* Pretty much the whole point of ''Series/NipTuck''. The main characters are two plastic surgeons, and pretty much all of their patients are shown living more fulfilling lives after their surgeries. Although it's not just purely minor imperfections that people gripe about, they also do pro bono procedures on severely disfigured individuals.

But of course, it's also shown as an inherently obsessive pursuit.

* In ''YoSoyBettyLaFea'', the eponymous ugly character, Beatriz "Betty" Pinzon, is unlucky to be an ugly girl in the world of fashion. Despite being the most intelligent woman in the show, she was constantly mistreated by most people just because of her looks. Her ugliness was a daily hardship she had to face from the beginning. Not to mention nobody wanted to hire her because of being ugly. She wanted to be beautiful because she fell in love with her handsome boss, Armando, ''and'' because she had self esteem problems. She actually had a "makeover"; however, contrary to the typical makeovers in Hollywood, this makeover didn't make her BeautifulAllAlong... her new image reflected [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome how more much more confident of herself she had become despite being as ugly as always]].

* Played for laughs in ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' where a woman uses the [[JackassGenie Wishing Dolly]] to become beautiful, only to find that she now looks so fancy that [[CantHaveSexEver no one will agree to have sex with her because they all think she's too good for them]].

* This is the main motivation of ''Manga/{{Kasane}}'''s title character (who can steal people's faces with a magic lipstick). Not just to be pleasant to the eye, but because it makes social interaction infinitely easier for her, and also because there is no way she could achieve her dream of being a stage actress with her face. She likes the thrill of being one of the "beautiful people" so much she's quite literally addicted to it, like a drug.

* In Creator/BruceCoville's book ''Jennifer Murdley's Toad'' (part of the ''Literature/MagicShop'' series), the lead character is a truly unattractive young girl. At one point when she was younger she saw a commercial for {{Franchise/Barbie}} on TV and started crying. Subverted at the end of the novel, when [[spoiler:Jennifer is shown a magical image in a mirror of how the witch can make her beautiful. All she has to do is hand over the magic toad. She destroys all of the mirrors, knowing she can never be that girl]].

* Daisy of BittersweetCandyBowl is jealous of the male attention that Tess and Lucy receive, and assumes it is because she isn't as physically attractive as her friends. When a boy finally pays attention to her, she is happy even though he is a jerk - and [[spoiler: even after he (seemingly) tries to rape her, she still has feelings for him, though she is smart enough to stay away from him.]]
