This picture was taken on my 21st birthday, OBVIOUSLY without me knowing. I see pictures like this and am SO thankful every day to have gotten the surgery. It really tore down my self esteem to know this is the way I looked to other people. I know it's not all about looks, but really, it's hard to feel good about yourself without thinking you LOOK good. and uh, this picture is not good. haha

    Hi Dani!
    I am glad you are happy to have your surgery completed! I think your picture looks great, but I do understand how our esteem does get impacted by profile pictures.
    You are amazing!

    I'm totally in agreement on this one with you. You DO look beautiful in this, but if you're anything like me all you can do is cringe when you see profile shots of yourself. It is embarrassing and uncomfortable. I honestly hated to think of people seeing me like this so I totally understand where you're coming from. You look awesome though and you look even more awesome post-op. I'm glad you're happy with your results :)
