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?nbsp; 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.nbsp; 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.nbsp; 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.

·nbsp;Facial rejuvenation including lifts, wrinkle fillers, and peels
·nbsp;Body contouring from liposuction and tummy tucks tonbsp;breast implants, reductions, and lifts
