Mapping Cosmetic Surgery Tourism - Ruth Holliday


At our most recent workshop, Professor Ruth Holliday (University of Leeds) discussed her work on the project 'Sun, Sea, Sand & Silicone'. In this video, Ruth and her colleague Dr David Bell talk about the trend for travelling abroad for cosmetic surgery, the reasons that motivate individuals to take such action and the factors which influence their choices with regards to issues such as selection of  a surgeon.


For further details on the project, or to read the final report, visit the Sun, Sea, Sand and Silicone website.
