I really enjoy reading this book a lot. I could not put it down until I finished reading it from cover to cover. I learned so much about the field of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery from reading this book that I was not aware of before. This book helps the reader understand the deeper meanings and truths about plastic and cosmetic surgeries. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about plastic and cosmetic surgeries. Anyone who wants to have plastic surgery should read this book first prior to getting the plastic surgery because this book will help one understand oneself and what one would like to achieve with the plastic surgery.

I was advised to read this book by Antonia Mariconda. It is a great read for any patient considering cosmetic surgery. Dr Robin really lets you understand what you should be thinking of rather than focusing on the 'happy ever after' ending and glossing over the important part.

I will recommend this book to all my patients.

Format: Paperback
Behind the Mask, Beneath the Glitter gives honest insight as to how the mind of Dr. Yaun works because he is so open about how he became the man and the path he took to become the best plastic surgeon in the US of A. I had work done by Dr. Yuan in 12/04, 2 years before I read his book. He came very highly recommended to me by 3 physicians in Beverly Hills. If I had not made the decision to have the work before I read his book, I definitely would have after I read his book. He is so honest and such a perfectionist. He will always be my doctor. I am going to have more work done this year by this very loyal, gentle, ethical family guy. I know I will find none better.
My name is Bernadine Gonzalez, bernieje7@aol.com.

This book by Dr. Robin T.W. Yuan, M.D. offers a unique invitation to the anyone considering cosmetic surgery-to approach it in a way that is realistic, helpful and imaginative. Dr. Yuan shows the reader how to approach cosmetic surgery in a healthy, pro-active and imaginative way that can only assure healthy and successful outcomes. I would recommend this book to anyone considering cosmetic surgery for the first time and even to those who have had cosmetic surgery.
