Overview

Subperiosteal, extended sub-SMAS, deep plane, and composite rhytidectomy are all names that have been used to describe the current, more extensive operations for facial rejuvenation. Although these procedures provide superior results, they also involve deeper dissections with the potential for injury to the facial nerves. In order to avoid injury to these nerves, a thorough understanding of their locations is crucial for surgeons performing these operations.

Facial Danger Zones, 2nd Edition, by Dr. Brooke Seckel, provides the key to safety in these procedures. Drawing on his expertise in neurology and plastic surgery, Dr. Seckel has created a practical and beautifully illustrated color atlas to alert surgeons to the facial danger zones encountered in these deep plane face lifts. Divided into seven major facial danger zones, this clinical atlas takes each zone and graphically demonstrates the nerve and consequence of injury, the anatomic borders of each facial danger zone, and the techniques for safe surgical dissection.

If you are performing, or preparing for, the more extensive face-lift procedures, this book will help you avoid the surgical complications of facial nerve damage. It is a must for every plastic surgeon performing face lifts or any facial procedure.

This book contains color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Smith, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book describes the peripheral nerves of the face in their relationship to current esthetic surgical procedures.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as an aid to the surgeon working in the face. The text and illustrations describe the facial nerve and the consequences of injury, its anatomical location, and important features relating to its surgical dissection. The text and the illustrations work well together, outlining the crucial points one must have clearly in mind to avoid these complications. Most attention will likely be directed to the section relating to deep plain or composite face lifts. Surgical techniques to avoid injury in particular danger zones are discussed; however, one would need an understanding of the technique well beyond the scope of this book to be able to apply its recommendations. The text and illustrations clearly and concisely make many relevant points that are the keys to avoiding these dreaded injuries.
Audience: This book was written and illustrated for the practicing plastic surgeon operating in the face. The author knows his material well; the illustrator has clearly shown the nerves and their common anatomical relationships.
Features: The illustrations are splendid in the quality and clarity. The illustrator obviously researched her work thoroughly. The surgical views, the overlay illustrations, and the cross sections correlate well with the author's text. The seven danger zones around which the book is written and illustrated must be mastered by any surgeon who would operate in the face.
Assessment: This is a delightful gem of a book. The text concisely details the anatomy of the nerves of the face (sensory and motor), in particular relating to many of the plastic surgery procedures that put these nerves at risk.
