Each chapter presents the actual execution of a specific surgical technique and illustrates the finer points that separate unacceptable from state-of-the-art surgical results. Aesthetic plastic surgery procedures from head-to-toe are covered, including blepharoplasty, rhytidectomy, abdominoplasty, suction-assisted lipectomy, breast augmentation, and lip enhancement. Over 500 photographs and line drawings, with 46 in full color, are the thrust of the book's benefit to the practicing surgeon, as each clearly defines the technical maneuvers essential in achieving flawless results. Prevention of mistakes as well as correction and repair of poor technique are also emphasized - an area that few books stress at all. Truly the most clear-cut technical volume available, this book should be in the hands of all practicing plastic surgeons and residents.
