Your Complete Guide to Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is designed to answer all your questions and help you make informed and intelligent choices in the increasingly popular and media-driven world of cosmetic plastic surgery. The authors of the book are all registered plastic surgeons from The New Zealand Foundation for Cosmetic Plastic Surgery who understand the types of questions and concerns you may have. They discuss procedures such as facelifts; eyelid surgery; breast augmentation, reduction and lifts; tummy tucks; liposculpture; ear and nose surgery. It offers advice on: How to choose your surgeon (and check their credentials); Every available surgical procedure with detailed, up-to-date information; Possible risks and complications; What to expect before, during and after surgery. The guide also includes a directory of surgeons who are registered with the Medical Council as plastic surgeons and may have special expertise and training in the area of cosmetic plastic surgery. All of the surgeons listed in the directory hold the qualification of FRACS (or equivalent). The FRACS initials indicate that the surgeon concerned is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
