SheFinds News: Do-It-Yourself Plastic Surgery

April 13, 2007 by SheFindsTara

There are some things you really shouldn’t do — like bleach your hair at home. I’ll attest to that. While my bout with lightener wasn’t life-threatening, it turns out that many women are taking serious procedures into their own hands, like using sandpaper as a microdermabrasion treatment and, unbelievably, injecting saline to boost their breast implants. Personally, I’d rather just use my DERMAdoctor Physical Chemistry or some fatgirlslim rather than play doctor on myself.

Dr. Miller, a plastic surgeon from San Diego, warns women about the complications of taking the knife into their own hands: “Not only are you not likely to look good, but you can do yourself some serious long term damage or even risk your life.” He has been getting a lot of business lately, not from those in need of their first nose job or liposuction, but from those in need of repairs from their own DIY mishaps. He says “It cost the patient much more, both financially and emotionally, to fix things than it would have to do it right the first time.”

Clearly this is a scary trend that we hope none of our readers succumb to. When in doubt — go to a pro. Or consider these non-surgical fixer-uppers that don’t require any slicing or dicing to improve your appearance.
