Books Description:

A collection of minimally invasive facial rejuvenation techniques are examined to answer the question: Are they replacing more traditional/aggressive surgical procedures? This clinical and surgical information in Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics examines the increasing use of less invasive procedures and addresses how these are changing the surgeon’s traditional approaches. . .15-minute rhinoplasty, 1-hour facelift, lunchtime laser treatment, 5-minute Botox . .all are very much in the public consciousness and facial plastic surgeons address minimally invasive procedures with the question: Do they work? What is the evidence in terms of outcomes for each of the procedures addressed? What are the challenges? Authors compare a minimally invasive technique with its more invasive procedure counterpart in facial rejuvenation and provide their own experience and sense of ultimate long-term results, technique, complications, contraindications, recovery, patient selection. Endoscopic brow lift is compared with coronal brow lift; Necklifts are compared with cervical skin tightening devices; Facial fillers are compared with facial implants; Fractional and ablative CO2 resurfacing are compared; Rhinoplasty versus fillers; and more. . .Guest Editor Theda Kontis leads this presentation intended for facial plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons, and other specialists who are certified to practice cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Lisa Ishii and Dr. Travis Tollefson, editors of this publication, are at the forefront of clinical use of and research into evidence based surgery. The Oxford Centre system of evidence is used for this issue. Currently, evidence is dominant in the reconstructive aspect, moreso than the cosmetic aspect; as such, this resource focuses on the nerve and microvascular procedures. Topics include Facial vascular anomalies, Cleft lip and palate; Trauma; Facial reanimation; System reviews and metanalyses; and Skin care, Laser treatments; and Rhinoplasty. Audience for this resource is facial plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, laser therapists, dermatologists, and skin researchers.

Books Description:

While every facial plastic surgeon is trained in hair restoration, unless one does it frequently in practice, there are techniques, tips, and approaches to be learned from experts in this field who focus solely on hair transplantation and restoration. Techniques, Complications, Medical Treatment, and Medical Diagnosis are covered for Donor Harvesting and Management of the Donor Site; Hairline Design and Frontal Hairline Restoration; Management of Advanced Hair Loss Patterns; Repair of the Unsuccessful Hair Restoration; Tissue Expansion for Scalp Reconstruction; Imposters of Andogenetic Alopecia: Diagnostic Pearls for the Hair Restoration Surgeon; and more. This clinically focused information is intended for the facial plastic surgeon whose practice is not a majority of hair restoration and for surgeons who might want to grow their hair practice. Editors Raymond Konior and Steven Gabel lead this review in Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics. When asked why hair transplantation and restoration is of compelling interest, Dr Konior explains that he decided to limit his practice solely to hair restoration because it is a life altering procedure for patients: “People cannot believe the outcome - they come to me post-restoration and are so happy with their new appearance, telling me how much their lives are changed. Whether for job or career or personal reasons, this procedure has a positive outcome for them.
