The Teen Face Book
American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
These kids on the cover look familiar. Isn’t that one girl from Family Ties?
Anyway, what bothers me is this is a book aimed at teens and seems to be full of lots of information on how you as a teenager can fix your face problems with plastic surgery. Parents hate you? Can’t get a date? The answer is a “little bit of work!”
Although this book contains some information on acne treatment and healthy skin, the second half of the book is all about the plastic surgery. Not sure I believe we should be telling teens that plastic surgery will fix the all the problems they are having with life–especially with medical data from 1989. Short answer: a more balanced attitude about cosmetic surgery and something within the last 5 years would be more appropriate. Definitely a weeder!
