Dutch term or phrase: lijkt de drempel steeds lager te liggen
Nog steeds aan het worstelen....

Cijfers uit Amerika tonen aan dat de vraag naar plastische chirurgie in de laatste jaren sterk gegroeid is.Doordat chirurgie met regelmaat terugkomt in de media en zelfs bekende Nederlanders er voor uitkomen een behandeling bij een privé kliniek niet geschuwd wordt, *lijkt de drempel steeds lager te liggen*.
