Undo-plasty: Another Look at Cosmetic Surgery

The newest cosmetic surgery doesn't slim, enhance, or reduce; it reverses. This procedure, dubbed "undo-plasty," is aimed at reversing a previous surgery to restore the feature to its original condition.

This is gaining popularity because of an all-too-common side effect of plastic surgery: regret. In fact, Dr. Andrew Jacono, chief of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y., says that as many as one in two to three procedures he does nowadays are undo-plasties, known as "revision surgeries" to the medical community.

This backlash could be a result of people not considering the psychological consequences of altering their appearance before going under the knife. What do you think? Will the undo-plasty make people think more carefully about getting a cosmetic procedure, or allow them to be more reckless by offering a "return-policy"?

This is sad. We should learn to live with the body we were born with or use other measures to get results.

I'm all for people having a way to fix bad plastic surgery so that they don't have to live with the hideous consequences, but most bad plastic surgeries result from a combination of misguided patients and incompetent and/or unscrupulous doctors, and this "return policy"--well said!--is just going to encourage that.
