The Business of Body Enhancement: Does Cosmetic Surgery Really Make You Happier?


From pills that treat erection problems  to cosmetic surgery designed to make you look more youthful, a lot of money today is being spent on the pursuit of beauty. Many companies would have you believe that all of your blemishes and “imperfections” can be magically fixed by a scalpel or pill, and apparently, a lot of us are drinking the kool-aid. In 2009, American men spent more than 1.9 billion dollars on Viagra, and in 2011, nearly 14 million cosmetic surgeries were performed in the states.

People are willing to risk anything for what they think will make them feel beautiful, but this infographic begs the question… is it worth the price?
