“The editors are all highly qualified and accomplished young plastic surgeons, and they have been able to provide a global perspective of our specialty. Many of the contributors are internationally leading experts; however, there is also a new generation of young rising stars whose contributions are equally good, providing a new, fresh and contemporary feel.”

Professor Julian J. Pribaz Plastic Surgeon Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA

“I think this is a great book. It is packed with good and up to date information, and I think it will be an invaluable resource for trainees but also for all plastic surgeons. The editors are to be congratulated on achieving a very difficult task with such success.”

Professor Peter Neligan, Plastic Surgeon, Chief Editor of Plastic Surgery, University of Washington, USA, Plastic Reconstructive Surgery Journal

“In general the authors have provided us with a marvellous book… The authors here have concentrated all this useful information into their chapters in a quite outstanding manner. Any plastic surgeon of whatever maturity will find this an excellent purchase which he/she will have no reason to regret.”

Mr Douglas H. Harrison Plastic Surgeon London, United Kingdom, Journal of Plastic Aesthetic, Reconstructive Surgery

“Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Approaches and Techniques is a wonderful resource for trainees and junior faculty who need a thorough but clear review of the wide spectrum of issues encountered in plastic surgery. The chapters provide a concise review of the relevant anatomy, pathophysiology, and available surgical options for each topic.”
