The specialty of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery is an innovative and constantly evolving profession. With the development of new technologies, minimally invasive procedures, and refinement of classic techniques, the modern surgeon is able to approach the challenge of the aging neck in unprecedented fashion. The newly published text, Neck Rejuvenation, offers a detailed and visually rich description of surgical and nonsurgical treatments involving the neck. Each topic is presented in a direct format beginning with patient consultation, focused evaluation, and operative planning. Considerable detail is given to highlight anatomic findings in addition to surgical considerations. With 348 high-quality images, the author provides a comprehensive review of new and innovative procedures, classic treatments, and surgical complications involving the aging neck. From superior-based platysmaplasty to self-retaining sutures, a number of interesting approaches are presented—some for the first time in print. The exclusive assembly of the various authorities in the fields of facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology compliments the diversity of approaches in neck rejuvenation. The text is a thoughtful compilation of requisite information for the beginning and intermediate surgeon. Unfortunately, the text is not accompanied by a DVD, video, or other educational aids.
