Continuous technological and surgical innovations provide medical professionals with ever-increasing options. "Within these pages the medical community will discover the most current information on exciting developments in plastic and reconstructive surgery, created by a team of authors -- all of whom are leaders in the field. Core information in each subject area, along with clinical details, are extensively covered and lavishly illustrated. Several new chapters on a wide variety of procedures and treatments such as minimally invasive cosmetic operations are welcome additions to the book," says editor Ira D. Papel, MD, with the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is widely considered one of the most essential books devoted to the area.
