In the medical drama television series Nip/Tuck, plastic surgeons asked prospective patients to disclose what they did not like about themselves. Why is this line of questioning sociologically significant?


It forces the realization that people who opt for plastic surgery do not like how they look.

Doctors are normally trained to ask questions that are worded more positively.

The question implies that our bodily representations are who we are.

It assumes that all people are dissatisfied with their bodies.
