Pessa/Rohrich: Facial Topography: Clinical Anatomy of the Face





This Book is Required Reading For Anyone Using Injectables in the Face or Performing Any Type of Facial Surgery!

Facial Topography: Clinical Anatomy of the Face provides you with a critical roadmap for navigating the underlying anatomy of the face. It is the first work of its type that uses superb cadaver dissections paired with detailed medical illustrations to depict the soft tissue surface landmarks of the face - shapes, contours, creases, and lines - that can help you predict the course and location of deeper structures. The difference in the shapes of structures and their relationship to one another determines the unique and distinct appearance of each individual. This anatomic information is critical to diagnosing changes in facial topography that occur with age and in determining the best approach for augmenting and rejuvenating the aging face.

The beautifully illustrated, clinically relevant, semi-atlas work is particularly useful for all physicians performing facial procedures. It is packed with clinical information that will help you improve your outcomes. Emphasis is placed on describing surface landmarks to help predict the location of deeper structures. This knowledge increases the safety of any facial procedure, because the surgeon knows the course and location of blood vessels, muscles, and nerves.

This is an invaluable guide for determining the best placement of injectables to achieve a predictable and aesthetic result and to avoid complications. It will also help the surgeon understand the ideal placement of fillers for facial augmentation. In addition, the basic dissections provide essential information for all residents and practitioners operating in the face. Additionally, anatomic tenets are described that can be applied to any anatomic region and key clinical points are highlighted throughout.

Comprehensive Coverage
This book starts with the central forehead, a key area of facial expression. It then proceeds to the cheek, an area of current interest, followed by the eyelids, nose, temporal fossa, and preauricular region. It ends with a discussion of the lips and chin, two distinct anatomic regions, but ones that share a common denominator.

Digital Media
1 DVD with video demonstrates dissections and clinical applications in each anatomic area of the face.
