The Plastic Surgery Debate

Average: 4 (23 votes)

All over the world, people are using plastic surgery to change their body and make themselves ‘more beautiful’.

In days you can do anything from lose a few inches around your hips to completely changing your face. The only thing putting people off at the moment, is the possibility of complications and the fact that they will have to undergo surgery, sometimes major surgery. Now, a new treatment claims that it can create the exact same results as liposuction, a fat removal surgery, without any cuts or incisions.

What are your views on changing your body in this way? Personally, I could never consider it because I am not a fan of needles or hospitals! I think it’s a bit scary that people are willing to spend so much money on something that a diet and regular exercise could solve.

Watch this video about the new treatment and then see if you can answer the true or false questions below. Then let us know your opinions on the subject!
