The phrase Resting Bitch Face has only been a thing for around 15 years (according to Resting Bitch Face historians), but Bette Davis and Joan Crawford served this face decades beforehand, and the old-timey likes of Richard II have long been serving bitch face. So it’s a mystery to me why people are trying to GET RID of such a gift. Sad as it is, it’s reportedly happening, as women are now having plastic surgery specifically to get rid of their Resting Bitch Face.
People are supposedly spending thousands of dollars to get a bunch of poison and fillers in their face so they can look more “approachable.” This is what happens you listen jerk-offs yelling, “Smile more!”
According to The New York Post
To achieve the look doctors use techniques such as the injection of fillers into the face and sometimes Botox, medical experts said. The procedure takes about 10 to 20 minutes, costs between $500-5,000, with top docs, depending on the number of shots. It and typically lasts up to two years.
Although the term RBF entered the cultural lexicon about six years ago, requests for the procedure “more than doubled” over the last year, says Shafer.
It’s because of a public shift in focus from the upper to lower face — “popularized by the Kardashians,” he says, and their affinity for lip injections.
He says selfies are also a factor: They force people to “look down at their phone, [which] accentuates the resting bitch face.”
Resting Bitch Face is a compliment to me. If someone told me I looked unapproachable, I would say, “Thank you, that’s EXACTLY the look I was going for.” And sadly, I don’t have RBF but husband sure does. Half the time I’m convinced he has a murder plot brewing in his dark mind, but it turns out he’s just deciding what bagel to order.
“People gravitate to women who they perceive as happy,” she says.
Doft said she injects fillers into their marionette lines — from the lip’s corners to the jawline — and underneath their lips to plump and re-angle their mouths.
The needles contain hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvéderm Vollure, which combines with water and expands into a gel that helps replace lost volume, replace lost volume contour the soft tissue and support the lips.
It helps “make [patients] look less sad” she said.
Welp, thank god there’s a cure for women looking sad! We can’t have that! Feminism, you silly devil, you tried it but Gloria Steinem can pack her bags and move into the Patriarchy (which doubles as a Dave & Busters at Mar-A-Lago) because feminism has officially taken a left turn!
That said, hopefully this phase will die quickly and in a few years women will be getting the opposite surgery and do their best to look as mean as possible. Sign me up when that happens!
