Nefertiti's Secret by San Francisco Bay Area plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Jacobs explains how he drew cutting-edge medicine from a millennia-old papyrus

SAN FRANCISCO, May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Though Nefertiti's Secret—a book by nationally renowned San

Francisco Bay Area-based plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Jacobs—has been available via Amazon since April 2019, the author is officially celebrating its publication with a launch party scheduled for May 30 at his Healdsburg office. The catered event is invite-only from 5 to 6:30 p.m., then opens to the public at 7 p.m.

Dr. Jacobs' book, which he co-authored with NorthBay biz magazine editor Karen Hart, details his almost-decade-long journey that started with his discovery of a mysterious line on an ancient papyrus and culminated in a patent, a successful line of skin care products, and the revelation of a beauty secret almost 6,000 years in the making.

Readers will learn about the 3,600-year-old Edwin Smith Papyrus, thought to be the oldest surviving document covering the topic of surgery. Many scholars have studied this scroll over the years, but Dr. Jacobs' exploration of it sparked his curiosity regarding one particular ingredient mentioned in a recipe for "turning an old man into a youth": hemayet.

Determining what, exactly, hemayet is occupied Dr. Jacobs for years to follow, as he recruited more researchers and others to help solve the mystery. Anyone seeking effective facial rejuvenation treatments today should know that their efforts were successful—most notably in the creation of the Stanley Jacobs MD Skin Care line.

Nefertiti's Secret has broad appeal, covering the ancient world, modern medicine, and a large slice of life between. The book blends fascinating science with exotic elements of travel and a glimpse into the past.

The book launch will include catered food, local sparkling wines, and a presentation by Dr. Jacobs highlighting the sights and treasures he and his family saw when they were in Egypt. His travel agent is also sending a video from Cairo to share more about the destination.

To buy a copy of Nefertiti's Secret, visit the book's page on Amazon.

The May 30 book launch event is at The Jacobs Center for Cosmetic Surgery: 145 Foss Creek Cir, Healdsburg, CA, 95448.
