Over eggs and coffee at a girly brunch this weekend, one of my pals confessed that the asymmetry of her face made her feel less beautiful. She went to see a doctor who told her about a surgery that could modify and balance out her jaw structure, but it would result in a three-week recovery period. She opted out of the procedure, but has compensated for her "flaw" by only being photographed on the left side of her face, by using makeup to contour her jaw, and by accentuating her eyes (her favorite feature).
This conversation, plus the news that SJP had her famous mole removed got me thinking more and more about my own so-called imperfections. It also got me thinking about the parts of my face that I feel are the most distinguishing. Do you ever obsess about the way you look, or do you love yourself as you are?
