When Mommy Has Plastic Surgery: Part 3

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This
After she goes goes under the knife, how does she cope with her children seeing her in pain, bandaged, and bruised?

In Part 1 of our three-part series,  psychologist, and momlogic contributor Dr. Pamela Varady talked to us about her difficult decision to undergo plastic surgery and how she explained it to her 10-year-old twin boys. Pamela also allowed us to interview her boys to see how her decision affected them.

In Part 2, while driving to the surgery, Pamela questions her decision. After waking up in the middle of the night thinking about her son Dylan's negative reaction, she wonders aloud if she's doing the right thing. How will they all handle this change in her appearance and in her life?

Today, we'll see what happened after Pamela went through with the procedure. She did everything she could to prepare ther boys for the results, but how did they handle seeing their mom directly after the surgery?


Considering a surgical makeover of your own like Pamela's?

What she had done is called an endoscopic makeover. In Pamela's case, that included a brow lift (which is really a forehead lift), a cheek lift (which lifts skin that has begun to sag), fat transfers (fat was taken from Pamela's thighs and injected into her lips, cheeks and eyebrows), and last, but not least, a chemical peel. The surgery can cost anywhere from $20,000-$25,000, depending on what you have done. And remember, always check your plastic surgeon's credentials before undergoing any type of procedure.

Why no pictures of the gory not-so-pretty days after? People should see the misery along with the results.

She could’ve done better with some makeup. The lighting looks different in both pics, but honestly…she looks better but NOT something she couldn’t have done with cosmetics…definitely not worth $25,000!

It’s not that I have a problem with surgery so much. However, the interviewee was surprised that she lived through from the procedure and then spoke at length about being thoughtful of your children. Speaking of incongruent…

I HAD A CHANCE TO DO THIS BUT INSTEAD I PUT MY MONEY TOWARD MY CHILDREN FUTURE AN FURTHERMORE WHEN THE DR. HAD MY FACE ON THE MONITOR TO SHOW THE DIFFERENCE IT NEVER LOOKED LIKE ME. SAVE YOUR MONEY BUY A SUMMER HOME FOR THE KIDS TO USE NOW YOU WERE SELFISH

Why is everyone so rude about it? I think it was a good thing she did. If it makes her more confident and happy with herself, then it will benefit her children. I like how she handled the situation with her children, and think she is a very considerate mom. Also, it seems they would still have plenty of money to take the kids on a vacation too, if needed. She is a doctor, after all. How many of us would truly want to look younger if we could afford it with no problem?

She looks ok. Kind of tight and pulled. I never like when the eyes are done and they get that tight eyelid on the eye with the deep crease. I think that type of eye looks old. And she’s got that eye. I think younger faces have a softness about them.

What’s more important is that when Mommy has plastic surgery, she’s showing her daughter that natural beauty is not good enough, and showing her son that “plastic” women are prettier…a vicious cycle of low self-esteem / shallow behavior for the next generation…much more traumatic and long-lasting than seeing Mommy in bandages.

I think She looks great-and I think her eyes still look tight because it was only 4 weeks later! i think this doctor did a fabulous job! Everyone is so hard on people who want to feel good about themselves.You can see she is an obviously a concerned loving Mother!
