A large part of plastic surgery encompasses cosmetic procedures. Cosmetic surgery has come under attack recently in many different ways, but one particular editorial stands out as the most misguided effort yet. A very young woman felt it necessary to declare that cosmetic treatments should be declared illegal so that she does not have to feel the need to compete with other women for looks. Not much more has to be said other than we are a country of freedom where adults have choice. Choice includes also how we feel and respond to other people’s decisions.
