This is not a scientific contribution to plastic surgery. It is a chatty discussion of plastic surgery of the head and face. It is written in a light vein and is intended more for the edification of the lay public than for the guidance of surgeons interested in correcting facial deformities. Scattered through the volume are many suggestions which should be appreciated by the lay public, especially those regarding the pitfalls laid for persons who are inclined to seek aid from quack "beauty doctors" for real or imaginary difficulties. The physician engaged in general practice will find in it the answer to many questions regarding facial deformities which may be put to him by patients.
