We’ve all heard of getting a lil work done to “correct” our imperfections – but what about cosmetic treatments to make them? Apparently, dental surgery to create crooked teeth has become popular in Japan. It is said to be inspired by the fact that men have been discovered to find women with less than perfect smiles more approachable.
Now I’m no advocate of cosmetic surgery (though, I really don’t judge). And I do obsess over my complexion as much as the next gal, though I do think there is something to learning to love yourself – flaws and all. But having cosmetic de-enhancements is just counter-intuitive…it kinda turns the concept of “flaws” upside down!
What do you all think? Do you think this phenomenon embraces imperfection or is another form of contorting ourselves for the acceptance of others?…You can probably tell which camp I think it falls into.
*Note: This post does not imply that I think reverse cosmetic surgery is more extreme or more hurtful than traditional surgical enhancements. No finger pointing here.
