 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.
