Harold Gillies 'Plastic surgery of the face'


Modern day plastic Surgery has a relatively short but distinguished history. Sir Harold Delf Gillies, a New Zealander, is widely regarded as the father of plastic surgery. In 1920 he published Plastic Surgery of the Face a year after the publication of John Staige Davis’ Plastic Surgery its Principles and Practice.

Prof. M F Freshwater gave an insightful talk on the two books at the winter BAPRAS conference 2009. The Gillies book is available here and I'm still trying to find Davis' book. . .
