Okay so I’m 29 and have 2 noticeable frown lines in between eyebrows. I’ve had people asked me if I’m angry, and I’m not, I think my frown lines make me look angry. Plus I hated how I looked in pictures so didn’t want to come out looking angry in my wedding pictures.
Anyway Bridal Expo was offering promotions so 2 months before my wedding I decided to get botox. Just miminmal dosage to eliminate frown line but not completely where I’m frozen forehead. Didn’t tell anyone, not even my Fiance. Didn’t see the big deal. Weeks later, results were fantastic. Couldn’t even tell I had it done and I came out great in my wedding pictures. Now months past, it wore off and I want to do it again.
So I told my hubby thinking no big deal and OMG, he freaked!!! He acted like I cheated on him or something. Kept going on and on…..on how how I don’t need it and it’s bad for me. I tried to explain it was for picture purposes, one time only and it wasn’t alot. He flipped, asked me to never do it again. Is it just me or is he is overreacting?

I guess it depends on how one sees botox. I get from your post that you see it in the same way as getting your nails done, whereas he sees it like a medical/dental procedure.
From your photo, I really don’t think you need botox. But if you want to continue to have it I do think it’s something you should discuss with you Darling Husband, the results of botox are addictive and it can become expensive (wanting more each time). Depending on how you work your finances, it’s his money too.

Is that you in your photo? You look like megan fox (I mean that as a high compliment)!
i’m sorry your hubby had a reaction like that. I want to get a nosejob before my wedding and I’ve spent many a sleepless night wandering how I could get away with it without having the Fiance know because he would freak out. I don’t know what it is with men and cosmetic procedures…

@SamanthaLovesJames: Pretty sure she’s posting the photo as a joke. 😉 .. I hope.
but I think he’s over-reacting, why beat a dead horse? You already got it gone, theres no going back now or even arguing about it. You can’t change the fact that you got it so he should just deal. You probably should of told him that you were getting it done just like I’m sure you would want him to tell you but he didn’t notice the difference either way so I don’t see the big deal.

All Megan Fox comments aside, I think this is something you should have discussed with your partner beforehand. He may not fully understand what botox is or how it works (I used to think it was on the same level as full-on plastic surgery). He might be worried at the thought of the woman he loves trying to change how she looks, not to mention the fact that it shows you’re not happy with yourself and he may not have been aware of this (guys usually don’t realise women criticise their appearance!).
I think just talk with him about what exactly the process involves and why you did it, and acknowlege what he’s feeling about it. He’s clearly upset by this, so try and figure out why so you can address his concerns in a kind way 🙂

I totally get why he freaked.
Normally I don’t think it’s anyone’s business what you do with your body but i dont like something about this.

Yeah, sorry, I agree with your Darling Husband. This isn’t something you should have done without him knowing. For picture purposes, (I mean, they are your wedding photos, you want to look AWESOME!), I can understand maybe doing it, even if he disagreed, but he should have been made aware of it before you did it. And it obviously wasn’t one-time only, because you said yourself that now that it’s worn off, you want to do it again.

Um, yeah. you’re contradicting yourself. You didn’t lie to him, but you hid something from him. Something that obviously, to him, is a big deal. I hope you both figure this out. And honestly, my opinion on Botox is it’s unnatural=not good. Especially, you’re so young!!

@Miss Apricot: Why should HE be consulted about what SHE does with HER body? I think the OP was not in the wrong to have it done if she used her money.
OP, I’d never get botox but if you can afford it I don’t see why it’s any of his business.

It is not that big of a deal. I don’t ask for permission to make purchases with my own money, neither should you. Botox is temporary. It is not like you are going under the knife. Would he rather you spend money on something that you like that is effective, or on BS anti aging skin care creams?

I don’t see the big deal at all, it’s your body!
