Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This book focuses on cosmetic procedures for the head and neck, chosen for their reliability and reproducibility.
Purpose: The authors want to highlight cosmetic procedures in a book that does not overwhelm readers with extraneous information. The goal was to provide the information in an atlas format that is clearly illustrated and written. Although the book reviews the rudimentary concepts necessary for surgery and achieves these goals, it falls short of meeting the needs of the intended audience, which includes novice surgeons.
Audience: Experts share their expertise in cosmetic surgical techniques, clearly delivering their information. However, readers would need a more extensive background to get the most out of this book. Chapters need a bit more honing to meet the needs of the intended audience of inexperienced surgeons.
Features: The 46 chapters present cosmetic surgery techniques that are fairly easy to grasp for those with prior experience. Contributors describe the procedures and accompany them with clear illustrations, pearls of wisdom, pitfalls to avoid, and photographic documentation. Various aspects of facelift and nasal surgery are well represented, while other procedures, such as ear reshaping, get minimal attention. In general, however, the book covers the gamut of procedures in the head and neck area. The face, eyes, brows, nose, neck, and chin are represented, along with hair transplantation, facial fillers, chemodenervation, alloplastic augmentation, and fat grafting, as well as sedation techniques.
Assessment: This book is well organized and easy to read. However, on its own it provides insufficient information to enable surgeons to perform these procedures without prior exposure and training. It is, however, an excellent resource for experienced surgeons as a quick refresher.
