SheFinds News: Plastic Surgery Overload?

As helpful and as life-altering a bit of plastic surgery can be for some people, there are some folks who take this technological wonder to the extreme. For example, Sarah Burge has spent more than $350,000 to change her appearance and pays nearly $40,000 per year on maintenance. Over a forty-year span, she’s had 27 procedures, ranging from an ear tuck to lipo, to silicone implants to threading away her smile lines. She calls herself “The Real Life Barbie” and not surprisingly, admits to being more plastic than the doll itself. Luckily, her surgery has left her looking human, and dare I say, even beautiful.


Though why mess with what nature gave you? I think it’s sad how women feel the need or desire to butcher themselves, especially in cases when the surgery goes terribly wrong, like it has for Jocelyn Wildenstein, the Real Life Cat Woman. And what about these celebrities who cut themselves up and make it seem like this is normal? It’s a terrible example to set for young women across the country.

What do you think? Acceptable? Or downright scary?
