    Description:

    Written by internationally renowned facial plastic surgeon and prolific author E. Gaylon McCollough, The Elite Facial Surgery Practice: Development and Management offers 40 years of wisdom, all in one remarkable book. Instead of describing step-by-step techniques like traditional facial surgery textbooks, this exemplary guide covers issues rarely discussed in clinical literature.

    From preparing for a career in facial plastic surgery to everything it takes to achieve long-term excellence in clinical practice, readers will learn hard-earned trade secrets from this legend of facial plastic surgery. Much of the focus is on the enduring doctor/patient relationship, with discussion on how to attain and maintain patient confidence, deliver personalized post-operative care, and manage dissatisfied patients.

    Key Features

    • Part I provides all the necessary steps for building a thriving facial surgery practice including selecting the right training, the golden rule of facial surgery, creating the ideal environment to deliver extraordinary care, the image of an elite facial surgeon, and leveraging social media.
    • Part II and III cover core facial surgery procedures including minimally invasive and noninvasive methods. Enhanced with before and after photos, these chapters focus on indications for surgery, the aging process, facts versus myths, selecting the right approach, and lessons learned.
    • Part IV reveals invaluable insights on topics most clinicians keep close to the vest such as how to create and maintain best practice models, dealing with unfortunate outcomes, managing and minimizing the risk of legal proceedings, and defending oneself in court.

    Aspiring and veteran facial surgeons alike will benefit from the invaluable pearls bestowed by an elite master who built a great foundation for next generations. Read this book cover to cover to enhance your surgical and business acumen - and ultimately - become a more compassionate, effective practitioner.

    Description:

    Highly practical eyelid surgery resource informs important reconstruction decisions and strategies

    Skin malignancies frequently affect the periocular area, necessitating excision followed by eyelid reconstruction. Periocular trauma is also quite common, and because of the highly complex regional anatomy, requires expertise for effective reconstruction. Preparation by ophthalmic plastic surgeons prior to periorbital reconstruction is often not possible due to the unpredictability of defects left after Mohs micrographic surgeons clear tumor margins or in cases of trauma. Eyelid Reconstruction by renowned expert Suzanne Freitag and esteemed coeditors N. Grace Lee, Daniel Lefebvre, and Michael Yoon fills a void in the literature. The book provides a quick and practical ophthalmic plastic surgery guide on how to plan and perform a full spectrum of periocular reconstruction procedures.

    The textbook is a compilation of patient cases and the authors' vast, richly diverse expertise. The book starts with two chapters covering complex periorbital anatomy and basic surgical principles, both of which are critical to performing safe and effective surgery. The third chapter provides a comprehensive overview of Mohs surgery in the periorbital area, an important topic given many defect reconstructions are secondary to Mohs micrographic surgical excisions. Subsequent chapters, organized by anatomic region, feature discussion of surgical approaches for reconstructions of various size and depth defects. The final chapter details eyelid trauma repair, including lid margin and lacrimal lacerations.

    Key Features:

    An essential go-to pre- or peri-operative reference surgeons can consult quickly as reconstruction cases arise

    Practical and concise procedural descriptions accompanied by numerous high-quality photographs and illustrations enhance comprehension

    Chapters dedicated to medial canthus, lower eyelid, upper eyelid, and lateral canthus reconstruction procedures discuss special considerations based on underlying anatomy, adnexal structures, and required functions

    This is a must-have resource for residents, fellows, and experienced surgeons in the fields of ophthalmic plastic surgery, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, dermatology, Mohs surgery, and maxillofacial surgery.

    In the 10 years since malignant melanoma was last covered in Clinics in Plastic Surgery, significant changes have occurred in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease.  Sentinel lymph node biopsy has now become the standard of care in melanoma.   The staging system was totally revamped in 2002, taking into account the significance of ulceration and the information gained during sentinel node biopsy.  With more than 60,000 patients diagnosed each year with malignant melanoma, the plastic surgeon must continue to be pivotal in the management of patients with this disease, coordinating care among the specialists and being integral in all aspects of surgery and follow-up.

    Description:

    An informative, go-to guide on common plastic surgery principles and practices

    Plastic Surgery: A Practical Guide to Operative Care by Bruce Mast fills the gap between existing pocket handbooks and encyclopedic library shelf editions. The book is geared towards plastic surgeons early in their careers. The focus is on commonly encountered conditions and is not intended to be an all-inclusive resource. All the surgical chapters are uniformly organized, with discussion of goals and objectives, patient presentation, surgery preparation, treatment, postoperative care, outcomes, and questions.

