Book Review of: Regenerative Facial Surgery



Regenerative Facial Surgery, edited by Cohen et al, is an insightful look at the current and future application of regenerative science in facial rejuvenation.1 The text flows smoothly as it takes the reader through historical foundations, emerging research, and critical understanding of the anatomic components of facial aging. This landmark work demonstrates a thoughtful blend of how time-tested techniques can be paired with the blossoming field of regenerative medicine to achieve natural results. As discussion, research, and ultimately incorporation of anti-aging medicine and regenerative science comes to every day clinical application, the authors have crafted a remarkable textbook that facilitates knowledge and sparks interest in this growing frontier of aesthetic surgery.


The text takes the reader through the important background and science of regenerative surgery to set the stage for how this field can expand over time. The chapter on exosomes is beautifully written and provides detailed descriptions that help synthesize the concepts into an array of potential practical applications that will continue to evolve and bring advances to many disciplines of medicine. Of the many strengths of this text, the wonderful illustrations and videos foster learning about macrofat, millifat, and nanofat and how their utilization in both deep and superficial spaces can be safely accomplished to yield transformative results. The refinements in skin care recommendations are soundly based in science and invite deeper thoughts into biocustomization of skin care.
