There are many books on facial rejuvenation aimed at dermatologists but relatively few covering the whole body. Most body rejuvenation books take a surgical approach and are aimed specifically at plastic surgeons. However, body rejuvenation is a dynamic area encompassing many minimally invasive techniques, often derived from facial rejuvenation, which are more cost-effective and require less downtime than traditional surgical techniques.

The number of treatment options can be bewildering, and Rejuvenation of the Aging Body aims to provide clear instructions on which treatment types to use for each specific problem, together with details of any special modifications that must be made for different body areas. Chapters describe how best to assess the aging body and build a suitable treatment plan combining all the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques to give the best cosmetic results. Rejuvenation of the Aging Body is an invaluable guide to the assessment and management of the aging body, for trainee and practicing dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons.
