Plastic Rebellion

Consumers fight back against the growth of a “plastic planet”

Implications - With almost 9.5 million cosmetic procedures conducted in 2010 (as reported by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery), it doesn’t seem likely that consumers are shying away from plastic surgery. Yet, a rise in “anti-plastic” ads and photography may indicate otherwise. Making a profound statement on the industry, these often hard-to-stomach images show that true beauty can’t be reached with a knife. Like the fight against too-skinny models, this plastic rebellion reminds consumers of the consequences of emphasizing outer beauty over inner beauty.
