Meet the Author: Frederick Lukash, M.D., FACS, FAAP

In The Safe and Sane Guide to Teenage Plastic Surgery, renowned pediatric plastic surgeon Dr. Frederick Lukash uses his years of experience to explore the complex issue of when and how to proceed with plastic surgery for a teen. From how to find the right doctor to payment options and when to say no, the book examines every facet of deciding if teenage plastic surgery is the right move. Lukash emphasizes that the guide is not about giving in to the media’s pressures of being "beautiful" but is instead simply about helping a teen feel normal through structural surgery. Filled with personal testimonies from former patients as well as walk-throughs of the most popular procedures for teens, this guide is a great read both for curious teens looking for more information and parents that want help understanding the process and supporting their teen throughout his or her journey to gain a better quality of life.
