Thus, here are 6 Insights About Nose Jobs and Conceptions of Beauty to Take Away from Iggy Azalea’s Interview with Seventeen:
1. Don’t be ashamed of acknowledge change.
“I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I’ve spoken about the changes I’ve made, like with my breasts.”
2. …But don’t rush into permanent alterations.
“Your perception of yourself can change a lot over time, so I think it’s important to wait and make sure it’s the right choice.”
3. The repercussions of plastic surgery go beyond the surface.
“It’s no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself — and it’s no easy feat to change yourself. Either way you look at it, it’s a tough journey. There are things that I didn’t like about myself that I changed through surgery. There are other things I dislike but I’ve learned to accept.”
4. Do your research before you decide.
“I read a lot about nose jobs online. Some women are really happy they got them, and some women changed their noses when they were younger, and when they got older they wished they didn’t.”
5. Perfection is unattainable.
“It’s important to remember you can’t change everything. You can never be perfect.”
6. Don’t give into the pressure of social media’s visions of beauty.
“It’s hard to be a woman in 2015 with social media. There’s so much more emphasis on taking pictures of ourselves and the ‘likes’ or people commenting on them. There’s a lot more pressure to look beautiful. Some days I just want to look like sh-t and feel okay with that.”
