Mouths and voluminous breasts, too refined noses … Gone are the days when women were victims of the choices of their youth. From now on, surgeons strive to fix the mistakes of the past.
Operational acts that evolve badly, techniques that have become obsolete, passing fads … LThere are many reasons to reconsider decisions about cosmetic medicine or surgery. And a new clientele is emerging in search of “degrowth”. In his Paris office, Marc Divaris, a plastic surgeon who works at the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital, observes: ” It is not uncommon for women in their fifties to ask me to have their breast implants removed or to have smaller ones. First, because the heavy implants caused the chest to sag; also because a lower cup slims the silhouette. “ A 90 D 30 years ago immediately “mom” over 45 years old. From child to matron … the effect is no longer the same. The passing of the years invites to elegance and … to self-acceptance.
We are in 2017 when, in an editorial for rowing, Victoria Beckham addresses the girl she was : ” Dear Victoria, I know you are in pain right now.

Those who got a facelift too early when they were round, then those who lost weight want us to rebalance everything. For us French we talked about “French touch” who were the first to practice a reasonable dosage of cosmetic surgery. Today it is a norm, no one wants what is too visible, except perhaps an active minority of influencers. “
