DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - April 28, 2014) - In the US alone, more than 11 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed in 2013, totaling more than 12 billion dollars. Knowing what questions to ask your plastic surgeon can mean the difference between becoming a 'surgery gone bad'
statistic, and achieving a safe and successful outcome. In their new book Navigate Your Beauty: Smart and Safe Plastic Surgery Solutions
(available on amazon.com April 28, 2014), co-authors Rod J. Rohrich, M.D. and Mary Crosland reveal the Three Magic Questions
to ask so you can find the right surgeon and maximize your opportunity for a safe and successful outcome.
What makes these questions so magical? According to Dr. Rohrich, "Patients who ask these Three Magic Questions
will quickly discern whether or not they are in the right hands. The answers to the questions reveal in an instant whether you are dealing with a trustworthy professional or someone who could do you far more harm than good." While most of the best plastic surgeons don't advertise, some of the ones who do may not even be plastic surgeons. "One's appearance and health are far too valuable to entrust to someone who may have acquired a certificate in a weekend course and is not qualified to perform plastic surgery," says Dr. Rohrich.
Written from the unique perspective of one of the world's top plastic surgeons and his patient, this book fills a void in the patient education and empowerment areas. This dual perspective is vital because as Crosland states, "The consumer needs to be fully informed and educated to stay out of harm's way. Today, there's a lack of empowering sources of education around plastic surgery procedures and results. That's why we wanted to create an indispensable guide to optimal outcomes in cosmetic procedures, whether surgical or non-surgical."
Navigate Your Beauty
covers all aspects of procedures from skincare, fillers, facial plastic surgery, and tummy tucks to mommy makeovers, breast augmentations, liposuction, revision, and reconstructive plastic surgery. Choosing the right doctor for any of these procedures is vital. "Remember, just because a doctor is board certified doesn't mean you will get the best, or the right doctor, for what you need," says Dr. Rohrich. "Additionally, different doctors are trained in different areas. Patients should choose a top professional in the specific surgical procedure being considered."
The shared goal of Dr. Rohrich and Crosland is to help the consumer become smarter and reveal how to become a true self-navigator to your best health long term. The authors also present before and after photos showing the positive results of a good surgeon: www.navigateyourbeauty.com.
