Reoperative Aesthetic & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery has long been regarded as the gold standard for secondary surgery, the best place to find full coverage of the entire spectrum of reoperative scenarios encountered by plastic surgeons. A valued resource for surgeons seeking solutions to common surgical problems, it is filled with clinical insights for both experienced practitioners and residents studying for the boards.
Presented by the world’s foremost plastic surgeons, the book covers the range of scenarios requiring reoperation: staged procedures, revision of unsatisfactory results, refinements and finesse procedures, recurrence of disease, changes associated with aging, and complications.
Readers will appreciate its logical, thorough instructions for dozens of procedures addressing the head and neck, breast and chest wall, trunk, and extremities. The semi-atlas format features steps described and illustrated along with special tips, cautions, and clinical caveats needed for unusual situations or to manage possible complications.
The book includes detailed discussions of the common reasons for reoperation, crucial anatomic considerations, patient evaluation, and timing of reoperation. One chapter delves into the special psychological challenges presented by the reoperative patient with strategies for management. Another on reoperative rhytidectomy covers new developments in face-lift surgery with attention given to facial shaping, scar concealment, hairline restoration, and midface rejuvenation. Two DVDs with operative videos supplement the text.

Praise for the First Edition
"This book is much more than its title suggests. In order to foster a discussion of the philosophy, planning, and technique of reoperation, each author has reviewed the anatomy and blood and nerve supply of a specific body part and outlined the principles of the initial operation leading to the requirement for reoperation. This background and the clarity with which it is presented make this one of the most readable textbooks on plastic and reconstructive surgery. The illustrations are outstanding. Very clear drawings combined with color prints allow the reader to visualize what the text attempts to convey."
―The New England Journal of Medicine
"This book is a must for any well-intentioned and introspective surgeon who desires to improve his or her operative results. ...I for one am thankful for having been afforded the opportunity to review this book, since I have already employed many of the authors’ ideas in my clinical practice and teaching. I recommend this book as part of the surgical library of all practicing plastic surgeons."
―Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
"If my teacher in plastic surgery had still been alive, I am sure he would have presented me with these two highly recommended volumes, saying, ‘Read them carefully, there are many excellent lessons for your humility!’."
―European Journal of Plastic Surgery
"It is perfectly possible and enjoyable to open the book at almost any page and find something of interest."
―Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England
"This is an important text for every cosmetic surgeon, because every surgeon must know how to treat any problems that arise following cosmetic surgical procedures."
―The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery
"I just returned from Houston, TX, after successfully passing my plastic surgery boards. I’m sure you can appreciate the elation. Anyway, the purpose of my letter is to tell you how much your reoperative surgery text helped. I was at the Santa Fe course and it was there I purchased the books. I found them to be almost the single most important preparation in terms of reading in those last two weeks. It is well written, very well illustrated, and full of great ways to attack common problems. I just wanted to let you know that it will occupy a prominent position in my professional library and I heartily recommend it to my colleagues."
