I’m a 19-year-old girl, and my friends (lovingly) give me crap for being “plastic.”
I was born with a lazy eye and was bullied a lot and it really affected my confidence. I hated having my photo taken and thought I looked like a freak. When I was 12 years old, I had cosmetic surgery to have my eye straightened.
(Editor’s note: Paris Hilton is a famous celebrity who is known to have a lazy eye).
I also was blessed with my father’s teeth. My front two teeth were large and had a massive gap in between them. I never, ever smiled with my mouth open, and when I laughed I would cover my mouth with my hands. When I was fourteen I had acrylics put on my teeth to make them more even and less gap-toothed, on the top and bottom. (Interesting note, the guy who did my teeth worked on Extreme Makeover Australia).
After I had my teeth done, the dentist said to me, “give me a big smile.” I immediately obliged and my mother burst into tears. The doctor asked her why, and she said, “I didn’t know her cheekbones did that because I’ve never seen her smile so big.”
Fixing my teeth made my confidence skyrocket, as did having my eyes fixed.
If money was no issue, I would get plastic surgery: a boob lift, and maybe liposuction because I hate going to the gym.
Tell me, Lovelies: Do you think plastic surgery is ever necessary? If money was no issue would you get plastic surgery? What would you fix or alter?
