Principles of Facial Reconstruction
A Subunit Approach to Cutaneous Repair
A beautifully illustrated, multimedia guide to facial soft-tissue reconstruction from leading clinicians
Principles of Facial Reconstruction: A Subunit Approach to Cutaneous Repair, Third Edition by distinguished clinicians Wayne F. Larrabee Jr., David A. Sherris, Jeffrey C. Teixeira, and esteemed contributors presents evidence-based facial reconstruction techniques that simplify flap design based on location and defect. The book's primary focus is soft-tissue defects of moderate size rather than larger flap reconstructions. Building on the acclaimed prior editions, the third edition features new content and images.
Key surgical principles are detailed graphically in an easy-to-navigate, concise layout. The two opening chapters cover a review of soft-tissue biomechanics and physiology, followed by fundamentals of wound closure, wound healing, grafts, and flaps. The seven consistently organized anatomic chapters present a brief overview of the anatomy of the region, followed by succinct descriptions of surgical approaches for relevant subunits in that region. The final two chapters provide details on free flaps and graft harvesting techniques. The reader-friendly format enables quick determination of the most reliable reconstruction options for repair of the scalp, forehead, eyes, nose, cheek, ears, and lips and chin.
- Firsthand experience from renowned experts on the most reliable defect reconstructions
- Full-color clinical photographs, around 500 high-quality illustrations, and diagrams provide precise insights on key surgical concepts
- Following a facial unit principle, decision-making algorithms guide readers on selection of the most effective flap or graft for each case
This is a must-have resource for plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, and oral-maxillofacial surgeons, and dermatology residents and fellows, as well as surgeons specializing in the field of facial plastic surgery.
