I read somewhere that you get the face you deserve and Dr. Stass reiterates this when she says that in all the photos she examined, while the surface physiology might have changed (lines smoothed, sagging lifted, and wrinkles plumped), the persons' expressions did not. If the person's expression was sad, anxious or depressed before the surgery or procedure, the sadness, anxiety or depression still came through after the procedure. And - this is the important bit - it’s a person’s expression that we react to in order to determine whether or not they are truly beautiful. If they can’t make any authentic expressions at all (think over Botoxed) we don’t know what to make of them.
The balance of the book examines beauty as an expression of the person you have become – your experiences lived, wisdom gained, love given and received) and reveals ways to maximize your authentic beauty from the inside and only then moving to the outside. I learned a lot from this quick, insightful read and I don’t hesitate to recommend it. This book is also available as an ebook on Amazon.
