“The authors have produced this text principally to guide those treating Asian patients. However, the approach can be useful for treating any patient particularly as it encourages the clinician to understand the importance of continually advancing one’s anatomical awareness to reduce the risk of complications. References to guide further reading are given at the end of each chapter. The quality of the dissections and diagrams are superb, … to visualise the techniques described.” (Anna Baker, The PMFA Journal, Vol. 04 (2), December – January, 2017)
“The purpose is to discuss the anatomical considerations that are pertinent to safely administering injections of fillers and neuromodulators in the face and neck. The audience is physicians who administer these cosmetic services. … This is a thoughtful book full of practical information on administering filler and botulinum toxin injections in the face and neck. The anatomic discussions are relevant to avoiding mishaps and are indispensable to any clinician providing these treatments.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2016)
This book, containing more than 200 cadaveric photos and 200 illustrations, aims to familiarize physicians practicing botulinum toxin type A (BoT-A) and filler injection with the anatomy of the facial mimetic muscles, vessels, and soft tissues in order to enable them to achieve optimum cosmetic results while avoiding possible adverse events. Anatomic considerations of importance when administering BoT-A and fillers are identified and in addition invaluable clinical guidelines are provided, highlighting, for example, the preferred injection points for BoT-A and the adequate depth of filler injection. Unique insights are also offered into the differences between Asians and Caucasians with regard to relevant anatomy. The contributing authors include an anatomist who offers distinctive anatomic perspectives on BoT-A and filler treatments and three expert physicians from different specialties, namely a dermatologist, a plastic surgeon, and a cosmetic physician, who share insights gained during extensive clinical experience in the use of BoT-A and fillers.
