Dubious Equalities and Embodied Differences: Cultural Studies on Cosmetic Surgery By Kathy Davis
English | February 11, 2003 | ISBN-10: 0742514218 | 176 pages | PDF | 9.2 Mb

Dubious Equalities and Embodied Differences considers how cosmetic surgery is taken up in representations of cosmetic surgery in medical discourse and in popular culture, drawing on a wide range of cultural manifestations including televised 'infotainment,' popular music, performance art, surgeon biographies, stories of patients, public debates, and medical texts. Davis critically engages with the notion of cosmetic surgery as a neutral technology and shows how it is implicated in the surgical erasure of embodied difference.

Virginia L. Blum - Flesh Wounds: The Culture of Cosmetic Surgery.
University of California Press | 2003 | ISBN: 0520901584 | 369 pages | PDF | 2.26 MB

When did cosmetic surgery become a common practice, the stuff of everyday conversation? In a work that combines a provocative ethnography of plastic surgery and a penetrating analysis of beauty and feminism, Virginia L. Blum searches out the social conditions and imperatives that have made ours a culture of cosmetic surgery. From diverse viewpoints, ranging from cosmetic surgery patient to feminist cultural critic, she looks into the realities and fantasies that have made physical malleability an essential part of our modern-day identity.

As face lifts and tummy tucks become increasingly affordable to middle-class Americans, Blum argues, even those who have never considered the knife cannot escape cosmetic surgery's implications and its pervasive promotion by everyone from doctors to those who play them on TV.
