Whatever it is, chances are you poke and prod at it, but eventually just learn to accept it as part of who you are – it’s our differences that make us unique, after all.
But with more and more advancements in cosmetic surgery, it seems that some celebrities and beauty fans are going to extreme lengths to get rid of the tiniest of flaws.
