You Should Not Have to Feel Bad About Wanting to Look Good

“After fifteen years as a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. James C. Marotta has repeatedly heard patients express shame and guilt about wanting to change their appearance. They second-guess themselves and worry about seeming superficial. They’re afraid of being judged by friends and family. If you’re considering plastic surgery, you’re probably experiencing the same tumultuous emotions.

You’re Not a Vanity Purchase offers a deep dive into history, sociology, and psychology to show why plastic surgery is a form of empowerment, not pride. The drive to look good is about far more than vanity. It’s about being psychologically healthy, fulfilled, and confident. Using extensive research and case studies, Dr. Marotta offers support and teaches you how to ditch the guilt. Don’t listen to the naysayers. Changing your appearance can change your life.
