Monograph

This book is divided into two parts. The first part describes mini-invasive surgical techniques, sufficient to perform the most important tasks in rhinoplasty, such as: tip rotation and projection; closure of the open roof after humpectomy; alignment and stabilization of the columella; refinement of the nasal tip, lower third and medial third; narrowing of the alar base. The second part concerns medical rhinoplasty techniques using nerve blocks, injectable fillers etc., which aim is to achieve similar results, despite their temporary effect. Currently, the request for such procedures and their number exceeds this of surgical operations and demonstrates their importance. Although minimally invasive techniques will not totally replace surgical rhinoplasty, this book will serve as a tool to enhance refinement of rhinoplasty and clinical aesthetics.This first textbook in minimally invasive rhinoplasty techniques will be of great help to many doctors and will provoke further development of time-saving, atraumatic and mini-invasive techniques with preservative attitude toward nasal tissues in the modern art of nasal and face beautification.

Prof. Dr. Nikolay Serdev, MD, PhD is a renowned cosmetic surgeon. He has trained hundreds of doctors globally in minimally invasive aesthetic surgery and medical procedures as well as in his author techniques.  He is the creator of Scarless Serdev Suture® lifts of face and body and pioneer in many other mini-invasive cosmetic surgery techniques: ultrasound liposculpture of face, body and leg elongation and beautification; T-excision and columella sliding in rhinoplasty; non-surgical body contouring; and their combination with his own suture to facial rejuvenation, beautification and tissue volumising. He is also a world authority in ultrasound-assisted (VASER) body contouring and has trained doctors from around the world in its basic and advanced techniques. Dr. Serdev is Honorary professor at the New Bulgarian University in Sofia and director of its program of qualification in Aesthetic Surgery. He divides his time between his clinic, the University and short travels for international meetings, live surgery demonstrations and hands-on courses in countries of all continents. He is editor and author of several comprehensive textbooks in the field of Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, including Liposuction, Sutures Lifts on Face and Body Areas, Thread vs Suture lift techniques, Rhinoplasty and has authored many chapters in aesthetic surgery and medicine books, as well as original papers in medical journals.

  • Body Contouring and Sculpting

    Over the past decades, surgical techniques have greatly progressed to improve and correct appearance. They are artistic procedures to give the highly demanded proportions. The growing public interest in aesthetic and plastic surgery interventions such as body contouring and sculpting requires clear description and differentiation of these highly sophisticated techniques, their results and combinations, as well as scientific information about the different instrumentation, devices and materials used. Such clarification will be hugely beneficial both for patients and doctors, having in mind the increasing number of such interventions and progressing interest for a better and healthy living including improved appearance in society. The book adds some scientific news to the understanding of body contouring treatments. Currently, the request for atraumatic, short downtime procedures predominates and demonstrates the importance of hi-tech and safe liposculpture and fat transfer, although they cannot totally replace surgical excision methods.

  • Miniinvasive Face and Body Lifts - Closed Suture Lifts or Barbed Thread Lifts

    The biggest buzz in the facial and body lifting beautification and rejuvenation category is by far around mini-invasive scarless techniques. They are presented by suture and thread lifts. Both suture and thread lift techniques have many unique properties. For example, young patients do not want to be scarred with classic open face liftings. Also, for Asians, Afro-Americans, and Latino-Americans, who have higher percentage of keloids, these are the preferred non-scarring cosmetic surgery methods. Scarless mini-invasive lifting techniques, such as suture and thread lifts, need proper explanation and public access. This will be the first scientific book that could clear the false public belief that transcutaneous suture and thread lifts are one and the same method.

  • Advanced Techniques in Liposuction and Fat Transfer

    Liposuction is the first cosmetic procedure to change beutification surgery from open extensive excision surgery into a more atraumatic closed one. It gave rise to the modern understanding of minimally scarring and minimally invasive surgery and changed the understanding and preferences of both patients and doctors. It also became the most common procedure in cosmetic surgery world-wide, practiced by an increased number of physicians from various specialties. The techniques of fat grafting, closely bound with liposuction, have found widespread application and fat stem cells seem to be changing the future of many areas in medicine. Turning the pages, the reader will find a lot of information about advances, tips and tricks, as well as important milestones in the development of the different methods available, such as classic, power, ultrasound, laser and radio-frequency assisted liposuction etc. Most useful anesthesia techniques are described and discussed, and guidelines have been established for medical indications. Special attention is paid to good patient selection, complications and risks.
