Aesthetic Surgery Techniques E-Book: A Case Based Approach
This new text book (publication date early 2018) will provide the readers of cosmetic surgery with a systematic approach to the management of patients with the most common presentations and requests for cosmetic surgery. Contrary to traditional textbooks of surgery, in this book we emphasize a case based approach to learning that is suitable for readers of cosmetic surgery at all levels of training or practice.
The last two decades have witnessed significant contributions to the field of cosmetics and have changed both technical and philosophical aspects of this surgery. 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.
