Five years ago, British mum Deborah Higley had a boob job, increasing her bust from a 32A to a D. Her teen daughters, flat-chested themselves, shared a bedroom and would chat before sleep at night about how they, too, wanted breast implants. This year Deborah arranged for her 19- and 21-year-old daughters, Harriet and Rose, to increase their cup sizes as well — and their father covered the bill for all of this. For reasons completely unknown to me, the Higley ladies and their new bosoms posed together for the U.K.’s Daily Mirror newspaper. Keep reading »
We here at The Frisky try to take a “free to be you and me” attitude when it comes to body image, but today we are here to tell you that if you are a fashionista who aspires to have designer shoulders — sharp, tailored, chic (think: McQueen, Balmain, Lanvin) — you are going to have to get shoulder plastic surgery if you really want to be on trend. After all, who wants to have unstylish shoulders? We don’t. Our as-yet unaltered shoulders cringe at the mere thought of how pre-surgically off-trend they are. Thankfully, there’s a name for our disorder: shoulder dysmorphia. The diagnosis comes from DIS magazine, which predicts, “consumer anxieties over natural shoulder inadequacy will skyrocket, forcing women to undergo startling new surgical procedures, season to season, in order to keep up with the newest designer shapes.” We cannot wait to get our shoulders sharpened to shiny, skin-covered points that will make walking down a crowded street a dangerous event — for those who pass too close to us.

Lately, it seems everywhere I turn I’m bombarded with images and stories of celebrity plastic surgery. I gawked at the TV incredulously as Heidi Montag revealed her plethora of cosmetic procedures to her flabbergasted mother on “The Hills.” I shook my head at the pages of coverage on Kate Hudson’s alleged boob job. Now, even Courtney Love has a new face?!?!
Our culture is obsessed with plastic surgery and it’s only getting worse. Women get “routine” liposuction and face lifts with the same nonchalance as going to the dentist for a cleaning. As my high school graduation present, my parents bought me a video camera; some of my classmates got new noses. On TV, you’re able to choose between a number of plastic surgery reality shows, and on the web, you can browse through before-and-after surgery pictures.
Obviously, we all want to look our best and be confident in our appearance. If you are one of the rare individuals who are absolutely satisfied with their entire physical form, then I salute you. For the rest of us, there are non-surgical ways to enhance and minimize areas that we are insecure about. After the jump, check out our five favorite ego-boosting quick fixes. Keep reading »
