Straight Talk about Cosmetic Surgery Book Review
by Kathleen Lisson, CMT, CLT
In San Diego, we have access to plastic surgeons right in our own backyard and cosmetic surgeons from Tijuana to Beverly Hills are both only a short drive away. How can we choose the best surgeon for liposuction, tummy tuck or a facelift?
Straight Talk about Cosmetic Surgery is a classic among cosmetic surgery books for prospective patients, appearing in the Library Journal’s top 23 health books for 2007. Dr. Perry gives clear, logical, no-nonsense advice for how to choose a surgeon as well as overviews of the history and current practice of several different types of surgeries including liposuction, abdominoplasty / tummy tuck, and facelifts. Reading chapter two, The Cosmetic Surgery Consultation got me hooked into reading the entire book because of Dr. Perry’s clear advice on choosing a plastic surgeon and what to look for during the initial consultation.
