"Dr. Menick’s new book will be the unimpeachable standard reference work ...
Surgeons who close facial defects from any cause will find this new reference work invaluable."
(from his review in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery)
WHY THIS BOOK IS INDISPENSIBLE TO ANY SURGEON WHO CLOSES FACIAL DEFECTS
All defects have one thing in common: They vary.
Unfortunately, training and experience – no matter how good – do not gift us with adequate solutions to every conceivable defect or problem that may arise.
But there is something that is 100% reliable: The Normal.
The Normal never changes.
It is the perpetual goal of aesthetic reconstruction – and its guiding star.
In the quest to achieve beautiful results, the path to restoring The Normal is often obscure and difficult to navigate.
THE ANSWER = PRINCIPLES
Principles – applicable to any and all defects – are pivotal to plotting your course.
Without them, the risk of getting lost and overwhelmed is high.
With them, you are always in the driver's seat, confidently steering in the direction of your desired destination.
“The real value lies in their truths — from which answers can be derived, by logic, for any variety of problems — rather than depending on memorized blueprints, which may not be accurately recalled or, if so, may not be applicable.”
– Ralph Millard, M.D.
