iVoice Angelica Perez sits down with Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Yager and his patient "Carmen" to learn about the motivations behind Latina women traveling to other countries in pursuit of plastic surgery -- and the sometimes disastrous consequences.

I wish women had more confidence to accept their bodies as they where through healthy diet and exercise then resorting to things like plastic surgery to fit into an ideal that's been shaped by our media. Sadly, little girls learn very early how much society considers them "lacking" for their impoerfections. And these stereotypes are reinforced both through female media AND male media.

There were times when I thought about what "work" I would get done but what has always held me back is a proudness of certain things that made me me, for better or worse. And the fact that my features come from a line of people in my family that I carry proudly.

It's my favorite soap! Although once-in-awhile I buy this goat milk soap from Whole Foods that is really great too.
