Returning in a second edition, this book is a beautifully illustrated guide to facial soft-tissue reconstruction, written by leading clinicians who share insights into the most effective techniques for managing a range of problems in this area of surgery.

It opens with a review of soft-tissue biomechanics and physiology and then covers the fundamentals of wound closure, wound healing, grafts, flaps, and dermabrasion. The chapters that follow address defects in specific anatomic regions. Each chapter presents a brief overview of the anatomy of the region and then goes on to provide succinct descriptions of surgical approaches for the relevant subunits in that region. New in this edition is a final chapter that provides detailed discussion of the latest graft harvesting techniques.

Features of the second edition:

  • Algorithms that guide the clinician through treatment options and to the selection of the appropriate flap or graft for each situation
  • More than 300 high-quality illustrations, full-color clinical photographs, and diagrams precisely depicting key surgical concepts
  • Up-to-date coverage of the newest flaps in facial reconstructive surgery
This book is ideal for clinicians and residents in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and trauma management. It will also be a useful reference for dermatologists and ophthalmologists.
