Beauty Junkies: Inside Our $15 Billion Obsession With Cosmetic Surgery
An insightful look at the fixation Americans have with not just youth, but also maintaining an idealized, perfected, appearance. The author demonstrates the toll this quest takes and lengths people will go to in order to create a physical image that they think fits them better than what they have and how often this quest never ends. Cosmetic surgery is not just about combating the effects of again, of course; it is also about externalizing one's inner image or trying to create an image that camouflages perceived defects in character, personality, life-style, etc.
