For more than a decade, Reoperative Aesthetic & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery has been widely regarded as the gold standard for secondary surgery, the best place to find full coverage of the entire spectrum of reoperative scenarios encountered by plastic surgeons.

Hailed as a classic, this book has become a valued resource for surgeons seeking solutions to common surgical problems. It is filled with clinical insights that are enormously beneficial for experienced practitioners confronting complex problems as well as residents studying for the boards.

Comprehensive Coverage
This monumental two-volume reference offers today’s most advanced surgical advice, presented by the world’s foremost plastic surgeons. It covers the range of scenarios requiring reoperation: staged procedures, revision of unsatisfactory results, refinements and finesse procedures, recurrence of disease, and changes associated with aging and complications.

Inspect this brand new edition yourself. You’ll appreciate its logical, thorough instructions for dozens of procedures addressing the entire range of plastic surgery of the head and neck, breast and chest wall, trunk, and extremities. The semi-atlas format makes reading and learning easy. Every step in each procedure is described and illustrated, including special tips, cautions, and clinical caveats you’ll need to consider to address unusual situations or to manage possible complications.

The consistent presentation of each procedure helps to quickly locate and assimilate the information you need. You will also find detailed discussions of the common reasons for reoperation, crucial anatomic considerations, patient evaluation, and timing of reoperation. One chapter delves into the special psychological challenges presented by the reoperative patient with strategies for management. Another, on reoperative rhytidectomy covers new developments in face-lift surgery with attention given to facial shaping, scar concealment, hairline restoration, and midface rejuvenation.
