Summary Cosmetic surgery has become the subject of intense media and public interest in the last few years. It is unique amongst the surgical specialties in that prospective patients are directly targeted by advertising, and often, through the use of aggressive sales and marketing techniques. For the general public and potential patients, understanding the procedures and accessing high-quality care is problematic, and independent professional advice from an appropriately trained andexperienced doctor is essential. This advice should include a realistic assessment of the benefits and complications of any treatment. This book provides a clear and informative guide to cosmetic surgery and an overview of the range of procedures now available. The book also features an explanation of what makes a well-trained cosmetic surgeon and how to choose one. Individual chapters are devoted to specific procedures including facelifting, breast surgery, eyelid and chin lifts, liposuction, lasers/peels, botox and fillers and abdominoplasty.
