An atlas presenting relevant facial anatomy from a surgical point of view, i.e. presenting structures as seen at the operating table. The subjects covered are selective, reflecting the authors' judgments of relative importance. The illustrations, which depict individuals of both sexes and various ages and races (in pointed contrast to the norm), are not only aesthetically pleasing and accurate, but use color and design in innovative ways to show complex relationships. Clinical examples and cadaver dissections supplement the illustrations and demonstrate specific anatomic points. A selected list of references and readings, grouped by topic, appears at the end of the volume. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.

This unique full-color atlas presents a realistic surgeon's-eye view of the anatomic details relevant to all types of facial surgery. An extraordinary collection of 102 full-color drawings by Dr. Makielski--an innovative illustrator who is also a head and neck surgeon--shows the anatomic structures as they are seen at the operating table, emphasizing surgically important details and key relationships among structures. More than 100 full-color clinical photographs and photographs of cadaver dissections supplement the drawings and highlight specific anatomic points.Major sections of the book cover facial analysis; anatomic systems such as musculature, nerves, and vasculature; and anatomy of each specific region of the face. Each chapter begins with a discussion of key anatomic concepts and then presents the illustrations in a sequence that allows easy reference and presurgical review. The comprehensive coverage includes anatomic details relating to the full range of surgical techniques, as well as anatomic variations associated with race, age, and gender.Note: A set of 150 full-color slides of illustrations from this book is also available from Lippincott-Raven Publishers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
