Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Procedures Book Review:

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.

Cosmetic Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery Book Review:

Cosmetic Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery: Strategies for Success is a must for aesthetic surgeons interested in incorporating cosmetic medicine into their practices. It is also a lifeline for surviving the economic downturn. This is the right book at the right time! It offers surgeons the tools they need to meet the increasing patient demand for nonsurgical, minimally-invasive, anti-aging procedures. The editor, Dr. Renato Saltz, is one of the visionaries in the field who has been in the forefront of plastic surgery advocating cosmetic medicine. He has chosen contributors who are experts from different specialties-plastic surgeons, dermatologists, aestheticians, and practice management consultants; they share their expertise and practical advice to provide readers with a virtual goldmine of information. An Invaluable Resource This landmark work, the first of its kind, is packed with practical information on the financial and business aspects of cosmetic medicine as well as the step-by-step clinical descriptions of noninvasive procedures. It begins with a key chapter by Dr. Saltz, "Cosmetic Medicine: The Writing on the Wall," which focuses on current trends of patient demand and how cosmetic medicine can help aesthetic surgeons keep their practices busy and viable when requests for more invasive surgery are lagging. Dr. Saltz and his expert contributors show by example how cosmetic medicine services and products can breathe new life into an aesthetic surgery practice-appealing to a broader demographic consisting of young patients, baby boomers, and older patients. It is the key to practice growth and patient retention, helping aesthetic surgeons retain patients from the first visit for a nonsurgical procedure to a surgical procedure later to treat more aggressive aging changes. Practical and Comprehensive This book has something for everyone. Divided into four parts, it contains 28 comprehensive chapters. Part I includes five chapters, written by surgeons who practice what they preach. They provide pragmatic advice on choosing a practice model for incorporating cosmetic medicine into your existing surgery practice. Options range from office-based facilities in a private practice or academic setting, adjacent facilities, free-standing spas, and multi-specialty centers. Throughout each chapter, the authors focus on the advantages and disadvantages of each practice model along with specific financial and business issues that need to be considered. Part II is devoted to the Business Aspects of Cosmetic Medicine. It includes the nuts and bolts of financial and business advice for preparing a business plan, developing a financial model, staffing, marketing, and legal preparations relevant to providing cosmetic medicine products and service. Parts III and IV contain the clinical chapters, with step-by-step advice on the range of services and product options to offer as part of your cosmetic medicine menu. These chapters include information on skincare and makeup products, botox and fillers, fat grafting, laser therapy, IPL and radiofrequency, hair removal, peels and cosmeceuticals, and vitamins and hormone therapy. The last chapter, Secrets to Success, offers valuable advice for opening and sustaining a successful cosmetic medicine business within your surgical practice. Key points and "take-away messages" are included in each chapter. Numerous preoperative and postoperative photos demonstrate results of combined surgical and nonsurgical procedures.

Complications in Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation Book Review:

Expert guidance on minimizing and managing risks for a wide array of facial procedures The demand for minimally invasive facial procedures has increased exponentially over the past 20 years. In fact, an AAFPRS survey estimated that 80% of cosmetic facial procedures performed by their surgeons in 2019 were minimally invasive. Given the vast number of patients and underqualified practitioners administering facial surgery treatments, complications and poor outcomes are a significant issue. Complications in Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation: Prevention and Management by internationally prominent facial plastic surgeon Paul J. Carniol, renowned dermatologists Mathew M. Avram and Jeremy A. Brauer, and esteemed colleagues fills a gap in the literature. Organized in five sections and 19 chapters, the book starts with discussions of appropriate patient selection, anesthesia considerations, relevant anatomy, and potentially toxic smoke plumes generated by laser treatments and electrocautery. Section two details fillers and fat transfers for volume restoration, neuromodulators to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and deoxycholic acid to treat submental fat. Section three covers high-energy devices and procedures such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, vascular and pigment laser and light sources, radiofrequency, and microneedling. The final two sections feature discussion of liposuction and cryolipolysis, followed by the minimally invasive procedures threadlifting, face and neck lifts, hair transplantation, and blepharoplasty. Key Highlights Important insights on avoidance and management of adverse complications such as diplopia, ptosis, deformities, and asymmetry, as well as potentially life-threatening cerebrovascular accidents, visual loss, skin loss, and infection Extensive detailed illustrations and surgical photographs improve visual understanding of anatomical topography High-quality videos enhance knowledge of surgical nuances, potential pitfalls, and preventive measures to avoid problems This is an essential reference for dermatology, plastic surgery, and otolaryngology residents and fellows. Practitioners who specialize in cosmetic dermatology and facial plastic surgery will also find this an invaluable surgical companion.

