Product information Short-Scar Face Lift

In the highly popular MACS-Lift Short-Scar Rhytidectomy, Drs. Patrick Tonnard and Alexis Verpaele introduced surgeons to an exciting new concept in facial rejuvenation-one that offered shorter incisions, minimal morbidity, and reduced recovery time. In this companion volume, Short-Scar Face Lift: Operative Strategies and Techniques, Drs. Tonnard and Verpaele build on that foundation and expand their scope.

The book is organized into two sections. Part I, Short-Scar Face-Lift Techniques, discusses indications, applications, and alternate short-scar face-lift techniques. The editors elaborate on the different aspects of the MACS-lift and short-scar face-lifting. They review the important lessons they have learned during years of experience with the MACS-lift, including a discussion of complications, problems, limitations, and technical tips and tricks. They are joined by Dr. Foad Nahai, who discusses technical considerations; Dr. Joseph Hunstad, who provides a systematic step-by-step guide to his approach; Dr. Mark Jewell, who describes the biomechanics of the MACS-lift and offers technical tips for success; and Dr. Daniel Baker, who describes his personal lateral SMASectomy short-scar face-lift technique and compares it to other comparable and convergent techniques.

Part II focuses on Combined Approaches and Ancillary Treatments for facial rejuvenation. In this section, Dr. Daniel Labb discusses the anatomic basis of minimally invasive neck correction through a short scar and Dr. Alain Fogli details his simple, safe technique for temporal lifting. Finally, Dr. Thomas Roberts brings all of these techniques and treatments into perspective through his analysis of the volumetric concept of facial rejuvenation. He provides an in-depth discussion of facial fat micrografting and describes how the synergistic use of multiple surgical and nonsurgical modalities can lead to superior results.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
