Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a comprehensive and practical guide to performing facial surgical procedures, and contains a balance of aesthetic and reconstructive procedures that mirrors typical European practice.
It has arisen as an initiative of the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (EAFPS), and in accordance with this status is a comprehensive book that gives a complete update on the speciality as it is practised in Europe. The contributors have many years of clinical practice as well as research experience in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
The book's practical 'how-to' style is amply supported with excellent line illustrations and colour photographs, and serves as a comprehensive reference for surgeons in clinical practice as well as in training. Each chapter is structured within a uniform framework to increase the accessibility of the text, and in this way improves the book's utility as a textbook for trainees.
