Fans of TV series Nip/Tuck may think they know all there is to know about the world of silicone implants and brow lifts but there’s so much more than all the glitz and glamour on the small screen. Thinking about getting some work done?Something lifted, smoothed or tightened?
Then this is the book for you. Your Complete Guide to Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is the only authorised, expert guide to cosmetic plastic surgery in New Zealand.
With the popularity of TV programmes like Extreme Makeover and the growing market for medical tourism, it seems Kiwis are embracing the concept of personal panel beating.
While TV glamourises cosmetic surgery, this book presents the real facts and tries to answer any question the potential patient might have — from likely scarring to recovery times.
You’ll also get advice on how to find the right surgeon for you, possible risks and complications and what to do before and after surgery.
