A beautifully illustrated, multimedia guide to facial soft-tissue reconstruction from leading clinicians
Principles of Facial Reconstruction: A Subunit Approach to Cutaneous Repair, Third Edition by distinguished clinicians Wayne Larrabee Jr., David Sherris, Jeffrey Teixeira, and esteemed contributors presents evidence-based facial reconstruction techniques that simplify flap design based on location and defect. The book's primary focus is soft-tissue defects of moderate size rather than larger flap reconstructions. Building on the acclaimed prior editions, the third edition features new content and images.
Key surgical principles are detailed graphically in an easy-to-navigate, concise layout. The two opening chapters cover a review of soft-tissue biomechanics and physiology, followed by fundamentals of wound closure, wound healing, grafts, and flaps. The seven consistently organized anatomic chapters present a brief overview of the anatomy of the region, followed by succinct descriptions of surgical approaches for relevant subunits in that region. The final two chapters provide details on free flaps and graft harvesting techniques. The reader-friendly format enables quick determination of the most reliable reconstruction options for repair of the scalp, forehead, eyes, nose, cheek, ears, and lips and chin.
Firsthand experience from renowned experts on the most reliable defect reconstructions
Full-color clinical photographs, 350 high-quality illustrations, and diagrams provide precise insights on key surgical concepts
Following a facial unit principle, decision-making algorithms guide readers on selection of the most effective flap or graft for each case
This is a must-have resource for plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, and oral-maxillofacial surgeons, and dermatology residents and fellows, as well as surgeons specializing in the fields of facial plastic surgery.

Returning in a second edition, this book is a beautifully illustrated guide to facial soft-tissue reconstruction, written by leading clinicians who share insights into the most effective techniques for managing a range of problems in this area of surgery. It opens with a review of soft-tissue biomechanics and physiology and then covers the fundamentals of wound closure, wound healing, grafts, flaps, and dermabrasion. The chapters that follow address defects in specific anatomic regions. Each chapter presents a brief overview of the anatomy of the region and then goes on to provide succinct descriptions of surgical approaches for the relevant subunits in that region. New in this edition is a final chapter that provides detailed discussion of the latest graft harvesting techniques.
Features of the second edition:
Algorithms that guide the clinician through treatment options and to the selection of the appropriate flap or graft for each situation
More than 300 high-quality illustrations, full-color clinical photographs, and diagrams precisely depicting key surgical concepts
Up-to-date coverage of the newest flaps in facial reconstructive surgery
This book is ideal for clinicians and residents in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and trauma management. It will also be a useful reference for dermatologists and ophthalmologists.
