In this manual on beauty, two doctors - a plastic surgeon and a dermatologist - present all the existing means of enhancing every facet of one's appearance (face, eyes, makeup, hair, legs, breasts, buttocks, weight). The authors review the entire gamut of existing techniques, from the simplest to the most complex. The book is divided into sections: What you can do yourself, What your dermatologist can do and What your surgeon can do. This serious, rigorous study provides scientific arguments to help readers make their way through a plethora of choices in the areas of cosmetics, aesthetic dermatology and plastic surgery. The information given here is straightforward and unbiased by commercial considerations. Le Guide de la Beauté is an attractive, abundantly illustrated book offering a broad panorama of ways of enhancing one's appearance. Jean-Claude Hagège is a plastic and cosmetic surgeon and a member of the International Society of Plastic Reconstructive Surgery. Patrice Morel is head of Dermatology at Hôpital Saint-Louis, in Paris.