    The book is divided into eight sections, starting with science and principles which discusses impacted anatomy and different techniques such as grafts, flaps, microsurgery, lasers, and radiant energy. Subsequent sections cover skin and tissue conditions; pediatric plastic surgery; reconstructive and aesthetic craniofacial techniques; hand and upper extremity reconstruction; breast surgery inclusive of augmentation, mastopexy, reduction, reconstruction, and oncoplastic approaches; chest, trunk, and lower extremity reconstruction; and body contouring techniques including liposuction, abdominoplasty, and lower body lift.

    Key Features:

    Five post-reading questions at the end of every chapter provide readers the opportunity to think about what they read, thereby improving retention of newly acquired knowledge

    CME-type presentation formatting provides a robust learning and teaching tool

    Online videos elucidate procedures and convey additional didactic information

    More than 700 high quality illustrations enhance understanding of impacted anatomy and techniques

    Highly practical, this is an essential surgical companion for medical students to consult during plastic surgery rotations and plastic surgery residents throughout residency. Plastic surgeons in the first five years of practice will also benefit from this user-friendly refresher.

    DESCRIPTION:

    In the innovative field of cosmetic dermatology, the range of products and methods available to patients is expanding all the time. Prominent among these are facial fillers, which, when injected into and beneath the skin, help alleviate wrinkles and improve smoothness. However, the many fillers on offer have varying characteristics and effects, and practitioners must be properly trained in order to administer them safely and successfully.

    Injectable Fillers offers those performing these popular procedures an in-depth and far-reaching survey of current best practices, with a strong emphasis on safety. Covering everything from the science behind facial fillers to their appropriate means of application, the book places each product in context, demonstrating the pros and cons of the expanding range of hyaluronic acids and calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, and exploring injectable submental fat reduction with sodium deoxycholate. This second edition broadens the scope of discussion to also include chin, mandible, temple, nose, brow, and forehead injections, as well as the use of cannulas as an alternative to needles.

    Description:

    Liposuction is currently the number one aesthetic surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons in the United States and Americans spend more money on liposuction than on any other aesthetic surgical procedure. Almost 500,000 cases are currently performed yearly by board certified plastic surgeons and it is estimated that at least 20% of the cases are ultrasound assisted. Current ultrasonic liposuction devices are significantly different than the previous generations and require a certain level of technical expertise in order to achieve good outcomes with the technique. Although there are chapters devoted to the technique in general body contouring textbooks, there are no current textbooks that fully cover this important technique. The text is divided into three distinct sections for ease of use. Section I: Fundamentals will cover basic techniques and safe use of the devices for plastic surgeons looking to add ultrasound-assisted liposuction to their practice. Section II: Clinical Applications explores use of the devices for commonly performed surgeries, including facial, trunk, extremity (arm and leg), and buttock contouring as well as gynecomastia. Section III: Special Applications takes a focused look at the VASER device and its use in more complicated situations, with chapters handling silicone injection complications and contouring in a massive weight loss patient.  Featuring contributions from leaders in the field, alongside full color photos and a special introductory video, Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction serves as a reference for surgeons currently using ultrasonic techniques in liposuction  and those looking to get started.

    Description:

    Intended as a companion to the recently published, Evidence-Based Cosmetic Breast Surgery (978-3-319-53957-7), Evidence-Based Body Contouring Surgery and VTE Prevention once again concentrates on the science, relying on data rather than expert opinion. In his familiar detail-oriented style, Eric Swanson critically evaluates popular body contouring procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, arm lifts, thigh lifts, and buttock fat transfer. The source material is published in the major peer-reviewed plastic surgery journals. The conclusions frequently challenge conventional wisdom.  Fat redistribution theory is dispelled. A unique chapter titled “The Metabolic Effect of Liposuction” reveals some surprising positive effects of liposuction. The limitations of alternative nonsurgical treatments are the subject of a chapter titled “Evaluating New Technologies.”  A novel chapter describes SAFE (Spontaneous breathing, Avoid gas, Face up, Extremities mobile) anesthesia as a replacement for traditional general endotracheal anesthesia – lowering risk, minimizing blood loss, and reducing recovery times.  The last two chapters will have many readers reconsidering traditional methods of venous thromboembolism (VTE) prevention. Chapter 12 exposes the shortcomings of risk prediction methods and routine anticoagulation. The final chapter describes the use of ultrasound for VTE surveillance. These chapters will likely find an audience among surgeons from all specialties and anesthesiologists. For scientifically inclined readers, whether seasoned surgeons or residents, this unique resource may well lead to evidence-based changes in their practices.

