Reading List -Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Books - Breast Augmentation
Nicole's Reading List
When I was researching breast augmentation
- way back before I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon, and long before I started this breast implant information web site, I read everything I could find about breast enlargement. The books below are some of the better ones, in my opinion.
The hyperlinked book titles link you to each book's page on Amazon.com. I have been unable to find these titles in my local bookstore, so to get them, I either had to place special orders at my local store or buy them over the 'net. (Disclaimer: If you buy any of the books below using the links provided, I will get a small referral commission from Amazon. I won't be able to retire from it, but I might be able to buy a nice lunch ;-).

Hilarious! Columnist Susan Reinhardt (and regular on Nicole's website!) takes every topic on men's and women's minds and blows them wide open with a never-before-seen candor. The humor is explosive.

Once, the author had to "marry" her best friend when the minister (also the bride's yard man) blew a gasket in his colostomy bag.
