Tyra Banks, host and creator of America's Top Model, is all for plastic surgery and in fact thinks it is "absolutely fantastic!”

“I hate when models say ‘Oh, plastic surgery is just a wrong thing," the former supermodel says in an interview with Yahoo! Singapore.  “What're you talking about? You won the genetic lottery," she went on. "You look like this specimen that’s making people everywhere feel insecure and you're going to ridicule someone for getting plastic surgery?"

Banks, who started modeling at 15, used to be teased for her looks. "I was very much teased as a kid for my forehead and even on the internet.”

It was her modeling career that made her feel good about her appearance. "My agency told me that if I had a smaller forehead, I would be too commercial." Now she calls herself “flawsome with a big forehead and cellulite.”

Tyra is 38 and still gorgeous but would she have plastic surgery at some point? "Sure!" She said but is indecisive when she will actually do it. “I’m very lucky,” she admitted. “But if one day I have wrinkles and I don’t like it, I don't know if I will cut myself but maybe… a little Botox, fillers?”

I wish more actors/models would feel that way instead of bashing plastic surgery and getting it secretly. What a strange world. I can't comprehend how is this different from coloring hair, bleeching teeth, etc. It's maintenance to me.

Oh my gosh, I was just going to say the same thing. I totally agree that cosmetic improvements such as veneers, braces, you could even go so far as to say the lap band, etc. are really not any different than botox, fillers, laser, cosmetic surgery... I say, to each their own, don't judge!
