Shahrokh C. Bagheri, Husain Ali Khan, Mark R. Stevens (Editors)
This book offers up-to-date guidance in the diagnosis and management of the various complex complications that may be encountered during or after the placement of dental implants. The aim is to raise the awareness of clinicians regarding such complications and to equip them with the knowledge needed in order to deal with complications promptly and effectively. This in turn will assist in the avoidance of “complications of the initial complication”, which is of critical importance in preventing more serious clinical and psychological problems for patients as well as medicolegal issues for clinicians. The range of complications covered in the book is very wide, encompassing medical, intraoperative, aesthetic, and infectious complications as well as medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw, complications in the atrophic mandible, trigeminal nerve injuries, and more. Complex Dental Implant Complications is written by a team of leading experts and surgeons in the field. It will be a valuable aid for all clinicians who place dental implants.
Integrated Procedures in Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Keyhan, S.O., Fattahi, T., Bagheri, S., Bohluli, B., Amirzade-Iranaq, M.H. (Editors)
Physical attractiveness, in particular the aesthetics of the face, has a significant impact on the social life and daily interaction of individuals as well as one’s general perception of life. Proper surgical planning for aesthetic facial surgery requires a meticulous analysis of the patient’s current and desired facial features from the perspective of both soft and hard tissues. Significantly greater changes to facial aesthetics can be made via the alteration of the main bony structures of the face than by alteration of soft tissue and skin alone. Various surgical and clinical techniques are available for the augmentation, reduction or refinement of the most prominent aspects of facial aesthetics, such as alterations to the cheek, chin, nose, para-nasal area, as well as the angle of the jaw. These techniques can be categorized as office-based or non-invasive techniques (filler injections, facial liposculpture or liposuction to modify the soft tissue of the face) and invasive surgical interventions such as facial prosthesis and maxillofacial osteotomies. In order to achieve the optimum aesthetic results for patients who undergo bi-maxillary or mono-maxillary orthognathic surgery, it is of paramount importance to utilize a hard and soft-tissue integrated approach. These integrated approaches have utilized the latest techniques in 3-dimentional printing, computer-assisted surgery, tissue engineering and stem-cell therapy in order to achieve positive and lasting outcomes.
Integrated Procedures in Facial Cosmetic Surgery includes chapters that focus on facial analysis and clinical evaluation and best practices in surgical techniques such as: principles of bone contouring; genioplasty; mentoplasty; malarplasty; rhinoplasty; orthognatic surgery and intra-oral plastic surgery; lifting procedures like blepharoplasty; surgical approaches to cleft lip and palate surgery; as well as the principles of facial photography.
Written by a team of renowned international experts, this textbook features over 1000 original photographs, fully illustrating each procedure in a stepwise manner. Integrated Procedures in Facial Cosmetic Surgery is an essential companion for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists, as well as for cosmetic surgeons and clinical residents dealing with face rejuvenation and also, dentists, prosthodontists, periodontists, radiologists, general surgeons, dermatologists.

Many of these changes are designed to provide more predictable, lasting and enhanced cosmetic results without compromise of function. This first of its kind multi-specialty book written in a case based format is an elegant and effective way to demonstrate and teach cosmetic surgery.

Fat Grafting for Aesthetic Facial Surgery
Over the last few years, fat grafting has evolved significantly and is becoming a growing trend. Historic concepts of fat cells of simply being temporary fillers are changing as it is being discovered that fat cells are able to maintain their vitality throughout the surgical procedure and survive at the recipient site.
This paradigm shift has affected many aspects of fat graft procedures. Even the terminology ‘fat injection’, which implies a spiritless and empty technique, is now being referred as a ‘fat transfer’ or ‘fat graft’ which emphasizes the viability of these cells.
It is not surprising that with these advances, current indications for fat grafting (e.g. facial augmentation and facial rejuvenations) are producing more predictable and have higher quality results. Additionally, these techniques are newly being used adjunctively in face lifts, blepharoplasty, revision rhinoplasty and orthognathic surgery and are substituting some of these current aesthetic procedures as they may be less complex.
This issue of atlas of oral and maxillofacial surgery Clinics of North America specifically covers an update on all above-mentioned areas of fat grafting, a multidisciplinary team of authors and experts that are mostly among the world-known aesthetic surgeons may be a paramount feature of this issue. We hope, this new exceptional situation will help to reveal different concepts and overlooked sides to fat grafting and readers find most of their questions and needs in these twelve comprehensive articles.
