Heidi Montag & Jocelyn Wildenstein
The other day we noticed a woman walking in Santa Monica who was a surgery (or two) away from Jocelyn Wildenstein – the New York socialite dubbed the cat lady due to her shocking appearance from excessive plastic surgery.  We wondered, in the wake of Heidi Montag’s multiple procedures, if the 23-year old wasn’t heading down the same treacherous path.  Where is the line between looking good and looking crazy?

A new book by two former models turned psychotherapists deals with the emotions brought on by the role beauty plays in a woman’s life.  What Women Really Feel As Their Looks Change by Vivian Diller, Ph.D, with Jill Muir-Sukenick, Ph.D. and edited by Michele Willens deals with the reality of changing looks.
At Beauty Undercover we love finding out about the latest age-defying products and procedures.  However, there’s a difference between trying to look good for your age and attempting to shave off too many years.  (We’ve all seen those women who don’t have a wrinkle on their face but look ten years older than their actual age.)  “The younger we try to look, the less attractive we feel,”  says author Vivian Diller who at the age of 16 felt the pressures of aging in the modeling business.  “What you really want is to look the best you can for your age.”  We totally agree.  Now can someone tell that to Heidi Montag before it’s too late!

    I personally believe that we should age gracefully. Being 40 or 50 today is not like being 40 or fifty of yesteryear. In my opinion, elective plastic surgery can be dangerous and I’ll continue to stick with my anti-aging serums. All in all, to each his own.

    Heidi Montag now looks much older than her 23 years.. how ironic.

    OMG… don’t tell me they’re the same person… she looked much better before…how sad…

    I think that just using normal preventative measures like spf and just taking good care of your skin and body is the way to go. And why not just be happy with yourself the way you are? It just makes me sad when women think they need to go under the knife to be beautiful.

    We are living longer thanks to science. A 60 year old grandmother is not the same woman her grandmother was. In this new age, there are many many things that will make people look on the outside, the way they feel on the inside. Men are just as likely to seek the same treatments especially to compete in the job market. There is a “too much”, but as we are all different the too much differs. But that is a personal issue and as we all age, our idea of what we would or would not do differs. People that were never going to use fillers or Botox do, but still will not admit to it. Jane Fonda just had surgery and does look good. Her face, her business. If your goal is perfect, it will never happen. Wasn’t there when we were 20, ain’t gonna happen. That being said, I would hope before I tripped off in to looking like the Cat Lady, my family would give me this picture. In closing, a good surgeon or derm will usually gently guide the patient in to reality.
