Minimally invasive aesthetic procedures are an important part of dermatologists' day-to-day clinical routine. However, plastic surgeons are also becoming more willing to explore them, and minimally invasive cosmetic and aesthetic procedures are now an established interdisciplinary topic. Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Procedures - A Guide for Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons addresses the needs of both these specialties. It provides a comprehensive overview of the most relevant and widely used minimally invasive procedures, presented in a practical and straightforward style. Rather than a broad overview of the literature, it offers a step-by-step guide to clinical procedures. Each chapter explores a single clinical procedure, discussing the theoretical basis; the materials needed; the methods and techniques; clinical follow-up; before-and-after illustrations; as well as the side effects and complications and their management. It also includes a summary of tips and relevant references. With more than a hundred procedures presented and discussed in a clinically applicable format, Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Procedures - A Guide for Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons is a practical manual for all dermatology and plastic surgery practitioners who are interested in aesthetic medicine.

Practitioners of aesthetic medicine and surgery already have a series of textbooks instructing on how to treat the standard patient. Unfortunately, they also have patients who do not conform to the average-those who are of a different age, or sex, ethnicity, or medical history, or who have special social requirements. Aesthetic Rejuvenation Challenges and Solutions: A World Perspective pools the expertise of top aesthetic practitioners who look at those complicated areas that tend to be ignored in the more standard textbooks and provides advice on managing these areas of special challenge that arise in clinical practice. The book contains extensive material on non-standard and non-textbook patients. It discusses how to evaluate these patients, and when to decide that a patient is not suited for a particular procedure. It discusses the treatment of patients of different ethnic groups, and provides guidance on how to manage patient expectations and deal with dissatisfied patients.
