View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Provides an easy reference aid for those involved in the field of Plastic Surgery. Plastic surgery is a large and diverse field and therefore this book would serve as a framework or skeleton on which to base answers to questions relating to the individual components of the topic. It would be useful to students of the specialty in addition to those involved in teaching.

Provides definitions: a particularly helpful way to engage in answering a question.- Provides classifications: neatly distils a large topic into a manageable framework.- Provides references of recognised classifications: a question often asked of trainees on a variety of topics.- Provides simple diagrams: often asked to draw sketches by trainers and patients.- Succinct: removes excessive padding and provides a sound backbone of knowledge without the reader having to painfully extract information from an elaborate text.

Certain chapters of the book would appeal to a range of surgeons not only plastic surgeons but those involved in orthopaedics, hand surgery, urology, maxillofacial and craniofacial specialties. The incorporation of a medicolegal chapter significantly widens readership across the medical specialties and perhaps into the legal sphere. (The author has a degree in Medical Law in addition to Medicine).

Certain chapters would also be of interest to other professions allied to medicine e.g. plastic surgery specialist nurses, occupational therapists, speech therapists with an interest in cleft.
