Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This is a primer on the most in demand cosmetic surgical procedures.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach clinicians the most up-to-date techniques for cosmetic surgical procedures. This is a worthy objective that is touched upon, but it would be a difficult undertaking even if the book were significantly larger.
Audience: The intended audience is surgeons who wish to learn cosmetic surgery procedures. The majority of the authors are from the same New York institution.
Features: The 19 chapters vary in complexity and depth, but use a consistent presentation, incorporating patient selection, preparation, surgical technique, complications, and outcome assessment. Initial chapters deal with the evaluation of the patient, ways to ensure patient safety, and the proper way to prepare the patient prior to surgery. These chapters contain usable intake forms along with charts of medications that are to be avoided prior to surgery. Subsequent chapters in the early part of the book cover the nonsurgical procedures using fillers, Botox and lasers. Later sections are devoted to surgical procedures such as brow, face, and neck lifts, eyelid, nose, and ear reshaping, procedures that lift, reduce, and enlarge breasts, and the use of alloplastic facial implants. The remainder of the book is devoted to abdominal, arm, and liposuction cosmetic surgical techniques. Color drawings and photographs illustrate techniques. Each chapter has a modicum of references.
Assessment: This book joins a crowded field and, like the others, it delivers relevant information. However, the chapters are not consistently optimized and thus, this book will impact but not alter the landscape.
