Knifed Up
Plastic surgery has emerged among white women as a means to achieve a standard of beauty made famous by America’s first Barbie Doll in 1959 and echoed throughout Hollywood’s most elite. Now, as pop culture remains oversaturated with these manufactured ideas of beauty, even African American women are susceptible to the repercussions of this ill-fated delirium. Knifed Up: The Evolution of Cosmetic Surgery explores the underlying causes and influences of the sudden growth in popularity among African Americans in recent years. While African American women are going to these great lengths to obtain what they deem to be the “ideal” body, could they be compromising their overall health and with that, the health and perception of the entire black community?

Or could even the ideal body type be so contrived that in reality it is simply unachievable? These questions and more will be answered in this in-depth examination of what happens when African Americans get Knifed Up.
