OMG! I was watching GMA this morning and they had this story about a woman who injected her face with silicone that she bought on the internet. She is now scarred for life and has to have multiple surgeries to take care of the scarring.
The story goes that she'd gone in before for silicone injections to a plastic surgeon to have the "fine" lines smoothed out on her face. Then she got to the point where she couldn't afford the $1000 per treatment anymore. She looked on the internet and purchased needles and silicone and thought she could do it herself. She said she had seen the doctor do it so often, that she was sure she knew what she was doing. Turns out that what she bought wasn't surgical grade silicone, but instead personal lubricant.
The report went on to say that hundreds of people do this to themselves all the time.
It makes me sad that our society is so screwed up that we can't see the beauty within. I'm no beauty.. HELL!! I'm not even what you might call cute or pretty or even good looking. I'm overweight, have crooked teeth and I hate my hair, but I've learned to live with myself. Now granted if I had millions of dollars to throw away .. I might consider plastic surgery by a professional who had referrals running out his/her a** but I damn sure AM NOT going to do it myself!
Seriously? Would you?
