In recent times the term ‘Cosmetic Surgery’ is not a new one since it is used on a frequent basis. Most frequently while surfing through the internet or reading through print media we come across celebrities going for or through a cosmetic surgery in the quest of having that perfect body or face. Well certainly perfect in their eyes. Lot of these trends are driven by social media for better or for worse. You may not care about humans colonising the moon, but surely you can name at least one Kardashian.
Surgeries used to be costly and could only be afforded by the elite, but as they became cheaper and less risky, more and more people started showing interest. Today nearly every b-town actress had at least a lipo done or is planning for some procedure in coming years.
The biggest innovations in the field of cosmetic surgery are the combination of surgical and non-surgical techniques to achieve facial rejuvenation. Particularly Botox and fillers are becoming much more mainstream and those are being used in combination with surgery. So the patients are following a pathway rather than having one individual treatment.
Twenty six year old, Pixee Fox is a cosmetic surgery addict setting an extreme example in social media. In her quest of becoming a real life ‘Barbie’, she has spent a total of 180,000$, the most bizarre of the procedures being six of her ribs removed to attain a waist size of just 16 inches. Thirty two year old Justin Jedlica is a living doll. He had over 125 procedures including custom abdominal implants and 5 nose jobs.
Today cosmetic surgery is in great practice. The participants take it as a means to carve their own bodies. Certainly being an addict is self-destructive, but it does provide a sense of happiness and satisfaction in participants.
