Cosmetic Surgery of the Asian Face

Arch Facial Plast Surg. 2006;8(3):223. doi:10.1001/archfaci.8.3.223-b

by John A. McCurdy, Jr, and Samuel M. Lam, 2nd ed, 283 pp, $169.95, ISBN 1-5889-0218-8, New York, NY, Thieme Medical Publishers, 2005.

Cosmetic Surgery of the Asian Face, Second Edition, by John A. McCurdy, Jr, MD, and Samuel M. Lam, MD, is the much anticipated update and expansion of the original monograph published by McCurdy in 1990. The new edition has 283 pages divided into 14 chapters as well as 2 DVDs containing over 3 hours of video tutorial. The first half of the book, written by McCurdy, is essentially an updated description of his personal philosophy and surgical techniques he has honed over 30 years in practice. Lam wrote the second half of the book, which is completely new and details alternative surgical and ancillary techniques not covered in McCurdy's section of the book.
