You are likely to come across countless videos of people discussing celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery. Some people have devoted their lives to deconstructing celebrities’ appearances. Why are we fascinated by celebrities’ plastic surgery? This article looks at some of why everyone seems to be fascinated by celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery.
Innate Interest in Beauty
Human beings are naturally attracted to and fascinated by beauty. From a young age, human beings believe that their currency lies in how they look. Therefore, if you come across someone who’s conventionally attractive in ways that stand out from the rest, you are likely to develop an innate interest in wanting to know why they look so beautiful.
This intense pressure to understand the ideal beauty and achieve it affects everyone. Unfortunately, many people tend to resent people who seem to achieve the ideal beauty because they’re unable to achieve it themselves. That’s why we are constantly criticizing celebrities who have undergone plastic surgeries to make ourselves feel better and knock these luminaries off their high statuses.
We all find it comforting to realize that these celebrities don’t just appear like that naturally. The belief that celebrities who look stunning don’t achieve their looks naturally gives us a sigh of relief and helps us love ourselves the way we are. It also helps boost our low self-esteem by helping us realize that it’s virtually impossible to have a perfect-looking body naturally.
Since nobody can defy the natural aging process, we find ourselves adapting to new cultural standards like the idea of ageless beauty. We are always fascinated by old celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery to reverse their aging signs. The age-defying looks we are greeted with on our TV screens every day can make our wrinkles look and feel shameful.
But when we go through the photos of elderly celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery, we get comforted that aging is a natural occurrence, not a personal failure. The signs of cosmetic intervention on these celebrities’ faces are quite reassuring. They also help to subvert the fiction that someone can have a flawless body, with all the necessary features occurring naturally in all the right places.
