How To Win in the Youth Game: The Magic of Plastic Surgery
Wagner and Gould
Ah, the fountain of youth! Now available at your local surgeon’s office. Plastic surgery of course is a worthy topic for any health collection, but 1972’s information is probably not going to be a good choice. I did snag this from a university library, so I am assuming that this particular tome fills a collection need somewhere.
For the time, it is actually a pretty good discussion of the surgery and appropriate to a lay audience. They featured quite a few procedures, with before and after photos. Every time I am looking at before or after pictures, even of modern procedures, I usually can’t tell the difference. At least they are not over-selling the fountain of youth possibilities by showing unrealistic results. You will also get a kick out of the prices listed.
Something this old should be immediately taken from a contemporary health collection and moved to an archive if necessary.
Now smile and look pretty!
