The Atlantic Monthly investigates the field of cosmetic surgery. The investigation reveals that the industry is subject to little regulation. Many of the technological advancements are simply debated among plastic surgeons, and rarely require federal approval. The Atlantic Monthly documents such a debate: Wallace A. Goodstein has developed a new method of liposuction, the most commonly preformed cosmetic procedure in the nation. While some former patients and plastic surgeons allege that he is using a dangerous procedure and is not concerned by complications, little has been done to stop him from performing this operation. (March 1996)
