A multitude of modern techniques and new technology has altered and improved the surgeon's ability to rejuvenate a patient's appearance. A wealth of information and scientific advances in facial rejuvenation have made it possible to customize treatment according to each patient's aesthetic needs, schedules, and desires. Offering a comprehensive overview of the variety of chemical, physical, and thermal techniques, Facial Rejuvenation features all current methods for altering the texture and surface characteristics of the skin to correct scarring and improve photoaging. The amazing evolution of plastic surgery has opened the door to the various procedures currently used. Featuring contributions of surgeons from a wide range of specialties, this timely book explores the range of options that the patient has to consider. For example, a patient may now choose between several necklift and facelift operations, depending on the extent of the problems and the desired results. Various chemical peels are also available, as well as several fillers for treating soft tissue defects. When necessary, the facial skeleton can be altered to improve facial aesthetics. Resurfacing can be performed with different lasers or a bipolar radio frequency device, and lasers can be used for collagen stimulation.
These fascinating topics are just some of the subjects reviewed within this volume, which also addresses patient evaluation and new techniques such as soft tissue augmentation and Botox therapy. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists will find Facial Rejuvenation an enlightening and essential resource.
