MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Plastic surgery has historically been used when medically necessary - for example, on burn or accident victims, and those born with cleft palates - or to repair extreme cases of cosmetic disfigurement, such as nose surgeries in India to fix amputations previously performed as a punishment for adulterous men. In today's society, however, plastic surgery has become a common option for those seeking to modify their normal and uninjured bodies to conform to an unrealistic, idealized model of perfection. This book presents a fascinating history of how original therapeutic techniques were adapted to offer cosmetic changes to patients without disfiguring bodily changes. The second section of "Plastic Surgery" details the medical techniques and choices currently available, while the third part offers unbiased resources to potential plastic surgery patients.
