Reshaping the Female Body: The Dilemma of Cosmetic Surgery

by

Reshaping the Female Body: The Dilemma of Cosmetic Surgery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Davis argues that, paradoxically, cosmetic surgery can be a way for some women to become embodied subjects who by reshaping their bodies can remake their lives. She cautions against condemning cosmetic surgery as inherently repressive and, therefore, politically incorrect,' arguing instead for an approach which accepts the unease which cosmetic surgery invokes, while taking seriously the reasons of women who see it as their only option under the circumstances. Reshaping the Female Body sees cosmetic surgery as a dilemma: both symptom and solution, oppression and liberation, all in one.

Synopsis:

In Reshaping the Female Body, Kathy Davis argues that cosmetic surgery is less about the beauty system than about how women manipulate the beauty system to meet their own needs.

Synopsis:

Reshaping... looks at women's involvement in cosmetic surgery and raises the question of why women put themselves under the knife for operations which are painful, risky and expensive and often leave them in worse shape than before.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [197]-206) and index.
