Rich People Who Turned Themselves Into Plastic
How to Compliment Someone Who Had Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is a common procedure in our day and age. Many women and men get plastic surgery done on their faces, their stomachs, and other parts of their bodies to improve their appearance and look more youthful. If you know someone who has had plastic surgery done, you may wonder how you can compliment them respectfully and tactfully. Try using an indirect compliment if you’d like to be more subtle. You can also cautiously compliment someone directly or choose not to compliment them at all.
Using an Indirect Compliment
Say something positive about their general appearance.If you’re worried about offending or upsetting the person, use an indirect compliment instead. Rather than pinpoint a specific body part or area where you think they have had work done, say something positive about their appearance as a whole. Focusing on their general appearance will allow you to compliment them without embarrassing them or putting them on the spot.
- For example, you may say, “You look great!” or “You are so glowing and vibrant today!”
Compliment them by referring to a vacation or recent time off.If the person recently went on vacation or took time off, you may focus on that as part of the compliment. This way, the person can give out details as they see fit.
- For example, you may say, “You look so refreshed from your vacation!” or “How are your vacation? Looks like you got some much needed relaxation time.”
Focus on their outfit or their sense of style.Another way to indirectly compliment the person is to focus on their outfit or their overall sense of style. This way, you are complimenting them as a whole, rather than focusing on their plastic surgery.
- For example, you may say, "Love your look today!" or "You are looking so put together and confident today!"
Wait for the person to explain their surgery, if they want to.Once you have given the indirect compliment, allow the person to expand on their recent plastic surgery, if they want to. Leave the conversation open to talking about their plastic surgery. Do not pressure them or make them feel they have to tell you more.
- This may be a good option if you are broaching the subject with someone you do not know well, such as a co-worker or an acquaintance at school. You do not want the person to feel pressured or put on the spot by your compliment.
Drop the subject if they do not respond.If the person appears uncomfortable and is not responsive to your compliment, let it go. Do not try to pursue the conversation or discuss the subject any further. This will only make the person feel more uncomfortable and put you in an awkward position. Instead, apologize to the person for causing them discomfort and move on.
- Change the subject to something safe, such as a project you are working on at work or an assignment for school. Pick a topic that you know the person will relate to and enjoy talking about more than their plastic surgery.
- For example, you may say, “Sorry if my compliment put you on the spot. How’s your day going?” or “Apologies if I made you uncomfortable. Have you completed the assignment for class today?”
Deciding Whether or Not to Say Something
Weigh your relationship with the person.Before you compliment the person directly on their plastic surgery, or at all, you may want to consider your relationship to them. Are they good friends of yours? A family member? An acquaintance? If you know the person well, you may feel more comfortable complimenting the person on their plastic surgery directly. If you know them in passing or on a more casual level, complimenting them may not be appropriate or comfortable for either of you.
- Consider your comfort level around the person as well as how well you know them. If you think they may be offended by a compliment about their plastic surgery, you may opt to not say anything. If you feel they might appreciate the compliment, you may decide to say something.
Decide if a compliment is appropriate.Once you have weighed your relationship with the person, you can decide if a compliment about their plastic surgery is appropriate. Thinking long and hard about your relationship with the person may help you decide that giving them a compliment about their plastic surgery will not offend them.
- You can try giving the person an indirect compliment that addresses their general appearance, such as "You are looking great today!" or "You look amazing."
Accept if the person does not respond to your compliment.Not everyone will appreciate a direct compliment, no matter how nicely worded it is. Be okay with someone reacting negatively to your direct compliment, especially if they want to keep their plastic surgery secret. Do not expect the person to respond in kind, especially if you do not know them well and they seem to want to hide their plastic surgery.
- Be prepared for a snappy comeback from the person if they do not appreciate your compliment.
Apologize if they appear offended or uncomfortable.If the person appears upset or uncomfortable by your compliment, apologize. Say "I'm sorry" or "I apologize if my compliment offended you." Apologize as soon as you realize they are upset or offended. Be sincere when you apologize. Make eye contact with them and speak clearly.
- The person may be so offended, they do not respond or acknowledge your apology. Be okay with this. Let the person know you would be willing to make it up to them in some way. Then, move on from the issue. It may take them time to accept your apology.
Follow the don’t ask, don’t tell rule.If your indirect compliment ended up offending or upsetting the person, you may want to follow the don’t ask, don’t tell rule in the future. Some people do not want their plastic surgery to be obvious or commented on by others. Even if you notice someone has gotten work done, don’t ask unless they instigate the conversation.
- Often, people who are comfortable discussing their plastic surgery will bring it up first. Waiting for the person to tell you about their surgery can make it more comfortable for you to compliment them and talk about their plastic surgery with them in more detail.
