Facial Aesthetics: Concepts and Clinical Diagnosis

by Farhad B. Naini
  • Hardcover

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
