Plastic surgery is a trend for men and women. However, nowadays people seem to praise those who do not do plastic surgery. For example, in South Korea many women do at the least botox or double eyelid surgery. But nowadays people have praised actresses like Park Sodam who does not have the "typical" pretty girl look, however, is praised for being beautiful with her natural look. People are emphasizing the fact that she shouldn’t do plastic surgery to survive the entertainment industry. Another example is singer Lee Hyori who was in a famous girl group during the 90s, however, people praise her because she doesn’t do any plastic surgery as she gets older. Many other celebrities her age are starting to look plastic surgery monsters, their faces are unrecognizable.
This is intriguing. I'm curious how this topic will extend into art forms. Someone approaching this could potentially analyze if and how the topic of plastic surgery is approached in art and use the real life occurrences expressed here as a jumping-off point. – emilydeibler5 years ago
There is potential here to talk about the affect of photography as an art form, and the way that editing the human body as part of a piece of art has affected body image? Although that seems to be an entirely different topic. It seems that you're getting at plastic surgery in the context of celebrities and entertainment. – MichelleAjodah5 years ago
This could be under the literature section if someone wanted to cover the trilogy by Scott Westerfeld of The Uglies, The Pretties and The Specials. – Munjeera4 years ago
I agree that this topic could benefit from a different angle so that it's relevant to the arts or literature. I would suggest watching out for judgmental language though, (ie. "plastic surgery monsters"). – Tiffany4 years ago
