iPhone's First Plastic Surgery App

Insatiable Plastic-Surgery Addict? There's an App For That

OK, there are a million bad apps out there already, but the Shafer Plastic Surgery App really puts the "terrible" in the "terribly useless." An "informational database of over 1,000 FAQ’s covering invasive and non-invasive plastic surgery procedures and treatments," this iPhone app seems designed mostly to tell young, trendy women about procedures that, if you're at all considering, you should be discussing directly with a doctor instead of a gadget. If plastic surgery is going to make you really, truly happy, then OK, go for it. But taking advice from your phone on how to look your best is probably not a wise idea. Plus, the graphics on this thing are kinda sleazy. A headless female torso with water running down it and just a hint of boob — really? I think surgery is a serious thing, and your self-esteem is too. What about you? Would you download something like this?

It isn't a crime to have a fat gut or be unattractive. Beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder. There's nothing wrong with plastic surgery, but too many women receive the message that they're not okay as they are, and that they really NEED to have plastic surgery. If it's difficult to remember your questions in front of a doctor, it might help to write them down on paper for your consultation. I personally am not a fan of the app, but if it pleases you, then go for it.
