Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 03, 2015
Dr. Edward D. Buckingham of the Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery served as the guest editor for the most recent issue of Facial Plastic Surgery. Produced six times a year by Thieme, Facial Plastic Surgery is an index, peer-reviewed journal. It is also the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery’s official journal.
The highlight of Dr. Buckingham’s issue of Facial Plastic Surgery is an article he authored entitled “Fat Transfer Techniques: General Concepts.” In this article, Dr. Buckingham examines his treatment of facial volume loss by using fat grafting. He discusses the fat grafting process including preparation, harvesting, processing and injection techniques. The article is the culmination of over nine years of successful procedures for Dr. Buckingham.
In addition to the “Fat Transfer Techniques: General Concepts” article, Dr. Buckingham contributed to three additional articles that appeared in the journal. The articles were entitled “Volume Rejuvenation of the Facial Upper Third”, "Volume Rejuvenation of the Lower Third, Perioral, and Jawline,” and “Volume Management of the Middle Third-Lower Orbit/Midface”. These articles focused on such subjects as facial rejuvenation, volume restoration and refined surgical techniques.
Not only did Dr. Buckingham contribute to four articles in the issue, but he also worked closely with the publication’s illustrator in designing the cover. The art designed for the cover was inspired by Salvador Dali’s abstract piece called “The Persistence of Memory.” The cover art was designed to reflect the theme of the issue.
“Facial Plastic Surgery Editor, Tony Sclafini, MD, asked me to be the guest editor of an edition on Volume Rejuvenation. Since that topic is near and dear to my heart, I of course accepted,” said Dr. Buckingham.
“We wanted to cover the breadth of options available for volume replacement and have some of the best experts in the world contribute. I believe we accomplished our goal.”
