Abstract
Chemical peeling is a well-known method used to restore a more youthful appearance and improve dermatologic defects. In recent years the technique has been marked by constant innovation. This book is the first atlas on chemical peels and has been significantly revised and updated since the first edition so as to reflect the state of the art in the field. The various types of chemical peel and peeling techniques, including new combined procedures, are first discussed in a step-by-step manner with the aid of supporting illustrations. Pathogenesis and treatment options are then considered, with each author reporting on his or her personal experience and preferred approach for different diseases and conditions, including acne, rosacea, melasma, photoaging, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis, and dark skin. An entirely new section addresses how to deal with side-effects and complications of the different procedures. This atlas has been specifically designed as a reference tool for dermatologists who deal with cosmetology. In particular, by providing clear and practical information on the different peeling procedures and their indications, it will prove invaluable for dermatologists and other doctors who wish to start performing chemical peels.

Abstract
Until a cure exists, Dupuytren's disease and related disorders such as Ledderhose's disease will pose lifelong threats of functional impairment for affected individuals. A better understanding of the onset of disease, early detection and functional preservation are of the utmost importance to minimize the impact of these conditions. This book is based on presentations and discussions at the 2010 International Symposium on Dupuytren's disease held in Miami, Florida, but it also includes new data and additional chapters. It is hoped that it will raise awareness of this underestimated condition and promote cooperative efforts to work towards a cure. Up to date information is provided on the epidemiology, biology, and pathology of the disease. The principles and specifics of treatment are explored in detail. The indications for and techniques of radiotherapy, minimally invasive treatments and open surgery are fully explained. In addition, the role of physical therapy is considered as well as the care of relapse and complications. Treatment of Ledderhose's disease and Peyronie's disease is also discussed. This book provides invaluable information for hand surgeons, podiatrists, orthopedists, plastic surgeons, radiation therapy specialists and general practitioners. It will help to foster an interdisciplinary approach to the understanding and management of this debilitating disorder and related conditions.

Abstract
This atlas is a comprehensive guide to the treatment and correction of scars. It is divided into four sections covering the different types of scar: atrophic and stretch marks, keloid and hypertrophic, normotrophic, and mixed. For each scar type, the various invasive and minimally invasive procedures and their results are documented with the aid of numerous high-quality photographs. In the section on keloid and hypertrophic scars, treatment is presented according to scar localization. In addition, the influence of etiology on treatment is considered, with distinction between scars due to injuries, animal bites, inflammatory diseases (including acne and varicella), and burns. Care is taken to distinguish between approaches suitable for fresh scars (in the inflammation, proliferation, and maturation phases) and those appropriate for scars present for more than one year. Potential adverse effects and complications of treatment are also explored.

Abstract
The lack of evidence-based medicine for the treatment of complex chronic wounds is apparent to most working in this challenging area. With increased longevity in most Western countries there is an increased prevalence of chronic diseases and consequently chronic wounds, especially the common venous and diabetic foot ulcer. There is therefore an urgent need to provide an evidence-based approach to the management of chronic wounds: an essential prerequisite is to have accurate measurements in the science of wound healing. Measurements in Wound Healing: Science and Practice covers the common chronic wounds from venous leg ulcers and diabetic foot disease to pressure ulcers. Chapters on topics such as burns and scarring are discussed alongside the all important topics of research in this area, randomized controlled trials and modeling. The editors have brought together a team of true experts of numerous disciplines from basic science to clinical medicine.The book is equally valuable to the specialist as well as those developing an interest in the management of wound healing.

Abstract
Dramatic improvements in laser technology have yielded new indications and applications in cutaneous disorders. Existing texts covering lasers in dermatology are often bulky and therefore it has been hard for the dermatologist to find a complete and concise reference that highlights only the specific use of lasers in cutaneous medicine. This handbook has been written to provide a basic structural framework for clinicians and trainees, and clearly outlines laser techniques for each specific dermatologic disorder. Handbook of Lasers in Dermatology comprehensively covers each application of lasers for the skin in a manner that can be easily read by beginners and experts alike. It provides readers with a handy and reliable reference guide that improves patient care and treatment outcomes.

