About The Book

Facial Paralysis: A Comprehensive Rehabilitative Approach provides a thorough review of facial plastic surgery techniques utilized in various subspecialties. Through contributions from a range of experts – facial plastic surgeons to head and neck oncologic reconstructive surgeons – this text addresses ways to evaluate all aspects of facial nerve paralysis: diagnosis, individual etiology and management, surgical procedures, as well as preferred reconstructive modalities. Also included is a surgical atlas that illustrates the techniques used to repair or ameliorate the effects of the paralysis.

Spanning several surgical subspecialties, Facial Paralysis: A Comprehensive Rehabilitative Approach is a one-stop resource for any surgeon performing facial plastic surgery.
