  • Provides the reader with a feel for each condition which will provide a logical base for intervention and aid discussions with the patient.
  • Rapid reminder of most significant points and also to act as an instant aide memoire of the subject.
  • Aids clinical case recognition by providing illustrative images.

Plastic Surgery, A Problem Based Approach provides a problem-based approach to solutions for common scenarios in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and serves as a practical guide to managing a plastic surgical case.

This book outlines a pathway through management for the clinician, consisting of six phases:

1) Recognition of the condition: facilitated by high quality images.
2) General approach: provided by an opening “mindset” statement for the particular case.
3) Assessment: the critical aspects of the history and examination.
4) Treatment: key decisions and key interventions.
5) Management: post-intervention expectations.
6) Evidence: the rationale behind the preceding treatment and an overview of any controversies.

Plastic Surgery, A Problem Based Approach is a valuable reference tool for surgical trainees, medical students, healthcare professionals and plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
