This book contains chapters on the various aspects of cosmetic oculoplastic surgery by Dr Putterman and 17 other contributors. In addition to the detailed descriptions of various techniques, there are chapters that discuss numerous aspects of cosmetic oculoplastic surgery. The history, patient selection, patient evaluation, dermatopathology, psychiatry, cosmetology, and many other topics valuable in dealing with cosmetic surgery are discussed. Many books written by many authors have a notable variability in the quality of the text, illustrations, and readability from chapter to chapter. The fine editorial work by Maxine Gere and the superb illustrations in each chapter by Linda Warren have greatly contributed to a more uniform style throughout this book. Dr Putterman also adds cohesion to the book by a brief overview and evaluation of each chapter, at which time he notes his personal philosophy on a topic or procedure when he disagrees with the author of the chapter.
