Facial Surgery: Plastic and Reconstructive



"This landmark work covers the full range of aesthetic and reconstructive techniques in facial plastic surgery. Because of the coupling of aesthetics and function mandated by modern surgical standards, this book is organized by facial zone, rather than separated into aesthetic and reconstructive segments. The first six chapters highlight the basic principles of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, including anatomy, proportions and beauty, visual documentation, and the principles of wound healing, aging, and flap design. Thereafter, sections are organized by facial zone or structure: the scalp and forehead, the eyelids and orbit, the nose, the ear, the bony facial skeleton, and the facial skin and soft tissue. Each section covers the range of aesthetic and reconstructive subjects relevant to the zone or structure in question. A separate section addresses conditions which affect multiple facial zones or tissues. The final section targets emerging trends and new directions in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, designed to keep the reader both abreast of emerging technology, and intrigued and excited about the future possibilities for the specialty"--Provided by publisher.
