As the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue was hitting news stands and subscribers’ mailboxes this week, a former SI Swimsuit model was making news. An un-retouched photograph of supermodel Cindy Crawford leaked onto the Web through Twitter. This photo of the 48-year-old beauty caused much discussion and debate about the use of Photoshop to alter what women’s bodies really look like in magazines and on television.

The photo of the un-retouched Cindy Crawford (see photo below) was originally said to be published in the April spread in the magazine Marie Claire. Many women have applauded Cindy Crawford for going against conventional wisdom and allowing her “raw photograph” to be published to show her actual body without any editing software technology. However will not be published in the magazine and it was actually a leaked photo from a 2013 photo shoot with Crawford.

Digital manipulation software like Photoshop might alter women’s bodies for a photograph, but it doesn’t actually change the skin, shape, curves or contours of the woman. A truly gifted cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Michael W. Gray of the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa uses his artistic talent to permanently improve women’s looks.

You’ll be the envy of your friends.

With or without Photoshop, Cindy Crawford is naturally beautiful and that’s why she’s had a successful career as a model.
