Negative Images of Women in Popular Culture

  2. 2. BUTTS - Implants? Or Brazilian Butt Lift? “A benefit of the Brazilian butt lift is that you not only get a shapelier buttock, but the area to liposuction is now much leaner, giving your profile a more sensuous look.” However, implants may be recommended for patients who have very little body fat to harvest, such as body-builders and naturally thin patients. Procedure prices can vary widely, due to the fact that every patient is different. It could be a range between $8,000 and $12,000.
  3. 3. Faces A full facelift procedure costs an average of $10,000 in Canada. This procedure is divided into several parts: forehead, upper eyelids, the middle of the face and lower eyelids, the lower face and lips, and the neck. The full procedure involves incisions at the hairline and behind the ears. Results generally last about 10 years and are the most demanding of all plastic surgery procedures.
  4. 4. Noses Rhinoplasty is a nose job and the average cost is $5,500. Rhinoplasty is a relatively complicated procedure and is designed to remove bumps, while reshaping and/or reducing the size of the nose. The more experienced the plastic surgeon, the more expensive the procedure. During the initial rhinoplasty consultation, it's a good idea to bring photos of what you want your nose to look like after surgery. About $6000.
  5. 5. Tummy’s Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing fat and extra skin from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles. The surgeon makes two incisions, one from hip to hip and another around the navel. The fat and extra skin are removed, the abdominal muscles are surgically shortened and sutured together. The navel is repositioned in most cases and stretch marks can also be removed during the tummy tuck procedure. Expect to spend an average of $5,500 for a tummy tuck procedure in Canada.
  6. 6. Breasts Breast enlargement is among the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Canada. The average cost of breast augmentation is $4,500. The surgery will increase the size of your breasts but will not enhance the asymmetry of the nipples. Breasts augmentation surgery also brings the breasts closer together and lifts those that droop. Silicone bags that contain saline solution are implanted beneath the breast tissue.
  7. 7. Beauty Products 35 percent of women use one or two products daily, while 17 percent use three or four products a day. Meanwhile, the majority of men (54 percent) don't use a single product when getting ready in the morning. Studies have found that women face sexual prejudice in the market, with companies charging an unjustified markup for products marketed towards females. Women pay $151 billion in extra fees and markups that men don't have to pay.
  8. 8. What does this have to do with Women and Gender Studies? Other than the very clear, unfair messages of not being good enough, being directed at girls & women by the media, we’ve got one word for you.
  9. 9. North American Women spend over $426 Billion dollars a year on beauty products. Let’s take a look at some of the messages we receive throughout our lives that drive us to change ourselves, get surgery, buy products we don’t need, and keep this vicious cycle going…
