These are the words that came out of my mouth when I walked home from an event last night — and it was very true. What’s also true is that I wanted to touch all those fake lips to see how they felt. Were they soft and supple? Or rock hard and without an ability to even feel my index finger probing them? I also wondered if, perhaps, if I had injected my own lips I would have fit in much better, because frankly, I felt like an outcast. OK, that’s a slight lie. My lips may be thin, but lip injections are just not my thing. A nose job, on the other hand…

I will never condemn plastic surgery. I feel for many, both men and women, it’s an essential part of feeling less insecure about their imperfect parts. I realize not everyone can come to terms with their physical flaws, so if plastic surgery is your thing, then let’s high-five and I’ll take you out for cupcakes afterward. However, some people take it to an extreme, or even worse, ruin an already beautiful face because of it — and that is the real tragedy of it all. Did my BFF (in my head anyway) Lindsay Lohan need lip injections? Hell no. Did any of the following women? No fucking way. But they went for it and the aftermath was less than pretty.
