Plastic surgery seems to be getting more and more popular by the year, and yet there is still often a huge stigma attached to undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. Luckily, there are celebrities who speak out about their own experiences to help de-stigmatize the trend, and the latest star to do so is Tamra Judge of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Judge recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live where she opened up to Andy Cohen about undergoing procedures on her eyes, lower face, and neck. The 49-year-old told the host that she doesn't refer to her choices as a "comeback" or even a "face lift," explaining that she simply wanted a "little refresh" for herself.
Of course, Judge doesn't have to explain her choices to anyone, but she took her point one step further this week by sharing a personal post on Instagram about her surgery. She posted a series of photos to document her recovery, as well as details about the medical process. "Today it's been 17 days and I feel great," Judge said. "My neck is still stiff and my ears and jawline are slightly swollen and numb. That will all change in a few weeks. Incision are behind my ear and hairline, under my chin."
But the best part of her post came towards the end, where she shared a refreshing message for all people who have had (or are considering having) plastic surgery. "I'm open and honest about it because I want women to know that everyone gets old even people on TV," she said in her caption. "And there is nothing wrong with growing old gracefully if that's what you want. It's just not for me!"
Judge's post proves the point that there's no "right" way to age — some people choose to have surgery, while others don't. Both choices are valid, and at the end of the day, we should all do a better job of respecting each other's personal decisions. Hopefully if more people speak out about their choices, the stigma surrounding plastic surgery will cease to be.
