Plastic surgery and otolarynology are an example of two surgical specialties which intersect, allowing for clinical and research collaboration. Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Clinical Reference Guide gives reference to a number of different principles which have been combined in order to develop reconstructive techniques for conditions affecting the soft tissue facial appendages, as well as aesthetic techniques to improve the appearance of the ageing face.

This compact first edition paperback is an easily readable textbook which addresses many aspects of facial plastic surgery. The book consists of multiple chapters, by multi-authors, with a summary of the key points being discussed. The main text provides concise, comprehensive information, which provides the reader with an in-depth, wide-ranging insight into all aspects of facial aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.

Included in the text are excellent illustrations, which provide a visual aid to help the reader consolidate their understanding of the procedures being described.

I found this up-to-date factual book to be well-written and relatively concise. Its easy readability will make it both appealing and useful for students, trainees and experts. I myself, as a junior trainee, will consult it on a regular basis, especially prior to performing a particular facial plastic surgical procedure and also as a useful adjunct when revising for the FRCS examination.
