Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Clinical Reference Guide is a portable reference guide that fills the void of an easy-to-read, concise, but comprehensive book encompassing all aspects of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, both in the clinical setting as well as in preparing for board exams. Each chapter follows a uniform outline to facilitate quick review of a topic, and the comprehensive nature of each chapter provides the depth required for written and oral standardized tests. Chapters incorporate authors from all specialties--Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, General Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Oculoplastic Surgery, and Dermatology--as well as encompass all aspects of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, from cosmetic to reconstructive to craniofacial.

Formatted like the bestselling "Pasha" (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery) pocket guide, this text provides a condensed amount of high-yield information with a multidisciplinary approach to bring a broader range of insight into complex clinical challenges. Combining key insights from senior and junior authors, each chapter provides a unique perspective on the relevant information needed by those getting themselves established within the field.

Key Features

  • Contributions by leaders in the field
  • Tabs for each section for quick access
  • Key terms and notes in bold and italics

From the Foreword

"This text is a concise clinical reference guide solely devoted to facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. No such portable guide has existed up till now. Dr. Desai has gathered an "all star" multidisciplinary group of authors who are true experts in their fields. Many are paired with co-authors who recently finished training to give a unique combined perspective on each topic. One could say that the chapters are written "by former trainees for present trainees". The result is an easily accessible reference guide organized to help the reader find vital information quickly and efficiently.

Doctors in the specialties of facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and dermatology will find this guide indispensable in preparing for surgery or patient care. Modeled after Dr. Raza Pasha's popular Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Clinical Reference Guide, this portable reference book fills a niche in the reference world left empty too long."

"Despite its compact format, this book effectively covers the full spectrum of facial plastic surgery. Section 1 addresses basic concepts in facial surgery from instrumentation and suture material to facial analysis and principles of photography. The next 9 clinical sections cover the breadth of facial plastic surgery from facial nerve dysfunction and rehabilitation to pediatric facial plastic surgery. Each chapter addresses a specific, focused component of the overarching section, highlighting important topics with bolded texts and well-organized tables. In addition, each chapter contains excellent original illustrations of pertinent anatomy and surgical concepts. While illustrations are sparse as a function of the book's concision, they are used thoughtfully and effectively throughout and complement the text well.

The combination of well-organized text, carefully constructed tables, and custom illustrations create an excellent review of the major topics within the specialty of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery from cosmetic rhinoplasty to major oncologic reconstruction. . . . Dr. Desai produced a well-organized, thorough review text that will be a great resource for physicians at all levels of training. He brought together a diverse group of leaders in their respective fields to create a review text that effectively covers the range of facial plastic surgery. This will be a trusted reference and is an excellent addition to the catalog of respected facial plastic and reconstructive surgery texts."
Gregory Kelts, MD, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery (May 2017)

"...the book is, in fact, easy-to-read and concise. The size of the book does fit nicely into a student's laboratory coat. One should celebrate the book for allowing a student to get a quick glimpse into a facial plastic surgery topic."
—​​​​​​​Gehaan F. D'Souza, MD and James E. Zins, MD, in the Annals of Plastic Surgery, Volume 79, Issue 2 (August 2017)​​​​​​​

"This follows a well established format from this publisher and many readers will be familiar with Pasha's 'Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery' pocket guide, previously reviewed here. This is another book designed for a large pocket and ease of reference. It is very relevant to our speciality and to our trainees.

A multi-author text, this comprehensively covers far more than just aesthetic, cosmetic facial surgery. At that however it is very wide ranging with chapter titles such as 'Asian Blepharoplasty', 'Anatomy and physiology of Aging' (which read with despair and familiarity) and 'Non Caucasian Rhinoplasty'. Indeed rhinoplasty takes up nearly 70 pages and even delves into our territory with 'The Functional Nasal Airway' and I have to say does it well. I now know my pattern of hair loss is a Norwood Class IV/V and, in 'Photography', that zoom reduces depth of focus (I always thought the opposite applied). There is excellent coverage of the facial nerve, of facial skeletal trauma, of neoplasms and congenital abnormalities.

Reconstructive techniques are a must for last minute examination revision and ideally suited to the book's format. The text throughout is in wells thought out bullet points, with headings that allow 'dipping in' rather than reading cover to cover. The content is far more relevant to the UK ENT trainee, than a first glance might suggest (it certainly surprised me). I would certainly recommend it for examination preparation and revision."
—​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Liam Flood, in the Journal of Laryngology and Otology (2016)​​​​​​​

"This book is an excellent pocket guide encompassing a wide range of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. It is formatted in a very similar way to the well-known Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery by Pasha. The book is organised into major sections of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, encompassing reconstructive, cosmetic and craniofacial areas. Each chapter, which is co-written by a senior and junior author, provides concise and comprehensive information in an easy-to-read manner. The rhinoplasty, otoplasty, facial defect reconstruction and skin cancer sections are an excellent resource material in terms of succinct and concise information for trainees, particularly those preparing for the FRCS(ORL-HNS) exam and also the European Board Exam in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. This book is an excellent reference pocket guide for trainees and, indeed, established specialists. I have not come across a similar book for facial plastic surgery, which makes it stand out in the market. It is also an excellent revision resource for exams. In summary, this clinical reference guide is an excellent, up-to-date and good value book which I would highly recommend to anyone interested in facial and reconstructive surgery."
