Description
Cosmetic surgery is now an $80 billion industry, thanks to aging Baby Boomers and new medical advances. With less time in the operating room, less scarring, less risk, and less cost, cosmetic surgery is clearly not just for the rich and famous anymore. Alan Gaynor has led the way in cosmetic surgery, perfecting new "bloodless" laser techniques and refining liposculpture methods. On the highest rated "Geraldo" episode ever, Gaynor removed Rivera's forehead lines, bringing cosmetic surgery out in the open once and for all. Now Gaynor offers the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject, with advice about risks and side effects; recovery time; finding the perfect doctor; the psychology of decision making; international advances; home treatments, including vitamins and Retin-A; and the concept of beauty in general. Gaynor also includes step-by-step descriptions of common procedures, tips on preparing for your day of surgery, a dictionary of medical terms, and dramatic before-and-after photographs with patient stories. In three additional chapters, a trio of the world's top surgeons--all Gaynor's mentors--share the latest information on their specialized fields: Dr. Luiz Toledo, Dr. Ivo Pitungay, and Dr. Jacques Ohana. As one of the foremost authorities on cosmetic surgery, Gaynor has garnered a coast-to-coast following. Now anyone even thinking of committing to a nip or a tuck can pore over his widely sought-after advice.
