Laurence Kirwan

Cutting Edge


Cutting Edge is the most candid and controversial book on cosmetic plastic surgery ever to be published.

Laurence Kirwan is not only a world famous cosmetic surgeon, operating on patients each side of the Atlantic, he is also an established media pundit on the subject. Billed by Tatler magazine as “Top Surgeon” – one of 13 worldwide – he is at the cutting edge of his profession.

The book explodes many common preconceptions and includes the unadorned low down on:

  • Who in the public eye has had what done and with what success
  • What the cosmetic industry giants do not want you, the consumer to know
  • Which mainstream products are useless and what does work
  • Why and how celebrities appear to be perennially beautiful
  • How we can all compete on the looks stakes
  • Procedures, costs, nutrition, lifestyle and related products

The book explores the relationship between our perception of beauty and the media and offers a philosophy for living in this self-obsessed age.
Above all, it is a celebration of beauty in all its imperfections, asymmetries and humanness and the choices we make as individuals.
