Confessions of a Plastic Surgeon

Original title: Confesiones de una cirujana plástica
Category: Non-Fiction
Synopsis:

Why we go under the knife.

 

A plastic surgeon bares all to offer a fresh analysis of what goes on in consultation rooms as well as the red lines within the profession and where the boundaries lie between ethics and aesthetics.

Pressure from social media and the image-centric era we live in has led to more people getting plastic surgery at ever younger ages, from rhinoplasties to breast implants to liposuction. Is it just a passing trend, or has cosmetic surgery become the new normal?

In this book, surgeon Maritina Martínez Lara demystifies and destigmatises the debates surrounding the causes and effects of the recent boom in plastic surgery. She discusses how the grey areas that characterise her field are defined not just by the desire to modify parts of our bodies, but also by our relationship with image, self-esteem and the constant demands of society. Are beauty norms necessary? Can we escape them? Is image everything? What ever happened to aging?

Confessions of a Plastic Surgeon advocates for a healthier relationship with our bodies, accepting their uniqueness and diversity, while helping the reader understand cosmetic surgery in a way that respects different bodies and styles of beauty.
