In Stitches A Memoir by Dr. Tony Youn Review & Giveaway 6/2


Scrubs meets David Sedaris in this hilarious fish-out-of-water memoir about a young Korean-American nerd turned renowned plastic surgeon.

Dr. Tony Youn grew up one of two Asian-American kids in a small town where diversity was uncommon. Too tall and too thin, he wore thick Coke-bottle glasses, braces, Hannibal Lecter headgear, and had a protruding jaw that one day began to grow, expanding to an unthinkable, monstrous size. After high school graduation, while other seniors partied at the beach or explored Europe, Youn lay strapped in an oral surgeon’s chair where he underwent a life-changing jaw reconstruction. Ironically, it was this brutal makeover that led him to his life’s calling, and he continued on to endure the four horrific, hilarious, sex-starved, and tension-filled years that eventually earned him an M.D. Offering a window into a side of medicine that most people never see, Youn shares his bumpy journey from a shy, skinny, awkward nerd into a renowned and successful plastic surgeon.

This was a great fast read for me and I am sure that once you start reading this book~you will agree. I had me laughing out loud many times.As he takes us with on his journey to becoming a physician.There are also parts that will make you shed a few tears~as he worked hard for this degree and his father made sure that he did. In Stitches is chock~full of pre~med and medical school experiences.But it is not just a book about doctors. It's about not fitting in~about not knowing what is coming next and living with pressure from all sides. It's about Dr. Youn's own life changing experience with plastic surgery that led him to his current career.