    Description:

    When the first edition of this atlas was published in 2002, it was well received throughout the oculoplastic and ophthalmology community for its simplicity and clinical focus.  Now, a decade later, surgical techniques have been updated to reflect current practice models and advances in technology. The field of oculoplastic surgery has grown and evolved to include all aspects of eyelid and facial plastic surgery and the literature must now reflect the advancements of this field. Oculoplastic Surgery Atlas: Eyelid and Lacrimal Disorders, 2nd edition combines text and diagrams, plus surgical videos that enable readers to perform this surgery with the best possible instruction and preparation. Written for ophthalmology specialists and residents, this new edition presents many aspects of facial cosmetic surgery, including lacrimal anatomy, nasolacrimal duct disorders, canaliculitis, and canalicular involving eyelid laceration. Reviews of the previous edition: " It is the work of the well-known Detroit oculoplastic group … . When one reads through this book … there really is nothing else that is needed in terms of teaching of oculoplastic surgery. … This is a book which I would strongly recommend to those engaged in this specialty … . I highly recommend it to all trainees and to those who feel that their knowledge may be a little rusty … ." (I. T. Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 26 (8), 2004) "The book is intended for ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists, plastic and general surgeons who want a better understanding of eyelid surgery. It succeeds in providing a practical guide for the practitioner … . The standard of the content is on the whole high. The surprise bonuses are the two compact discs inside the back cover. Here the reader/viewer is treated to a high-quality, well-edited digital video of oculoplastic surgery. … This is the first multi-media surgical atlas I have seen and it represents a valuable educational tool." (Susan Hague, Eye News, Vol. 9 (3), 2002)

    Description:

    The thorax has a fundamental role in the aesthetic of the male body: congenital or acquired alterations are experienced as extremely frustrating clinical situations. Most breast surgery texts briefly mention  gynecomastia, but no text comprehensively addresses the male breast and thorax, including reconstructive and cosmetic surgery and surgery in transgender patients. This gap is now thoroughly filled by Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery of the Male Breast: after introducing principles of anatomy and aesthetics for the male thorax, the first part focusses on the main congenital malformations and their treatment; the main benign acquired pathologies and their treatment (including an ample section dedicated to gynecomastia), the carcinoma of the male breast, with reference to familiar forms; the treatment of carcinoma and reconstruction of the thorax. The book closes with a chapter dedicated to breast surgery in transgender patients. While female breast surgery is increasingly practiced in specific Breast Units and highly specialized centers, male breast issues are treated in general and plastic surgeries units. This handy volume is a sound reference for the most complex clinical cases, and the latest reconstruction treatments for the male thorax and will be useful for general and thoracic surgeons, plastic surgeons and senologists.

    Description:

    Given the wide-ranging nature of the literature one must study in plastic surgery training, a solid grounding in many fundamental principles and procedures is an absolute prerequisite to becoming a competent plastic surgeon. And yet, until now there has been no single source that collects these fundamental topics in one volume; rather, the information has had to be gleaned from the introductory chapters of multiple comprehensive textbooks. The present volume takes a new approach, and provides the trainee an opportunity to learn these fundamentals more efficiently and comprehensively through a single book.

    This work will prepare the trainee to confidently advance to the more specific core topics in reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery.

    Key Features:

    Highly efficient presentation and organization of all fundamental plastic surgical topics

    21 chapters cover such topics as patient safety; normal and abnormal wound healing; local anesthesia and nerve blocks; soft tissue infections and antibiotics; implants and biomaterials; basic surgical techniques; grafting of fat, skin, bone, and other tissues; flaps; burns; and much more.

    Each chapter closes with a summary of key points.

    Ideal for all surgeons in training, Fundamental Topics in Plastic Surgery is a complete introduction to the science and technical expertise of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.

    The gliding nature and dynamic planes of the face present one of the great challenges in aesthetic surgery and volume replenishment is a key component of the treatment algorithm. Facial Volumization: An Anatomic Approach by Jerome Lamb and Christopher Surek masterfully bridges the gap between the anatomy lab and injection clinic. It synthesizes a large body of facial anatomy publications into a "one-stop shop" covering a wide array of facial procedures - from the chin and perioral - to the midface and temple.

