Reviews - What do customers think about Manual of Aesthetic Surgery 1 (With DVD Video)?
Much repeat from Volume I Jul 2, 2005
Simpler procedures than the ones described in Volume I. I guess that it might be useful for the ones who wants to learn to become an aesthetis surgeon, although the infomation provided is still quite limited.
The author could have spent more time and pages describing the complications and pitfalls of the procedures described instead of promoting himself again and again.
The author promotes his own products at the last portion of the book.
There are many repeat contents and pictures in the adjuvant chapter from the 1st volumn.
The DVD is a Zone II format. It cannot be played in the US unless you have a European DVD machine.
Overall, the artist of the book is the best in the business. The content of the book is too pale in comparison.
Standard aesthetic surgery procedures? I think NOT! Jul 1, 2005
This book is attractive at first sight with it's glossy paper and high quality drawings. But the book missed out on the most important thing for a book: essence. It sets a goal to educate the non-professionals, i.e., the surgeons who are not in the aesthetic surgery business yet. But the techniques described, except for the upper blepharoplasty and the adjuvant therapies, could never be copied by a non-specialty trained surgeon. In other words, the book missed both the professionals and the wannabes.
Additionally, the author failed to point out the complications, pitfalls, complexities, and difficulties of the procedures. It's like this text itself is a big trap for "novice" aesthetic surgeons to jump in. A responsible educator would have adopted a more responsible approach.
The author wants to standardize the aesthetic procedures for the world, yet he presents only the procedures carrying his own name, the "Mang Method". It's a test of the tolerance of the internatonal aesthetic surgery society indeed.
The included DVD is in Zone II format which means that it cannot be played in a DVD machine with the US Format.
The book may be a commercial success, but it failed in serving its real purpose--teaching.
