It's an unfortunate fact that any woman in the public eye will inevitably be asked about her plans for plastic surgery. While famous faces – be they celebrities or politicians – are certainly held to a higher degree of scrutiny when it comes to physical appearance, women in particular constantly field questions about who they're wearing, why they chose a certain haircut and what they intend to do to keep crow's feet and laugh lines at bay.
Recently, First Lady Michelle Obama was subjected to such a barrage. The questions were sparked by Mrs. Obama's upcoming birthday, the big 5-0, and she deftly fielded questions from People Magazine about her plans to handle physical signs of aging in the years to come. The Associated Press reported on the interview, which will be featured in next edition of People.
"'Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves," she said. "Right now, I don't imagine that I would go that route [and get Botox], but I've also learned to never say never."
The First Lady's admission is an empowering one, whether she should ever have had to give it. If you are constantly frustrated by what you see in the mirror, it is entirely within your rights to explore your options with a Miami plastic surgeon. Contrary to popular belief, undergoing cosmetic treatments isn't about vanity, or how others perceive you. It's about feeling confident in yourself.
