We are living through an exciting era in facial plastic surgery. Innovations and scientific advancements abound in all directions of the globe. We can celebrate the advent of science without borders. Facial plastic surgery is simultaneously a very focused specialty, centered on reconstructive and aesthetic surgery of the face, and one of the more expansive and connected. Our specialty interfaces with dermatology, ophthalmology, oral maxillofacial surgery, surgery, and more; in addition, it is integral to both otolaryngology–head and neck surgery and plastic surgery. The primary basic science of facial plastic surgery is wound healing encompassing areas from flap physiology to peripheral nerve regeneration; our research, however, embraces technologies from disciplines as diverse as lasers, biomaterials, computer simulation, biomechanics, outcomes research, and many more.