Abstract
This textbook on burn care is focused specifically on the needs of a surgeon. It provides a "how to do" text that presents the practical strategies for initial resuscitation, skin grafting, burn-specific critical care and ultimately guide the surgeon for the best outcomes for the burn surgeon. It provides the reader with basic pathophysiology but avoids a detailed review of the molecular science of burns. Guidelines for basic care with the chapters covering the timeline used for each patient spanning from initial resuscitation (ABCs) to managing their re-socialization are provided. The text covers the key components to the initial management of the burn patient including airway, breathing and circulation. The reader is introduced to the metabolic changes of a major burn and how nutrition and pharmacologic manipulation affects these systemic effects of a burn injury. The management of burn sepsis as well as the basic concepts of wound healing of the different depths and severity of burns are covered. Another chapter covers the basic techniques of skin grafting, rehabilitation and reconstruction with a focus to optimize the cosmetic and functional outcome of the burn. Special chapters cover management of outpatient burns and pediatric injuries. Special burns, electrical, chemical, cold injuries and finally the treatment of other diseases that lead to massive skin loss are covered. Special considerations for pain, scar management, psychosocial recovery, intentional burns, burn prevention and disaster preparation complete the text. Burn Care for General Surgeons and General Practitioners provides a reference for general and plastic surgeons who are planning a career in burns. The textbook will also be a straightforward resource for the general or plastic surgeon who takes care of burns as part of their practice.

Abstract
The series "Clinical Approaches and Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology" intends to be a practical guide in Cosmetic Dermatology. Procedures in cosmetic dermatology are very popular and useful in medicine, indicated to complement topical and oral treatments not only for photodamaged skin but also for other dermatosis such as acne, rosacea, scars, etc. Also, full-face treatments using peelings, lasers, fillers and toxins are increasingly being used, successfully substituting or postponing the need for plastic surgeries. Altogether, these techniques not only provide immediate results but also help patients to sustain long-term benefits, both preventing/treating dermatological diseases and maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. Throughout this series, different treatments in Cosmetic Dermatology will be discussed in detail covering the use of many pharmacological groups of cosmeceuticals, the new advances in nutraceuticals and emerging technologies and procedures. This volume, entitled "Daily Routine in Cosmetic Dermatology" will be an important tool for aesthetic doctors, practicing dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and all other physicians interested in the field of aesthetic medicine. It discloses in detail the semiology and general treatments in cosmetic dermatology, providing the state-of-the-art regarding patients' evaluation, photoprotection, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals and special prescriptions. Also check the other volumes: Volume II - Chemical and Physical Peelings Volume III - Lasers, Lights and Other Technologies Volume IV - Botulinum Toxins, Fillers and Related Substances.

Abstract
Written by international experts, this book describes different techniques for abdominoplasty. It starts with a functional anatomy description of the abdomen, followed by a brief overview of current techniques. With the help of numerous illustrations, the reader will gain detailed knowledge of how to perform the inverse full abdominoplasty, the inverse mini abdominoplasty (with and without floating umbilicus) and the secondary inverse abdominoplasty. Lastly, ancillary procedures that can be used in conjunction with inverse abdominoplasty are discussed. By also addressing the potential complications of this surgical procedure, the book offers essential guidelines for surgeons dealing with a variety of problems in the surgery of the abdominal area. Although abdominoplasty is one of the oldest procedures in plastic surgery, new approaches like high lateral tension abdominoplasty have refined the technique and its aesthetic outcomes. Still, problems remain like the length of the procedure, difficulties of dissection of long flaps, lack of elasticity in the flaps due to previous surgery, scars at the surgical site, unfavorable aesthetic outcomes, and variable challenges during the postoperative period, like wound healing and pain. Particularly, secondary abdominal surgery remains a technical challenge, from decision to application.

Abstract
Dermatological conditions are intimately related to stress. Stress can affect, reveal or even exacerbate a number of skin disorders, including alopecia, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, pruritus, herpes, lichen planus, rosacea and urticarial. On the other hand, the skin disease itself could induce a secondary stress for the patient, influencing his or her quality of life. There is increasing evidence that stress influences disease processes and contributes to inflammation through the modulating hypothalamicpituitary-adrenal axis: releasing neuropeptides, neurotrophins, lymphokines and other chemical mediators from nerve endings to dermal cells. This is one of the first books published on this topic, focusing more on the basic science aspects of stress in dermatopathology (oxidants, antioxidants, and oxidative injury in dermatopathology, dermatopharmacology, and dermatotoxicology.) Most Psychodermatology texts adopt a practical approach to identify all types of Psychodermatology disorders, focusing on clinical treatment. This concise title offers a comprehensive and didactic approach to skin diseases caused or exacerbated by stress, as well as covers the immunology, role and effect of stress on skin disease, and quality of life in dermatology. In the current programs of medical residency in dermatology, little is taught about the relationship between stress and skin diseases and this book is an important tool for young dermatologists and psychodermatologists in training.