    In addition to vascular injury, lymphatic disruption can play a critical role in suboptimal aesthetic facial volumization outcomes. Chapter 2, The Lymphatic Anatomy of the Lower Eyelid and the Malar Region of the Face discusses new state-of-the art facial lymphatic discoveries.

    Key Features:

    • Numerous beautiful, full-page color illustrations systematically reveal each layer of the face - from deep to superficial - taking readers on a unique journey through the 3-D architecture of complex facial anatomy.
    • The left side of each page features a written synopsis of the vascular, muscular, ligament, and adipose components of specific layers paired with cadaveric dissection photographs.
    • More than 20 high-definition live patient injection videos posted in the Thieme online Media Center include detailed injector commentary.
    • Augmentation and enhancement techniques, the latest facial fillers and lip injections, and illustrated guidance on preferred volumization approaches.

    Description:

    This book deals with a special form of facial rejuvenative surgery, which considers the three-dimensional anatomy of the face and benchmarks it against biomechanical models of the face. Traditional approaches to the ageing human face have been based on a two-dimensional approach. The authors, however, consider the human face using a three-dimensional platform that reflects height, width and depth and thus defines spatial divisions or pilasters. The anatomically accurate and bio-physically based three-dimensional computational models, originally used to simulate facial expressions and subsequently in the dynamic evaluation of the various soft tissues, offer a valuable new tool for surgical techniques. The book is divided into four chapters, the first of which describes the historical developments, evolution of facelift procedures and review of traditional two-dimensional approach. The second chapter presents three-dimensional surgical anatomy of the face and neck with the introduction of "facial pilasters". Treating the human face as a collection of compliant and rigid structural components which obey engineering principles and its biomechanical behaviour is discussed in chapter three. The last chapter provides the reader comprehensive information on the surgical procedure for contour vector congruent facelift, including case studies. An alternative approach (Rejuvenative Facial Lipomorphoplasty) to the de-volumed ageing face with little sagging and skin excess is introduced together with case studies. This book was motivated by the desire to define the key steps in facelift techniques and provides an essential guide for young plastic surgeons, as well as experienced surgeons who are dissatisfied with the current two-dimensional platform.

    Description:

     

    Obesity has become a worldwide epidemic. An increasing number of patients are undergoing weight loss procedures, resulting in an increase in patients with massive weight loss desiring body contouring surgeries. These patients can present with very challenging deformities of skin laxity, and are at higher risk of complications. Most texts only provide a chapter with basic descriptions of procedures for managing moderate deformities, with short discussions of complications. Managing Body Contouring Challenges and Complications offers comprehensive insight on the management of the most complex deformities after weight loss. Procedures are described in a step-by-step fashion, including small pearls of knowledge. This book also includes complex subjects not addressed in other books such as arm band deformities in brachioplasty, gluteal crease elongation in lower body lifting, recurrent saddlebag deformities, breast implant problems in massive weight loss, and many other topics.  Managing Body Contouring Challenges and Complications focuses on the most challenging deformities and how to optimize results. Disappointing long term results are used to teach key areas of difficulty or potential pitfalls to avoid. This book also highlights evidence-based outcomes data from large studies to help guide surgical decision making.

    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.

    Description:

    Written by international experts, this book describes different techniques for abdominoplasty. It starts with a functional anatomy description of the abdomen, followed by a brief overview of current techniques. With the help of numerous illustrations, the reader will gain detailed knowledge of how to perform the inverse full abdominoplasty, the inverse mini abdominoplasty (with and without floating umbilicus) and the secondary inverse abdominoplasty. Lastly, ancillary procedures that can be used in conjunction with inverse abdominoplasty are discussed. By also addressing the potential complications of this surgical procedure, the book offers essential guidelines for surgeons dealing with a variety of problems in the surgery of the abdominal area. Although abdominoplasty is one of the oldest procedures in plastic surgery, new approaches like high lateral tension abdominoplasty have refined the technique and its aesthetic outcomes. Still, problems remain like the length of the procedure, difficulties of dissection of long flaps, lack of elasticity in the flaps due to previous surgery, scars at the surgical site, unfavorable aesthetic outcomes, and variable challenges during the postoperative period, like wound healing and pain. Particularly, secondary abdominal surgery remains a technical challenge, from decision to application.

