5.0 out of 5 stars Flesh Wounds, 16 Jun 2004
This review is from: Flesh Wounds: The Culture of Cosmetic Surgery (Hardcover)
An excellent book! I read this book as part of dissertation research but a non-academic reader can also enjoy it. Blum presents a very interesting view on the world of cosmetic surgery and its impact on the individual and society. She looks at society's fascination with body transformation and from where it may have developed. She refers to variety of media works to illustrate her ideas.
Blum details the extensive research she carried out for the book and the descriptions of her observation in the operating theatres are thorough and at times unnerving!
As a former cosmetic surgery patient herself she holds the interesting position as a critical reviewer of the practice as well as a former subject.
This is an extremely well written book presenting some interesting ideas.
