Earlier this week, Heidi Montag from The Hills stirred up quite a buzz with her new face and body on the cover of People magazine. The plastic surgery addict confessed she underwent ten procedures – buttocks augmentation, boob job touch-up, nose job touch-up, chin reduction, mini brow lift, Botox, fat injections in her cheeks and lips, pinning back of her ears, liposuction in her neck, waist and thighs – in one day in order to become “the best me”.
Heidi prior to her second surgery and now
Personally, I think Heidi looked a lot better before. There’s something off about her new nose and that brow lift kind of creeps me out. But the more important issue here is the message behind all this. Openly advocating plastic surgery is NOT cool! Everyone is beautiful in their own ways and we should all learn to embrace what we are born with. Not to mention, we all know beauty is not skin deep. Below is a quote from Audrey Hepburn that I really like:
For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
Walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things,
Have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed,
And redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
You will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
So what is your take on Heidi’s new look or just plastic surgery in general? Spill!
