My Grandmother used to joke all the time by saying, "What would we look like if we could make ourselves?" She always proclaimed that only God can make a tree and people should never alter their God given features to achieve a certain look. Now, more than ever, plastic surgery has reached astonishing heights and the rates at which people are going under the knife don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Its not only for the rich nor restricted to a certain race anymore. Breast implants being the most popular form of plastic surgery are done by all races and both genders that are trying to achieve a more voluptuous and womanly figure. Booty implants are also on the rise with stars like Lil' Kim, Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian getting major attention because of their new bums.
I say if you are going to physically alter your appearance, make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. A new set of veneers or the ability to remove that large knot on the top of your nose can do wonders for one's self-esteem and in these cases, I say, go for it! However, if you are seeking "something" and choose to achieve it by plastic surgery, I think the ramifications can be dangerous. Lets go ahead and add plastic surgery to the laundry list of addictions in this country and while we're at it, take a look at the botched surgeries and the complications people experience in the aftermath. It is not a pretty sight.
Hollywood, arguably the biggest participants in the plastic surgery phenomenon, seeks perfection whether it be real or an illusion. But what is one to do when that booty implant starts sagging along with the 10 year old breasts implants? Does one get more surgery or just leave it alone altogether? That issue is a personal one, one that all will have to deal with at one point or another.
I wanted to share some before and after photos of some of the hottest chicks in the game right now and let you all be the judge as to whether you think the surgery improved their looks or not. Check out the pictorial below:
Kelly Rowland has definitely had a boob job, and possibly a little nose action...
Kim Kardashian has had a nose job, and what looks to be cheek implants. Not to mention, a boob job and booty implants.
Jada Pinkett Smith appears to have gotten cheek implants.
Serena looks like she's gotten cheek implants and/or a nose job. Not to mention some serious makeup contouring.
Keri Hilson underwent a nose job.
My question to my readers is do you think these ladies looked beautiful just the way they were?
Do you think the plastic surgery actually worked in their favor?
Are you against plastic surgery and why?
Have you ever undergone plastic surgery and if so, would you do it again?
