Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This book details the most commonly done procedures in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery excerpted from the six-volume, Plastic Surgery, 3rd edition (Elsevier, 2012).
Purpose: The techniques chosen for this book were vetted by a focus group that determined the prevalence of these procedures in day-to-day practice. A group of authoritative authors has contributed to this book.
Audience: The primary audience is surgeons whose practice includes both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Features: The book focuses on the most common procedures for the eyelids, face, nose, abdomen, breast, cleft lip, lower and upper extremities, tendons of the hand and upper extremity, nerve transfer, and local flaps for facial coverage. Procedures include both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Photographs, illustrations, and schematic diagrams are excellent. Pearls of wisdom dot the chapters, as do key concepts of anatomy, relevant techniques, and information about preoperative and postoperative care and unwanted complications. A scratch-off PIN allows readers access to a website where they can view various operative procedures. Unfortunately, they fall short of the excellent quality of the book's visuals and informative format.
Assessment: The techniques chosen for this book are, indeed, relevant to the day-to-day practice of plastic surgeons.