Made Up Book Review:

Made Up exposes the multibillion-dollar beauty industry that promotes unrealistic beauty standards through a market basket of advertising tricks, techniques, and technologies. Cosmetics magnate Charles Revson, a founder of Revlon, was quoted as saying, "In the factory, we make cosmetics. In the store, we sell hope." This pioneering entrepreneur, who built an empire on the foundation of nail polish, captured the unvarnished truth about the beauty business in a single metaphor: hope in a jar. Made Up: How the Beauty Industry Manipulates Consumers, Preys on Women’s Insecurities, and Promotes Unattainable Beauty Standards is a thorough examination of innovative, and often controversial, advertising practices used by beauty companies to persuade consumers, mainly women, to buy discretionary goods like cosmetics and scents. These approaches are clearly working: the average American woman will spend around $300,000 on facial products alone during her lifetime. This revealing book traces the evolution of the global beauty industry, discovers what makes beauty consumers tick, explores the persistence and pervasiveness of the feminine beauty ideal, and investigates the myth-making power of beauty advertising. It also examines stereotypical portrayals of women in beauty ads, looks at celebrity beauty endorsements, and dissects the “looks industry.” Made Upuncovers the reality behind an Elysian world of fantasy and romance created by beauty brands that won’t tell women the truth about beauty.

Anesthesia in Cosmetic Surgery Book Review:

One major by-product of the aging baby-boom generation has been a surging interest in cosmetic surgery. Out-patient cosmetic surgery clinics have sprouted up in droves all over the U.S., and the number of cosmetic procedures performed in 2005 increased by over 95% from the previous year. Although procedures like facelifts and abdominoplasties (the 'tummy-tuck') are considered minimally invasive, the anesthetic protocols and regimens here are often overly complex and unnecessarily toxic. Major complications involving anesthesia in this (and any other) surgical milieu can range from severe post-operative nausea and vomiting (PONV) to neuromuscular spasticity to mortality. The mortality spectrum of things may be rare, but there have been many cases in which perfectly healthy cosmetic surgery patients require emergency intervention due to a severe complication involving anesthesia. In recent years, many new anesthetic protocols have been developed to reduce the incidence of PONV and other complications, while ensuring that effective pain management and level of 'un-awareness' during surgery is always maintained.

The Park Avenue Face also highlights a trend unique to the United States—a distinct difference between conceptions of beauty on the west coast versus the east coast. Where the West Coast Style is often about changing your personal signature, the East Coast Style prioritizes maintaining your personal signature. Through this up-close look at coastal trends, the reader will learn how to define and achieve a natural look—a face that reflects the person they have always been, and the person they strive to be, not someone they don’t recognize in the mirror. If you want a face with character and depth that looks ageless and don’t want a stretched, artificial or generic look, Dr. Jacono will show you how to get there. If you are considering any kind of facial enhancement, from minor and non-invasive treatments such as simple injections or a laser treatment to more involved surgical procedures such as a full-on facelift, this is your resource. The Park Avenue Face will show you how to avoid the quacks, the fads, the financial waste, and the dangers. Dr. Jacono will help you determine how you want to look and how best to get there. Featuring fascinating patient anecdotes, dozens of before-and-after photographs showing what the various procedures can accomplish and line drawings by veteran medical illustrator William Winn, this comprehensive guide will fully prepare you to step into a doctor’s office and discuss your facial enhancement options. You’ll know how each treatment works, how long you will take to recover, and how much change you can expect.

Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Book Review:

Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, written by one of the foremost authorities in the field, is the definitive "hands-on" guide for the practicing plastic surgeon. Each chapter presents the actual execution of a specific surgical technique and illustrates the finer points that separate unacceptable from state-of-the-art surgical results. Aesthetic plastic surgery procedures from head-to-toe are covered, including blepharoplasty, rhytidectomy, abdominoplasty, suction-assisted lipectomy, breast augmentation, and lip enhancement. Over 500 photographs and line drawings, with 46 in full color, are the thrust of the book's benefit to the practicing surgeon, as each clearly defines the technical maneuvers essential in achieving flawless results. Prevention of mistakes as well as correction and repair of poor technique are also emphasized - an area that few books stress at all. Truly the most clear-cut technical volume available, this book should be in the hands of all practicing plastic surgeons and residents.
