Hi, I need help with essay on Argument “The Pitfalls of plastic surgery. Paper must be at least 500 words. Please, no plagiarized work!
Camillie proceeds and says “as cosmetic surgery has become more and more widespread and affordable, it has virtually become a civil right, an equal-opportunity privilege once enjoyed primarily by a moneyed elite who could fly to Brazil for a discreet nip and duck.” This clearly shows that cosmetic surgery is no longer a one class activity but that of anyone who has the finances.
