Now that that’s out of the way…It’s not a secret that we’re inundated daily with images of perfect bodies and flawless faces in the media. Some people try to achieve the same look with makeup and by working out and eating healthy foods. Others go the extreme route and opt for plastic surgery.

There are obviously varying degrees of cosmetic surgery. In the last decade, fillers and injectibles have become pretty mainstream as has CoolSculpting and liposuction. Even breast augmentation surgery has become a standard procedure. While these operations and procedures are still pricey, they aren’t nearly as expensive as they once were.

Sadly, the need for a perfect appearance has driven some people to the point of becoming obsessed with achieving their goal. Regardless of how many times they’re told a celebrity or model is being Photoshopped and airbrushed in the ads they see, they live in denial and continue to strive for these unrealistic expectations. In some cases, the person chooses to have plastic surgery performed by someone unqualified or unlicensed because that’s what they can afford.

In other cases, a small minority is going down a very dangerous path and performing these procedures on themselves. In fact, people have died after injecting cooking oil and other household goods into their bodies to get a plumper rear end or bigger muscles. This should go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: Don’t do that. A video has surfaced which is believed to have taken place in China. It shows a woman performing a facelift on herself.
