In March, 1986, a 33-year-old Los Angeles woman had rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job. She was pleased with the results--so pleased, in fact, that in June she had liposuction, a surgical procedure to remove excess body fat. In October, she had breast-reduction surgery. Two months later she asked her doctor to augment her new, smaller breasts. But the surgeon turned her down and suggested instead that she consult a psychiatrist.

About the same time, another Los Angeles woman, who had had an eye lift, a face lift, a chemical peel and collagen implants (to smooth a pockmarked complexion), a breast lift and rhinoplasty before she turned 40, urged her 17-year-old daughter to get a nose job and liposuction. But the girl didn't appear to need or want the surgery. Their doctor refused to operate and recommended counseling for the mother.

Both women could be called scalpel slaves. Doctors first began noticing the syndrome in Los Angeles, New York City and Miami. The problem has since surfaced in Chicago, Dallas and other areas where incomes are high. It is an emotional addiction to plastic surgery, characterized by an obsession with appearance that leads from one operating room to another.

In the late '70s, the public first became aware of anorexia nervosa and bulimia, afflictions associated with the pursuit of physical "perfection." Now that quest is leading to the operating table.

Like these eating disorders, obsessive dependency on cosmetic surgery most often occurs among women, according to Dr. Richard Ellenbogen, a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon. "They get an emotional lift from the first surgery, " he says. "They think that subsequent procedures will result in the same high. They want to improve their lives, not just their appearance. It doesn't work that way."

Ellenbogen says that even doctors with many years of experience don't always recognize an emotional problem behind the desire for cosmetic surgery. "I start recognizing danger signals when the patient comes back a third time requesting another procedure. Unfortunately, when a doctor says no and suggests psychiatric help, the obsessed patient usually rejects the advice and finds another doctor who \o7 will\f7 perform the surgery."

Plastic Surgeon for Breast Augmentation

I am looking for some help picking a Plastic Surgeon. I am currently set up for my surgery though Luna Cosmetics, but do not feel comfortable with them.
I was wondering if any of you ladys have heard good or bad things about Surgeons in the Michigan area. Even if you happen to know of a good website where I can find reviews of the Surgeons. I can't seem to find one myself.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
