Cosmetic Laser Surgery is a multiauthored atlas of the burgeoning field of aesthetic laser surgery intended for several different types of specialists. Some chapters are mainly written for dermatologists by covering laser hair transplantation and the laser treatment of vascular lesions, scars, tattoos, and pigmented lesions. Other chapters that cover endoscopic laser rhytidectomy, blepharoplasty, and meloplasty will be mostly appreciated by plastic, facial plastic, and oculoplastic surgeons. The chapter dealing with laser uvulopalatoplasty for snoring is of interest to otolaryngologists. The laser skin resurfacing for rhytides and facial scars section is the 1 truly multispecialty chapter. The chapters directed to nondermatologists are worthwhile mainly as a brief overview of what other specialists are doing with lasers.
This is a very attractive and inviting book to read with its many outstanding full-color illustrations. As behooves an atlas, the text is appropriately brief taking less than 3 hours to be read cover
