Is cosmetic surgery merely a 'quick-fix' for problems of low self-esteem and body image? Join the debate!

To contribute on the topic and post on this discussion please email your responses to Jan Kandiyali.
Question for Consideration:Cosmetic surgery is regarded by some as a 'quick fix' for more deep rooted problems of self-esteem and body-image.
