It's finally here!! Are Those Real? True Tales of Plastic Surgery from Beverly Hills has been released from the captivity of my laptop and is now available for purchase in hard cover or paperback through Amazon or Barnes and Nobel websites. For the moment, it's easiest to find by searching under my name on those sites.

I've loved writing it over these past years, digging joyfully into my memory banks, and I'm thrilled that it's had some great pre-publication reviews. For example:

“With hands of gold and a heart to match, Dr. Leaf is as compassionate as he is talented. Are Those Real? is filled with funny, entertaining “real”stories. It should be your bible when choosing a plastic surgeon.”
Linda Dano, Emmy Award winning actress, talk-show host, designer and author.

“Dr. Leaf has provided insights into the world of reconstructive surgery that are both hugely entertaining and informative. He has captured the soul of this healing art with rare style and humor.” Bruce L. Gewertz, MD, Surgeon-in-Chief, Cedars Sinai Medical Center

“A highly readable and enjoyable window on the fascinating world of high-end plastic surgery” Peter Lefcourt, author of The Deal and The Dreyfus Affair

“If you're looking for a plastic surgeon's autobiography which will tell you how he did it, who he did it to, and 'Oh my god, can that be true?'....this is it! Norman Leaf''s well written, gossipy journey through his life as one of Hollywood's most respected doctors is a true page turner. From the very first sentence I couldn't put it down. This book is smart, funny, and....well, I could go on and on but I have to stop raving about it because its time for my Botox.” JoanRivers

The book will also be available on my website in about two weeks. In the meantime Amazon and Barnes and Noble are up and running.

I look forward to your comments. Hope you like it.

Best regards,

Norman Leaf, MD
