The desire to teach and the fulfillment attained from teaching have again prompted us to produce a work that we hope is both useful and enlightening to our readers. The field of oculoplastic surgery has grown and evolved to include all aspects of eyelid and facial plastic surgery. Our literature must now reflect the advancements and - rection of our field. Knowledge of anatomy, the basis of all surgery and the root of surgical principles and techniques, supports our ab- ity to deliver the highest quality care to our patients. We have therefore combined text and diagrams and supplemented them with DVD digital video technology to enable those who wish to perform this surgery the best possible instruction and preparation. We hope that our attempts to accomplish this will be rewarded by the use of this material by colleagues and the acknowledgment of our unique and logical progression in the field of eyelid and facial pl- tic surgery. The previous volume in this series covered reconstructive eyelid surgery. This volume presents many aspects of facial cosmetic surgery, including blepharoplasty, endoscopic forehead surgery, rhytidectomy, and other related procedures. Future volumes will pr- ent facets of lacrimal and orbital surgery. Frank A. Nesi, MD vii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Bringing a book project to fruition is always a complicated process involving many people. It is through their dedication, profession- ism, and team effort that it all comes together.
