The landmark first edition of Endoscopic Plastic Surgery had a profound influence on the practice of plastic surgery and set the stage for the current trend toward minimally invasive plastic surgery procedures. The second edition continues that tradition with 13 additional chapters and numerous cases demonstrating results. With the guidance provided in this edition, surgeons will be able to master the necessary skills for the latest endoscopic techniques in aesthetic surgery and offer their patients the minimally invasive procedures they have been requesting.
The book is divided into four sections: Basics, Face, Breast, and Abdomen. Each clinical section begins with a chapter on applied anatomy followed by several chapters by different authors discussing their individual approaches to a specific anatomic area. Additionally, the book explores ancillary procedures such as lymphatic massage, radiofrequency treatments, microdermabrasion, fillers, and lasers. These chapters discuss the use of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for a complete facial rejuvenation package.
The book provides expert commentary on the latest minimally invasive procedures, including summary boxes listing clinical caveats. It features color illustrations, as well as preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative photographs, and a supplemental DVD with operative videos.
