Plastic surgery continues to be a rapidly growing field in medicine. There have been 
multiple recent advancements in the field. Specifically, there has been a continuously 
growing interest in fat grafting, body contouring, minimally invasive surgery, and 
plastic surgery education. At the same time, there have been continued advances and 
modifications in surgical techniques, which translate into improved results for our 
patients while increasing safety and efficacy.
The title of the book is Current Concepts in Plastic Surgery, and, as such, it highlights 
some of the “hot topics” in recent years. Some of the topics continue discussion on 
controversial issues such as fat grafting for breast reconstruction and the combination 
of liposuction and abdominoplasty. Other topics offer reviews of and refinements in 
techniques of head and neck, breast, aesthetic, and microsurgical procedures.
We have invited renowned specialists from around the world to share their valued 
expertise and experience. Most of the chapters will expose the reader to multiple 
techniques for achieving desired results, with emphasis on the author’s preferred 
methodology. This book is a brief snapshot of plastic surgery today, and does not 
attempt to cover its entirety, as we acknowledge the immense depth of the field and its 
ongoing improvement.
