NB: – Plastic surgery is a personal choice and is not in and of itself a justification for criticism or unsolicited assumptions about a person’s self-image.

– Trends in plastic surgery reflect cultural expectation rather than individual cases.

– Plastic surgery itself is not fake per se (reference to article), but rather the expectation that it is possible for middle aged women to have taut skin is a warped one.
