Summaries
Main Description
Fillers in Aesthetic Medicine is an excellent and comprehensive overview on the clinical use of fillers in aesthetic medicine. It is designed to assist dermatologists as well as plastic surgeons in the aesthetic medical treatment of their patients. Based on evidence-based medicine guidelines, the first part of the book describes the most common fillers, the characteristics of their substance as well as their efficacy and safety. In a step-by-step approach the second part shows how to use the fillers for the most common indications of the aging face, such as: glabella, nasolabial folds, cheeks, lips, and marionette lines.All specific aesthetic procedures such as enhancing cheekbones or raising nose tips are described with a hands-on approach. Last but not least, the third part includes useful information on relevant combination therapies, i.e. combining fillers with botulinum toxin A, with peeling/lasers as well as plastic surgery.
