To Blair Manus, cosmetic surgery is simply another tool to maintain her appearance – not unlike exercise, a healthy diet or a full night's sleep. Over the years, Manus has undergone Botox treatments and filler injections in her cheeks, nose and chin. But she does so with caution, hoping to maintain a natural look.
