Description / Abstract:


Plastic surgeons and dermatologists, as well as any other practitioner dedicated to the esthetic field, have to be concerned with every aspect of the use of injection treatments. Those training others need not only to be aware of the latest surgical developments; there is also an increasingly intense need for up to date information on the alternative medical, non-invasive treatments and accompanying procedures, which over the past 10 years have become essential aspects of our daily practice. Peelings, cutaneous lasers, bodyshaping techniques – as well as injections with botulinum toxin, fillers, volumetric implants, and fat grafts, both for face and body – are taking on an ever increasing importance which cannot be ignored if we want to optimize our clinical results.

For this reason, the first French and European University diploma dedicated to injection treatments, volumetric implants, and associated techniques in Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology was created in 2002 by a group of doctors – Patrick Bui, Annick Pons Guiraud, and me – together with the Universities of Paris V and XII, and sponsored by Professors Jean Paul Escande (for the Dermatology field) and Laurent Lantieri (for the Plastic Surgery field). The goal of this diploma is to evaluate the use of various techniques and to offer teaching of the abovementioned practices, taking into account facial and body anatomy, semiology, and the physiology of facial and body aging. Complications and medical legal issues are broadly discussed throughout these chapters, which have largely been inspired by and developed on the basis of our courses. Further deepening the same concept, I was happy to create with Elisabeth Domergue Than Trong the first University Volumetry Unit at the Henri Mondor University Hospital Center in Paris, sponsored by Professors Martine Bagot (Dermatology) and Laurent Lantieri (Plastic Surgery). The aim of this unit is to assess different volume-enhancing products within the scope of the medical pathologies and cosmetic indications in relation to face and body lipoatrophies.
