At what price is beauty? One of science fiction's most enduring themes involves a future world where everyone looks perfect but no one is happy. One old "Twilight Zone" episode involves a young woman refusing to select the "model" body in which she'll spend the rest of her life. Another takes place in a hospital ward where doctors struggle to transform the criminally homely. It turns out that these poor creatures are quite glamorous by our standards and the "normal" folks rather repulsive, but the point's the same.

Deepa Bharath Not many would imagine the words "Botox" and "bash" would go together. After all, Botox is the brand name of botulinum toxin, a substance that is injected into facial muscles as an age-defying treatment. It is the most popular method performed to remove wrinkles -- be it laugh lines, frown folds on the forehead or those unsightly bags under the eyes. But Botox parties are gaining popularity among bustling socialites in affluent communities.

As a father of three, I can attest to the fact that children are among life?s greatest treasures, but as far as bringing them into the world is concerned, not much is said on birth announcements about the physical cost to the mother for giving birth. For many women, the initial joy of childbirth is later joined by another emotion: worry, as they realize that many of the changes their bodies went through during pregnancy do not seem to revert back to their normal state. They find themselves confronting stretched and sagging breasts, stomachs with loose and permanently damaged skin, accompanied by weight gain on the hips and thighs.

You make me feel so young. You make me feel like spring is sprung. Wait. Maybe it's just the Botox. Interesting story in these very pages this week. Botox parties have come to the land of the Newport-Mesa. In case Botox doesn't ring a bell, it's short for "botulinum toxin." Still no? OK, let's go back. Botox treatments are a form of cosmetic surgery. In the old days, when one got the urge to nip it, tuck it, lift it, make it bigger, make it smaller or just make it go away, one had to go to a special kind of doctor called a "plastic surgeon" for something called "plastic surgery."

Deepa Bharath NEWPORT BEACH -- Dr. Walter Ledergerber has his own way of staying connected to reality. "It could be hard in my field of expertise sometimes," said the 54-year-old plastic surgeon with a laugh. So occasionally, he picks a patient and performs surgery on him or her for free. It's his way of giving back to the community, said Ledergerber, who has operated his practice at the European Clinic in Newport Beach for 14 years. Several years ago, he helped a 14-year-old boy from Mexico who suffered severe burns.

It’s a new year so maybe you’re thinking about a new you. Probably one of the most dramatic ways you can become a “new you” is through cosmetic surgery. T his week we check in with Newport Beach cosmetic surgeon Dr. H. George Brennan.   OK, you’re a cosmetic surgeon, not a plastic surgeon, per se, right? What’s the difference? It’s a huge difference. What the reader has to understand is that plastic surgery is a broad field that covers all aspects of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

Hi. I want to tell you that the article[s] on girls suffering from eating disorders at Corona and in general in Saturday's Daily Pilot were outstanding. They were informative. They were in depth. They were detailed. They were outstanding. I congratulate you. I think it important that a local newspaper deal with important local issues. The Daily Pilot should do this more often as there are other topics that need more open discussion. Once again, thank you for the excellent article on eating disorders.

How, you may ask, did I end up washing my hands in President Nelson Mandela's bathroom in Groote Schuur, the opulent mansion built by DeBeers founder Cecil Rhodes and now used as the official residence of South African presidents? I wish I could say it was the reward for my efforts to free Mandela from prison at Robben Island but the truth is he was not the main focus of my college-era activism. I barely knew his name back then and he was jailed for reasons I dimly understood. No, my journey to South Africa began when two seemingly unrelated passions of mine converged.
