If you are reading this article, chances are you have an opinion or two about plastic surgery. You might belong to the group that deems it unnecessary, or you may see value in it. Well, whatever camp you may belong to, it is always interesting to see how different communities see and understand beauty. Cosmetic surgery, which focuses on enhancing the human body, whether for practical purposes or purposes that sharpen one’s natural attributes, is among the top opinion makers of what defines beauty.
Viviana Millan, CEO of Fajas Tributo, a popular shapewear for women, shares her thoughts on some of the diverse beauty perspectives in the modern cosmetic surgery community. Fajas Tributo has become synonymous with celebrating the diverse aspect of beauty and, with its focus on being inclusive, has helped garner a wider understanding of what beauty truly means, a feat that evades brands and companies which succumb to a rigid and standardized notion of what makes beauty beautiful. And not just that, Fajas Tributo is also the preferred name in shapewear for patients who are recovering from different kinds of plastic surgery procedures.
More than shapewear
Shapewear is generally seen as an expression of fashion and style. Its style and functionality have gained enough merit to be seen and worn as regular clothing. While that’s quite an achievement, what’s even more progressive is that shapewear is also preferred by women recovering from plastic surgery procedures. Viviana says, “Our product is inspired by the country of Columbia, which is considered one of the most prominent places for plastic surgery procedures. We have partnered with some of the leading clinics in Columbia and now also America, encouraging their patients to use fajas (girdles) as they are a symbol of diversity, inclusivity, innovation, and assisting body contouring procedures.”
After getting plastic surgery, it is crucial to use proper compression. Many people believe that the most critical part is done once they’re out of the surgery, but post-op recovery is as important as the surgery itself.
Beauty as a form of self-expression
In today’s times, the idea of physical beauty is as subjective as the person talking about it. That is a good thing because diversity allows us to understand the inherent meaning of beauty. The plastic surgery community, Viviana believes, “is slowly but surely beginning to open itself up to the idea of beauty beyond what they had known so far. They now engage with extensive dialogues with their clients because they know their work will impact their clients’ lives.”
The idea of beauty is expanding, and Viviana believes expanding knowledge will certainly lead to expanding understanding.
