There is a 26 year-old China girl Coco who joined the blind date for more than 200 times among five years, but she rejected all the man because all of them do not accord with her ideal boyfriend.

The plastic surgery experts said that most of the doctor will tell the patient about the risk of the operation, but do not eliminate that some of the informal institutions just for the sake of interests.
Besides, plastic surgery can be very expensive and it is usually not covered by medical insurance. The high operation fees are not everyone can afford. There may also be a financial loss due to time taken off for the recovery after the surgery. Before undergoing plastic surgery, discover more and research about the surgery. Collect more information from the doctor or listen to the advice that given by the others who has experience.
