Dr. Massry's Textbooks
Dr. Massry's new textbook "Master Techniques in Blepharoplasty and Periorbital Rejuvenation" has just been released (October 2011). This is Dr. Massry's second text. The first entitled "Pearls and Pitfalls in Cosmetic Oculoplastic Surgery," was released in 2009 and has been a great success (see below). While the first book details how to achieve the best results to aesthetic forehead/eyebrow/eyelid and midface surgery, the second is less of a how to book, and more of a definitive textbook. It has hundreds of surgical photos, illustrations, and comprehensively covers all aspects of surgery of the eyelids and surrounding areas. The text is one of the definitive references in the field of cosmetic eyelid surgery. Dr. Massry edited the text and wrote a number of the chapters. The text includes contributions from leaders in the fields of plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery and dermatology. As such it is truly multidisciplinary. For this reason alone it is unique and provides perspective on the subject as no previous text has. It is an exquisitely illustrated and written and comprehensive in content. The initial response to the text has been highly positive with copies being purchased by surgeons across all the specialties described from all over the world.
