If you lived in Lebanon or even visited it in the last 10 years, you would know exactly what i am talking about. Ever since Nancy Ajram made her breakthrough with “Akhasmak Ah” song back in 2003, this is what girls started to look like:
Small nose, augmented cheeks, filled lips.
And these are just basic interventions. Facelift, Brow Lift, Eyelid lift and the list goes on.
Not so good looking girls (not to say ugly), used these surgeries to “enhance” their looks. In most cases, it was a complete makeover and you’d barely recognize them after surgery (we all received those celebrities before/after pictures).
But this is not the point behind my post. My point is that I may understand those girls, even though in most cases they got uglier, not to mention the whole plastic/fake look, but I can’t understand the beautiful girls, and more, former beauty queens.
This is just Nadine, I’m sure lots of other beautiful girls did and will be doing the same and this is just sad. I can’t help but questioning the motive behind it.
Did these surgeries establish a beauty standard that even beautiful girls should abide by? Is natural beauty just not enough anymore?
