You are going to be surprised to know that the trend for plastic surgery, – also known as cosmetic surgery and reconstructive aesthetic surgery – is turning out to be a multibillion-dollar business worldwide.
There are supposedly more cosmetic surgeons in some cities, than there are practicing general practitioners, or even medical specialists? Why is this so?
This book is going to tell you all about cosmetic surgery, and why people have some preconceived notions about it. Also, it is going to tell you all about surgical methods, which are practiced by reconstructive aesthetic surgeons – the new terminology for cosmetic surgeons – in order to make you look more youthful, beautiful, or just plain different.
Many people know about one of the scariest socialites in the USA. She has spent $4 million in the past 10 years and more so that she can look more like a cat instead of a human being. Her justification for spending all this money, in spoiling a perfectly once beautiful face and making it look grotesque and weird, is that her multimillionaire husband loves big cats, and she wants to keep him interested in her. So that is why she is looking for that perpetual feline look.
Any woman who can go to these limits in order to keep the fickle interest of Mr. Multi-Bank Accounts is definitely suffering from an infinity complex or she does not have anything constructive to do with her time. But this seems to please her. It also gets her plenty of attention because I think she enjoys the gawking audience staring at her and wondering how one could prefer to look so ugly. Especially when some of her surgical procedures made certain that she did not need a costume on Halloween in order to scare the kiddies.
So, here we come to these points – do you really need plastic surgery? What are the psychological aspects of this surgery on the psyche of a human being? What is the difference between cosmetic and plastic surgery?
This book is going to tell you all about reconstructive plastic surgery, and its steadily gaining importance in the life and times of beauty obsessed human beings.
Cosmetic surgery has become such a booming business, just because of good PR. The demand for some people to look like a popular concept of beauty is being encouraged by media people, as well as the surgeons themselves, so that more and more people go in for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Focusing on comprehensive, precise and teaching information, this text atlas is highly instructive.

Americans are aging faster and getting fatter than any other population on the planet. At the same time, our popular notions of perfect beauty have become so strict it seems even Barbie wouldn’t have a chance of making it into the local beauty pageant.
Aging may be a natural fact of life, but for a growing number of Americans its hallmarks—wrinkles, love handles, jiggling flesh—are seen as obstacles to be conquered on the path to lasting, flawless beauty. In Beauty Junkies Alex Kuczynski, whose sly wit and fearless reporting in the Times has won her fans across the country, delivers a fresh and irresistible look at America's increasingly desperate pursuit of ultimate beauty by any means necessary.
From a group of high-maintenance New York City women who devote themselves to preserving their looks twenty-four hours a day, to a “surgery safari” in South Africa complete with “after” photographs of magically rejuvenated patients posing with wild animals, to a podiatrist's office in Manhattan where a “foot face-lift” provides women with the right fit for their $700 Jimmy Choos, Kuczynski portrays the all-American quest for self-transformation in all its extremes. In New York, lawyers become Botox junkies in an effort to remain poker-faced. In Los Angeles, women of an uncertain age nip and tuck their most private areas, so that every inch of their bodies is as taut as their lifted faces. Across the country, young women graduating from high school receive gifts of breast implants – from their parents.
As medicine and technology stretch the boundaries of biology, Kuczynski asks whether cosmetic surgery might even be part of human evolution, a kind of cosmetic survival of the fittest – or firmest? With incomparable portraits of obsessive patients and the equally obsessed doctors who cater to their dreams, Beauty Junkies examines the hype, the hope, and the questionable ethics surrounding the advent of each new miraculous technique. Lively and entertaining, thought-provoking and disturbing, Beauty Junkies is destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the season.
