Focusing on the questions, problems, and technical solutions most commonly encountered in everyday practice, this compact book will be valuable to both the novice and more experienced surgeon. It is filled with the insights, wisdom, and experience of a leading worldwide expert, and will be kept close at hand as a refresher, teaching guide, encyclopedia of facial plastic techniques, and standard operating room reference."Many patients in facial plastic surgery present with facial defects which may be of traumatic origin or the consequence of oncologic surgery or surgery of congenital defects. The reconstruction of these defects requires careful planning. Professor Weerda#s book provides the surgeon in training and the more experienced practitioner with reproducible solutions to many of the most commonly encountered problems and questions in facial plastic surgery. Surgeons must select the most appropriate surgical solution: a technique indicated in one region of the face might be wrong in adjacent regions. By offering multiple options and alternatives, the book helps the surgeon to select the most appropriate surgical solution. While for the new edition of Professor Weerda#s concise, comprehensive surgical guide, the basic concept has been maintained, the step-by-step drawings have been complemented by or replaced with intraoperative photos and photos of surgical results. The chapters on free flaps and dermabrasion have been expanded, and new chapters on removal of bone from the skull for use in modern defect reconstruction and on instrument sets/trays used in reconstructive facial plastic surgery have been added.
