Facial Aesthetics: Concepts and Clinical Diagnosis is a unique new illustrated resource for facial aesthetic surgery and dentistry, providing the comprehensive clinical textbook on the art and science of facial aesthetics for clinicians involved in the management of facial deformities, including orthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons and aesthetic dentists. It aims to provide readers with a comprehensive examination of facial aesthetics in the context of dentofacial and craniofacial diagnosis and treatment planning. This aim is achieved through coupling meticulous research and practical clinical advice with beautifully drawn supporting illustrations and diagrams.Structured over 24 logically arranged and easy-to-follow chapters, Part I of Facial Aesthetics covers the historical evidence for facial aesthetic canons and concepts in depth. It incorporates all aspects relevant to the work of the clinician, including the philosophical and scientific theories of facial beauty, facial attractiveness research, facial expression and the psychosocial ramifications of facial deformities. Part II of the book then goes on to examine clinical evaluation and diagnosis in considerable detail under four sections, from the initial consultation interview and acquisition of diagnostic records (section 1), complete clinical examination and analysis of the craniofacial complex (section 2), in depth analysis of each individual facial region using a top-down approach (section 3) and finally focussing on smile and dentogingival aesthetic evaluation (section 4).An in-depth, thoughtful, practical and absorbing reference, Facial Aesthetics will find an enthusiastic reception among facial aesthetic surgeons and aesthetic dentists with an interest in refining their understanding and appreciation of the human face and applying practical protocols to their clinical diagnosis and treatment planning.

From a clinical point of view, this book will interest anyone who looks after patients with dentofacial deformity from maxillofacial and plastic surgeons, orthodontists, to general dentists and any other dental and medical specialists who desire an understanding of the importance of facial aesthetics in the treatment of ‘real people’ rather than ‘patients with a disease entity’.” (European Journal of Orthodontics, ۱ May 2013)
“I think this a remarkable effort from a single author: it is clearly a labor of love . . . Most residents in plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, or maxillofacial surgery should be exposed to this material in their training, and this is a good place to get that exposure in one place.” (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,۱ November ۲۰۱۲)
“Thoughtfully integrates historical, clinical, and surgical perspectives in the medical fields ranging from maxillofacial to plastic and reconstructive surgery. The author elegantly provides the science and art of facial aesthetics with emphasis given to analysis of the craniofacial complex, facial aesthetic units, and clinical evaluation, in addition to smile and dental-occlusal relationships…has undertaken a detailed approach in presenting dental aesthetics, which makes this publication rather unique…allows a broad appeal to both dental and medical specialists.” (Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, 1 September ۲۰۱۲)
“The best analysis I have ever seen of the comprehensive factors involved in establishing exactly what makes a person facially attractive, unattractive, or simply average. The book’s 24 logically arranged, easy-to-follow chapters—beautifully illustrated in full colour—systematically and thoroughly explore all the dentofacial and craniofacial details that determine how we look. I believe Facial Aesthetics will find an enthusiastic reception among orthodontists who would like to refine their understanding and appreciation of the human face and to apply the author’s practical protocols to their clinical diagnosis and treatment planning.” (Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, ۲۰۱۲)
