To the Editor: Cosmetic surgery has grown in appeal over the past few years, and more and more procedures are being performed. However, the literature on attitudes towards cosmetic surgery is scant. Here, we report the results of a cross-sectional study that assessed Australian university students’ attitudes towards, and experiences of, cosmetic surgery.
