Description / Abstract:


The concept for this book arose from a need to provide an international approach to the latest in cosmetic dermatologic procedures from not only seasoned experts, but advanced thinkers. When we first approached the publisher, the concept of a CD or DVD accompanying a textbook displaying the procedures discussed was completely novel. It is now not only a reality found in many textbooks, but a necessity. We believe that combined with written text, an accompanying video becomes an observational and interactive learning experience which is almost as good as watching the procedure live. The authors have produced these videos to that end.

The topics covered in this text are the core of cosmetic dermatologic surgery: from botulinum toxin and fillers, to liposuction, non-ablative lasers, and the newest ablative lasers. What makes this text quite unique is the inclusion of the latest sclerotherapy techniques such as foam and endovenous procedures as well as the use of radiofrequency for skin tightening. For those of us versed in principles of dermatologic surgery, this text takes us to the next level. Designed to be procedure oriented but comprehensive as a reference, this book is well illustrated and designed to allow the reader to enter the realm of expert cosmetic dermatologic surgery.

Dr. Alina A. M. Fratila was a source of great inspiration for many of the topics covered in this text. Her relentless dedication to the success of many meetings of the International Society of Dermatologic Surgery of which she was President, provided the concept for a comprehensive international course on cosmetic dermatologic surgery. It is with this in mind that this text expands and updates the content but keeps true to the intent of Dr. Fratila in organizing an international team to explain and teach modern aspects of cosmetic dermatologic surgery. We are also indebted to Sonja and Gerhard Sattler, who organize live cosmetic dermatologic surgery symposia in Rosenpark every other year in which most of the procedures covered in this text can be observed live.

We truly hope that all the readers will gain insight into procedures they are already performing or add additional procedures to their armentarium. We also hope that you will enjoy the international exchange of techniques tweaked tomaximize results and the sharing of cosmetic dermatology pearls.
