Reconstructive Plastic Surgery is a multiple authored reference, written in seven parts, and printed in five volumes on 2,253 pages. Part I (vol 1), Principles and Procedures in Correction, Reconstruction and Transplantation is a masterful collection of academic and applied knowledge, representing the sum of an unbelievable amount of experience, research, and teaching in this area. The author in his preface sagely points out that a philosophy of plastic surgery cannot be taught in a textbook and has developed in this volume a solid foundation of sound principles on which a stable philosophy may be constructed.
