October 21 on Rock Ed Radio>> MY BEAUTY, MY BUSINESS.....and how!

Wanting whiter skin and going for a sharper nose is not confined to Filipinos. We know that. So let's cut ourselves some slack and just try to discuss the science and art (cough*) of reconstructive surgery on Rock Ed Radio.
Lahat naman gustong gumanda. Lahat naman tayo may idea kung ano gusto nating itchura. (topbilling Angelina Jolie, Pamela Anderson, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt ---sila ang pinaka-ginagaya ng karamihan ng mga nagpapa-retokeh sa Amerika) If this desire for better looks is within the natural human-being range, then let's discuss how far does one go to achieve it? We know that science and the epidemic of medical breakthroughs can take us as far and as high as Morgan Fairchild's nose.
Yikes.

So ------- let's talk to Ms. Cristalle Belo Henares of Belo Essentials and Dr. Ager Geraldez of the Belo Medical Group. We also have recent patient Vicky Ras guesting along with Deus Ducepec of Operation Smile.

We sent out invitations to PDI Columnist (Makeover911) Kinny Salas and METRO's Erica Paredes to join us, we hope they can make it.
Luho lang ba ito o mahalaga? Let's talk about the facts and figures involving reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery and the makeovers we have all tried or have been planning to try.

No judgment, no chismis. Just an attempt to get to a broader understanding of this business called beauty and what it does to the Filipino psyche.

Kung may mga tanong, mag post dito. Minsan hindi umaandar ang TextJock ng NU. Kung may mga comment, manatili sana sa info-oriented questions. Unless kailangan nyo talagang ilabas yan, sige lang.

Game.

I see a lot of people who really look like they've had surgery/ Obvious na obvious talaga!! is it possible to have surgery done naman na hindi halata?

Pang mayaman lang ba talaga ang cosmetic surgery? tulad ba yan ng cellphone na magiging affordable din someday?

marga said...

Cristalle! How painful are the procedures, honestly?

If "to age gracefully" is a good trait, does cosmetic surgery make us go against that saying? Then does that mean we are shallow people?

Sa opinyon ko po, malaki ang epekto ng media kung kaya maraming tao ang nagiging interesado sa pagpaparetoke (o pwede ring hindi nakukuntento sa sarili).. Naniniwala kase ako na ang media ang nagdidikta o nagpapatinag kung ano nga ba ang maganda in general.. Para lang yang damit, may uso.. Dati, hindi naman gaanong binibigyang pansin ang malaking pwet o ang malaking boobs pero nang sumikat na ang mga artistang may taglay na ganitong katangian na 'inborn' naman sa kanila, maraming biglang naging interesado na magkaron ng malaking boobs o malaking pwet na naging batayan ng kagandahan.. Hanggang sa nauso na ang kung anong anik anik na pwedeng bilhin para maging 'maganda (?)'..

Isa pang punto, lalo lang nilang pinatitinag ang ideya na 'hindi ka maganda kung hindi ka ganito, o ganyan kaya dapat kang gumamit ng ganito at ganyan..' halimbawa na lang yung mga advertisements pinagkukumpara ang 'before' at 'after' ng retoke o paggamit ng isang produkto.. kapag 'before', inilalarawan ito ng matabang, mabilbil, at morenang babae na parang pinagsakluban ng langit at lupa..pero kapag after, todo ngiti ever na si girl na parang nabuhayan.. tsaka kapag 'before' sa case ng mga girls di ka pinapansin ng mga boys pero pag 'after', madami ng naghahabol bigla kasali na yung type mo.. Syempre alam nating lahat na 'advertisement tactics' ang mga ito, iwas pagpapauto na lang.. ahaha.. Kumbaga, ang nagiging epekto kase nito ay hindi pagiging kuntento sa sarili at pwede ring 'insecurities' lalo na kung mahina-hina ang depensa natin laban sa mga uso at sikat at sa opinyon ng ating kanya-kanyang kritiko..

Naisip ko din lang, kaalinsabay ng ebolusyon ng pagpaganda o pagpapagwapo at pagpaparetoke ay paguso din ng konsepto ng 'vain man' at 'efeminate' (mali ata baybay ko.. pasensya..).. Isa pa, nakakalungkot kase yung iba, ang laki ng ginagastos para lang 'gumanda' na parang hindi na praktikal.. 'Narerecognize' ko din naman po ang ideya ng 'self improvement' or 'enhancement' through surgeries etc pero syempre, sa mas praktikal na paraan at sa mas positibong disposisyon sa buhay.. ayun.. chorna..

para sa mga kapwa ko Pilipino:
'itaguyod ang likas na ganda at alindog ng Pilipina.. Lahat tayo ay may pagkakaiba.. ang maganda sa iba ay hindi nangangahulugan na maganda din sa 'yo.. Kaya mag-isipisip muna baka masayang lang ang natural na ganda pati na rin pera..ahaha.. ating isipin, hindi lang mapuputi, sexy ang maganda..isa pa, wala pa ding tatalo sa gandang panloob.. ahaha.. apir!'

(sori po, ang haba ng opinyon ko, 'interesting' po kase ang topic eh..)..;g

i think kailangan ang surgery ng mga tao na nabiktima ng sunog o deformed ang mukha, kung hindi naman ganun kalala ang mukha mo, makuntento ka na lang sa binigay ni God. we are beautiful in our own ways, depende na yun on how you carry yourself. nakakatakot magpa-surgery kung ang kalalabasan ay magiging kamukha ka ni michael jackson!!!

parang drugs lang yan, kapag naumpisahan, and when you liked the result, nakaka-addict na.

i've watched on Oprah that some people are obssessed about cosmetic surgery because they feel that they look so ugly when they look at the mirror... and they end up looking like monsters even though they looked good before the surgery. anong tawag sa sakit na yun?

maraming bang mga straight guys (excluding people in showbiz) na nagpupunta rin sa mga clinics such as belo?

Anonymous said...

do you tolerate people who really don't need cosmetic surgery pero namimilit parin? how do you explain it to them... na hindi pwede?

altering one's physical feature big or small, is death to his/her identity. beauty is only skin deep.

i think media plays a big role why plastic surgery flourished.they set the standard of beauty by what they show on tv and in print.there's nothing wrong with it but it has serious effects on society's norm of what is acceptable or not.beauty eventually dies,care for it but don't make it the center of concern for what it bring are all temporary.