    Reconstruction of congenital and acquired abnormalities or defects – both functional and aesthetic – is a major challenge, as is individualized treatment in the case of diagnostically verified transsexualism. Surgical procedures in this highly sensitive body region require unusually detailed knowledge of the anatomy and a well-founded operative training, which goes beyond specialist training.

    Written by a panel of European experts in genital surgery, the work successfully links the fields of plastic surgery, gynecology, urology, and dermatology.

    Key Features:

    The specialized surgical techniques can be quickly reviewed and understood by means of concise texts and more than 300 illustrations

    Complications and complication management are directly integrated into the chapters and facilitate a realistic assessment of the risks while suggesting appropriate therapy of the complications themselves

    Numerous case studies illustrate the many facets of the subject using many highquality color photographs and graphics

    Special chapter on genital surgery in the pediatric population, including ectopic testes, phimosis, hypospadias, vaginal malformations, rectovaginal fistulas, and more.

    Reconstructive and Aesthetic Genital Surgery will be a much-welcomed guide for the surgeon becoming acquainted with the complexities and controversies of genital surgery.

    Description:

    Facial Reconstruction after Mohs Surgery

    The growing worldwide incidence of melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers has driven the development of effective treatment methodologies. Mohs is the gold standard surgical treatment for excision of skin cancers on the head and neck. While Mohs surgery has a 99% effectiveness rate for new cancers and 95% for recurrences, more than 90% of reconstructed patients desire some improvement in their operative scars.

    Facial Reconstruction after Mohs Surgery by James Thornton and Jourdan Carboy summarizes 15 years and 12,000 cases in a surgical practice devoted to post-Mohs facial reconstruction. Step-by-step guidance is provided on efficacious, aesthetically pleasing, and functionally complete repairs, respective of a patient's age, anesthesia considerations, and available resources. In addition to succinct chapters on lip, ear, cheek, scalp, and nasal reconstruction, subspecialty chapters cover anesthesia, Mohs surgery, oculoplastic surgery, and microvascular reconstruction. Throughout the text, complete and concise clinical algorithms serve as a framework to help simplify difficult clinical concepts.

    Key Highlights:

    General techniques including wound care, skin and cartilage grafts; and local and pedicled flaps

    The management of intraoperative, acute, and late healing stage complications; scar optimization and revision surgeries

    Additional procedural guidance provided in 20 high quality video clips posted in the Thieme MediaCenter

    Nearly 500 full-color photos and precise drawings add a rich visual dimension and show stepwise operative sequences

    This book is comprehensive resource on tried and true techniques for soft tissue reconstruction after Mohs cancer resection. It is essential reading for plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery and dermatology residents and clinicians with practices devoted to facial plastic surgery.

    Description:

    Breast augmentation paired with mastopexy is often regarded as a challenging procedure since it is essentially two surgeries in one. Because of the complexity of the dual procedure, as well as the careful planning required, many doctors avoid performing these surgeries together, instead preferring their patient to undergo two separate surgeries.These two procedures can be safely performed with methodical planning and intra operative execution. This book provides not only insight and instruction on a variety of mastopexy procedures and accompanying types of breast augmentation, but it will also help the clinician determine the optimal surgery for each individual patient. Primarily meant for practicing aesthetic plastic surgeons, Augmentation Mastopexy -- Mastering the Art in the Management of the Ptotic Breast will also find use among plastic surgery fellows and plastic surgery residents. Unlike some of the competitive literature that briefly touches on the topic or simply provides an overview, the information provided is methodical and comprehensive, providing a wealth of color images to accompany the techniques described. Case studies with long-term follow up are also included, offering not only an understanding of potential pitfalls but a veritable how-to for handling complications when they do arise.

    This atlas provides a concise overview of the principle of fat grafting and its clinical applications to treat aging in the central areas of the face in a minimally invasive manner. The authors start with a short description of the anatomical basis of facial aging and by presenting current facial rejuvenation techniques. Here the emphasis is on the process of harvesting and preparing macro-, micro-, intradermal and nano-fat for injection. Thanks to the book’s numerous illustrations and short descriptions, readers will find valuable information on where and how to inject the fat combined with the authors’ individual techniques and refinements. Aging is a major issue in today’s society. Facial rejuvenation procedures seek to enhance the final outcome and durability of surgery and to minimize drawbacks. The current trend is to use less invasive methods requiring fewer incisions, which produce more natural-looking results. This atlas shows the authors’ personal techniques to help achieve that goal.
