Farrah Abraham: 'I Would Waste My Whole Day' Critiquing My Looks Before Plastic Surgery

"Teen Mom" star Farah Abraham defended her plastic surgery to HuffPost Live on Thursday, explaining that her poor self-image became so distracting that she turned to cosmetic procedures.

"I would just waste hours and hours and hours in front of the mirror, and it's to the point where I would waste my whole day and get aggravated with how I look, so I wanted to get surgery, and I think there's nothing wrong with that ... because I didn't mess up my features or my ethnicity or who I am," Abraham said during a discussion about her novel "Celebrity Sex Tape: In The Making."
