Beschreibung

Examines why we consider some cosmetic surgeries to be acceptable and others to be unacceptable and possibly harmful. This book brings fresh perspectives to the promotion of "extreme" makeovers on television, the medicalization of "surgery addiction," the moral and political interrogation that many patients face, and feminist debates on the topic.
