About this book

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the surgical techniques available in reconstruction of the paralyzed face. It is divided into six parts. The first part introduces the topic of facial palsy, and the following parts provide detailed information on facial nerve reconstruction techniques, management of eye closure and smile reanimation. The book highlights symmetrization techniques and synkinesis and presents innovations and new frontiers in facial palsy.Written by an international group of experts who are committed to maintaining high standards and service in treating this condition and improving outcomes, it is a valuable source of information for clinicians and practitioners in plastic and reconstructive surgery, neurosurgeons and oral-and-maxillofacial surgeons, but also useful for researchers in this field.
