A woman who recently had an eyelid operation gets a steroid injection in her face during a post-op checkup. Plastic surgery is fairly common in Venezuela. Men, women and people from all economic backgrounds splurge to reshape their body. Venezuela is one of the cheapest countries in the world for plastic surgery so it attracts patients from all over the world. Fashion and looking good are top priorities in Venezuela, where there is a general culture of beauty. It is a culture that permeates all walks of life and covers the country like a blanket. Girls enter beauty pageants as toddlers and young women and men get plastic surgery as teens. Venezuela is a country where thongs and short skirts are the norm, cleavage awaits around every corner and metrosexual men abound.
