I cannot possibly count the number of times that I have heard my patients exclaim in a moment of guilt-ridden revelation: “My mother told me she had it all her life and I should be able to handle it too.” Well there are many proven surgical and medical treatments and why should we not take advantage of them and improve our lives. You no longer have to suffer with spider veins, facial acne, heavy breasts, folds of skin rashes, baldness, deformed noses, etc. just because the previous generation did. We no longer wash our clothes by the river, cook over open fires, and send drum messages. Its OK to improve our selves and our lives. Every generation has.
