For those of you who think that there may be too much plastic surgery in the Scottsdale and Phoenix metropolitan area.

Who disparage the women of Scottsdale stating that their breast augmentations, tummy tucks and liposuction make them appear too superficial and overdone.

Who may feel that cosmetic surgery is just so frivolous and it reflects the shallowness of the individual who has had it…

I now offer you the other alternative for your viewing, er, pleasure:

Yes, they are 100% natural – pure, unadulterated women. No breast augmentations. No nose jobs. Or tummy tucks. Or anything resembling cosmetic surgery or even cosmetics in general.

Come to think of it, I wonder if they even have teeth? Or any iota of good taste and discretion.

But there they are, in the snow and cold of St. Petersburg, Russia, in early March proudly flaunting their surgically untouched physiques. Even though they are “perhaps” beauty challenged, they do appear to be quite happy and contented.

So, who are we to judge them?

Matter of fact, there may be some inebriated older men “cruising” around who may be whistling at them right now.

Yes, so when it is illustrated this way, the beautification of Scottsdale and Phoenix aided with plastic surgery is not so bad after all, is it? And knowing that plastic surgery does increase the particular individual’s confidence, self-esteem, happiness, satisfaction and so forth – it can be a win-win for everyone.
