Gaddafi So Vain

It looks like dictators are vain too – Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi (who has recently been killed) has been confirmed to have undergone plastic surgery while in power. In efforts to look younger, Gaddafi had his plastic surgeon remove fat from his belly, and inject it into his face to remove some of the wrinkles. He also regularly got hair plugs in order to maintain his famous mane. Gaddafi’s reasoning for these changes were a ploy to attract younger followers. He felt after being in power 25 years, younger Libyans were less and less likely to follow him the older he appeared. He felt his power hinged on the idea that he embodied strength, and he didn’t want people to start viewing him as a weak old man. Just goes to show, you don’t have to be a NYC housewife, or Hollywood starlet inorder to get some work done under the knife.
