by Jeffrey E. Janis (Editor)
Essentials of Plastic Surgery is destined to become a favorite with all students of plastic surgery, whether residents in training or experienced practitioners. Small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket, but comprehensive enough to cover the essential topics in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, this exceptional manual is just the resource that you have been looking for. It will prove invaluable as a quick reference in daily practice, when studying for the boards, or simply as a refresher when confronting a difficult clinical problem.
This book evolved from the outstanding plastic surgery training program at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where Dr. Janis trained and is on staff. Contributors are drawn from current residents and fellows from the program who share their practical, hands-on experience.
Concise Yet Comprehensive Coverage
This practical manual provides essential information in a convenient and easily accessible outline format. Composed of 88 chapters, the book is divided into 7 separate sections:
- Fundamentals and Basics
- Skin and Soft Tissue
- Head and Neck
- Trunk and Lower Extremity
- Hand, Wrist, and Upper Extremity
- Aesthetic Surgery
Unlike many handbooks, this book does not skimp on aesthetic surgery information; face lift, neck lift, fillers, and breast augmentation are given equal time with reconstructive topics such as wound healing, flaps, and microsurgery. A detailed bibliography is included at the end of each chapter to direct the reader to additional resource material.
Design Enhances Readability and Practicality
This handbook’s design and organization allow quick and easy reading. The outline format permits optimal coverage of information and facilitates retention and understanding. Bulleted lists, tables, boxes, and numerous illustrations help to illuminate key points and important information. In addition, the two-color design increases the text’s readability and makes it easier to locate information.
No other plastic surgery handbook provides as much information in such a compact format.
