During the 21st century, advertisements use many methods to attract the audience. Companies, especially cosmetic companies, use their advertisements to manipulate their viewers to make them think that they need their beauty products. Revlon is a perfect example of these cosmetic companies that play with your mind. Revlon’s mascara commercial campaign utilizes ethos, pathos, and logos.
Picture that you wake up every day by thinking you are ugly. Whenever you stand in front of a mirror, you will throw up from looking at yourself. Can such imaginations become reality? It can. They are ugly. In the book Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, the main character, Tally, fights with these imaginations every single day until she turns 16 years old. In the society where she lives people are judged as ugly before their 16th birthday. It is different as getting the driver license. It is similar as having a totally different life. Most people are in a hurry to have a surgery that will change their appearance even though people may look beautiful on the outside, they are ugly on the inside.
Contradicting popular belief, the culture of Asian plastic surgery is not intended to ‘Westernize’ the outward appearance; the general aim of face-altering-life-changing procedures is unique in its style and connection
As a little girl you are encouraged to be who you want to be. You fill your world with fairy tales or Barbie dolls that inspire you to believe that the sky is the limit. But little do you know, that as you grow older, the dreams you are forging for yourself is no longer achievable. Where you once saw the sky as the limit is now transformed to be seen as a man’s word as the limit. No little girl, you are not liberated nor are you empowered…you are simply propagated by a man’s world to believe that you are. But where did it all start and how did you get to this position?

Melanie Griffith is one of those unfortunate sufferers of bad plastic surgery.
15. Should teens be allowed to get plastic surgery without parental consent? This is a tough question. On one hand, the surgery might be pointless and in spur of the moment because the teen wants to look “perfect”. Some parents really do want the best for their kids and they know whether a certain surgery is necessary or not. On the other hand, there may be an instance where a teen is extremely insecure about their appearance and they’ve been bullied about it. The parents love their child and don’t see anything wrong. They might not even know about the bullying or even if their kid was insecure at
From tummy tucks to botox, plastic surgery can change the way a person looks anywhere on our body. Plastic surgery has become widespread and it is not limited to one specific age group, it is both used by teenagers and the elderly alike. There were a total of 1.7 million cosmetic procedures done in 2016, a four percent increase from 2015 (American Society of Plastic Surgeons 5). The most popular plastic surgery procedure has been breast augmentation since 2006. Breast augmentation is a surgery that increases breast size. 290,000 procedures were performed in 2016 (ASPS Public Relations 5). The 2nd highest cosmetic plastic surgery is liposuction which is when they remove excess fat from the body. Liposuction had 235,237 surgeries in 2016 which was 6% more than
Today plastic surgery is being embraced by the millions and highly looked upon. Advertisements and media incorporated young, beautiful women to sell the product with fake and flawless women in advertisements, an ideal body is created by the minds of viewers. This causes viewers to do as much as possible involving plastic surgery, to look like the models. For Instance, in 2015 more than 13.5 million women went under the knife by surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics. The five most popular invasive surgical procedures for women in 2015 were liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery and breast lift (ASPS statistics). Also, cosmetic procedures have increased by 39% over the past ﬁve years (from 2011) with surgical procedures up 17% and nonsurgical procedures up 44%(ASPS statistics). It shows that young women are willing to put themselves in danger because they feel the need to meet society's expectations of beauty. When going into cosmetic surgery, there is a risk of death or side effects that people are aware of, but still undergo the procedure. All because we live in a world where first impressions are made by how we look and thanks to magazines advertisements they set the “ideal” look for us and we all try to reach that look no matter how it
In general, from 1884 to the 1920s women worked so hard to achieve women 's rights. Women have always been looked down upon by different groups within society. From the early times women have been viewed as weak figures. As recently as the early 1900’s women were unable to work in professional fields such as business and medicine. This resulted in women being unable to advance financially in society and being dependent on their husbands. Many women were subjugated to working in factories that produced clothes, war parts, and car parts. These jobs were not very secure, were unsafe, and paid very little for long days. A family would not have been able to live off of such a small income. Although many opportunities have been spread to women of
Many women face the fear that they are not good enough for anyone or even themselves. They always find something that is apart of their body that is not quite how they like it. Since women find something about themselves that is not good enough, they think that they need to change their body in order to be happy. A common way of changing their body is by getting cosmetic plastic surgery; particularly silicone breast implants. It may seem like it is a great idea at the time, but once the person changes what they do not like about themselves, they will find another thing that causes them to get cosmetic plastic surgery again. These types of procedures are known to cause problems a couple years later. Women will keep choosing to get plastic surgery until they are satisfied-which will be never. Therefore, silicone breast implants should be prohibited.
According to Greenberg (2013), approximately 20% of the girls between the age of 8 and 18 who are using makeup say that they felt unappealing and undesirable without wearing makeup. And as a result of the survey she conducted, girls are wearing or using makeup in early age. They are also influenced by their celebrity idols, other people in TV shows and by the people in the environment they belonged. It says that women are more comfortable going out and socializing when they are wearing makeups. It also implied that the reasons why girls in early age prefer using makeup are because they are copying what older people around them do.
Cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery is defined as a form of medicine focused on making enhancements to the body. It is intended to correct flawed areas on the body and is restoring in its nature. This type of surgery can be performed on the head, body, and neck. During a study, performed by Dr. Jane Weston and Anne Pearl, they found out high school junior’s opinions on cosmetic surgery.

From this study done by Weston and Pearls, a large number of teens in this school would consider getting cosmetic surgery. There are different reasons to wanting it done. One might consider it for self-esteem purposes or if they have a medical problem that is disabling them from living a normal life.

The first question I asked is "Is Plastic Surgery should be banned or not?” Well, I answered it that Plastic Surgery should not be banned, why? There are so many reasons to say but there are only few I want to be specify, there are: (1) It is a freedom to change physical appearance, (2) Increase self-confidence of those who undergo the process and (3) Helps patient return their old face or body. Don 't judge people by what they did. Not because they take plastic surgery so will you judge them that they are not contented in their life, maybe yes, it 's partly true but not almost. All people have reason for what they doing. Nowadays, the problem in people is they didn 't want to listen to explanation they just want to judge and contented for what they see.
