All the cosmetic dermatologic surgery techniques you need--and nothing that you don't!

Successfully performing cosmetic dermatologic surgery starts with mastering techniques… and that's the focus--the only focus--of this learn-as-you-go guide. Concise Manual of Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery is written by four of the field's preeminent experts who deliver clear, authoritative guidance on the most essential cosmetic dermatology surgical techniques.

Logically organized by technique instead of problem, the book first reviews the general approach to the dermasurgery patient, providing useful background information before systematically addressing specific surgical procedures. Each templated chapter begins with key points and includes a range of clinically relevant considerations--from set up to common pitfalls--that represent a practitioner's ideal checklist.


  • Systematic approach to coverage of all surgical techniques: flaps and grafts, chemical peels, fat transfer, liposuction, hair transplantation, treatment of varicose and telangiectatic leg veins, blepharoplasty, forehead and face lift, and more
  • Streamlined, focused content
  • Consistent chapter format that includes key points, indications and contraindications, set up, choice of agents/techniques, a step-by-step description of the technique, and how to avoid potential pitfalls
  • Excellent full-color illustrations, including diagrams and clinical photographs
  • Chapter on the use of lasers in cosmetic dermatologic surgery

Editorial Reviews

"Surgical procedures, especially cosmetic procedures, and laser are growing rapidly in the field of dermatology and dermatologists need to feel skilled at these in order to provide the care our patients expect of us. There are few up-to-date surgical books which address this issue, so this is a welcome addition to the field. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
