Well done to the author, Grace W., for composing an interesting article. As a surgeon working in the field of cosmetic surgery, and with a background in reconstructive and restorative surgery, I can assure you that there is far more ‘depth’ than meets the eye (excuse the pun), as described in this article.
Of course, this article is, by definition, one of opinion; and research findings as well as, indeed, other opinions, differ – and such is key for improving matters in this world. However, I do, quite emphatically, suggest that it is naive to simply equate Asian plastic surgery with gender inequalities; and I, accordingly, counsel readers to scrutinize a few of the author’s statements, more carefully.
