I have always believed in doing what makes you happy. For instance, if you have an insecurity and it truly affects your happiness, then take control of it and do something about it! Some of y’all have watched me grow up over the past 7 years on this platform and I have always strived to keep it real and be my unapologetic self. You have seen the ups and downs, my workout and health journey and all the embarrassing raw moments in between. During quarantine I had a lot of time to think and self reflect. I feel capable of standing confidently in my own shoes and owning it. However, no one is perfect and I still have insecurities. So I decided I wanted to do something about it. That’s when I came across Dr. Shahar who is famously known for his natural enhancing procedures in Manhattan.  I have always been a bit self conscious of my jawline (or should I say lack thereof) and my under eye bags. Admittedly, why I normally wear sunglasses and rarely take any side profile pictures… unless I catch the perfect angle. But this is something that has caused me daily stress and self doubt– no guasha, firming creams, etc could fix this. (If you feel my pain, I want you to know it’s not you! These problem areas are predominantly hereditary and extremely common) But remember, you are beautiful no matter what. I just wanted to do this for myself, so I started the research process and searched for the most reputable doctor in NYC. I wanted someone who could help me achieve my most NATURAL goals.

Talking about cosmetic procedures can seem taboo, like something people should hide but I am doing this for myself and there’s nothing shameful about that. I know who I am at my core, I take care of myself from the inside out and this procedure has already completely changed my confidence level– that’s what matters. So with that said, I want to talk more about Dr. Shahar and why I trusted him.

Dr. Shahar is famously known for his natural enhancing procedures in Manhattan– truly the best of the best! What patients respect most about Dr. Shahar’s is that he has their best interests at heart. He will refuse to perform cosmetic procedures if he believes it’s unnecessary. As a result, his creative proficiency has been sought after by some of the most prominent people both nationally and internationally.

Secondly, Dr. Shahar’s artistic finesse and expert technique creates natural looking results without changing you. Everyone will notice an improvement, but no one will know. Thirdly, he never over corrects and always recommends the most minimal procedure to achieve the utmost natural looking results. Which was my biggest concern. Dr. Shahar also does injectables and non-surgical treatments to make you look like your best natural self!

So let’s talk about what he and I decided was best for me and how it went down! I went into my free consultation at the Natural Look Institute offices on Park Ave where I met with Dr. Shahar. During my free consultation, he evaluated my face and we discussed my personal concerns, we then came up with a simple and natural looking solution! We decided it would be best to reduce the fat in my jawline/chin area by using some local anesthesia and inject a tiny amount of natural filler (aka my own fat taken from either your tummy or thigh) into areas that fell a little flat (right under my eyes and upper cheek). This corrects the disproportion of facial features to bring balance and harmony to the face. It is a totally safe procedure with no side effects and no down-time. Its effect lasts for years! So after our consultation we set a date to make my dreams come true 🙂 

This all may sound foreign or scary to you but I am telling you… it was nothing and I was in-and-out  in an hour the day of my procedure. Dr. Shahar made me feel so comfortable, normally I get a little nervous around needles but he had me laughing and feeling very relaxed. It’s been less than 3 days and I am only experiencing slight swelling but nothing dramatic or noticeable. I feel totally comfortable going about my business as usual! Dr. Shahar has called/texted me personally every day since my procedure to check in and see how I am doing– I feel like this is important to note because it truly speaks to the personal interest he takes in each of his patients. I really felt like he listened to my concerns and was invested in helping resolve them. He is willing to go the extra mile to insure the best care of all his patients. He really makes you feel so comfortable before and after your procedure. 

So let’s get to the good stuff (photos of before and after arecoming soon– just need to wait for the little bit of swelling under my chin to settle)! For everything to take full effect it can take up to 4-6 weeks but I was out of the house back to normally scheduled programming in less than 2 days (the swelling was mostly because of the fat reduction in my chin but there was no visible bruising in the front of my face).  But I couldn’t be happier with the results– already! I feel like sharing this stepping stone to a road of confidence with you all is so important. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin and no one should be shamed or feel embarrassed with the path they take there. So here I am putting it all out on the internet for you! So you and whoever else needs to hear this knows they’re not alone! You are beautiful as you are but this is something I wanted to do for myself. I will keep you updated over on IG  and TikTok so be sure you are following along 🙂  Like I mentioned before, y’all have watched me grow over the years and I have always been honest. So take my word for it when I say, do what makes you happy, do it for yourself and no one else. I can’t recommend Dr. Shahar at the Natural Look Institute enough to y’all for facial rejuvenation– even just for injectables. His work is so natural and conservative. I will definitely be visiting him again in the future. You can find all the info for Dr. Shahar below! XX
