According to The New York Post, the “hot” new way for divorcees to get back at their ex-husbands is by getting “revenge surgery” — plastic surgery that gives women back the years they “lost” while married. Buying a new face and/or body is supposedly helping some women get out of their post-divorce slump. Alicia Hunter (her before and after is pictured above) felt like there was “no reason to be in Dumpyland,” so she took a trip to Botoxville and Boobtown. And now she loves the way she looks in a bikini! Another divorcee, Maria Sheffield, thinks her full body liposuction changed her whole outlook on life:
“My ex-husband even told me I look great. He took my power away, and this gave it back. Now I’m in a relationship with a man I met on a business trip … [My ex-husband] deserved to partially pay for me to look good — I feel I earned it … There was a certain satisfaction in his seeing me look like this, especially when he saw me with my new boyfriend.”
Wow! Plastic surgery really is a quick fix for problems. Speaking of revenge surgery, is that what happened to Tamra Barney from “The Real Housewives of Orange County“? Her face is looking scary. If I do end up a divorcee — I suppose I’d have to get married first for that to happen — I think I’ll pass on going under the knife and focus on natural self-esteem building instead.
So what do you think? Does it make sense to get plastic surgery as revenge on an ex? [NY Post]
