I’m not one to knock what other people want to do to their bodies. If you think plastic surgery will make you enjoy life more, you do you. However, there’s something disconcerting about people dropping thousands of dollars for the express purpose of looking exactly like a celebrity. In this case, body modification seems less like empowerment and more like an unflattering cultural mirror that displays our society’s rather disturbing idol worship of pretty people. The latest tale of a person undergoing an extreme, celeb-inspired makeover is that of Claire Leeson, a 24-year-old London woman who spent $30,000 to look like Kim Kardashian. Leeson opened up about the self-esteem issues behind choice to get plastic surgery and her story is worrisome .

Even more upsetting is the fact that this is part of a much larger trend. In fact, celeb-inspired surgery is popular enough that MTV had an entire show dedicated to it. Remember I Want A Famous Face? Yeah, that show actually happened.

Here's a look at some of the folks who have gone under the knife to resemble the people in the pages of Us Weekly. While you check these out, for Pete’s sake, just appreciate your own face. It’s beautiful just as it is.
