Do those words sound familiar? You were young, having fun, and just wanted to show your unique style. But now, no one will hire you. The competition for jobs is great and whether it is fair or not, employers do judge competencies on appearance.

However, despite the desired benefits, some people are afraid that plastic surgery will drastically alter their appearance. Instead of looking like themselves – only better – they’re afraid they will look pulled and stretched into some bizarre caricature of themselves.

Many people were shocked last year when The Hills actress Heidi Montag admitted to having 10 cosmetic surgery procedures in one day. However, Heidi’s extreme body makeover seems like nothing compared to the 52 cosmetic surgery procedures that 55-year-old Cindy Jackson has undergone to improve her appearance. The Ohio woman, who has lived in London since the 1970s, holds the Guinness World Record for most cosmetic surgeries. She has undergone 14 full-scale plastic surgeries and dozens of other procedures including 5 face lifts, liposuction, 2 eyelid surgeries, Botox and cosmetic surgeries to her breasts, buttocks, hands, knees, stomach, legs, cheeks, ears and nose. By her own admission, Cindy has little flesh left that hasn’t been modified by plastic surgery.

She said life with a critical father and a derogatory comment made by a boy when she was 14 sparked her desire to change her appearance. “It was like being in the wrong body and wrong face, and I felt that very much and wanted to change it,” she told ABC in discussing her reasons for undergoing so many cosmetic surgeries.

Unfortunately, Cleveland cosmetic surgeons and top government medical officers warn, you get what you pay for. Cosmetic surgery bargain hunters could wind up paying for cheap overseas surgery with their lives.
