This atlas is meant for young plastic surgeons in training. However it can be useful to aid experienced colleagues when they have problem cases. This book can be of use to general surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, ENT and maxillofacial surgeons as well as plastic surgeons. This atlas differs from many other books as the author only describes the techniques that, in 40 years of practice, he has found most useful. It does not try to provide a comprehensive coverage of all methods and there are many techniques not described that are used by others, with success. The book is a very personal approach.
