Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This is a surgical primer for those dermatologists and cosmetic facial surgeons interested in techniques to tighten and enhance the face and neck.
Purpose: This volume is part of a series, Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology, in which each book highlights a major topic in the field. The authors' intent is to familiarize a subset of specialists with both basic and advanced facelift and facial tightening maneuvers. This is accomplished by providing guidelines for the procedures along with advice relating to various appropriate clinical settings and the surgical means to achieve these goals.
Audience: This series is, for the most part, written and edited by clinically orientated dermatologists. The purpose and overall effect of this book is to target those within this specialty who perform or wish to initiate these surgical maneuvers. However, other cosmetically orientated physicians may also glean useful advice. It is not a standalone procedural manual for the neophyte who has not had targeted surgical training in cosmetic surgery.
Features: The 13 chapters are focused upon various and sundry face-lifting, tightening, and tissue augmentation techniques; historical relevance of past methods; incision options; preliminary assessments; anesthesia requirements, and potential complications. A DVD included with the book explores and clarifies some of the technical themes expounded upon in print; although the content is worthwhile it is not computer friendly. All chapters are accompanied by visual aids that further hone in on the authors' intended meaning. The drawings and diagrams are well done and didactic in nature. Various patient intraoperative photographs, as well as before and after photos showing the end results, are abundant throughout the chapters.
Assessment: This book is a useful guide to the facelift. It offers a host of relevant procedures along with the ideology of this group of specialists, affording the reader options and alternatives in the field of facial rejuvenation. In order to avoid some of the pitfalls associated with the cosmetic surgery of the face, it would behoove the neophyte to garner additional resources on these topics prior to undertaking what the experienced surgeon recognizes as a significant surgical challenges.
