Extract

Throughout the ages, people have always yearned to be attractive. The development of modern facial plastic surgery began over 100 years ago and was greatly advanced during World War I owing to the need to reconstruct the injuries inflicted on many of the soldiers who survived during this period. Otolaryngology worldwide includes facial plastic surgery within its training programs, and in many countries it has also become an important subspecialty.

Facial plastic surgery is defined as the surgical specialty that focuses on treatment of all defects of the face and neck: congenital, traumatic, neoplasm related, or results of the aging process.1The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) was founded in 1964, and in 1968 the first official fellowship program began. These training programs were completely standardized in 1988. Certification for the specialty began in 1986 when the American Board of Facial Plastic and Recontructive Surgery (ABFPRS) was founded.2Today, more than 900 surgeons can say they have completed certification requirements in this growing specialty.
