Of all the self-referential ways the fashion world comments on itself, plastic surgery-themed editorials are simply one of the best. That is because most efforts at self-reference, in all contexts fashion or not, come off with a hint of self-indulgent and a dash of un-self-critical, while it’s pretty f*cking impossible for a decent plastic surgery themed editorial to do that.

The imagery of plastic surgey is so grotesque that it makes you think “Oh, that’s AWFUL!” even if you still want to look like the model therein. These photos, for lack of a better word, “expose” the price of beauty, if you can call it that.

It also just happens to appeal to my inner Gothic sensibilities (I was a terrible Goth, I could never shut up) because once you grown up listening to Marilyn Manson you will never not enjoy a photo that combines the glamorous with the macabre.

Roll up, roll up! Come and marvel at our illegal clinic. Blunt sharps and filthy gloves.The surgeon (butcher?) chainsmokes throughout the operation. But that’s ok, cause so does the patient. Come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab! I see you shiver with anticipation?…

Additionally, it echoes a Suicidegirls photoset published during the site’s heyday, which was humorous and compelling enough to still be stuck in my mind, seven years later. Related, that makes me feel old.
