The new edition of "The Face Book: A Consumers Guide to Facial Plastic Surgery" features the latest facial aesthetic trends and treatments with three new chapters on burgeoning office-based procedures, specifically neurotoxins, injectable fillers and non-ablative laser and light therapies. Other additions include full-color before and after photos that accurately portray post-operative results, as well as patient testimonials.
"The publication of 'The Face Book' reflects the Academy's commitment to excellence and education by providing consumers with the tools they need to make responsible decisions when it comes to trusting their face to a facial plastic surgeon," says Dr. Daniel Rousso, president of the AAFPRS. "This new book is outstanding, and will be a great resource for those patients contemplating facial plastic surgery."
Originally printed in 1988, "The Face Book" is the quintessential guide to facial plastic surgery - surgical and non-surgical. Countless readers - patients and surgeons alike - have raved about the informative and helpful content which embodies the publication. In 1998, a second edition was published and the success was unprecedented, with over 30,000 copies sold. Since then, requests for up-to-date material have soared, and positive feedback combined with an unwavering dedication to providing the latest innovations in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery persuaded the AAFPRS to develop the current edition.
