I’m most pleased and proud to announce the publication of my latest book, Female Genital Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, by Wiley-Blackwell publishing company. As you may know, Wiley is famous for publishing textbooks that cover a multitude of scientific disciplines.
My book is the world’s first medical textbook in the field of women’s intimate genital plastic and aesthetic surgery. I’m the editor of this book and also wrote many of its chapters. What has been most satisfying about this endeavor is knowing that it fills a void in teaching and evidence-based research in the fastest growing field of cosmetic/plastic reconstructions, which include labiaplasty, vaginoplasty and “vaginal rejuvenation.”
The 240-page textbook will be used in teaching programs around the world and, for the first time, encompasses the entire field. This includes the rationale and philosophy, psychosexual issues, anatomy, indications, pre- and postoperative care, in-depth specifics of the individual procedures, complications and complication avoidance. It provides “pearls for practice” and standards of care advisories.
I’ll be using the book for my courses and seminars in Davis, around the U.S., and at congresses in Europe and Asia. My 2016 foreign program includes congresses in Rome, Cannes, and Istanbul, where I’ll be a keynote speaker for each of those events.
Female genital plastic surgery has become an increasingly sought-after option for women seeking improvement in genital appearance, relief from discomfort, and increased sexual pleasure. These surgeries are a combination of gynecologic, plastic, and cosmetic procedures. Every year sees a higher demand for physicians properly trained and able to perform them.
This unique text from the acknowledged experts in the field covers
- the anatomy of the area,
- the specific surgical procedures and all their variations,
- patients’ rationales for surgery,
- training guidelines and ethical issues,
- outcome statistics,
- sexual issues,
- patient selection,
- potential risks and complications.
Examining the issues from individual patient’s perspectives, it is written in an academic but easy-to-read style, with understandable and unambiguous drawings and photographs. It contains a step-by-step surgical approach, how to best select the right surgical candidates, how to treat this select group of patients, the sexual issues involved, how to individualize techniques for each specific patient, how to deal with criticism from colleagues or journalists, psychosexual issues, and patient protection.
