ABOUT THIS BOOK
• Detailed descriptions of new and modified procedures used in cosmetic
• Clear explanations of potential risks and complications
• Written by international experts with extensive experience in the techniques described
• Wealth of high-quality illustrations
In this book, international experts present up-to-date techniques of otoplasty
in which they have extensive personal experience. Both new and modified procedures
are described with the aid of a wealth of high-quality illustrations. In addition
to these detailed descriptions, ear embryology and anatomy, psychological issues,
postoperative care, possible risks and complications, and outcomes are extensively
covered in order to provide the reader with a state of the art account of all
aspects of cosmetic otoplasty. Throughout, the contributors are inventive and
eloquent in guiding the reader to a better understanding that optimal results
of otoplasty will be achieved only with a more refined approach than the routine
use of simplified techniques. This book will be of value to both students (residents
and fellows) and experienced cosmetic, plastic, maxillofacial, and general surgeons.
