Fans get plastic surgery to look like their favorite celebrity
The one thing that does stand out to me is that not a single one of these people remotely resembles their celebrity “twin.” Plastic surgery has a long way to go…but then again, making someone look like someone else has never been our goal.
In the immortal words of Gaspar Tagliacozzi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
, the father of plastic surgery in 1597, “ We restore, repair, and make whole those parts…which fortunate has taken away, not so much that they may delight the eye, but that they may buoy up the spirit and help the mind of the afflicted.”
Surgery can’t cure all afflictions. And I don’t think that even Sigmund Freud himself could help the mind of someone afflicted with the incomprehensible objective of looking like Michael Jackson.
