Cosmetic Surgery: A consumer’s guide
As of this writing, this book is still in circulation. I am going to go out on a limb and say this might be out of date. At the time of publication, this book would have been an excellent choice for a public library. There are good descriptions of the surgeries, help in selecting doctors, and a lot of before and after. It is also written in a very factual style that doesn’t glamorize the process or say that it will fix what is wrong in your life. Aside from its age, it is not a bad book.
Last time I was in my dermatologist’s office, they had posters of all sorts of procedures with names like dermaplaning, thermage, cool sculpting, and a bunch more. Many of the descriptions seem kind of vague (at least to me). I can see that a need for some unbiased literature would be a great help.
At my age, the boat has sailed on surgically fixing my cosmetic problems, but I can appreciate that many folks want to get some unvarnished truth about their options in improving how they look and feel. Weed this old book and invest in some up to date resources.
