Plastic surgery can become the topic of conversation rather quickly at a party or any other social gathering. Interestingly some will pipe up and admit to plastic surgery procedures they have had performed while others sit quietly. Others will chime in with third-party stories as if they have no personal knowledge whatsoever. The conversation will quickly shift to the “type “of person who would have plastic surgery. Most commonly it is thought of as a person who is vain and celebrity conscious. Perhaps it is someone who is desperately trying to hold on to her youth. In many cases the conversation will soon shift to what are considered to be plastic surgery disasters. Of course, this type conversation can be lively and go on for hours. The truth of the matter is; while there are some truths to a profile of the type of person who would consider plastic surgery the reality is the person who would consider plastic surgery is just like everybody else.
