Textbook of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery is a comprehensive and illustrated work for students, teachers, and practicing surgeons. It is a six-volume set with the topics of the volumes based on the clinical needs of plastic surgeons in developing countries. Along with latest developments, these volumes incorporate landmark contributions, innovations, and techniques used by Indian clinicians who regularly deal with unique and complicated conditions. While a majority of authors have been chosen from the Indian subcontinent, a few international authors whose work is considered indispensable for understanding the subject have also been included.

The six volumes seek to incorporate in one work issues relevant to the developing world as well as insights from national and international plastic surgery practices which highlight newer management techniques along with traditional methods. This makes these volumes a “must-have” resource for students and practitioners of plastic surgery across the globe.

The first section covers the surgical techniques related to the reconstruction of breast, chest abdomen, back, breast anomalies, male and female genitalia, and management of genital deformities, gender dysphoria, and pressure ulcers. The second section covers topics like congenital anomalies, soft tissue and skeletal injury, vascular anomalies, tumors, and rehabilitation of lower limb.

The third section covers all the facets of maxillofacial trauma including approach to cases of maxillofacial soft tissue and skeletal injury. The carefully selected team of authors for this volume are highly experienced in their respective fields. Each topic in this volume is a must read for trainees and practicing plastic surgeons across the globe.

What is the EPUB format?
