If you can't tell by now, Farrah Abraham of Teen Mom fame is quite the fan of plastic surgery. Between the boob job she underwent in front of the cameras and the facial work she explained in detail in a national magazine, Abraham is not one to shy away from having a little work done. But even Farrah wouldn't be crazy enough to suggest you give the gift of plastic surgery this holiday, would she?
She wouldn't actually think that people would WANT their family to give them the gift of saying their body isn't "good enough" to celebrate the holiday, would they? C'mon, you guys, you know the answer to this one! Of course she would!
Said Farrah on her Sulia channel:
yes look in past months and I have received some enhancements for the better, so let me know if this holiday season your [sic] hoping to get a gift?
The Teen Mom even offered up a link to her favorite doctor and a list of her favorite cosmetic surgery gifts. Tummy tuck, anyone? How about lipo suction [sic]? Or a facelift? Farrah approves!
I understand that Farrah is a woman confident with her appearance and proud enough of the work she's had done to let In Touch magazine not only put her on the cover but point out where doctors cut ... right there on the cover. But the blase approach she has toward cosmetic surgery frightens me. Suggesting someone give this as a gift for Christmas puts a life-changing procedure on par with buying someone a book.
Not quite what I'd have in mind ...
Just imagine what that would feel like: you open a box from your honey, and inside is a gift certificate for liposuction. What do you say? "Oh, Babe, you shouldn't have told me you don't think I'm good enough!" I'd rather have no gift than one that makes me feel like the person who loves me doesn't love me just the way I am.
Not all cosmetic surgery is necessarily bad, folks. But all of it is extremely personal, and it takes a lot of forethought before committing to something so extreme. It's not the kind of thing that you want wrapped up under the Christmas tree like a sweater that will be returned on the 26th.
If this is the way Farrah looks at cosmetic surgery, maybe it's time she stops while she's ahead.
Do you think Farrah has an unhealthy concept of plastic surgery? Would you welcome a gift certificate to a plastic surgeon for Christmas?
