First Lady Michelle Obama Green Lights Plastic Surgery

© Syda Productions –

Michelle Obama turned 50 recently, and she looks gorgeous! She’s hitting the point where many women start to consider plastic surgery.

As hormones change, so does the skin. Wrinkles begin to become more noticeable and skin sags.

Michelle Obama recently commented on whether she approves of women having plastic surgery or receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic to look more youthful:


Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves. Right now, I don’t imagine that I would go that route, but I’ve also learned to never say never.

 – Michelle Obama

Health Over Beauty

While the first lady voices her approval for beauty enhancing procedures, she does want to make sure everyone understands that her main message is for women to be healthy. She knows this firsthand with eating fruits and vegetables, getting her yearly checkups, and exercising regularly.

What’s important to remember is that plastic surgery shouldn’t be used in place of a healthy diet and exercise routine. It should be used in addition to it, or as a way to achieve the body you aren’t able to achieve by eating well and working out.

Facial Fat Transfer for Anti-Aging

An excellent example is fat transfer. As we age, our facial features lose fat and fullness. This side effect of aging occurs despite what we eat. To add fullness to the face, many people decide to have fat transfer to the face.

Since the abdominal area, buttocks, and thighs can have a plentiful supply of fat, cosmetic surgeons can remove it with liposuction. For an additional fee, it can be sent to an FDA-registered laboratory for processing. After processing is completed, the fat can then be injected into the face.

The extra fat provides a healthy, youthful, and plump look while the adipose (fat) tissue can thicken and smooth the skin.
