To the Editor: It was most enlightening to read the articles on cosmetic surgery in the 17 June 2002 issue of the Journal. In particular, the Clinical Update by Castle et al on psychosocial wellbeing and cosmetic surgery1 is pertinent to everyday practice. The warning given that cosmetic specialists should be concerned about patients who have had numerous procedures, in particular patients who have previously sued physicians, is a poignant one.
