I love plastic surgery shows. Seriously. Extreme Makeover (ABC), I Want a Famous Face (MTV) and now The Swan (FOX) top my list of must-see TV programs each week. I know, I know -- I'm aware of the criticism -- nay, disgust -- that often greets these gregarious displays of physical transformation. I even agree, rationally, with the denunciations. The shows do indeed propagate the misconception that the key to happiness lies in changing one's appearance. They feed into society's absolute obsession with beauty while simultaneously minimizing the seriousness of major operative surgery. All of this I realize, but I remain nonetheless a captivated spectator, anxious to see the results. I confess, a bit shamefully but also sincerely: I am superficial.
