Today, plastic surgery is nearly commonplace. Plastic surgery enables people to dramatically change their appearance to suit their tastes. We see it everywhere: famous Hollywood actors, models, and other celebrities getting procedures done, and even glamorous makeover programs on television. Getting a nose job, breast augmentation, liposuction, or any other procedure done is as easy as a visit with a plastic surgeon.

Have you ever thought about plastic surgery? Have you ever undergone a procedure to change your appearance in any way?

Feel free to write your experiences the way you wish. You can use your own ideas, or use the questions below as a guide. In the event you use a question, you should only answer that question. You may also answer several questions in separate entries and allow us to choose the best one for the book. Whatever your preference, only a maximum of 2,000 characters will be published.
