Dr. Langdon was a member of the full-time faculty of Yale University School of Medicine, in the Department of Dermatology, from 1984 to 1990.

At Yale, Dr. Langdon conducted clinical research on advanced surgical techniques. With colleagues in Plastic Surgery, he developed a novel skin grafting method that has been adopted around the world. This method was first described in the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet.

In 1990, Dr. Langdon left Yale to pursue more intensive clinical training at the Laser and Dermatology Institute of California in the Los Angeles area. There he learned advanced laser surgery techniques using carbon dioxide and pulsed dye lasers. He also refined his surgical skills for the treatment of skin cancers and for cosmetic improvement.

He has written several chapters in recent surgical textbooks on advanced facial cosmetic surgeries, including minimal incision facelifts, endoscopic brow lifts, and blepharoplasty. 

In 2004, Dr. Langdon’s book for patients Understanding Cosmetic Laser Surgery was published. Dr. Langdon’s book is in the permanent collection of the Harvey Cushing and John Hay Whitney Medical Library, the central library of the Yale School of Medicine. 

The book covers the basics of laser physics and skin physiology, which apply to all generations of cosmetic lasers. Understanding Cosmetic Laser Surgery explains laser technology and its suitability for many cosmetic surgeries. Topics include physiology of the skin, basics of surgical procedures, preparation for surgery, possible risks, and post-operative recovery. This information is presented in clear, jargon-free language that explains how laser procedures are accomplished without damaging the surrounding skin. 

A comprehensive overview that keeps the patient’s perspective in mind, Understanding Cosmetic Laser Surgery is intended for the general reader and those considering this type of elective surgical procedure. The book is available at bookstores, including, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon Kindle.
