The Safe and Sane Guide to Teenage Plastic Surgeryby Frederick N Lukash
Synopses & Reviews
The Safe and Sane Guide to Teenage Plastic Surgery, by Dr. Frederick N. Lukash, is the only complete guide to this ever-expanding phenomenon. Written by the American Society of Plastic Surgerys acknowledged expert and official media spokesperson on pediatric and adolescent plastic surgery, this book answers those tough questions parents of potential teenage plastic surgery candidates have: Will surgery increase their childs self-esteem and help them fit in better? Or is it a dangerously easy solution to deeper issues? When is surgery right, and when is it not?
Interviewed in The New York Times and featured on Discovery Health among many other media outlets, Lukash guides families through every step of the process, from finding the perfect-fit doctor and applying for medical insurance to surgery and finally to recovery and a changed life. A virtual, free consultation with a renowned expert in the field, the book doesnt just offer easy solutions to teens body-image problems but helps parents understand the emotional, psychological and social dilemmas involved.
Complete with action plans, real-life stories and pictures, The Safe and Sane Guide to Teenage Plastic Surgery offers advice on what can, cant and shouldnt be done—and on how to spot the doctors who will exploit a teens fragile sense of self-esteem as well as his or her parents pocketbook. Most important, Lukash provides a useful red light/yellow light/green light guide for considering teen plastic surgery.
