There is no secret that in our mainstream American culture there is a specific ideal of beauty that women should live up to. There is an ideal for men as well but for this present moment we are going to focus on the expectations there are around how women should appear. In our culture right now plastic surgery is more prevalent than it has ever been. That is not to say that there should be any shame or judgement around plastic surgery because it is every women’s choice to do what they wish with their bodies. Plastic surgery is a great way to boost your confidence and certainly our beauty norms won’t be shifting over night. So what are some of the ways that women are encouraged to look?
Be hairless. As many women know this is not an easy feat. There are many places on a woman’s body that grow hair and the only place that you are allowed to grow hair is on your head, on your arms (within reason) and then sometimes a little bit of pubic hair is just fine if it is shaved and shaped in just the right adorable way. Oh and eyebrows but they need to look a certain way. Maintaining all of that shaving and plucking can be extremely overwhelming and some of the best ways to manage that is by undergoing permanent hair removal with laser hair treatments. It’s a great way to keep from managing your hair growth so you can have more time and money for other activities.
Women are supposed to have smooth clear skin. That can anything from making sure you are acne free to making sure that you don’t have any unsightly red and blue veins spreading their way across your face, hands and thighs. Veins are a perfectly natural part of life and occur from age and frankly from gravity. However if you would like to have less prominent veins you can undergo varicose vein treatment so you can feel and look young again.
Have you ever heard of such a thing as the thigh gap? Women are supposed to be thin but curvy. You need to have big boobs and big breasts but you can not, I repeat you can not have a lot of fat on you. Does this seem like something that is possible for a woman? There are many kinds of plastic surgery that can help a woman get an ideal body from breast augmentation to liposuction.
Something that is very in these days is having a small, but not too small, nose. The size and shape of your nose is obviously not something that you can control and yet we still have this notion that a nose should look one way over another. The most done plastic surgery job in Hollywood is rhinoplasty.
There are many other expectations that are put on women from the size of their lips to having wrinkle free skin. You can do lip injections, botox, rhinoplasty, varicose vein treatment and laser hair treatment. Something to keep in mind though is that your body is perfect as it is. There is no need to change unless you feel empowered and want to. Love you, ladies, and your body is a part of that.
