Is Everybody Really Doing Plastic Surgery? Do You Personally Know Anyone Who Is?

The cover of the issue of Time Magazine currently out on shelves would have us believe that plastic surgery is an everyday thing now, and everybody is getting it done.

The cover’s text is downright threatening: Nip. Tuck. Or Elese.

Everybody is getting plastic surgery done, says Time Magazine. I’m skeptical of this claim. I haven’t gotten any plastic surgery done on my body, and I don’t know anybody who has.

Do you?

Time’s editors have seen your future, and they’re not afraid to tell you what it is: “Why you’ll be getting cosmetic procedures even if you may not really want to… You’re going to have to do it. And not all that long from now.”

The strange thing is, this week’s article on plastic surgery doesn’t stand alone. The magazine published two other articles on plastic surgery within the last two months. Why? Is Time being paid by a professional association of plastic surgeons to write these articles?

Perhaps plastic surgery is prevalent in the social circles frequented by the management of Time Magazine. I couldn’t say – I don’t run in those circles.

    Good call, Rowan. Most people who read time do so in the waiting room of a doctor’s office. They’re good at telling you what they want you to believe.
