More than 60 multi-specialty experts wrote the chapters in this unique textbook on wound healing of that most sensitive and visible area of the body - the face and neck. Essential Tissue Healing of the Face and Neck centres on healing skin, bone, cartilage, nerves, muscle, and mucosa inside the mouth - all areas where high vascularity accelerates post-surgery healing. Detailed, step-by-step surgical techniques demonstrate the best methods of tissue repair, integrating scientific principles with state-of-the-art clinical precepts. The book benefits from the diverse backgrounds and expertise of each of its authors, bringing the reader new insights into the question of why some facial and neck wounds heal satisfactorily and others do not. The authors and editors created the textbook to present a holistic approach to surgery of the face and neck that integrates all aspects of the healing process. Future directions for wound healing of the face and neck are also presented. The book is organized into three sections: the first section describes the healing of the structures of the face and neck; the second section addresses common clinical tissue-healing problems encountered and presents methods for treating them; and the third section discusses specific therapies used to optimise healing. This beautifully illustrated text is an excellent state-of-the-art, comprehensive clinical tool for plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, facial plastic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
