cosmetic operations
see cosmetic surgery (below).
cosmetic shell
an artificial device, molded in the shape of a phthisic globe, and permanently placed over that globe to produce an improved appearance.
cosmetic surgery
surgery carried out purely to enhance the appearance of the animal. When it is for the purpose of enhancing or disguising its appearance in the show ring, this is considered unethical. The animal is not in a position to judge or to express an opinion and the question of beauty is adjudicated by the owner. Because animal fashions have sometimes tended to the bizarre there has been a marked turn in public opinion against cosmetic operations which are seen by some as unwarranted mutilations.
