Preface From Prof. Adrian Gaspar
Asking new questions, new possibilities, looking at old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks a real breakthrough in science. Albert Einstein
It is an honor for me, to be able to write a few introductory words in this wonderful book. It is common for doctors to look in a book perhaps for the chapter that we are interested in consulting, because obviously we do not have time for more. However, this story may be very familiar to many readers. At the beginning of this millennium I remember how in my daily medical practice hundreds of women year after year complained of problems related to well-being and the quality of sexual life. Curiously, I felt limited by not being able to offer them any valid alternative that could at least alleviate them and thus obtain some benefit for them in this regard. Perhaps this was the trigger that made me twist the cour-se of my professional career as a gynecologist and I began my journey towards what we now know as “Functional and Aesthetic. Regenerative Gynecology”. Definitely the book that you are about to enjoy is in my opinion one of the most important written works of this new specialty in this century. It complies in each of its chapters with the proposed educational objectives. In a clear and complete way, it not only shows each of the procedures but also allows us the integration of concepts to be able to apply them all in our daily practice. When the term “Aesthetic Gynecology” was introduced in 1996 it only app-lied to surgical corrections in the genital area. As in all evolution in medicine, it began, with the passing of the years, to emerge innovators that contributed new techniques not only surgical but also (as in my personal case with the laser), minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures to be applied in the office. After 25 years of evolution, a large number of procedures have been developed with not only aesthetic but also regenerative and functional purposes in gynecology, which gave rise to this new specialty. Today we are living an unprecedented time, rather exceptional, that will go down in history and that will mark a before and after (due to a pandemic), where the demand for wellness procedures increased in an incredible way. The desire to be well, to improve the biological state prevailed over any other desire in the area of health. In the same way, the demand for procedures in Aesthetic, Regenerative and Functional Gynecology is growing almost exponentially. This means that gynecologists have to supply ourselves with information and we must incorporate new tools to be able to face this growing demand. In this sense, I want to emphasize that this work fills that empty space that we as women’s health professionals have. Regarding the author of this marvel of a book, I just have to say that beyond his vast experience in Aesthetic Gynecology, he is one of the few doctors (if not the only one) in the world who, from the humility that only great people have, has the immense generosity of transmitting absolutely all the information, and more as well. Has accumulated experiences, and more than a thousand proce-dures in the specialty, so as to be able to write and transmit all that world of knowledge that will enrich us for the benefit of our patients. I invite you then to walk the path of Regenerative and Functional Aesthetic Gynecology with the help of Dr Suleyman Eserdag who will show us how exciting and innovative this concept can mean for our clinical practice. Through each of its pages and each of its chapters, the reader will have a different and attractive feeling, which will go beyond the information they can find in it. I am referring to the passion and motivation that you will find between the lines. Finally, as a gynecologist dedicated one hundred percent to Regenerative and Functional Aesthetic Gynecology, I would like to convey a message to you and at the same time share a concern with the reader. My message is simple: aging and deterioration is a continuous process that can have consequences on the quality of life. The concern that I want to share with you is that we must be proactive, that is, take action before the symptoms of deterioration occur. For that we have today an innumerable amount of techniques that you will be able to discover in this beautiful written work. I invite you then to enjoy its pages.
