Typical Retouching in Urban Mags

I would say this a good example of standard retouching in urban magazines these days. Notice the following major changes:

1. Wrinkles in neck removed;
2. Breasts slightly augmented;
3. Waist tapered in;
5. Size and shape of butt enhanced significantly.

This is a good example because the "before" picture of the model is not bad at all and this is a pretty modest retouching job - I've seen a lot more extreme. What do think? Is retouching like this hurting the credibility of the industry or is this a necessary evil for good eye candy? Be interested to hear opinions.
