Offering a step-by-step, practical approach to increasingly requested cosmetic procedures, Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology: Surgical Lifting, enables you to master the up-to-date cosmetic techniques that produce the superior results your patients expect. Edited by expert surgeons Drs. Hooman Khorasani and Eyal Levit, along with hand-selected experts in each individual area, it covers minimally invasive surgical lifting techniques that can be performed by dermatologic surgeons—all abundantly illustrated and evidence based. A substantial video library demonstrating surgical lifting techniques helps you successfully incorporate the latest procedures into your practice.

Key Features

Provides complete, clear descriptions and rationales for the evaluation, management, and execution of surgical and advanced non-surgical rejuvenation of the face and neck.
Covers brow and forehead lifting, upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty, the Asian eyelid lift, facelift, modern neck lift, thread lifting, face contouring procedures, and skin resurfacing and tightening.
Features high-quality images and approximately 50 procedural videos demonstrating exactly how to perform facelift, thread lift, browlift, and blepharoplasty procedures.
Presents real visual aging to identify the festoon formations—one of the most difficult areas to handle in the rejuvenation of the lower eyelids and face.
Includes a detailed chapter on accrediting and building a state-approved operating room and photography room, and includes information on how to reduce the risk of COVID transmission through proven air system UVC devices.
Shares the knowledge and expertise of a leading cosmetic dermatological surgeon in every chapter, along with other specialists (facial plastic, plastic, oculoplastic, and oral maxillofacial surgery) who are proficient in each technique and have reviewed and added their pearls to the procedure.

An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud.
