Every website has to pay its dues; without ad revenue, it’s awful hard to pay for content. That said, some ads are classier than others–while that local mom who drives plastic surgeons crazy is awful suspect, she’s still a step … More
Of all the weird contradictory things demanded of us by conventional beauty, I’ve always thought the “skinny body, baby face” thing to be particularly unfair. While there are certainly people who look that way naturally, it’s almost impossible for anyone not named Lily Cole or Cara Delevingne to “achieve” that look without getting surgery on one part or another.

Oh, Kim Kardashian. The reality television star/one woman super-brand (or, as we like to call her, simply, The Adversary) is still pregnant, flitting about, living her usual reality TV stunt life. More
I first met The Painter in my interview. I knocked on the door of her apartment and heard someone shout “come in” over loud vibratos of Edith Piaf. Cigarette smoke was practically seeping out from beneath the door. I opened the door, and through the dense puffs saw an elderly woman with thin orange hair, a Chinese silk robe, and a red Solo cup in hand. Brown lipstick was smeared all over the bottom half of her face, and her breath smelled like an odd combination of vodka and sherbet. The walls were covered in enormous paintings of planets, which I later learned were called “Spacescapes.” And the place was a mess. More

By now you’re probably all-too familiar with Sarah Burge, the self-proclaimed Human Barbie who–among other offenses–gave her daughter a breast implant voucher as a birthday present. When she turned seven. Yesterday, she stopped by Anderson Cooper‘s show to defend herself, equivocate and backtrack. More

Photographer Philip Toledano‘s series “A New Kind of Beauty” raises some interesting questions about the relationship between plastic surgery and beauty–questions we’ve wrestled with on this very blog. Can altering oneself cosmetically be a form of self-expression? Or is it always, at least in part, determined by prevailing opinions about beauty? Opinions, of course, that are often sexist, racist, classist and all kinds of barbaric. Toledano’s strange, unsettling images concern those who have taken plastic surgery to extremes, but depicts them in classical portraiture. More
Recently, I graduated from having Botox injected into my forehead and crow’s feet and fillers injected into my smile lines to also having fillers injected under my eyes. Guess what? It worked instantly, and I am now slightly prettier! More
Whenever celebrities cop to getting plastic surgery, do you find it refreshing or still kind of a bum out? French actress Emmanuelle Béart is the latest, not only admitting to going under the knife but candidly discussing her regret. More
Despite what this picture would lead you to believe, getting good preventative Botox in your 20′s (or early 30′s) requires more than just wearing some shimmery eye-shadow and flase eyelashes. We talked to dermatologist Stephen Bracci about why more people are getting Botox younger and how to have it done well.
The first time I left the clinic, I had an angry row of red bumps over my eyebrows. For a brief period, I looked like a Klingon. I have since purchased a fedora which I wear home from all Botox appointments. More
