Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation: A Practical and Systematic Guide to Surgical Management of the Aging Face by Edwin Williams and Samuel Lam discusses not only surgical procedures but also practice management issues to include business plans, staff leadership, marketing, aesthetic skin care, and more. These initial chapters succintly present key issues facing the young surgeon beginning practice, such as patient communication, preoperative imaging, and office staffing. The section on surgical procedures presents current techniques of facial rejuvenation in a clear, practical, and organized manner. Surgeons unfamiliar with any of the procedures will find essential information on preoperative evaluation, operative management, and postoperative care. In addition to upper and lower facial rejuvenation, the authors discuss rhinoplasty of the aging nose and hair restoration.
