    Save time and trouble as you search the Internet for safe and reliable information on cosmetic procedures

    In a culture where everyone wants to look younger, more and more men are going “under the knife” for surgical cosmetic procedures in an effort to turn back the clock—or at least slow it down a little. The Internet Guide to Cosmetic Surgery for Men is an essential handbook for any man concerned about aging and how his appearance might affect his standing in the workforce or in the social world. Comprehensive, well-organized, and very easy-to-use, this invaluable book helps you sort through the overwhelming amount of medical information that’s available online to find the reliable resources you need about general and specific surgeries, and the physicians who perform them.

    More than one million cosmetic procedures are performed in the United States each year on men who have found that looking younger can have benefits in the job market and elsewhere. And with so many surgeries, procedures, and over-the-counter therapies available, it’s easy to get lost in the sheer volume of health care information that’s being transmitted via the Internet. The Internet Guide to Cosmetic Surgery for Men saves you valuable time and effort navigating commercial, not-for-profit, and educational Web sites maintained by professional associations, the government, educational institutions, physicians advertising their own practices, companies selling their products, physician locator services, and much, much more. M. Sandra Wood, editor of the Internet Guide to Cosmetic Surgery for Women and Men’s Health on the Internet, guides you in your search for information you can trust about cosmetic procedures (nose reshaping, hair transplants, eyelid surgery, liposuction, and male breast reduction), minimally-invasive procedures (Botox injections, microdermabrasion, laser hair removals, and chemical peels), and physician qualifications. This unique book also covers Internet basics, including site evaluation and basic search methods.
