My Cosmetic Surgery Journey

 

My Under-Eye Bags Were My Moby Dick … and I Killed That Whale

July 16, 2012

Well, look who it is!

Three weeks after surgery, Ali almost feels like her usual self and she looks even better. But that doesn’t mean she’s going under the knife ever again.

Seriously, don’t even mention it.

I Wish I Never Did This

June 27, 2012

Uh oh. The stitches removal didn’t go very well… Ali’s also just learned that the recovery process will interfere with her summer plans.

Was getting cosmetic surgery a mistake?

Stitches Freak Me Out!

June 27, 2012

Ali’s feeling better every day, and now she can even see where she’s going.

But the worst step is just ahead: It’s time to get the stitches removed. Eeks!

I Feel Like Someone Put a Flounder on My Head

June 21, 2012

Two days after surgery, Ali still doesn’t feel (or look) quite like her old self. Her eyelids are swollen, heavy, and surrounded by eye goop. Hmm… Could Ali even tell she was being filmed in this segment?

It’s Not as Bad as I Thought It’d Be

June 20, 2012

It’s been 24 hours since surgery, and Ali’s feeling pretty good. Really!

She’s recovering with friends and her daughters by her side, but where’s George?

I Feel Like I Got in a Nasty Fight … and the Other Guy Won

June 19, 2012

Ali’s home from surgery! She says she feels as bad as she looks, but she’s still cracking jokes.

Get well soon, Ali!

Let’s Get My Face Cut Up!

June 19, 2012

Surgery’s just hours away. Ali and John discuss last-minute jitters, paperwork, and what they think Ali will look like post-op on their way to the doctor’s office.

This is the last time you’ll see these under-eye bags!

Enough Chitchat! It’s Time to Get These Eyes Done

June 18, 2012

Tuesday’s the day! Ali reflects on all the support she’s received since her cosmetic surgery announcement. Now she’s excited to stop talking and start recovering with her favorite trash TV.

But what if Ali chickens out at the last minute? Well, she has a plan for that, too.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Ali! We’re right there with you.

My Cosmetic Surgery Isn’t About Society’s Standards. It’s About My Own.

Save the date: Ali’s eye surgery is scheduled for June 19. She’s prepping by reading all she can about the recovery process. Turns out, people have as many accounts of plastic surgery as they do opinions about getting it.

But Ali knows why she’s going under the knife.

It’s Cosmetic Surgery, Not Some 1950s Illegal Abortion!

The eyes have had it! After thinking about it for 20 years, Ali’s decided to get cosmetic surgery.

And why keep it a secret? Ali explains her decision to share the experience online.

Would you get plastic surgery? Find out what Babble parents are saying:

“Plastic surgery is OK for me, but not my daughter.” — Ciaran Blumenfeld
