Anyone catch VH1 Plastic Surgery Obsession?
 
It was an hour long special. Very informative and I think it hits the nail right on the head. Was interesting seeing all the before and after photos of Demi Moore and Lil Kim... wow!

Here's the 'about the episode' taken from VH1.com:

"America The Beautiful" is no longer just a patriotic anthem. This country has an obsession with physical perfection and a booming makeover industry fuels our desires - and anxieties. In VH1 News Presents: Plastic Surgery Obsession, we'll delve into why America has become makeover crazed and why everyone wants to look the same. It's Knife-Styles of the rich and famous for those indulging in the craze. But there are costs. Are we headed for E.T. Chic - a country of men and women who appear more alien than human? What's happened to our spirit of individuality? Are we creating a Stepford world, where we're all carbon copies of one another?

We'll trace the history of Hollywood and Madison Avenue's obsession with youth. We'll review the early pioneers of plastic surgery, from the hush-hush beginnings to today, where plastic surgery is flaunted on television's newest Cinderella-reality stories. What happens to the people once the faces heal and the cameras leave? We'll introduce viewers to the latest trends in makeover madness, from Botox to silicone injections provided by unlicensed practitioners.

I remember that and I do agree with that plastic surgery is not only the norm but expected. If you have a bump on your nose... fix it! If you have small breast... implants! That's the mentality our nation is starting to have. I wonder how far it will go and is it wrong?
