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

surgeons
Following the second Beauty Demands workshop, ‘Professionals, Practitioners and Beauty Norms’, we asked participants to consider the complex relationship between cosmetic surgery, self-esteem and body-image. 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. How far do you agree with this assessment of elective cosmetic surgery? If surgery is undertaken for reasons of self-esteem and/or body image do you think this is problematic?
