Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery theme issue highlights work from AsiaJuly 19, 2010
Advances in facial plastic surgery that originated in Asia can benefit patients elsewhere in the world, according to an editorial in the July/August issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. This theme issue of the journal focuses on research from this part of the world.
"Facial plastic surgery in Asia is built on the same scientific foundations as the specialty in North America," write Joseph K. Wong, M.D., F.R.C.S.C., of Advanced Aesthetic Surgery Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and Wayne F. Larrabee Jr., M.D., of University of Washington, Seattle, and editor of the Archives, in the editorial. Surgeons in China and other part of Asia have studied in North America and Europe, and are forming their own collaborations and programs. "Patients around the globe should benefit from this shared knowledge. We are proud that the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery can contribute to this goal with our theme issue."
Articles in the issue focus on:
- Cultural norms and other concepts in aesthetic evaluation
- Revisions to double-eyelid procedures
