This volume examines how today's standards of attractiveness and plastic surgery techniques have changed in light of multicultural and global influences. Essays are arranged in a sequence of for-or-against viewpoints that will allow readers to activate their critical thinking skills. Across four chapters, readers will evaluate how beauty standards are established, the impact that ideals of beauty have on society, whether people should strive for beauty, and the impact that the beauty and fashion industries have on society.
