With personal insights, wit, and wisdom pervading the pages, this landmark work provides the reader with a master class in neck lifting by one of the recognized pioneers in face and neck-lift surgery. Dr. Feldman’s corset platysmaplasty has revolutionized the way surgeons approach the neck. His ongoing innovations continue to advance the field.
In this comprehensive, semi-atlas work, Dr. Feldman shares his approach for rejuvenating the aging neck and correcting ancillary problems such as jowling, bulging submandibular glands, and other gravitational changes in the mid to lower face and neck. Beautiful and dramatic color illustrations and numerous preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative images help the reader visualize the steps of each procedure and appreciate the excellent long-term results that can be achieved. Special emphasis is given to tips and tricks that distinguish an excellent result from an ordinary one and to the critical maneuvers that are key to performing these procedures successfully. To complement this book, a DVD combining animation with intraoperative technique is included.
Divided into 12 comprehensive chapters, the book begins with two chapters on central concepts and surgical anatomy. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 focus on the evaluation, consultation, and planning that is prefatory to any successful procedure. Chapters 6 through 9 contain the meat of the book. These pages are liberally illustrated with step-by-step technique depicting neck flap dissection and subcutaneous dissection, corset platysmaplasty, subplatysmal surgery, and submandibular salivary gland bulge revisions. Ancillary procedures for correcting chin ptosis and earlobe shape are addressed in chapters 10 and 11. The final chapter focuses on reoperation to correct problems from a previous neck lift. To complement this book, a DVD combining animation with operative technique is included.
This remarkable book is a joy to behold and a pleasure to read. It is destined to become a valued part of your library.
