Description

My aim in writing this book is to present the truth regarding the methods of aesthetic plastic surgery of the head and body - the truth as I have come to perceive it in the course of more than 20 years' experience in the field. After this long period of quiet sedimentation and elaboration, of gradual accumulation of thoughts and ideas, I feel the urge to share with my colleagues, especially the younger surgeons amongst them, the fruits of my experience. Although the procedures used in aesthetic plastic surgery when I en- tered the specialty two decades ago have since evolved, the basic prin- ciples have remained the same. Time has given me the opportunity to improve my own techniques as well as to benefit from the work of many others who have also contributed to the progress of the spe- cialty. This long process of maturation endangers the contemporari- ness of a work such as this, but I have taken great pains to create a detailed, up-to-date presentation, enhanced by step-by-step illustra- tions, of the surgical procedures that, in my hands, have been of value. With regard to the accomplishment which this work represents, I would first like to acknowledge the help of my former teachers, Dr.
