Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Smith, MD (Private Practice)
Description: This book addresses the concept, design, and technical performance of male cosmetic surgery.
Purpose: The purpose is to compile and refine the concept, design, and technical performance of male cosmetic surgery. An increasing proportion of plastic surgery patients are men; there is a need to understand their plastic surgery needs and differences from women. It doesn't pretend to be encyclopedic, but instead is a springboard for the evolution of cosmetic surgery in men; it does that well.
Audience: The book is written for the plastic surgery practitioner. The editor and the authors are internationally recognized authorities in plastic surgery and in their particular areas of authorship.
Features: The book is richly illustrated with appropriate photos and illustrations. Most of the 24 chapters end with references that comprise the up-to-date relevant literature on the topic. The table of contents is adequate.
Assessment: This is a necessary book. All practitioners of plastic "cosmetic" surgery need to have clearly in mind the fine points of consulting and treating all of their patients. As more men want appearance enhancement, their peculiar differences from women and how one addresses these differences have become more important. Anyone who treats these men must have a working knowledge of the contents of this book.

Booknews
Twenty-four articles by plastic surgeons discuss the procedures involving the male patient and the various concerns and physician responses that seem to be different from those of the female patient. Many of the basic surgical techniques are similar for men and women, but there are differences in expectations, objectives, and physical attributes. Topics include: cosmetic dermatology; rhinoplasty; aesthetic facial skeletal surgery; baldness--treatment for alopecia; punch grafts in male pattern baldness; aesthetic ear surgery; abdominal contouring; and analysis of racial differences. Contains many preoperative and postoperative photographs, as well as anatomic drawings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
