About this book


This book presents the state-of-art in regenerative procedures currently applied by aesthetic physicians, plastic surgeons and dermatologists. It is divided into two parts, the first of which provides a detailed introduction to aesthetic medicine and the aging process. The second part, in turn, addresses the current status of techniques and technologies with regard to autologous grafts, covering fat transfer, blood grafts, skin grafts and stem cells. The book examines the surgical applications of these grafts, as well as potential side effects and limitations. Therapy combinations and outcomes round out the coverage. Aesthetic physicians, plastic surgeons and dermatologists interested in performing regenerative procedures for aesthetic purposes will find this book to be a valuable guide.
