LOS ANGELES: American society for long has been influenced and fascinated by cosmetic culture. What began with silicon implants has now moved to anti –ageing creams, Botox and several other plastic surgical procedures to look young and beautiful. 

Hollywood, the biggest client of all these cosmetic activities – from Pamela Anderson, Sharon Stone, Dolly Parton, to Joan Collins; from breast augmentation to nose job, to lip-job, one names it and they have done it all.

While no one has really bothered to be baffled by the side effects, the game continues to go on.

But why then the world seems to go gaga over Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy? Let’s not forget that, the actress had been tested positive for breast cancer through a BRCA gene test.

While the actress has had an early detection possible, she had previously lost her mother Marcheline Bertrand who faught ovarian cancer for 8 long years. The actress recently lost her aunt Debbie Martin who also was diagnosed with breast cancer.

In the age of the cosmetic culture luring the world to hide behind the coat of plastic and artificial make-up, Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy just comes as a bold step. The biggest fact however, is that since the BRCA gene test is good enough to detect early signs of cancer, it has proved beneficial in early detection for Angelina Joile.

Rather than going for several chemotherapy sessions, which are painful and will take long for a patient to recover, it is just right in the case of Angelina Jolie to opt for a simpler solution – Double Mastectomy.

The world may be in awe for her looks, but now with that double mastectomy, it will be difficult to say if Angelina Jolie has the crazy fan following behind her. But why don’t we look at the brighter picture?

The mastectomy just increases Angelina Jolie’s life span by a few extra years, considering if she would have opted for the painful chemotherapy otherwise. This means fans, will get to see more of Angelina Jolie on screen.

The second thing is why would an actress of Angelina Jolie’s stature, undergo a procedure which would be career threatening? The fact that Angelina Jolie has done it now, itself signifies the strong conviction and belief that the actress has and her decision to take the bold step is right.

At the end, it is all about personal choices, one could say. And Angelina Jolie had made her choice pretty clear and loud. So there’s nothing more to it.

The actress made an appearance with hubby Brad Pitt during the premiere of ‘World War Z’ and looked stunning as ever. Not once, did life seem different for her.

In an age, where her counterparts have gone two steps ahead and have indulged in the cosmetic act, Angelina Jolie has been bold enough to break the stereotypical American women culture. Quite an inspiration. Take a bow.
