The Fitnessista Podcast: Healthy In Real Life

Sep 25, 2019

In today’s episode, I’m chatting with my BFF Betsy Kleiger from Flab but Fab all about plastic surgery. We don’t hold anything back, and talk about breast augmentation, lipo, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, breast explants, and answer your questions from Instagram.

It’s a juicy episode and I hope you love this one!

Episode 42 podcast all about plastic surgery

Here’s what we talk about:

- Why plastic surgery isn’t for everyone

- Our experiences with plastic surgery

- How to find a great surgeon

- Weird things that have happened

- Non-permanent options, like Botox

- Recovery tips

and so. much. more. 

A note:

It’s important to be in a good mental space before you get any type of plastic surgery. Know that getting a physical attribution “fixed” isn’t going to fix any insecurities, turmoil, or heal any grief you may be experiencing. I also fully believe that you can be at a place where you love yourself, love your body, but still have some things you’d like to change or fix. They don’t have to be mutually exclusive. We both have a “you do you” attitude when it comes to plastic surgery, so I hope you listen to this one with an open mind.

I’m sharing an episode about plastic surgery because it’s a very popular option for aesthetic and functional purposes. I wanted to share our experiences and also give tips for picking an awesome, safe surgeon and recovering in a safe way. Also, I have to admit that it was super fun to gab with my best friend for a while. ;) (You’ll be able to see why we complement each other so well. We’re opposites but in the best way.)

A little bit about Betsy if you haven’t met her yet:

I’m a busy mom of two crazy, adorable boys. I am a mom of an ADHD/ Anxious child, which in itself constantly presents me with unique curve balls! I work hard everyday to fight my own anxiety and body acceptance issues, while striving to be the best mom, friend, wife, version as me possible. My intention with my blog is to give you 100% real Betsy, the good the bad, the flab, and the fab. And in turn, you can give yourself 100% realness too. Because, honey, it is OK to be exactly who you are! My mission is to build a safe community for all of us women to live our truth even if it’s not always pretty!
