Body Image Issues... Gee, I Wonder Why

Which is real?
Could the damaging affects of poor body image in women (and, increasingly, in men) have a little something to do with retouched celebrities and models like you see here, here (look at the before/after images), and here?

Fascinating, and scary. Interactive web site with more details about how the picture on the left was produced here.

That's really interesting. I was amused (in kind of a sardonic way, I guess) when I noticed they had to smooth out the fake breast in one of the celebrity before/after photos.
