Cosmetic Surgery Today

Thieme, 2005 - 207 páginas
For millennia, men and women have turned to surgical and cosmetic aids in the pursuit of well-being through physical beauty. Indeed, many of the procedures performed by today's aesthetic plastic surgeons have their origins in places and cultures as remote as ancient Egypt and Rome. Never before, however, has aesthetic plastic surgery been so safe, so affordable, and unfortunately, so fraught with risk and misinformation. It can be overwhelming, if not impossible, to obtain accurate, unbiased information about this rapidly changing field.
In Cosmetic Surgery Today, one of Europe's leading plastic surgeons shares valuable insider's knowledge and offers advice gathered over decades in practice.
Written with candor and compassion, Cosmetic Surgery Today presents clear descriptions of the latest techniques, including face lifting, nose correction, liposuction, breast augmentation, reconstructive surgery, procedures specifically for male patients, hair transplantation, and many more. Before-and-after photos show clearly what is involved in each procedure.
Cosmetic Surgery Today provides the background necessary for an intelligent, informed discussion about aesthetic surgery that will interest not only medical professionals from various fields, but also potential patients, journalists, stylists, make-up artists, and anyone interested in this field.

Página 186 - Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them ; Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun And descant on mine own deformity : And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover, To entertain these fair well-spoken days, I am determined to prove a villain 30 And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
Página 200 - And on that cheek, and o'er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent ! THE HARP THE MONARCH MINSTREL SWEPT.
Página 86 - Women are everywhere conscious of the value of their own beauty ; and when they have the means, they take more delight in decorating themselves with all sorts of ornaments than do men.

Página 197 - After all, though, what difference would it make? Beauty is all very well at first sight; but who ever looks at it when it has been in the house three days?
Página 86 - They borrow the plumes of male birds, with which nature has decked this sex in order to charm the females. As women have long been selected for beauty, it is not surprising that some of their successive variations should have been transmitted exclusively to the same sex ; consequently that they should have transmitted beauty in a somewhat higher degree to their female than to their male offspring, and thus have become more beautiful, according to general opinion, than men.
