Tonto Dikeh said she is a fan of plastic surgery, however, she won’t force any woman to do it. The decision has to be willingly, she added that if you don’t like any part of your body, you should just fix it.
BBC Pidgin also spoke to plastic surgeons who have specialized in restoration, reconstruction, and alteration of the human body, they revealed the ratio of women that visit the facility is higher than that of men. This doesn’t mean the men have been left out as some do come for six-packs.
