Overview

This is the first book to tell the reader what surgeons cannot tell their patients--what it is really like to undergo cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons acknowledge the difficulty of fully informing patients about the range of emotions and physical experiences that can occur days, months and even years after cosmetic surgery. This book offers a realistic picture of who seeks surgery and why, the impact of various operations on body image, social taboos and the reactions of spouses and others, the doctor-patient relationship, and the factors that determine whether a patient is likely to experience the outcome as good or bad. The book details the experiences of patients who have had cosmetic surgery, mostly with positive outcomes. It helps readers make informed decisions about whether to proceed with their own surgery.
