Facial Surgery: Plastic and Reconstructive covers the full range of aesthetic and reconstructive techniques in facial plastic surgery. Now presented in two volumes, the set represent the evolution and significant expansion of Dr. Cheney's earlier work that was widely hailed as the first comprehensive resource for facial plastic surgeons. In this new version, Dr. Cheney has teamed up with Dr. Tessa Hadlock as a co-editor. Together they have expanded the scope of the book and the number of contributors to include a global network of world-renowned experts from facial plastic surgery, otolaryngology, and dermatology.
Providing the foundation for the chapters that follow, the first part of the book supplies beautiful anatomic descriptions and important information on facial aging, flap reconstruction, and applied skin physiology. The next chapters include detailed step-by-step illustrations documenting the latest techniques for aesthetic and reconstructive procedures of the eyelids, nose, ears, face, and head and neck. Another section focuses on conditions such as craniofacial syndromes, which affect multiple areas of the face. The final part is devoted to new and exciting developments such as facial transplantation.
This book provides a resource of basic knowledge in facial plastic surgery for residents as well as experienced practitioners. With detailed descriptions of the latest surgical techniques, it captures and highlights meaningful new surgical methods with a deliberate emphasis on evidence-based medicine. The beautifully illustrated text is supplemented by three DVDs containing operative videos.
