Rate this:
Each year, thousands of people undergo cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Most will be unaware that 94 per cent of their predecessors experienced physical trauma and 97 per cent suffered from significant emotional distress during the several months following surgery. Based on her experience following her own surgery, the author informs her readers honestly about what patients are likely to go through following treatment. Without heavily criticizing doctors, or discouraging future patients, she describes the levels of discomfort, temporary disfigurement, and powerful psychological reactions that are part of most cosmetic surgery.
