Since 1997, plastic surgery procedures have increased 40 percent. The growing trend in cosmetic facial surgery shows no signs of declining. And, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, an improving economy will mean more Americans are willing to invest in their appearance by undergoing cosmetic surgical procedures.
In Your Complete Guide to Cosmetic Facial Surgery, three experienced facial plastic surgeons explain, step-by-step, what you can expect from the most popular cosmetic facial surgery procedures: facelifts, brow lifts, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), wrinkle fillers, cheek and chin implants, lip augmentation, and skin resurfacing.
The authors cover such topics as: who's a candidate for surgery, finding the right doctor, having realistic expectations from surgery, what to expect before, during, and after the procedure, and potential risks and complications.
Your Complete Guide to Cosmetic Facial Surgery contains 75 "before and after" photos of the authors' patients who have had facial cosmetic surgery.
