Watch out for “lots of inspiring stories in the next 6 to 12 months about successful surgeries that helped so many people live more fulfilling lives” says a blogger for the Huffington Post, with sarcasm.

Responding to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and their plans to promote positive media coverage, the post is warning its readers to guard themselves against “mind-bending” stories that might “soften you up” and interfere with your ability to make a rational decision.

Not only would I like to believe that people are smarter than that, but also that the Academy only seeks to counterbalance the disproportionate volume of negative (even absurd) press regarding plastic surgery – the type of journalism that you can regularly find on the Huffington Post. It seems that much of the time, the success stories of plastic surgery get lost amid the sensationalized commentary about celebrities and their complications/addictions.
