Edited by a recognised team of experts from the USA and Italy, New Frontiers in Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery is an innovative, authoritative, and richly illustrated guide to the most recent procedures in plastic and cosmetic surgery, and their potential for future use.

The book is divided into six clear sections, covering stem cells, liposuction, head and neck, breast, body and extremities. The first section on stem cells covers current and future applications of tissue engineering in plastic and reconstructive surgery, including the growth of tissues and organs. The extensive section on liposuction outlines the effectiveness of current techniques in reducing limb volume, with good cosmetic and functional outcomes and a low rate of complications.

Several cosmetic breast surgery techniques are covered, including a new approach to male breast contouring after massive weight loss. A new technique using radiofrequency energy for tissue tightening is also covered. The final section on extremities includes anatomy, symptoms, examination, types of treatment, and prognosis of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Enhanced by nearly 580 full colour illustrations and images, New Frontiers in Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery is at the leading edge of this rapidly developing field, making it invaluable for plastic reconstructive, maxillofacial and cosmetic surgeons.
