Ophthalmic plastic surgery continues to evolve more towards the aesthetic concerns of our patients. In their lectures the internationally well-known oculoplastic surgeons George B. Bartley, Brian S. Biesman, Michael A. Callahan, James C. Fleming, Robert A. Goldberg, Barrett G. Haik, Alan A. McNab and Russell W. Neuhaus gave an update on aesthetic approaches to traditional functional problems (such as nonincisional dacryocystorhinostomies and the deep lateral wall decompression for Graves orbitopathy), as well as the latest information regarding numerous cosmetic procedures, including laser resurfacing, endoscopic brow lifts and laser-assisted blepharoplasty. The round table discussions were particularly informative and enlightening and have therefore been included in this book.
