Your Guide To Cosmetic Surgery Book Review


A review by Ed Byron, Director – The MEDICAL REGISTER of AUSTRALIA

Maybe this book should have been called ‘HOW TO GO BACK TO THE FUTURE’.

Demystifying cosmetic surgery, this book explores the ins and outs of facial and body enhancement also anti-aging techniques from the hottest procedures to the newest minimally invasive treatments. The book is based on Dr. Hodgkinson’s professional experience based on scientific findings and medical research. The book covers everything from his approach in maintaining natural-looking beauty and the importance of balance. Dr Hodgkinson also discusses the cosmetic-surgery differences between men and women.

Through easy to read and understand text, helpful analogies, descriptive before and after photos of his patients, Dr. Hodgkinson shares his unique knowledge of the face and body,  to help readers understand the truth about the latest procedures available to improve the inevitable signs of aging.

This book is a wonderful, well-written guide that, if nothing else, emphasizes how much a consumer needs to read just such a book BEFORE making any kind of decision about procedures. Reading this book will enable you to ask the right questions and choose the best surgeon and procedure for you.

Cosmetic surgery is no longer limited to celebrities and wealthy socialites. It has become mainstream in recent years, thanks to TV shows like “Botched” and “Extreme Makeover,” as well as infomercial ads promoting the latest age-defying cosmetic products.

These days, though, instead of just joking about cosmetic surgery, some men are having it done — and not just out of vanity. In a harsh job market, they think that the appearance of youth and vitality will give them a career edge, so they are heading to the plastic surgeon to remove the puffiness from their eyes or to fix their sagging chins. ”I did it, not to achieve an end, but a beginning,” said one happy participant.

Men want to obtain a professional edge and achieve a look that has eluded them, even if they eat healthy and exercise, ”You cannot exercise puffy eyelids away.” An exhausted appearance can be disastrous if business colleagues misconstrue it as disinterest, he said. After the procedure, he said, people remarked about how well he looked but could not put their finger on why.

As Dr Hodgkinson says “Cosmetic Surgery is an instrument in which he has changed people’s lives in many ways, and this will continue to increase well into the next generation.

This book gives an insight into the remarkable results that can be achieved by Dr Hodgkinson.
