Bristol Palin, Abstinence Advocate,* Gets Plastic Surgery

Bristol Palin became famous because her mother was the Republican candidate for vice president in 2008.  At the time, Bristol was 18 and pregnant.  Since then, she has become a spokesperson for Candies, an organization which encourages* young people not to have sex before marriage.  She travels around the U.S. making speeches,* and also appeared* on Dancing With the Stars.  Now, she has had plastic surgery.  She claims* it was for medical reasons.*
“It improved* the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons, so my jaw* and teeth could properly realign.*  I don’t obsess over my face,” she said.  However, she added, “I’m absolutely thrilled* with the results.”
You can see in the pictures that she has a new, more prominent chin, thinner neck and face, and higher cheekbones.
It doesn’t seem  the publicity will hurt her public image.  She is about to release* her biography, entitled Not Afraid of Life, and later this year will star in her own reality TV show.
