LL: I’m all for men and women choosing to do what makes them feel good, so while I didn’t explicitly say it in my essay, I think cosmetic surgery can be empowering. I just don’t want anyone to feel pressured into it (e.g., the woman whose boyfriend tells her he’ll pay for it because she’d look so much hotter with butt implants). I haven’t ruled it out for myself one day (bad eye bags are apparently in my genes!). We’ll see how I feel about them.
