Billie Langford had hated her nose her whole life.
“It was just one of those things you just live with,” she says, explaining that rhinoplasty just never rose to the top of her priority list.
But then she started seeing a new dentist who pointed out that the biggest problem wasn’t how her nose looked, but how it worked.
After breastfeeding her third baby, Jennifer Sesser felt a bit discouraged. “I loved my breasts when I was nursing,” she says. But post-weaning, her breasts felt like shadows of their former selves.
“I just felt like after three kids my breasts were deflated,” she says. “I needed them, mentally and physically, to be better.” Breast augmentation gave Sesser exactly what she needed to feel like herself again.
For Vivian Campbell, plastic surgery was about more than looking good. It was about seeing well.
Campbell had blepharoplasty, commonly known as an eyelid lift, with Christine Puig, MD, when she realized her sagging lids were impeding her vision. “I recognized that I was struggling to see well when I was driving,” Campbell says. “My peripheral vision had some significant impairment related to my eyelids.”
