Confession: Its been over six months since I’ve bought new make-up.
Since COVID-19 shut the world down its just been face masks and Zoom calls, and let’s just be real: for me, it’s been heaven.
Don’t get me wrong, I'm a Dolly Parton graduate of big hair and loud make-up (#TeaseItToJesus, ladies) so I do miss the ceremony of dolling up before I get down, but given that I’ve nowhere to go, I’ve toned it down.
I’ve toned it down so much, and for so long, I’m now like a Bindi Irwin documentary, come see me in my natural stasis! “Look closely, but be advised, images may disturb viewers…”
Fine lines, sun spots, sagging — you name it, I’ve probably got it. But I mean, where does one even begin?
Asking for a friend…
One of the worst kept secrets in the ladies' locker room at Cowboys Fit at The Star, is anyone in the know, knows to go see Dr. Sean Hill at Lone Star Plastic Surgery.
It’s not all nose jobs and tummy tucks anymore. The menu of items related to personal reconstruction has increased greatly over the last decade. Many of them you can do in a few simple out-patient visits.
They even have this thing called a liquid facelift — and I never thought anything ever felt more on-brand for Frisco than a “liquid facelift” until I found out you don’t get to drink while doing it. #MorganSad
But nevertheless, it sounds amazing, and no one is gonna be stitching the skin by my ears back like they described a facelift in every 80’s movie ever.
Dr. Hill explains that it consists of “a hearty filler on the cheekbones, which then restores the volume and provides a lift” — and I didn’t get the rest because my brain heard the word “hearty” and now I’m thinking about food and now I feel like I should also inquire about the tummy tuck. Sigh.
Let’s be real though…
It’s sorta a wild time to be considering a full-on surgical procedure, that’s just the truth. If you're in the market for breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, I would recommend getting it on the books now, because with COVID-19 there could be (sometimes not, but erring on the side of caution) issues with just finding space in hospitals.
Having said THAT, we’re all still sorta on a bit of a lockdown, and we’re not seeing each other in person as much, so with only a two or three day recovery time, you can get a less invasive treatment in relative secrecy, so it's basically an ideal time.
Not that you should be ashamed, AT ALL, but for me, I'm going to want you to think it was the perfect blend of magic, genetics, and washing in circles vs rubbing to prevent wrinkles. You know, HONESTY.
Specifically, I’m talking about EmbraceRF treatments. And I’m not staring, but I’m also looking directly at you *Claire (named changed to protect the messenger) you can’t use those camera filters forever, and we all know your skin isn’t gradient. #SoMonet
Dr. Hill performs these office treatments in about an hour using local anesthetic. EmbraceRF is actually a combination of 2 procedures, FaceTite and Morpheus8, performed one after the other. You can find more details on the Lone Star Plastic Surgery website, but basically it's as cool as it sounds.
And I don’t know if there is a red pill or blue pill offered after the Morpheus8 so…to that end if you get that joke, you’re old enough to consider this procedure.
Dr. Hill also performs these amazing face peels that are so crazy effective that I don't have words to describe just how insanely amazing they are… WATCH this interview with Dr. Hill to “get it” and then order one. You can do it at home (and spare yourself the “I'm a little red in the face” moment) or in the office, where they'll take great care of you.
Have you ever heard of Diastasis Recti? Me either, but it’s incredibly common. So, (and imagine me in my white lab coat, tortoiseshell-rimmed glasses while holding a clipboard) — “Diastasis recti, or rectus abdominis diastasis, is defined as a gap of about 2.7 cm or greater between the two sides of the rectus abdominis muscle. The distance between the right and left rectus abdominis muscles is created by the stretching of the linea alba, a connective collagen sheath created by the aponeurosis insertions of the transverse abdominis, internal oblique, and external oblique…”
So yeah, you won’t die, but uggghhhhhhhhh, it sucks! in Lamens terms, it’s that pooch of belly fat you just can’t seem to shake.
If you think this might be something you have, definitely consider your surgical options, and throw out the guilt. Yeah, you’d be getting a tummy tuck, but your tummy LEGIT got some issues, and it can’t be fixed with diet or exercise. Chuck that guilt and get you a new tummy, honey.
Your natural beauty…refined.
