Publisher description: This volume is a comprehensive and highly practical textbook of dermatologic surgery. The book provides clear, detailed, step-by-step how-to instructions for all available surgical procedures and techniques and offers precise guidance on recognizing pitfalls, avoiding complications, and managing them when they occur. Close attention is also given to postoperative management. More than 1,200 detail-revealing illustrations complement the text throughout. Coverage encompasses all procedures using steel instruments and lasers and special procedures such as Mohs surgery, cryosurgery, electrosurgery, dermabrasion, chemical peels, hair replacement, suction lipectomy, augmentation, and sclerotherapy. For each procedure, the text discusses preoperative planning; technique, with anatomic considerations if applicable; postoperative management; and complications.
