Complications in cosmetic surgery – no surgeon wants to admit to them, all surgeons dread them, and all have experienced them. This issue is devoted solely to complications in facial plastic surgery – the most common and the most feared - and discussion on best approaches to avoid them. Each article focuses on a specific procedure. Each article discusses: Surgical Complications, Pharmacologic or Interaction Complications, Nonpharmacologic Complications, Complication Avoidance, Procedural Approach (with video), Complication Management Perioperative, Complications Management Postoperative. Written by facial plastic surgeon experts, this information is essential for facial plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons, and to cosmetic adjunct professionals who perform injections and resurfacing. This publication is directed by two expert practitioners and academicians who are at the apex of their field, Dr Richard Goode and Dr Sam Most. Their substantive teaching and training experiences position them to provide comprehensive understanding and skills in performing cosmetic surgery.
