Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

by Anthony P Sclafani, Thomas C Spalla

Surgical techniques will prove useful for otolaryngologists by making it easier to provide (and teach) state-of-the-art otolaryngologic surgery. Modern plastic surgery developed out of the necessity to repair the frankly horrific injuries encountered during the First World War. Since then there are lots of changes in the way plastic surgery has been approached with latest technology guide. This Atlas is not intended to be comprehensive. It features the techniques favored by the authors; every practicing facial plastic surgeon knows that each patient is unique, and all surgery must be carefully selected and tailored to the individual. It is impossible to cover every nuance and each modification of every procedure. What we have sought to provide is a broad reference for facial plastic surgical procedures which will assist the reader in his/her approach to facial plastic surgery. As importantly, this volume will provide the necessary foundation to understand and incorporate into practice the variations in physical findings and in technique described in the companion textbook for this Atlas. This text is a useful resource for the reader in the journey through facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
