KDAF-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
31-year-old Zach Middleton is like almost everyone—concerned about how they look and how their looks make them feel. A photograph from late 2009 captured something that Zach didn't like when he looked in the mirror.

Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
James S. Fell wrote in the Los Angeles Times, "I don't have anything against cosmetic surgery. No amount of running or iron pumping was going to do anything about the genetically programmed dark circles under my eyes, so I got those things zapped with a nuclear-powered laser that made me twitch and fidget in the chair.
