Skin Flaps in Facial Surgery
By Buchen, Daniel

Sharpen your facial surgery skills-by mastering the design and execution of flaps

This practical, all-encompassing sourcebook demystifies the planning and execution of flaps for anyone performing facial surgery. Written by leading facial surgery experts, the book starts with an introductory chapter that highlights the basic principles common to all flaps. Next, you'll get an in-depth look at flap physiology and random flap patterns, such as advancement and rotation flaps… split- and full-thickness grafts… the repair of eyelids, ears, and lips… the replacement of nasal lining and support… and free flaps.

The high-yield coverage features multiple options for any procedure, and is supported by a quick-access format that features lines and arrows superimposed on full-color patient photos-a convenient tool that helps you visualize the design and movement of flaps.
