Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A comprehensive guide to the essential elements of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, to serve young physicians just beginning plastic surgery practice as a foundation for further study. --SciTech Book NewsA comprehensive yet concise overview...easy to read...well organized and complete. The detailed reference section following each chapter is beneficial, providing a valuable resource for further reading and investigation. This book...will undoubtedly be a valuable resource to residents, fellows, and less experienced facial plastic surgeons looking to expand their education. --Ryan B. Scannell, MD, Department of Otolaryngology, University of Michigan HospitalThis book has attained its intended goal of being the scaffolding onto which one builds knowledge and eventually the expertise to become a competent facial plastic surgeon.--Doody's Book Reviews
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This is a primer for individuals wishing to obtain a solid basis in facial surgery with an emphasis on congenital deformities, trauma, soft tissue malignancies, and a briefer overview of cosmetic surgical enhancement procedures.
Purpose: The book is formulated to provide background information that will serve as a foundation for future endeavors in the area of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Audience: The authors and editors are otolaryngologists who have expertise in their respective areas. Each topic is summarized at a basic knowledge level for those entering or having just commenced study in this field. The core information targets residents, fellows, and newly minted graduates engaged in the practice of facial plastic surgery.
Features: By blending basic science with clinical applications, the authors provide readers with practical information, whether on congenital deformities, skin lesions, maxillofacial trauma or cosmetic surgery of the nose and face. This six-chapter text is easily read in a single sitting. There are a host of black-and-white photographs and illustrations which enhance understanding. Although references are broad, they lack the contemporary insight which tracks changing trends in materials and techniques. Each chapter is written with a single author's voice, making it a personal editorial monologue. Interspersed throughout each topic are succinct "pearls" that should be internalized by the reader. Each chapter unfolds with an overview of basic anatomy and a historical perspective before delving into the clinical assignment.
Assessment: This book has attained its intended goal of being the scaffolding onto which one builds knowledge and eventually the expertise to become a competent facial plastic surgeon.
