Plastic (i.e. “cosmetic”) surgery is fully out of the closet, gaining rapid acceptance with the mainstream, particularly the woman (and girl) next door.
As an aesthete I appreciate enhancing what you have to look your personal best. The operative word being “your,” not someone else’s ideal. Too much tinkering particularly on the face and your natural beauty, because everyone IS beautiful AND ugly, is replaced with an artificial version, as impressionable as weak tea. This artificial look has come to gain acceptance in very much the way non-organic, microwave, and fast, food have, that is until you run into the authentic versions. Lines rarely make you look old, but your carriage, attitude and spirit can. Many, though not all, beauty procedures are trends that become outdated in a matter of years. Remember facelifts of yesteryear that made its receipients look older? Surgery, on the other hand is irreversible.
