Short-Scar Face Lift: Operative Strategies and Techniques (Volume II) represents the next stage in short-scar face-lift technique and a convergence of new modalities to enhance the results of facial rejuvenation. The highly popular first volume on the MACS-Lift Short-Scar Rhytidectomy, by Drs. Patrick Tonnard and Alexis Verpaele, introduced surgeons to an exciting new concept in facial rejuvenation–one that offered shorter incisions, minimal morbidity, and reduced recovery time. In this second volume Drs. Tonnard and Verpaele build on that foundation and expand their scope. They are joined by the leading experts who share their insights and technical pearls on short-scar face lifting. The contributors compare and contrast their approaches to demonstrate the advantages and benefits of their individual techniques. In addition, they discuss ancillary procedures to enhance the overall result. Best of all, comprehensive chapters on indications, applications and combined modalities help you to select the best menu of treatment options for your patients and to provide them with the results that they are expecting.
This semi-atlas has it all - step-by-step surgical instruction, tips and tricks, and technical pearls. With beautiful, 4-color illustrations and numerous case examples, this text provides the ultimate surgical instruction that will allow you to incorporate this procedure into your practice. An accompanying DVD provides operative video of key techniques discussed in the book.
