Who are the serial surgery seekers? What really happens in a consultation? What is the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction and who is more suited for which? What mistakes have doctors made and can they be corrected? Dr. Paul Lorenc not only supplies answers but analyzes what drives people-women and men alike-to increasingly request his services. Dr. Lorenc also describes:

  • Why never to have plastic surgery on a Friday

  • What post-surgical recovery really involves
