This edition, appearing five years after the first, emphasizes pictures and illustrations rather than written explanations. The drawings are simple and clear. Only that part of the anatomy of the brow and lids that pertains to plastic surgery is included. One of the highlights of the book is the chapter on ptosis, in which the author does not outline innumerable procedures to confuse the reader but carefully depicts a few procedures of each type in detail with some modifications of his own. In other words, this is not an encyclopedia but an ophthalmic plastic surgery book based on surgical procedures performed by the author personally. Because of the tremendous increase in traumatic accidents involving the face and eyes, this book assumes increasing importance in ophthalmic practice. It behooves all ophthalmic surgeons to familiarize themselves with its contents.
