While I was at the L.A. Times website I came across this article on plastic surgery getting out of hand. I know I've seen some people become almost unrecognizable. One non-actor who comes to mind is Axl Rose. The last time I saw him on TV, he'd had some face work done, and if they hadn't said who he was I'd never have guessed. All his prior distinguishing features were gone, and I didn't see any compensating improvement in his looks.
High-definition TV may be partially behind this, and is only going to exacerbate it. After seeing a prototype HD TV years ago, I remember marvelling at the clarity and thinking that makeup artists will have hard work ahead of them. It looks like the plastic surgeons will get their business boosted as well.