Abstract
This book comes to its second edition intending to broaden the discussion about the plastic surgical techniques for the reconstruction of the ear. It features a more in-depth discussion of the topics previously addressed, including chapters on microtia, anotia, the upper pole, auricular lobule and complications during and following ear surgery. Furthermore, it addresses a wide variety of deformities of the auricle and surgical topics that were not included in the previous edition, such as: Reconstruction of the tragus and creation of the external auditory canal - key considerations when planning or performing a reconstruction of the ear. New concepts on the surgical anatomy of the ear - essential knowledge for plastic surgeons when performing the operation. Traumatic amputation of the ear - a common and severe social and organic problem. Discussions are presented that address the cause of the problem, as well as guidelines for surgeons during first aid in order to provide adequate reconstruction. Ear reconstruction for reparation of deformities caused by piercing Reconstruction of the auricle secondarily to prominent ear surgery Reconstruction of the ear after human and animal bite Secondary reconstruction of the ear reduction otoplasty - an important procedure whenever the size of the ear negatively impacts the patient's wellbeing or self-esteem due to imbalanced facial contours. Features important notes on a procedure that leaves inconspicuous scars and creates a normal and natural appearance of the organ's architecture. Post-operative care - special information on how to optimally avoid complications after surgery. Reconstruction of the earáis required in a variety of patients, especially in those with congenital anomalies and associated deformities or those suffering from accidents and trauma affecting the auricle. In this sense, this surgical approach has the ultimate goal of improving aesthetic and functional aspects of congenital and acquired anomalies of the ear. Throughout the book, the goal is to share the author's experience, gathered in the course of 43 years dedicated to this challenging field. Descriptions and illustrative photos concerning correction and reconstruction of the auricle caused by prominent ear surgery are presented in detail. The didactic approach, supplemented by color illustrations and surgical photos, helps to demonstrate basic and advanced techniques alike. With forewords by Ivo Pitanguy and Jorge Psillakis.

Abstract
Skin diseases are highly prevalent among indigenous people, leading to low mortality but greatly impacting their quality of life. Such diseases can be observed in indigenous people; both those living in isolated communities and those who have since been urbanized to some degree share a common characteristic of presenting different clinical patterns than non-indigenous individuals. These specificities necessitate a special approach when diagnosing dermatologic diseases in indigenous people. However, these considerations are rarely discussed in standard dermatology books. This Atlas addresses that gap by providing specific materials for professionals involved in the health of indigenous people, especially with those who live either alone or in remote areas. It offers a comprehensive overview of the most common skin diseases in specific tribes, providing a full clinical guide on the dermatologic signs and symptoms in these individuals. Additionally, the book complements the clinical standpoint with an anthropologic perspective, examining the impact of dermatologic diseases in indigenous people and the different meaning of these diseases in their lives. Most of the material presented in this Atlas was collected in the Xingu Program, a project created in 1965 by the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil, and devoted to providing medical care to indigenous people from the Upper Xingu region, in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Thus, the content is primarily applicable to South American indigenous people. However, the common characteristics of the isolation and non-urbanization of these communities, as well as the anthropologic perspective adopted here, allow the content to be extrapolated to other indigenous peoples worldwide. This Atlas will be a novel and valuable resource for health professionals who work with indigenous peoples, especially in geographic areas where dermatologists are not always readily available.

Abstract
The series “Clinical Approach and Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology” intends to be a practical guide in Cosmetic Dermatology. Procedures in cosmetic dermatology are very popular and useful in medicine, indicated to complement topical and oral treatments not only for photodamaged skin but also for other dermatosis such as acne, rosacea, scars, etc. Also, full-face treatments using peelings, lasers, fillers and toxins are increasingly being used, successfully substituting or postponing the need for plastic surgeries. Altogether, these techniques not only provide immediate results but also help patients to sustain long-term benefits, both preventing/treating dermatological diseases and maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. Throughout this series, different treatments in Cosmetic Dermatology will be discussed in detail covering the use of many pharmacological groups of cosmeceuticals, the new advances in nutraceuticals and emerging technologies and procedures. This volume addresses the most important physical approaches in cosmetic dermatology, disclosing their uses and advantages. Here are discussed in detail the applicability of lasers and other lights, photodynamic therapy, radiofrequency, ultrasound and transepidermal drug delivery.
