Niamtu Cosmetic Surgery Text Book, Third Edition is Moving Along

In 2009  I wrote the first edition of my textbook (published in 2011)  which became a best seller in cosmetic surgery texts on  In 2016  I wrote the second edition (published  in 2018) which also remains at the top of cosmetic surgery textbooks.  18 months ago I began working on the third edition.  I was honored to have been asked as most textbooks don’t make a third edition.  Each time I accept a new edition, I forget how hard it is!  I have worked on this book every day for 18 months in order to make it fresh and new.  Many textbooks get another edition but are only warmed over copies of the earlier edition. The new edition will be close to 1,000 pages and I have added thousands of new images and many new videos.  I also have some chapter co-authors who are among the most recognized in their respective specialties including plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, dermatology, oculoplastic surgery and others.  These contributors help bring the latest techniques to the forefront.  My books have been translated into Spanish and Chinese and I am looking for an even bigger translation audience with the new edition.

I was so excited to get a copy of the cover of the new book today.  The book should hit the shelves this coming spring. It is a project of immense proportions with many hundreds of hours of typing, filming and editing.  I have literally put my life into this project (just ask my wife)!
