Tales for Tagliacozzi by John Zannis, MD

John Zannis, MD describes the reality of modern-day plastic surgery practice in a way that prospective patients will understand and reveals secrets about the specialty they won’t want to miss.

In his new book (Authorhouse Publishing) Tales for Tagliacozzi – An Inside Look at Modern-Day Plastic Surgery, Dr. Zannis reveals the secrets about his profession that everyone wants to know.  Journey into the world of modern plastic surgery while learning about the Renaissance’s founding father of plastic surgery, Gaspare Tagliacozzi.

“I wanted to share my delight as I imagined recounting the many unthinkable things that happen in my practice to someone like Gaspare Tagliacozzi.  And, most importantly, I wanted to give a true insight into the life of a modern-day plastic surgeon.  Prospective patients will learn a lot about the procedures available today,” says Dr. Zannis.

The final chapter of this easy 86-page read reveals true never-before-told secrets to the general public.  “I believe in complete transparency and patients making the best informed decisions for themselves,” explains Dr. Zannis.  “That’s why I took the risk to ‘reveal all’.” From what motivates surgeons to where and how procedures are done, including the actual risks, everything a prospective patient wants to know before going under the knife is discussed.
