From its beginning the Archives has been dedicated to publishing the best science from facial plastic surgeons around the globe. Our mission statement reads: “The Archives will strive to promote the education and contributions of physicians world-wide.” Manuscripts were submitted from 29 countries in 2010, and many were published in the Archives. The theme issue on Asian facial plastic surgery (July/August 2010) was exceptional in its quality, to a large degree because of the extensive clinical experience of its authors. For example, Mu1 reported 585 patients with reduction malarplasty, and Dong et al2 reported 1700 cases of augmentation rhinoplasty.
