I’m no fan of cosmetic surgery and would prefer that people deal with their lack of acceptance of their looks or aging processes by feeling their feelings, and maybe even talking themselves into a bit more self acceptance. But obviously it’s personal decision and none of my business.
However, I do think it is perfectly reasonable to ask why Louise Hay — who has made millions teaching that even leprosy can be cured with positive thinking — should decide to get a face lift. Can cure leprosy; can’t get rid of — or even learn to accept — a few wrinkles!
Louise Hay, cosmetic surgery advocate
Louise Hay looks okay for her age and probably always did. But the stretched lips, splayed cheek lines and garishly contourless skin give away the fact that she has had a face lift. Probably multiple face lifts, from the looks of it. Louise made the choice to go under the knife because she didn’t believe that repeating a few words like
I love and accept my body and its aging processes
would lead to to a state of mind where she could live with herself as she is.
Ms Hay has made millions selling people the idea that positive thinking can cure every single illness there is, without so much as an asprin, to say nothing of surgical procedures. Yet when faced with simple straight forward issue that really can be effectively dealt with by muttering at oneself a bit, she instantly capitulated.
