A New Body in One Day: A Guide to Same-day Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
Since 1991, the popularity of cosmetic surgery has more than doubled. Women visited cosmetic surgeons for more than one million treatments in 1995 alone. But it's not just women who enlist the help of cosmetic surgeons. The percentage of cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased from 10% to 24% since 1980.
These numbers show that there is a need for information about how specific procedures are done, what the recovery is like, and what a patient can realistically expect. The technology has changed so radically in the last few years that for most procedures, hospital stays and general anesthesia are no longer mandatory. This is why this book -- unlike others -- specifically addresses surgeries which are done under local anesthetic in a doctor's office.
The book is organized in a format that makes it easy for readers to locate the information they seek. One can simply look up liposuction for example, and learn about the preparation required, the actual method used, the recovery process, the result on can expect, and the possible complications. Each procedure is addressed and detailed in the same manner, which makes for a simple, easy-to-use reference format. Photographs of actual patients during the various stages of recovery, along with their comments, are included at the end of each procedure chapter.
An easy-to-understand detailed guide to cosmetic surgery procedures that can be done in a doctor's office in one day, under local anesthetic.
