Body Image: Achieving the impossible?

Cosmetic surgery is a booming industry with an increase in teenagers seeking to conform by eradicating 'abnormal' body features or seeking to replicate the models in the magazines. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) 400,000 teens had some form of cosmetic procedure, and an estimated 210,000 elective plastic surgeries.

This short Australian film shows a young woman getting ready for a date given the ability to mold herself like clay to achieve her ideal body and face.

Watch it. It is only 6 minutes.
