Synopsis This book discusses the most commonly performed cosmetic plastic surgery procedures of the body for men and women, including breast enlargements, breast lifts and reduction, liposuction, and tummy tucks. What makes this book unique is the large number of unretouched before and after photos of actual patients. Most books on plastic surgery rely on drawings to illustrate the effects of the surgical procedures, often giving an unrealistic impression.
In this 320 page book, which includes text, 140 black-and-white photos and 10 drawings, Dr. Engler provides an in-depth discussion of these procedures, as well as general background information.
Chapter headings include "If They're Pretty, You Know They're Smart" (which examines the assumptions people often make on the basis of appearance), "What will the Neighbors Say?" (how to address the changes your body undergoes during the recovery) and "Consequences and Complications." Other chapters discuss the typical Consultation, Anesthesia, Day and Place of Surgery, and Recovery. The five main sections of the book are General Information, Breast Surgery, Liposuction, Tummy Tucks, and Results.
