Check out the new episode of Ladylike starring Kristin Chirico who explores today’s beauty standards. In a simulation of what it would be like to go under the knife, Chirico ventures into Beverly Hills with the finest of plastic surgeons Dr. Harrison Lee, Dr. Linda Li and Dr. David Amron (as seen on TMZ, Cosmopolitan, CNN and more) to understand what it takes to become “society’s model.” The surgeons recommended a battery of procedures including liposuction, jaw and cheek contouring, restylane injections, nose narrowing, bone retractions, bone cement inserts, genioplasty and more.
Kristin explores self-identity issues all have struggled with in one way or another. The results will surprise you. The full episode is live now on Ladylike’s YouTube Channel!
Highlights from this episode:
“Patients don’t come in with (pictures of) celebrity faces, but they do come in with faces of people from Instagram, from social networks they had just found that they happened to like. And I explain to them that these pictures aren’t real, they’re all photoshopped.” – Dr. Linda Li, Certified American Board of Plastic Surgery Practitioner
“Being in a plastic surgeon’s office and having them tell you all the things about your face that you’ve lived with your entire life that really need to be fixed… to view you as beautiful enough to be model is a lot. It’s a lot emotionally to do it once, and I did it three times” – Kristin Chirico
