aesthetic medicine edizione minerva medica


It is not possible to attribute a certain date to the birth of Aesthetic Medicine. It is certainly known that in ancient times, albeit unwittingly, techniques, which are current today, were used especially for skin care. One for all, Cleopatra who bathed in donkey’s milk, benefited from the properties of lactic acid. This Science, which has its origins in Art, has then increasingly evolved up to the most modern techniques. This book is therefore aimed at connoisseurs of the subject, and it takes into consideration chapters that are not very common but for which it is necessary to learn more thanks to the help of major worldwide experts.


Giuseppe Sito Graduated in Medicine and Surgery with full marks in 1978, he achieved three different specializations in Italy and one in France. He has always been dedicated to the study of facial defects with the techniques of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery, publishing, even in the United States, works with proposals for original techniques, not neglecting the study of possible complications as well as their prevention and treatment. Visiting Professor at the University of Naples for over twenty years, he has been President of the Internships in Aesthetic Medicine and Plastic Surgery since their foundation and currently he is Scientific Director of the Masters in Aesthetic Medicine and Cosmetology of the Pegaso University.
