“I really want a tummy tuck, but my husband won’t let me.” I sat across the table from my new client as she excitedly described how all of her sisters have had plastic surgery and she’s been pining for a certain procedure. “My husband says, ‘I don’t want to loose my wife!'”—she laughs thinking about it. Like all fantastic husbands, he wants his wife to be happy and feel confident in herself…but the thought of surgery going wrong and loosing her, it’s just a risk he doesn’t want to take.
When a person decides to work with a stylist, there’s usually a change approaching, or some big push to (finally) put himself/herself first. It could be a new job or a promotion—you want to look and be perceived a certain way. Or maybe, like the woman mentioned above, you’ve been waiting to treat yourself. (For some, that’s a pedicure, others a new wardrobe or trip; life’s all about perspective, right?)
As we chatted, I was entertained by her story and very bluntly said that what she wanted to accomplish with a tummy tuck, we definitely could achieve through clothes. Really! (Husband, don’t worry, I’ve got this!)
Instead of yo-yoing around with your weight or bouncing from procedure to procedure, know that what you put on (clothes & makeup) can do all kinds of wonders for making…your midsection smaller, your nose narrower and so on.
