Fotoshop Spoof Reminds Us to Be Wary of False Claims

Posted on Jan 13, 2012 Plastic Surgery

The video spoof commercial for “Fotoshop by Adobé” is a brilliant little piece of satire that has gone viral because of its truth. If you haven’t seen it, take a look here:Fotoshop video The most crucial point of this video is that most beauty products don’t do what they say they will. From age cream advertisements that have to be pulled because they don’t really get rid of wrinkles to “boob job” creams that have never been shown to result in any significant increase in size or firmness of the breasts, it’s important to be wary of any kind of claim by cosmetics manufacturers who promise great results with no tradeoffs. We should remember to use a similar wariness when looking at magazine photos of celebrities and models, most of which are photoshopped to give them unrealistic proportions. So the next time you consider taking in a picture of that Hollywood starlet or VS model to a breast augmentation consultation, keep three things in mind. First, we can’t make you look like Kelly Brook or Scarlett Johansson. Second, Kelly Brook and Scarlett Johansson don’t even look like they look in those pictures. Third, you don’t want to look like somebody else, you really want to look like yourself, just the best version of yourself possible. So, instead of using fake pictures to govern your breast augmentation goals, try looking at pictures of yourself to find one where you are happy with how your breasts look. It may be from when you were younger, when you carried a little more weight, when you were pregnant, or even when you were wearing a heavily padded bra. The point is that by looking at images of yourself with larger breasts, you get a realistic idea of results you might be able to achieve. You can also get a good idea of possible results by looking in our breast implants before and after gallery. Plastic surgery is not magic, but it can give real results.
