About this book

The dilemma is nearly universal among physicians with busy clinical practices: Information Overload. As textbooks, journal articles, CME programs and certification/recertification exams take time and energy away from practice, the need for cleanly distilled and clinically relevant information becomes more pronounced.

Pearls and Pitfalls in Oculoplastic Cosmetic Surgery attacks Information Overload with quick reference and high yield snapshots of more than 200 cosmetic procedures. The editors and authors are all expert in their fields and offer "here’s how I do it" advice on the most commonly performed procedures. The authors address pre-operative evaluation, procedural pearls, wound healing, complications, and common anesthesia issues. Nearly every case has full color illustrations to bring each case to life.

This concise and practical "how to" book will come down from the bookshelf several times a week as you prep for procedures. Each chapter becomes the voice of an expert and experienced colleague, reminding you of the pearls and pitfalls of each procedure. These pearls will lead to quicker cases, fewer complications, and more satisfactory outcomes for you and your patients.
