This volume is a complete "how-to" guide to an innovative facial restoration strategy that combines microsurgical reconstruction and cosmetic surgery to restore both function and aesthetic appearance to disfigured faces. Illustrated with over 400 lifelike color drawings and patient photographs, the book demonstrates the techniques of aesthetic facial restoration and shows how to repair defects in every part of the face. Dr. Rose gives detailed instructions on the design and use of prepatterned microvascular flaps to replace components of the face. Meticulous drawings with clear plastic overlays depict the anatomy of free flap transfers to complex facial defects. Close attention is given to the use of three-dimensional imaging and computer-generated models in surgical planning. Dr. Rose also describes ancillary procedures to restore the contours and texture of the face. Chapters by a professional makeup artist and a medical tattoo specialist explain how cosmetic camouflage techniques are used on the reconstructed face.
