There’s no whispering, questioning or denying at this pageant: yes, the winner did have plastic surgery. So did the runners up, as did everyone else who entered. Miss Plastic Surgery Hungary 2009 is a pageant meant to help show women what plastic surgery can do for a woman and to promote it in a country where cosmetic surgery isn’t a popular option.
There were 18 contestants and they had to prove that they had had cosmetic surgery to be eligible; Botox and other types of injections were not considered. While the type of surgery didn’t matter, the majority of the women did have breast enlargements. Others had nose jobs. One had her toes operated on.
The winners and prizes?
The women weren’t the only ones to receive prizes – their plastic surgeons did too. Among the women though, the winner received an apartment in Budapest, the first runner-up a new car, and the second runner up the equivalent of 10,800 dollars (U.S.).
