I first got the idea for this book as I watched my eldest daughter Rosie, who was seven at the time, try on different swimsuits to get ready for her school swimming carnival. She seemed so proud of herself and completely unaware of how she looked. I wondered how long this innocence would last, and my conflicting roles both as a father of 3 daughters and also a plastic surgeon and how I could teach my daughters to be confident in their own skin. 

Once I started writing the book, I had a patient say to me, ‘thank you for making me feel normal’ which seemed a perfect title for a book about body image and development and what is exactly “normal”?

What readers are saying...

Dr. Pouria Moradi's "NORMAL": A Must-Read for Parents of Tweens As a father of four daughters, I highly recommend Dr. Pouria Moradi's debut book "NORMAL." A renowned plastic surgeon in Sydney, Dr. Moradi provides valuable insights on body image issues. The book encourages parents to discuss their children's feelings about their appearance, especially if they face depression or bullying. By acknowledging these feelings as normal, we can help our children feel less alone.

Normal. A Plastic Surgeon's letter to his daughters about body image is THE book every parent and tween/teenage girl should have. It's a thoughtful and factual discussion about body image and the options available to those who are exploring what it means to them..
