The Congruent Facelift: A Three-dimensional View 1st ed. 2018 Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319690892]

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.

Anesthesia in Cosmetic Surgery 1st Edition

[amazon template=banner easy&asin=0521870909]

One major by-product of the aging baby-boom generation is a surging interest in cosmetic surgery. Although procedures like facelifts and abdominoplasties (the ‘tummy-tuck’) are considered minimally invasive, the anesthetic protocols and regimens here are often overly complex and unnecessarily toxic. This reference will focus on all of the procedures that the anesthesiologist needs to be proficient in to adequately care for this group of patients. Perioperative care and pain management will be covered for the full spectrum of operations, and there will be special emphasis on level-of-consciousness monitoring of these patients.

Ear Reconstruction 2nd ed. 2017 Edition

[amazon template=image&asin=3319503936]

This book comes to its second edition intending to broaden the discussion about the plastic surgical techniques for the reconstruction of the ear. It features a more in-depth discussion of the topics previously addressed, including chapters on microtia, anotia, the upper pole, auricular lobule and complications during and following ear surgery. Furthermore, it addresses a wide variety of deformities of the auricle and surgical topics that were not included in the previous edition, such as:
  • Reconstruction of the tragus and creation of the external auditory canal – key considerations when planning or performing a reconstruction of the ear.
  • New concepts on the surgical anatomy of the ear – essential knowledge for plastic surgeons when performing the operation.
  • Traumatic amputation of the ear – a common and severe social and organic problem. Discussions are presented that address the cause of the problem, as well as guidelines for surgeons during first aid in order to provide adequate reconstruction.
  • Ear reconstruction for reparation of deformities caused by piercing
  • Reconstruction of the auricle secondarily to prominent ear surgery
  • Reconstruction of the ear after human and animal bite
  • Secondary reconstruction of the ear
  • Reduction otoplasty – an important procedure whenever the size of the ear negatively impacts the patient’s wellbeing or self-esteem due to imbalanced facial contours. Features important notes on a procedure that leaves inconspicuous scars and creates a normal and natural appearance of the organ’s architecture.
  • Post-operative care – special information on how to optimally avoid complications after surgery.
Reconstruction of the ear is required in a variety of patients, especially in those with congenital anomalies and associated deformities or those suffering from accidents and trauma affecting the auricle. In this sense, this surgical approach has the ultimate goal of improving aesthetic and functional aspects of congenital and acquired anomalies of the ear. Throughout the book, the goal is to share the author’s experience, gathered in the course of 43 years dedicated to this challenging field. Descriptions and illustrative photos concerning correction and reconstruction of the auricle caused by prominent ear surgery are presented in detail. The didactic approach, supplemented by color illustrations and surgical photos, helps to demonstrate basic and advanced techniques alike. With forewords by Ivo Pitanguy and Jorge Psillakis.
