Model's rib removal is shocking her fans on Instagram

Model Pixee Fox is working on having the thinnest waist in history. To that end, she recently had six ribs removed. Though the surgery is not new, the fact that so many people are watching the model and that it is one of a number of surgeries she's had do make the whole thing a little more public.

The surgery has Fox, who wears a corset all day, every day, roughly 16 inches around. She's hoping to reduce that to 14 inches, thus earning her the distinction of having the world's smallest waist. Prior to this, the record has been 15 inches.

"Getting my ribs removed has always been a dream of mine," says Fox, who is Swedish but now lives in North Carolina. See below:

It's a bit startling, to be sure. This woman has had numerous plastic surgeries to achieve her dream of "looking like a cartoon character," and she is almost there. But at what cost?

The reality is that plastic surgery, in moderation, can help people with self-esteem. A nose job or a boob job can help someone go from feeling bad about themselves to being OK with what they see in the mirror. So where is the problem with that?

It's not the person who has had one or two small things done who has a problem. It's the person who is doing one procedure after another. Before long, plastic surgery can become an addiction, like anything else. The more you change and augment, the more you see what needs to be changed. I am willing to venture a guess that any one of us would have believed Fox to have been beautiful from the start. But it doesn't matter what we think. Only what she thinks.

Beauty modifications are not for us to judge. But that doesn't mean we can't feel sad for her. She is spending a lot of money and time on something that probably isn't going to fix what is truly broken. Nothing any of us do on the outside can fix what we need inside. It's a silly, trite thing to say. But it's also true.
