Bhatt, and esteemed contributors, features new cases in each chapter, as well as updated and expanded content. Like the widely acclaimed prior edition, the book is an excellent resource for plastic surgery residents and trainees of all skill levels, highlighting key adult and pediatric cases commonly featured on the plastic surgery oral board examination.
