The Price of Beauty
Since Fred and I have been watching Nip/Tuck on dvd and Heidi Montag just admitted that she's addicted to plastic surgery, I thought I'd touch on the subject of plastic surgery.
First off, I do not see anything wrong with plastic surgery if you want to reconstruct or enhance yourself, especially when you're older. I don't think I could ever do it, but I don't judge people who do. Well, maybe I won't want to look at ALL of my wrinkles at 75, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. :) I'd love to have the "quick fix" of lipo, but I think it's better for me if I work it off and try to eat better!
It is just so sad that these 20-somethings are going in and getting all of this work done and completely changing the way they look. Heidi was a beautiful girl. Now, she just looks, well, plastic. It's really sad. And to be "addicted" at such a young age (23) is not a good thing. Well, at least I don't think it is. She had 10 procedures in 1 day. That can't be good for your body and the recovery must be horrific!
According to Fox News, she has had: a nose job revision, chin reduction, mini brow lift, Botox in her forehead and frown area, fat injections in her cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips, neck liposuction, ear pinning, liposuction on her waist, hips, inner and outer thighs, buttock augmentation and breast augmentation revision.
What?! She is a stick and she got liposuction. So, ladies all of this hard work that we've been spending at the gym or at home doing our "Shred" to get bodies like her's might not get us that Heidi Montag body because her's is fake. In order to have Heidi's body, we too need to go and have plastic surgery. I wonder how many other coveted celebrity bodies are fake?
Do you think she's gone too far? Would you consider this?
