There was nothing wrong with her "before" picture. Cosmetic surgeons who work on people that are not scarred (as in born with obvious birth defects) are Svengali, every one of them.

Because of limits on medical malpractice suits, MarDock wouldn't be eligible for more than $250,000 if she wins this court battle.

Yay for tort reform!

Sorry, but Porsches do not just pay for themselves. There are only so many disfigurement victims each year, so I don't really see it as a problem for surgeons to practice on the Housewives of Whatever (TM).

A licensed dermatologist called her and said they had a routine non-invasive procedure that would make her look younger, for free.  Being proud of the way she looked doesn't contradict wanting a little freshening up at no cost.

Sucks.  Most women 'of a certain age' can relate to the temptation to fight the aging process...which waits for no one.
It's a shame women aren't allowed to age gracefully anymore and feel obligated to get the lifts, injections, treatments, etc.
Men can be fugly as hell, but if they have a big pile of money, women will still flock to them...can't really say the same about women.

They invited an ageing machine.
 
2014-08-11 12:45:58 PM  
Just my opinion but, if you haven't figured out by nearly 60 years of age that taking any risk to have a possibly slightly younger looking complexion then you haven't learned enough. It is just sad that by that age you can't find a way to be accepting or even proud of every line or wrinkle.
I'm not suggesting that certain parts of the medical community aren't snakes, because they are, and that there is still plenty of social pressure to look younger, but you can't be a truly strong person and still consider this as a very risky option worth taking.
 
2014-08-11 12:46:05 PM

My thoughts exactly when I first heard "RF".

No, ladies. You will not look 20 years old forever. If you want to age gracefully, step one is to stop buying issues of Cosmopolitain & to stop watching Bravo. Step two is simply to know that while you might not look "young", you can still look damn good.

How do you convince the public to enact regulation whose sole purpose is to protect large corporations from lawsuits filed by innocent people they've hurt? Why, publicize stories about how Those People are making millions off of frivolous lawsuits, and it's raising everyone's insurance premiums!

Sure, plenty of medical conditions can cost more in total than 250k to treat and that doesn't include lost wages or other expenses they might incur, but at least the corporation that crippled, scarred, injured or killed them is protected and undeserving poor people aren't wining the lawsuit lottery and god knows that's the important thing.

Are you saying that that woman hasn't had some work done? Because crow's feet don't normally curve up into the forehead. Not unless you've had a little pulling done around there. and that's just what I can see not knowing a damn thing about plastic surgery.

Men in the media are just as unrealistically photogenic as women, and the fact that some women are willing to put up with an undesirable man because of his net worth say a lot more about those women than it does men in general.

Me, reading headline: Radio frequency?  That's not energetic enough to slightly warm a glass of water.  It must have been something else associated with the procedure.

Me, looking at pictures: Sweet fark.  OK, that looks like it could come from a periodically oscillating phenomenon.  The spacing looking microwave, not radio (although I think that's a semantic quibble on my part).

Funny, and point taken!  However, come live in a high net worth part of the country and you'll soon start to feel the disdain from other women (and men!) in your community who can't fathom why you'd chose to 'let yourself age naturally'.  Many of these anti aging procedures are now the norm for anyone with money.  Personally, I don't give a Fark, and am lucky to look young for my age, but there's a lot of judgement out there.

Agreed, but you would (or wouldn't) be surprised how many women take this dreadful path.  Personally, I like making my own money.  Anyone who marries for money has to earn every penny.

So she was "sold" a medical procedure at a price that was agreeable. Again, did she actually require the procedure? I guess, her lawyers are going to get rich but you know, sucks for her face.

Honestly I don't presume to judge them, it's their life to live.  Hell I don't really hold much truck with 'love' myself So I can't really fault them for finding other reasons to partner up in the game of life.  I've been with my wife for over a decade.  She is my lover, my friend, and my economic partner but we started out as convenient fark buddies.  We love each other because of the life we have built together, we did not build a life together because we love each other.  That's a Disney movie, and those don't last very long. They usually run 90 minutes.

My point is that love might be an important part to a successful marriage but I don't think it's at the top of the list and if the 'gold diggers' can make it work then more power to them.

I gotcha, it was just a springboard for a dumb joke on Monday.

I've never looked, but I think the price of plastic surgery must be coming down because there's a lot of places popping up in the upper- and middle- middle-class neighboorhoods around here. There are a lot more obviously low-rent face jobs visible in the shiatty supermarkets and not-so-nice malls these days.

To be fair, her alternative without the treatment would be the normal female aging process, which I understand is something like Donovan drinking from the false Grail.
