If plastic surgeons are to provide state-of-the-art care in the techniques of skin rejuvenation and minimally invasive treatments
for aging, a thorough understanding of skin, anatomy, and physiology is required. With the changing population demographics,
the plastic surgeon must also be knowledgeable about ethnic variations in skin anatomy and physiology. The changes that occur
with aging skin, inherent developmental disorders, and development of skin cancers are complex. This chapter provides a practical
guide to the understanding of skin and its application to clinical conditions.
