It is with great pleasure that I introduce this issue of Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America , dedicated to the esthetic treatment of the midface and periorbital regions. The authors in this issue are world-renowned leaders in the field and present their topics on a strong foundation of anatomy and physiology of these areas. From minimally invasive techniques to soft tissue treatments and skeletal modifications, these authors present a comprehensive view of cosmetic surgery of the midface and orbital areas. The more recent concepts of midfacial volume augmentation with autologous fat and injectable fillers, as well as esthetic contouring of the face with neurotoxins, are discussed. Finally, management, and more importantly, avoidance of complications are presented.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue of Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America as much as I did, it strengthens your understanding of the anatomy, physiology, and chronopathology of the midface and periorbita, and allows you to more confidently perform minimally invasive and surgical management of these areas.
