Publication History

Publication Date:
22 March 2002 (online)

This issue, Volume 16, Number 1, marks a new beginning-an evolutionary change in the title, frequency, and format of Perspectives and Outlook in Plastic Surgery. After over a year of discussion and consensus, the Editor-in-Chief, the Editorial Board, and the Publisher have made a decision to present review articles in the field of plastic surgery in what we believe to be a more efficient and easy-to-use format. Therefore, Perspectives and its companion newsletter, Outlook in Plastic Surgery, have been transformed into a softcover, quarterly review journal, titled Seminars in Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Sal Shenaq will remain the journal's Editor-in-Chief and his Associate Editor will continue to be Dr. Larry Hollier. There will also be a number of new additions to the Editorial Board. The new Seminars will be a topic driven and incisive educational tool for practicing plastic surgeons. Each issue will elucidate state-of-the-art plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery techniques and will be a dynamic forum for the exchange of experiences among practitioners. In addition, it will be an outlet for conferring on differing techniques and opposing viewpoints that will allow authors to share their accumulated knowledge and skills in their specialty. This first issue, Volume 16, Number 1, Guest Edited by Robert J. Allen, M.D. is on Advances in Breast Reconstruction. Dr. Shenaq has assembled the following subsequent issues for 2002

@txtf:Vol. 16, No. 2, 2002: Lipogenesis and Lipoplasty

Guest Editors: Saleh M. Shenaq, M.D., and Joseph P. Hunstad, M.D.

Vol. 16, No. 3, 2002: Facial Rejuvenation: State of the Art

Guest Editors: Timothy J. Marten, M.D., and Tue A. Dinh, M.D.

Vol. 16, No. 4, 2002: Craniomaxillofacial Injuries: Early and Late Reconstruction

Guest Editors: Paul N. Manson, M.D., Joseph S. Gruss, M.D., and Larry H. Hollier, Jr., M.D.

Finally, we here at Thieme are thrilled about the re-launching of Perspectives and Outlook in Plastic Surgery as a Seminars review journal, and we are certain that this new format will continue to be an invaluable resource for both your practice and teaching needs.
