A Consumer’s Guide
By Michael D. Vennemeyer, M.D.
Plastic Surgery Myths Dispelled is written by Cincinnati plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Vennemeyer and is the first book of its kind about plastic surgery. The popularity of plastic surgery has made it a fashionable topic in the media and a common topic for conversation. Like the original message in a game of telephone, information about plastic surgery may be degraded by the time it reaches your ear. Further, marketing tactics from less reputable practitioners make exaggerated claims about new technologies and procedures, promising unrealistic results. The information age has made all of this data immediately available to you on your smartphone. So, how do you know which facts to trust?
Beyond presenting sixty of these myths and revealing the truth, Plastic Surgery Myths Dispelled is an informative, fun-to-read book. It leaves the complicated medical jargon at the hospital and brings easy to understand explanations into your living room. The goal is to foster true understanding in people before they embark on their journey into a plastic surgeon’s office. The book reflects Dr. Vennemeyer’s commitment to empowering people to make educated decisions about cosmetic surgery.
Written in the format of an educational guide, each chapter focuses on an area of cosmetic surgery. Topics range from choosing a qualified plastic surgeon to breast augmentation, facelifts, liposuction, nose jobs and tummy tucks. The myths and their explanations are positioned at points in the text where they reinforce the subject, not distract from it. The myth-inspired chapter names echo the book’s theme. This makes it enjoyable, interesting and easy-to-read.
