Two full-length, narrated DVDs with step-by-step demonstrations
The demand for cosmetic surgery among Asians has grown dramatically. At the same time, the aesthetics of this surgery have evolved as well – from previous, more radical procedures to ‘westernize’ the face to a relatively conservative approach that improves facial balance and harmony while maintaining ethnic integrity.
This lavishly illustrated book presents state-of-the-art surgical techniques for the Asian face. It covers a plethora of procedures, including suture-based, partial-incision, full-incision and revision double eyelid creation with various epicanthoplasty strategies; alloplast and autogenous augmentation rhinoplasty; malar and mandibular reduction; dimple fabrication; and more. The authors are highly experienced practitioners who offer insights into the cultural and psychological factors that can help Western surgeons better understand the Asian patient.
Plus, the book includes two full-length, narrated DVDs with step-by-step demonstrations of double eyelid creation, nasal implant selection, augmentation rhinoplasty, alar-base reduction, and facial rejuvenative procedures.
For all plastic and cosmetic surgeons working with Asian patients, this book is both an essential reference and a practical guide covering all the latest procedures not previously available from one source.
