Extract

This atlas is written by Henry Spinelli, associate clinical professor of plastic surgery at Weill Medical College, Cornell University (New York, NY). There is a chapter on laser resurfacing written by Amy B. Lewis, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at State University of New York Downstate (Brooklyn, NY), and a chapter on complications of blepharoplasty by Ebby Elahi, assistant professor of ophthalmology at Mount Sinai Medical Center (New York).

The book has 13 chapters with sections that describe “pearls” and “pitfalls.” The chapter on anatomy is excellent and comprehensive. It includes drawings as well as photographs, and although an ophthalmologist would be familiar with the ocular anatomy, it should be required reading for all surgeons who perform eyelid and periocular surgery. Chapter 2, which discusses patient evaluation, reviews a good eye examination from a nonophthalmologist point of view. Although Dr Spinelli mentions chronic blepharitis, Graves disease, herpes zoster infection, and refractive surgery in relation to surgical complications, his pearls state that there are “almost no contraindications to surgery in the periocular region.” This oversimplification might lead some patients into greater complications.
