While most beauty pageants disqualify competitors who have had plastic surgery, Miss Plastic required it. Held in Budapest in 2009, the contest was open to entrants over the age of 18 who had undergone surgical enhancement, in some form or the other. A boob-job or a nose-fix or a face-lift or buttocks-implant – anything will do as long as the contestants can produce medical records to prove it.
The contestants, who ranged in age from 19 to 38, were judged on their beauty as well as on the surgeon’s handiwork by a medical panel who rated the prowess of the doctors who performed the work on them.
The pageant organizers say the Miss Plastic contest is a celebration of the medical work that allows women to look and feel their best aesthetically.
