Social Media May Be Driving Younger People to Seek Out Plastic Surgery

Social Media May Be Driving Younger People to Seek Out Plastic Surgery

In the old days, people used to want Angelina Jolie’s nose. Now, according to an increasing number of plastic surgeons, patients often refer to their own selfies during cosmetic consultations, in an attempt to recreate the way their own face looks in a front-facing camera or through a puppy dog eyes filter.

This shift has been well documented over the last several years; a paper published in...

New Bones and Huge Testicles Tied Up With String, These Are a Few Of Incels' Favorite Things

In addition to the idea that women are petty sluts who only wish to ride a “cock carousel” of hot dudes rather than get with them, incels now think their literal bone structure is ruining their lives. The solution? Head to a shady Indianapolis plastic surgeon who can give them new cheekbones fit for a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.

For New York Magazine, reporter Alice Hines writes about incels...

Michelle Visage Evicts Her 'Toxic Sacks of Silicone'

Michelle Visage Evicts Her 'Toxic Sacks of Silicone'

Michelle Visage’s breasts are at least as delightful an element of RuPaul’s Drag Race as Ross Mathews, and next time we see them (Visage’s breasts, not Ross Mathews), they’ll be sans implants.

Visage recently told People that she had her implants removed and endured an agonizing-sounding four-week recovery because she worried they might be exacerbating an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto’s...

Cosmetic Surgery Is a Personal Choice

Cosmetic Surgery Is a Personal Choice

The Guardian reported on Thursday that an unnamed man who’d been wanted for drug trafficking for some 15 years was arrested on Tuesday by Spanish police who say he evaded authorities by getting implants in his fingertips.

These tiny implants are reportedly administered by cutting and burning the fingertip skin and replacing the removed skin with new fingerprints, which are a great way to feel...

Your Selfies Are Maybe Fucking With Your Brain

Your Selfies Are Maybe Fucking With Your Brain

Plastic surgeons have found clients are bringing in photos of their own faces as inspiration for their cosmetic work, according to a deep dive into the phenomenon by the Guardian, published Wednesday.

The Plight of the Aspiring 'Startender'/Kim Kardashian Wannabe on True Life

One of the most sensitive-slash-lurid creations MTV has ever devised, True Life, returned Wednesday night in a slightly altered format—it’s titled True Life/Now, and features occasional talking heads opining on the issue du jour. This episode followed three people who idolize the Kardashians to the point of emulating them physically and, wow, was it depressing.

Multiple, if not all, of the...

Jane Fonda Really Got Under Megyn Kelly's Skin

Jane Fonda Really Got Under Megyn Kelly's Skin

In September 2017, Megyn Kelly had a strained, awkward interaction with her guest Jane Fonda. Kelly asked the actor why she had said in a previous interview that she wasn’t proud to admit to getting some plastic surgery work done, and Fonda expressed her displeasure at the question, quickly changing the subject.

That’s it, end of not-so-bad confrontation! It’s a talk show and this definitely...

The Nipped, Tucked, and Photoshopped Revelations of Instagram's Celebface

In 2006 Dove was on a mission to show the world “real beauty.” As part of an ongoing campaign to make women feel comfortable in their own skin, the company released an ad showing the labor-intensive process of transforming a woman into a model. In sped-up time, her fresh face gets covered in makeup, her hair is curled into perfect ringlets, and photographs are taken. The real fun begins as...

Jocelyn Wildenstein's Fiancé: 'She Never Really Did Anything to Change Her Face'

Jocelyn Wildenstein's Fiancé: 'She Never Really Did Anything to Change Her Face'

With the way they dote on each other when they aren’t scratching each other’s eyes out , it’s amazing to me that severe socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein and her fashion designer paramour Lloyd Klein are not on reality TV. I guess given the massive settlement she received in her divorce from art dealer Alec Wildenstein in 1999 (a reported $2.5 billion), she doesn’t really need the money. What...

A 42-year-old woman from Houston, Texas named Claudia Sierra elected to undergo eight plastic surgeries in order to look more like Melania Trump.

E!'s New Plastic Surgery Show <i>Good Work</i> Isn't As Bad As It Should Be

On Tuesday night after Botched, E! debuted a new series called Good Work, hosted by RuPaul and featuring Botched surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow. Its mission is to analyze and critique alleged celebrity plastic surgery. It could've been an utter disaster.

It wasn't. The show idea itself—publicly dissecting celebrity faces and bodies, overwhelmingly women in this case—is inherently crude,...
