The demand for outpatient cutaneous surgery procedures has increased at a rapid rate over the last several decades. Cosmetic, oncology, and reconstructive procedures are being performed by primary care physicians and a variety of specialists in different disciplines such as dermatology, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, and otolaryngology. As the number of cutaneous surgery procedures rises, so will the rate of complications, which are inevitable and occur even with the most skilled, careful, and meticulous surgeons. In the practice of medicine, we often learn more from our complications than our triumphs. The authors of each chapter of Complications in Cutaneous Surgery were recruited to contribute based on their experience and respective areas of expertise. As of this writing, no other book specifically addresses complications in cutaneous surgery. The goal of this volume is to provide a comprehensive text that will enable the practicing physician to formulate a preoperative strategy to not only prevent complications before they occur but also to properly diagnose and manage complications when they arise, allowing the physician to provide optimal care to the patient.
