Cosemetic surgery has become a mainstream treatment. This book covers the range of options for women and men from penile implants to facelifts, liposuction and breast uplifts. It lists the pros and cons of each operation, the cost, how long it takes to recover - and even how to tell your friends. Each section includes real-life accounts from people who have had cosmetic surgery, and there is advice on how to find a reputable surgeon and avoid the cowboys. The book also includes specific names of reliable cosmetic surgeons.
