Should I Be Surprised?

Given the overemphasis put on women's appearances and the continual erosion of their confidence from the hypersexualization of base products due to the capitalist culture, should I really be surprised by the following news. From Ananova:

Breast enlargements are now the most common graduation gift for girls who pass their secondary school exams in Italy.
This all strikes me as putting values in the wrong place. These girls are on their way to university. They can make huge advances in their lives, but they want fake boobs? I don't get it, but this might come from being a man who has only had his psyche shattered because he's not cut enough, not because his breasts aren't large enough or body slim enough. Yes, capitalism is a wonderful thing.
