Miss Plastic Hungary

Miss Plastic Hungary Crowned

Beauty pageants are fairly unusual events at the best of times – young women, parading up and down, being judged on all sorts of things – it takes a special type of personality to want to be part of something like that but also to excel in that environment and win the pageant queen crown.

Much of the focus on beauty pageants is on appearance – what you look like – and obviously everyone has their little beauty secrets. But a beauty pageant in Hungary has taken this one step further and dedicated their pageant to women who have had cosmetic surgery.

The title of Miss Plastic Hungary was held in 2009 and was fiercely contested. In this article we take a look at how it all unfolded.

The requirements

The contestants all had to have had some cosmetic surgery procedures in order to qualify to enter – face lifts, breast implants, or other body work. Just a few Botox injections would not be enough to qualify you. It is a slightly odd concept to be celebrating artificial enhancements when so many sports and competitions are actively fighting to remove any artificial advantage from competitors – this is one event that actively celebrates artificial advantage and surgical procedures to boost performance.

The competition

Twenty two competitors took part in the Miss Plastic Hungary beauty pageant. The ages of the contestants ranged from 19 to 38. The format of the pageant for Miss Plastic Hungary is very similar to every other beauty pageant that you have seen – there are a number of different categories that contestants have to perform in, giving them the opportunity to display what makes them special – whether that is evening wear or a swimsuit. Also public speaking is important so they have the opportunity to speak to the audience and talk about the things that are important to them.

If you have ever dreamed of becoming a beauty pageant queen but have never thought that you were pretty enough, then this could be the competition that you have been looking for – all you need to do is get some major surgery done (but still look natural) and you will be ready to hit the catwalk and strut your stuff in the beauty pageant that celebrates surgical enhancement in every shape and size. What are you waiting for – whether it is breast enhancement, a butt lift, some silicone implants to change the shape and definition of your body, this is the competition that is perfect for you.read more info at http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/surgically-enhanced-beauty-queens-vie-for-the-miss-plastic-hungary-crown/article4279952/.

For anyone a competition win like this is a great boost to your public profile and can give you a platform on which to continue to build your career as a model or hostess or public speaking engagements.

Who said beauty was only skin deep? These beauty queens have had a lot of work done and they are proud of their surgery enhanced appearance. Surprisingly the Miss Plastic Hungary beauty pageant has only been held once.

Reconstructive surgery

Modern Acceptance of Plastic Surgery

Having plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures to enhance your appearance used to be a very big deal – something that you would try and keep secret, you would possibly go away on a long holiday until the surgery was completed and any scarring or bruising had healed. It wasn’t something that was really ever talked about, a beauty secret that everyone guessed at but was never confirmed.

However in recent years there seems to be a growing acceptance of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery as a perfectly acceptable way to maintain and improve your appearance. In this article we look at some of the ways that acceptance of plastic surgery has changed in recent years.

The role of Botox

Botox is a version of a neurotoxin known as Botulinum. One of the big game-changers in terms of the modern acceptance of plastic surgery was the discovery of the cosmetic effect of Botox on wrinkles. The cosmetic benefits were first documented in 1989 and formal trials were completed in 2002 with FDA regulatory approval being granted in the United States when it had been proven that injections of Botox could temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows.

Since then, the use of Botox has become extraordinarily widespread and the global Botox market is forecast to reach around USD$2.9 billion by 2018. Botox is now widely available from a range of health practitioners and can even be applied at home, with reports that people regularly host Botox parties for their friends.

The power of celebrities

One of the key drivers of the modern acceptance of plastic surgery is the increasing willingness of celebrities and public figures to talk about their cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery that they have had done. With high definition cameras and movies being shot in 3D there is really no where to hide when it comes to having your face (and all its flaws) projected on the big silver screen.

Once celebrities started talking about their plastic surgery successes (and failures) it became a lot more publicly acceptable for everyday people to take similar steps to also maintain and enhance their appearance.go to http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/542448_2 for more detailed information.

Men want to look good too

Reconstructive surgery

An increasing trend in plastic surgery is that more and more men are also opting for cosmetic procedures to maintain and enhance their appearance. This is moving plastic surgery beyond the basic breast implants and face lifts. Men are able to get implants for their pectorals, fat removed to help definition of their abdominal muscles, or Botox or other types of facial shaping to retain a youthful appearance.

Plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures to maintain, enhance, or improve your physical appearance are so widespread and socially acceptable that there is no stigma attached to this type of procedure. No longer is it seen as vain or extravagant, appearances matter and, just like going to the gym, it is important to take whatever steps you can to look your best and put your best foot forward to the world.
