Iggy Azalea’s Nose Job, Before and After

Well, yet another lovely celeb has taken a step toward destroying any physical individuality in pursuit of some imaginary ideal. Iggy Azalea has openly admitted to getting a nose job, which we all knew she did anyway because now she looks like the result of one of those facewarping iPhone apps. Of course, we’re in the height of lauding her for her honesty, but let’s not pretend this isn’t still sad news.

Can You Work In The Beauty Industry and Still Be Pro-Women?

So you know that weird phenomenon where you learn a new word or talk about something really random, and then it seems to follow you around?

(Actually, I’m pretending to sound like I don’t know what it’s called right now, but I do. There’s a name for it and that name is the┬áBaader-Meinhof phenomenon.

And surprisingly, doctors administer more Botox to women ages 22-40 than to women over 60. And Botox usage increased 4783% from 1997 to 2006. So tell me, ladies: would you go under the needle? (Don’t worry – my polls are anonymous unless you choose not to be, so no one will know your skin-plumping secrets.)

Liposuction as cosmetic surgery for middle-aged adults

It’s during the middle-aged years that adults grow wiser, having learned from their previous mistakes. The middle-aged years is also a time when adults start seeing the results of their food choices. Stomachs may begin to balloon, thighs widen and hips thicken. However, diet isn’t the only culprit. Stress also plays a role in what an adult’s body looks like after she enters her middle years. Exercise is one option to slim down, getting back to earlier sizes. But, it’s not the only option.
