Fix by Leslie Margolis

Cameron Beekman's life changed forever when she had a nose job at age 15. No longer Beakface, she's now one of the Beautiful People. Accepted, popular, and glamorous, she's never been happier. Now 18, Cameron has no qualms about going under the knife again, but her decision has angered her parents, despite the fact that her young sister Allie will soon get a nose job herself. Allie has her reservations about the procedure, but when surrounded by her glamorous, model mother, and gorgeous, successful sister, she can't help but wonder...would plastic surgery finally allow her to fit in with her own family?

Scintillating, gritty, and engrossing, Fix poses a simple, yet powerful question to women of today: what exactly is beauty? It's a controversial subject, and Margolis handles it with supreme competence. This is a novel that doesn't choose sides, but instead qualifies each view of cosmetic surgery. It's full of facts and details, delivering a truthful, introspective look at the issue of appearance. Each character's individualism stands out as they must make a decision that will change their lives. Unflinching and riveting, Fix will make you think.

Whatever makes you happy, then go. That's her body she can do whatever she wants to do. If getting a nose job is what makes her happy, no one should ever stop her.

As long as it’s not affecting the persons health there is no problem. The worst thing that she can do if she turn out to be addicted to it, I hope not.

The younger sister in the story is in a compelling situation I guess that's why she wants to have a rhinoplasty too. There are other procedures however like buccal fat removal that is less painful yet could also enhance our facial features.

While an aesthetic or cosmetic plastic surgery may be looked down upon by many, a reconstructive plastic surgery is deemed as acceptable as it involves re grafting of the skin that was lost or damaged due to an accidental injury. While not without its side effects, the positive effects of a plastic surgery can’t be overlooked or ignored despite the fact that these benefits are more psychological than physical.

This seems like a very wonderful book. I am pretty sure that this story gives a lot of lessons. Anyway, plastic surgery is one of the most lucrative procedures in the world of medicine and aesthetics. Plastic surgery has changed the lives of many people, may it be in a reconstructive or aesthetic way. Breast implants Perth have been the most common aesthetic surgery among women.
