelling are rare.

What is the typical recovery time?

You can return to your regular activities immediately after a Belotero injection. We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for 24 hours to avoid excessive bruising or swelling. Mild swelling may be apparent for a week or two after injection around the eyes.

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.
