About this book

This book examines British and American women's narratives of cosmetic surgery, exploring what those narratives say about the contemporary status of cosmetic surgery and 'local' ideas about its legitimate and illegitimate uses.

Reviews

"Cosmetic Surgery Narratives is an excellent addition to a body of work that moves beyond the structure versus agency debates that have previously dominated feminist discussions of cosmetic surgery, drawing attention to an area that warrants further interest and research." - Feminist Review
