The price women pay for beauty

There are the good, the bad and the downright ridiculous things women do in search of beauty. Some women go out seeking for cheap plastic surgery to enhance body parts. But one woman was not lucky. She ended up in the hands of a quack doctor who filled her buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant. According to online beauty experts, there's a new page in the ever-growing book of bizarre beauty procedures. Joining the list of treatments like extreme buttocks implants is gum tattooing - more specifically-tattooing your gums black to achieve a more beautiful smile, piercing of body parts and bleaching among others.
