This is Dr. Joe's Guide to Cosmetic Surgery--The friendly, essential reference for helping you make the right decision

While most books on cosmetic surgery only emphasize being pretty, Your Body, Your Beauty, Your Safety is the first book to offer an integrated perspective. The book guides the reader through the entire cosmetic surgery experience; from finding the best surgeon to choosing the right procedures, eating the right foods, taking the right nutritional supplements, and getting the most out of visits with a cosmetic surgeon. Hundreds of before and after photos help the reader understand the nuances of a diverse range of procedures.

Most importantly, Your Body, Your Beauty, Your Safety is true to its title by providing a strong safety component. People are desperately looking for an accessible, step-by-step resource for determining which facilities and physicians are safe. Dr. Joe's timely book answers this immediate need with a simple system for sorting it all out. Your Body, Your Beauty, Your Safety promotes informed decision-making about if, when, and how candidates should approach cosmetic procedures and provides powerful tools for ensuring the best possible outcome.
