I have two weeks to decide if I want plastic surgery on my face.
If the light is just right or the angle just so, you can see the irregular line from my hairline down through my left eyebrow. Friends I see often don't notice it any more, folks I haven't seen in a while wonder if I did get that tattoo and why the fascination with railroad tracks and the letter "L". I never dated a Lonnie or Larry but I do have Labia, Legs, and a Larynx... hmmm.
Here's 7 months ago...
Here's the day after (about 13 months ago)...
If you're done puking, I need you to focus and give me your opinion. My insurance will cover any corrective surgery resulting from my (gasp!) skin cancer within a certain period of time. And time is running out..
Here's how I see it:
I don't mind the scar but at 42 if I can get a little forehead lift or eyelid tightening on Aetna's dime, why not? All sarcasm aside I do have some annoying droopiness in my left eye leftover from this experience. My forehead is stretched in a weird way that makes me always look worried. But I really love the movie Shrek.
... She was lookin' pretty dumb
with her finger and her thumb
in the shape of and "L" on her forehead
This is surgery I DON'T NEED. Life's little scars give you character but dang isn't it nice to put your best face forward?
Moral of the story.... wear sunscreen and don't ignore a spot that randomly bleeds for 2 years.
Would you do it?
