Surgical Correction of Facial Deformities is not just another textbook of Maxillofacial Surgery. The first chapter “Evolution of Face and Beauty Through Time” sets the tone to this remarkable volume wherein has gone a life-time of single-minded devotion to the healing of all the internal scars that external deformities can cause. In the chapter on “Surgical Treatment” the author has poured out his vast experience on the correction of these complex deformities of the face giving it a very personal touch. In the second chapter, “Etiology of Facial Deformities” the author touches on the psychological aspects of deformities, an important feature of this sort of work he says, “It has been observed that good looking and attractive people are more successful, intelligent and skilled than unattractive people“. This on its face value seems absurd, but if you go to the next line the author says “An unattractive person is usually seen as less intelligent and socially awkward by his peers and associates. They gradually consider themselves as thus and become so”. This is exceptional insight into human psychology—shows how people become what they think they are.
