Did Reid Ewing of Modern Family Go For Cosmetic Surgery?
It has been reported in DailyMail UK that Reid Ewing suffers from body dysmorphia. The condition causes him to be obsessed with achieving the perfect face using plastic surgery procedures.
In his pursuit to look like Brad Pitt, he wrote that “I genuinely believed if I had one procedure I dould suddenly look like Brad Pitt”.
He related that he had one failed procedure after another. And he said that the plastic surgeons did not really care about his desire to change his appearance.
‘I told the doctor why I felt my face needed cosmetic surgery and told him I was an actor. He agreed that for my career it would be necessary to get cosmetic surgery,’ wrote Ewing in a confessional piece for the Huffington Post.
‘He quickly determined that large cheek implants would address the issues I had with my face, and a few weeks later I was on the operating table.
But right now he has expressed regrets over the plastic surgery. He said it was painful to go through the surgeries.
Reid Ewing Wants the Public to Know the Risks of Plastic Surgeries
And he now wants the public to know that plastic surgery has risks, which can include addiction to painkillers. Also there might be the need of future additional painful corrective surgeries due to mistakes and botched jobs.
Reid Ewing’s plastic surgeries included cheek and chin implants. He said that both the surgeries left him in deep pain and trapped in isolation.
Reid Feels its a Psychological Addiction
None of the plastic surgeons related to him that he looked alright. They did overlooked his psychological condition and operated on him anyway, though conunselling could have been a better option.
But now, as reported in the Daily Mail, Reid Ewing plastic surgeries have been put to a halt as he realises that he look ok after all. And he encourages all who have an addiction to plastic surgery to seek the help of a psychologist instead of a plastic surgeon.
