Contemplating about body and technology in modern society, the starting point of our work represents influence of progressive aesthetic surgery technology on human body in theoretical framework of postmodern and feminism. In the context of postmodern we problematize technological maneuvering upon (enhanced) body as an opposition to natural (untouched) body. Using analysis of consumerist aspect of postmodern we refer economic signature of aesthetic processed body and discuss about it as type of social capital. Therefore, we analize postmodern through technological and consumerist paradigm in order to indicate its ambivalent tendencies for body deleting and projecting. Using feminist deliberation on aesthetic surgery we question aesthetic surgery as gender (non)homogenous practice and represent it using theory of social pressure (aesthetic surgery as mean of patriarchal manipulation) and by using theory of self-promotion (aesthetic corrected body as physical capital). Finally, we connect observations of body which is in actual global relation breaking point of technological, policital, gender and many other social interferences, with sociology of body.
