The public’s recent exuberance toward cosmetic surgery has
spurred an unprecedented demand for appearance-changing
procedures. But how can an average consumer discern the hype
from solid truth? Which of the many treatments available
can fulfill the promise of a more youthful look, or more
beautiful skin, or a more pleasing body shape? Which
procedures don’t work at all?
In this up-to-the-minute guide, Dr. Arthur W. Perry, a
practicing plastic surgeon for more than two decades,
examines in close detail each of today’s surgical and
nonsurgical procedures. In everyday language, aided by more
than a hundred illustrations, he assesses the benefits and
potential complications of legitimate treatments. He also
identifies and frankly discusses ineffective treatments. Dr.
Perry’s empowering book guides you through the seductive and
somewhat slick world of cosmetic surgery. He offers
criteria for selecting good doctors and facilities. In
short, he has written an essential book for anyone who is
contemplating cosmetic surgery or other skin-care procedures.
Includes expert advice on:
· Facial rejuvenation including lifts, wrinkle fillers, and
· Body contouring from liposuction and tummy tucks to breast
implants, reductions, and lifts
· Botox and laser treatments
· Avoiding fraud and procedures that don’t work
· And much more
