Whose choice? Mine

02 March 2009

While I work in the nip and tuck trade, I know that not everyone is a fan of cosmetic surgery. That's fine - if we all liked the same things the world would be a pretty boring place after all. But the fact that some protesters have been reacting to our latest advertising campaign - featuring the lovely Claire Thornton - has really got me thinking about what exactly some people out there think about companies like the one I work for.I like it when my friends come to me for advice and I always have all the latest, up-to-date news about the plastic surgery field to tell them. But that doesn't mean I'd try to talk any of them into a procedure, and I only tell them about cosmetic surgery news when I know they're interested - which I have to say a lot of them are! I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's all about the individual's choice. As long as you aren't hurting anyone else, I think everyone should be allowed to make their own choices without being judged. I would hate to think that people saw me as trying to push my beliefs on anyone else when the whole thing about cosmetic surgery these days is that grown men and women can make choices for themselves - and if they want cosmetic surgery that will make them feel better about themselves, who is anyone to tell them not to?
