Dennis Schimpf, MD, a South Carolina plastic surgeon, has released an updated version of his plastic surgery guide book: Finding the New You: Think, See, and Feel Beautiful.
Dr. Schimpf is the founder of Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery in Summerville, South Carolina.
Finding the New You invites readers to contemplate their personal conceptions of beauty.
"Surgery alone does not change how you feel about yourself or the feelings others have when they see you," Dr. Schimpf explained. "When a patient experiences self-doubt or insecurity as a result of a physical imperfection they see, surgery may have a profound impact on them. It is the combination of the physical change through the surgery and the patient's newfound self-confidence that makes their inner happiness project to those around them. That change is what ultimately makes a patient feel beautiful."
In the updated guide book, Schimpf details important information about the different plastic surgery procedures available to patients, how to spot myths and misconceptions about plastic surgery, how culture influences plastic surgery decisions and the importance behind plastic surgery and its role in medicine.
