Fabulous Faces: From Motivation to Transformation Through Facial Plastic Surgery by Peter A. Adamson

Sunday, July 10, 2011
The story of you is written on your face, but that story sometimes strays into fiction, communicating a false message to the world and keeping the true one under wraps. Faces can mask rather than reveal the person -- and the personality -- within.

In ever-increasing numbers, men and women around the world are looking to plastic surgeons to help them discover, or rediscover, their real selves. You may be one of those people.

With the help of true stories from transformed patients, Dr. Peter Adamson provides an intimate glimpse into the experience of plastic surgery. Is it right for you? How do you find a doctor? What surgeries and procedures are available? What can you expect before, during, and after surgery? The answers to all these and more are revealed in Fabulous Faces.

Inside these pages, you ll discover:
* reasons people have plastic surgery -- and reasons not to
* how to find the right doctor for you * skin maintenance secrets -- from face creams to laser beams
* insider information on surgical procedures -- face-lifts, nose jobs, and more
* how to find your real face the one that reflects who you really are

Transforming yourself through plastic surgery is a journey that begins long before the operating room. This is your guidebook to that path.
