I had an appointment with a dermatologist, and as it had turned out, practically every one of them in this vain town is also a self-proclaimed wizard in plastic surgery. 'Oh, this will be fun', I thought, 'I know exactly what will happen.'
A recent study published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery made some headlines with "surprising" results of one surgeon's cosmetic rejuvenative surgical procedures and how they made almost no impact on the patients' attractiveness and minimal impact on how youthful they looked.
When my friend decided to have plastic surgery on her face and breasts, I couldn't hide my shock. I was caught off guard -- she had always been one of those cute, perky moms, dressed in the latest trend.
