Extreme Plastic Surgery is Extremely Rare

There was a lot of buzz this week about Cindy Jackson, the Guinness World Record holder for most cosmetic procedures (52 and counting--see photo montage).
We're inundated with the extreme surgery tales of Heidi Montag, "Real Life Barbie" Sarah Burge, and "Catwoman" Jocelyn Wildenstein. They're chronicled by the biggest gossip mags and news programs alike.Throw in "Bridalplasty", "The Swan", plus a handful of Bravo shows and you'd think that women everywhere were trending toward total body makeovers via silicone and scalpels.
But a quick perusal through RealSelf shows that most women are looking for ways to avoid surgery.
Questions and discussions about non-surgical options pop-up every day:
Of course there's a middle ground between over the counter creams and actual surgery. There's a lot of interest in having a little filler here, a small Injectable there. The moral is: most women aren't trying to surgically modify their entire body. Even if they're not happy with their appearance, those willing to go the lengths of Ms. Jackson are few and far between.
But that doesn't mean we can't be fascinated! :)
