In the turmoil of everyday activity, when few surgeons have time or energy for bibliographic research, the wonderful history of human endeavor runs the risk of remaining buried in libraries. Several years ago, a small group of enthusiasts was gathered together by Mario Gonzalez-Ulloa to write the history of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. There was the feeling among them that experience and knowledge should be shared by all those who practice this art and this science, and that its creation and progress would be alive and present with a chronicle of this surgical specialty. Their chapters have been written. These chapters have appeared in Aes thetic Plastic Surgery, but they are now collected in book form, and the individual style of each author has been preserved. It is a thrilling story. It is a compact information. Let it be our stepping-stone project in which past, present, and future are fused into one.

This book is a collection of short accounts of the lives and works of surgeons who began to use techniques in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that were to form the basis of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery and give rise to the specialty of plastic surgery. Descriptions of the intricate and novel surgical operations undertaken by these pioneers are included, but the emphasis is above all on stories of widely varying and fascinating characters, from the strange or eccentric, such as Hippolyte Morestin, to the serious or ambitious and a few, such as the Dutchman Johannes Esser and the legendary Sir Howard Gillies, who were accomplished in other fields, including business, sport and art. It is related how the two World Wars played a key role in the development of new techniques and how the endeavors of the pioneers were sometimes rejected by obstructive or abusive colleagues, impacting on careers and reputations. Pioneers in Plastic Surgery will appeal to all with an interest in the history of the discipline and the figures who shaped its birth and growth.
