Of Argentine Women
Argentina imports more silicone implants per capita than any other country in the world - but does the perfection of plastic surgery in Argentina make its women happy?
To be the best at something you have to be obsessed. The French eat better than anybody else because they are obsessed with food. The Americans are the richest people in the world because they are obsessed with money. The English are the most drunken because they are obsessed with booze. Argentine women are the most beautiful because they are obsessed with their looks and use plastic surgery in Argentina to reach their objectives.
La Nacion, the country's most venerable newspaper, published a few years back a list of truths held to be self-evident by the majority of Argentines. One was that an Argentine was not only capable of solving any problem, but of doing so 'with great ingenuity'. Another was that Argentina had the best beef in the world. And a third axiom was that Argentine women were the best-looking on the planet, thanks in part to the expertise of plastic surgery in Argentina.
Ask anyone in Buenos Aires why this should be the case and you will always receive the same self-satisfied answer. 'It's in the genes,' they'll say. 'The mix of nationalities in this country blended together wonderfully when it came to defining the female form.' There has to be something in this. Buenos Aires is the New York of the south. Immigrants poured in at the end of the 19th century and start of the 20th from all over Europe and parts of the Middle East. Italy and Spain provide Argentina's DNA base, but an Argentine born today is just as likely to have smatterings of Jewish, French, Turkish, Polish, English, Russian and Lebanese blood as well.
The difference with New York, perhaps, is that Argentine women work harder on their looks, using plastic surgery in Argentina as a complement to reach their objectives.
Argentine women did not reduce the investments in their looks following the economic issues: within six months of the crash in 2001, a period when spending in supermarkets went down by 40 per cent, plastic surgeons in Argentina - as well as fitness clubs and beauty salons - were all reporting that business was booming again.
And interestingly, this obsession on looks is contagious.
Says a plastic surgeon in Argentina: “I got three women patients who are company presidents,' she says. 'One of them is foreign. When she arrived she looked rather severe. Today, three years on, she is a lot more feminine and sensual. Another example: at the tango club I go to we have a number of French women who come over year after year. And year after year I see their look softening, their hair getting longer...' Coquetry is the essence of it all, she says.
Coquetry with a clear target. 'Men are the audience . Argentine women cannot conceive of life without men.'
Argentine women understand this very well, which is one reason why they are so recklessly unrepressed about going to have plastic surgery in Argentina to have their bodies artificially enhanced. And yet, the question remains, why do they bother, since they are so beautiful in the first place? The answer is that, like their country, they are confused about their identity: are they European, Latin American, or what? And their response to this confusion is to look ravishing. To them, plastic surgery in Argentina is a matter of patriotic duty.
