the world is scary  
I wandered over to gofugyourself.com to look at the post-Oscar debris and linkfrogged off to a site I hadn't seen before, awfulplasticsurgery.com. That is a scary, scary place. Many, maybe even most, of the photos make me go, eh, because the posing's not similar enough to even convince me that surgery's been done. But some are horrifying.

Did you know that Paris Hilton used to be *cute*? Me neither. And this is a shudder-inducing warning to everyone who dares to gaze upon it.

The breast implant archives are particularly disturbing.

ETA: If ever you were contemplating plastic surgery, stop now. (Warning: you can't erase what you've seen once you click. It will live on in your nightmares FOREVER.)

I lurrrrve that site. The Paris retrospective made me want to weep, though. Cute! Russian-looking! Not trashy-ho-like in the least! What the hell happened to her, besides Tara Reid?

Poor Tara Reid's Left Breast. *emotes* And yeah, poor Paris too. I didn't know I could feel sorry for her--would have said it was impossible, but man. What kind of fucked-up PLRG life do you have to have to wind up looking like that?

Did you see this link, too? All the more heartbreaking... http://www.awfulplasticsurgery.com/archives/005276.html

The last one is the saddest. I must admit, she has a stunning body in that picture where she's wearing the light-blue dress. But overall: gah.

OH MY HOLY FUCKING GOD! Who the hell is the Catwoman? She's just.... I'm experiencing fear.

Here name is Jocelyn Wildenstein--there's a link to her on the homepage. *waves feebly toward site*

To be honest, I clicked away quickly and hesitated to go back for actual info. Man. I'm willing to bet she started out as a pleasant looking (though mentally deranged) woman and only became the Feline Hellbeast after untold thousands of dollars of surgery.

That's what gets me most about plastic surgery. All these already attractive people going under the knife and coming out homogenized and oddly puffy duplicates of one another. Blech.

Miss Perfect and I hold regular bonding sessions over Go Fug Yourself and Awful Plastic Surgery, and then go buy more jeans and sweaters, or go to Yazdi.

Almost every time I go back to my oncologist for a checkup, he asks me if I'm interested in reconstructive surgery. And every time, I say no. Surgery for necessary medical reasons is one thing, but no way am I ever going under the knife again if I don't have to. I'll just be flat on one side, thank you.

The plastic surgery addicts that look particularly scary now are: Melanie Griffith, Michael Douglas, and of course, Cher.

Jennifer Grey absolutely destroyed her unique good looks when she got a nose job. I watched a made for TV movie she was supposed to be in a few years ago, and I never figured out which character she was playing until I saw the credits. Also, the movie was very boring and I wasn't paying close close attention. Regardless, she was a unique beauty and now she's just blah plastic looking. I've seen her quoted that her nose job was the biggest mistake she ever made.

I worked with a plastic surgery addict years ago. She got chin and cheek implants, eye lid surgery, nose job, but lift, tummy tuck, and boobs. The final straw came when she tried to make me feel how *real* her boobs felt in the employee break room. Yikes.

Here in Houston, a plastic surgeon from some third world country who couldn't get licensed to practice was arrested for performing plastic surgery in the back of a hair salon at a *MALL*

On the other hand, I've known two women who got breast reductions who were thrilled beyond belief. I also had a friend who had gross cranial and facial deformities resulting from a birth defect and the surgeons that worked on her made her into a very pretty lady. I never knew her before, but she showed me several pictures from her teen years, and she the transformation was nothing short of miraculous.

re: awfulplasticsurgery.com

I've had some fun going to this website in the past. I usually get annoyed within five minutes though. Why does the page author seem to think that ANY plastic surgery is BAD plastic surgery? There are several people on there who apparently (according to the site) have the worst plastic surgery ever. And yet, I think they look great. Have you seen Eliza Dushku's supposed plastic surgery "crimes"? First of all, I'm not sure she had anything done other than getting older and filling out. If it is plastic surgery, it's a damned subtle job. But secondly, her "after" pic looks great. She's a little more tan than I like, but she still looks gorgeous. What's the big deal?

Furthermore, I'm still unconvinced that Jessica Simpson had anything other than a boob lift. I have rather large breasts for a small frame, and they look like that, too, when I wear really tight dresses.

Ewww. Not going to go there. Our secretary just had her eyes ... debagged or whatever they call it. It was completely cosmetic and optional. I have never once looked at this woman, and thought, "Gee, you have *bags* under your eyes." (I did donate to get her a plant, although reluctantly.)

Then she emailed us pictures of what she looked like after surgery. Huh? That was just gross. And really, you know, it was self inflicted.
