BEAUTY IN BALANCE BOOK REVIEWS
"Drs. Rosen and Ablaza have written an accurate guidebook for the cosmetic surgery patient. The book reads the way a consultation should be conducted at the surgeon's office. While cosmetic surgery is "feel good" surgery, it is, nevertheless, real surgery with real risks and consequences. Any person considering cosmetic surgery is well advised to read this book and to make sure that their surgeon is forthright with them is discussing the procedure."

"Drs. Ablaza and Rosen have written a concise and balanced primer on cosmetic plastic surgical procedures. Their straight-forward approach assists the reader in understanding what's real about cosmetic surgery today. This book avoids the hype and sensationalism seen on tabloid TV and other media, providing potential patients with a reliable and credible resource. I congratulate the authors on a superb mix of medical information, patient studies and real patient results. All cosmetic surgery patients will benefit from exposure to this common-sense and down-to-earth summary of the 'state of the Plastic Surgery art' as practiced today by two highly skilled Surgeons."
