The Ethics of Making the Body Beautiful: Is Cosmetic Surgery Always a Good Thing?

Panel Discussion

Is Cosmetic Surgery Always a Good Thing? Fifty-six percent of women and 43 percent of men are reported to be dissatisfied with their

overall physical appearance. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of cosmetic surgery procedures

performed in the United States and Canada has risen dramatically. Several types of plastic surgery have seen the most significant

increase. How should we evaluate this development from an ethical perspective? Does cosmetic surgery lead to higher self-esteem or

are there good reasons to be skeptical?
