About this book

In preparation for the quadrennial international IPRAS conference, leading plastic surgeons worldwide have been asked by the International Confederation for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery to contribute their most up-to-date findings, research results, and experiences in their area of expertise. The book is structured according to the major fields of plastic surgery, and the reader is thus offered insight into the most significant contributions to the international community, as well as into new developments, tricks, and refinements in the field.

This book is about visions and pioneers in the field share their innovations with the reader.

"Innovations in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery" will not only give plastic surgeons up-to-date knowledge of new developments, but will inspire with its innovations, many of which have not been published before.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a compilation of 58 articles spanning the fields of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. The editors have selected writings they consider unique in scope and pioneering in the field. … Because these articles cover disparate areas in the field, those interested in this book may come from a variety of specialties such as plastic surgery, hand surgery, and neurosurgery. … This book is generally beneficial for readers who seeking novel approaches and original ideas in plastic and reconstruction surgery." (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2008)

"As the editors of Innovations in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery state in their preface, plastic surgery is a relatively nascent discipline, one that initially grew out of efforts to address some of the devastating injuries of World War I. … Overall, the international authorship and the generally high quality of presentation make Innovations in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery an attractive addition to any surgeon’s personal library. The chapters … make the book a useful introduction to what defines the specialty today." (Thomas A. Mustoe, Journal of the American Medical Association, October, 2009)
