Many deserve thanks for this edition, including each author and Thieme for its support. I personally thank Dan Becker for the opportunity to orchestrate this edition and Ted Cook and Tom Wang for their invaluable contribution to my career. Dr. Jeffrey Wise, my co-guest editor, has been equally helpful finalizing each article and clearly has a grasp on our field at an early stage in his career. I have been touched by many others along the way, and thanks would consume many of the next pages-you know who you are. Finally, to my wife, Melissa, thank you for understanding the late nights spent putting this text together.
This edition of Facial Plastic Surgery would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of Dr. Adam Ross. His clinical acumen, knowledge of the literature, and strong organization skills were invaluable. Special thanks to my current mentors and lifelong colleagues, Drs. Dan Becker, Timothy Greco, Stephen Goldstein, and Ara Chalian. With great excitement I look forward to working with Drs. Minas Constantinides, Phil Miller, and Norman Pastorek. And, of course, to my wonderful wife, Ali, whose continued love and support mean the world to me.
