Facial Surgery: Plastic and Reconstructive covers the full range of aesthetic and reconstructive techniques in facial plastic surgery. This new book, which arose from an earlier edition, is intended to capture a broader scope of intellectual energy and surgical creativity that globalization of the field and cross-specialty collaborations have fostered, while simultaneously preserving important elements of the historic work at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Harvard Medical School.
Authors from disparate specialties including plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oculoplastic surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, dermatology, and other disciplines have been brought together to produce a text that is intended to represent the best of cross-specialty collaboration.
Providing the foundation for the chapters that follow, the first part of the book supplies extensive anatomic descriptions and important information on facial aging, flap reconstruction, and applied skin physiology. The second part includes detailed step-by-step illustrations documenting the latest techniques for aesthetic and reconstructive procedures of the eyelids, nose, ears, face, and head and neck. The third part focuses on conditions such as paralysis and craniofacial syndromes, which affect multiple areas of the face. The final part is devoted to new and exciting developments such as facial transplantation.
This book provides basic knowledge in facial plastic surgery for residents as well as experienced practitioners. With detailed descriptions of the latest surgical techniques, it captures and highlights meaningful new surgical methods with a deliberate emphasis on evidence-based medicine. The book is accompanied by an eBook, allowing access wherever the surgeon may be, and four DVDs with a wealth of operative videos.
