This book is a concise guide to basic techniques in dermatologic surgery. Designed as a ‘how to’, quick reference text with a bullet point format and emphasis on demonstration, the book is invaluable for trainee and practising dermatologists.
Beginning with instruction on patient evaluation, anaesthesia, instruments and suturing, the following sections cover skin biopsy, and different surgical techniques including cryosurgery, cyst removal, Mohs surgery, and skin grafts. Two chapters are dedicated to laser surgery for lesions and tattoo removal. The final chapters discuss aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, neuromodulators, fillers, and treatment of rhinophyma, concluding with detail on biopsy and surgery of the nail.
Authored by recognised, US-based expert Glenn Goldman, this book is highly illustrated with surgical photographs and diagrams.
