Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This is a fundamental book for those ophthalmic surgeons intrigued by cosmetic facial and eyelid surgery. An enclosed DVD highlights surgical procedures and assists in the exploration of this area.
Purpose: The authors wish to arm their readers with state-of-the-art techniques regarding facial, lid, and brow procedures. The passage of knowledge is always a worthy objective and their efforts are replete with wisdom; nevertheless, this truncated book lacks sufficient depth to fully inform the reader.
Audience: The contributors are mainly ophthalmic surgeons who have an interest in oculoplastic surgery. Although the book is not specifically designed for any particular group of physicians, it would undoubtedly best serve ophthalmic residents and those surgeons wishing to touch upon these topics.
Features: Through the 11 chapters, a concordant theme emphasizing anatomy is presented; indeed, the DVD and anatomical discussions in the book shine the most brilliantly. The remainder of the book delves into surgical procedures of the forehead and brow; face lifting in general with a subsection on the mid-face lift; upper and lower blepharoplasty; and ancillary procedures involving laser, botox, lip and soft tissue augmentation.
Assessment: The laudable goal of expanding the horizons of the authors' colleagues has been achieved with this book and DVD. However, the basic nature of this book requires additional didactic guidance if the reader is to proceed with these surgical explorations.
