Syphilis, lost knowledge, an Indian brick maker and a gentleman's magazine, doctors who operated on Jewish noses, and the terrible effects of aeroplane fuel - this is the story of plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is not a modern phenomenon. It started over 400 years ago with a spate of botched nose jobs, so badly engineered that the nose would fall off if the wind blew too hard. It marked the birth of a whole new obsession - surgeons gradually became entranced with the idea that not only could they fix the body, but now they could even fix our sense of self-esteem.
