BEFORE DECIDE ON A COSMETIC SURGERY OR PROCEDURE BUY AND READ THIS BOOK. This is an AMAZING book for those who are planning a cosmetic procedure or not. It also explains minors cosmetic non invasive procedures like microdermabrasion, fillers, Thermage, Venus freeze and also risks involved. The explanations are clear, in simple vocabulary so anyone can understand them. I HIGHLY recommend this book because many doctors promote their clinics and procedures on the web, but not give specific orientation on what you are going to experiment through the procedure and real expectations. You are prompted to decide on usually very expensive procedure, false expectations are created and finally many do not accept responsibility for what they have done. It explains also how everything works: first an expensive machine is placed in the doctor's office, then comes the media tour through the most watched programs promoting for example Venus Freeze or Thermage and the great results you can experiment. Then a lot of people go to the doctor's office for a Thermage for example and then you can find on the web a lot of problems that caused that procedure to the people. There are honest doctors, but be careful. Check also of the web for example Thermage gone bad and you are going to find the testimony of a lot of people that have their face worst than before the procedure. Everything is very well explained and the author also writes about fraud.

OK so what else did I know. Nothing new or revealing about this book. But still a nice compendium of useful advice.

I was looking forward to reading this book. If you are looking for general information on all procedures then you found it. I was disappointed with lack of specific information and the pictures. You can easily find the broad knowledge presented in this book on the Internet. I wouldn't recommend this to someone is trying to research a particular procedure they are interested in.

What a great book. I was seriously considering a facelift, but have opted to continue using my prescription retin A every night
Instead. I can already see a difference. Thanks to this book for explaining in understandable English what the procedure entails, and recommending to the author's patients that they use retin A every night.

I should have checked the copyright date. This book is over 10 years old. Much has changed.

Haven't had a chance to read this yet, but I'm pretty positive it will answer all the questions I'm looking for for the surgeries I want.

Recommended to three types of readers:

(a) People considering having cosmetic surgery.

(b) People with loved ones considering or have received cosmetic surgery.

(b) People purely curious about cosmetic surgery.

The first few chapters describe medical training (e.g., board certification), health care environments (e.g., office vs. hospital), and patient qualifications (e.g., as healthy as possible). These chapters emphasize the importance of choosing an appropriate medical team. If the logic does not convince you, then the scary monochrome and color photographs will.

The remaining chapters explain various treatments, such as face-lifting and liposuction. Questions such as: Will there be pain? Will my skin turn red, and if so, for how long? How much will it cost? are answered candidly.

The book will help you become an informed patient, or a loved one of a patient.
Very well organized, direct and easy to read. Describes how to pick a reputable surgeon, explains procedures, what to expect and includes pitfals to procedures. Lots of before after pictures. The author does a great job at presenting the information.
