The Gift in the Box, part 2

More today from Barbara Phillips at the concerning the "plastic reality" that is becoming all too common on TV and in life. I suffered verbal abuse from schoolmates as well...the bitter hateful things that kids say to each other...and had a self-esteem issue or two, but NEVER could I fathom the pain one must feel to go under the knife.

Late last month, Rod Rohrich, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, noted in a press release that "the new wave of plastic-surgery reality television is a serious cause for concern. Some patients on these shows have unrealistic and, frankly, unhealthy expectations of what plastic surgery can do for them. I have witnessed plastic surgery disasters where someone tried to look like someone else."
