English Summary/英文概要: Think how much of your identity and sense of self is vested in the face you see in the bathroom mirror every morning. Now imagine that face being so ravaged by cancer, an accident, a fall, a beating, a car crash or a gunshot wound that it is barely recognizable.

Now imagine how it might feel if, after surgery, the person you remember, but had given up all hope of seeing again, is looking back at you from the mirror once more.

Over the years, maxillofacial surgeon Jim McCaul has helped countless individuals make this journey. This extraordinary book follows the stories of some of these patients whom he has saved from terrible illness and life-changing injuries – and some he wasn’t able to. We follow the epic and complex surgical procedures his job requires him to perform daily, where the margin for error is to all intents and purposes zero.

Face to Face takes us on a journey which includes the most high-tech and complex of microsurgical procedures as well as the facial reconstruction techniques pioneered during the First World War. But at its heart are the human stories of the patients for whom this treatment is often quite literally a matter of life and death.


Chinese Summary/中文概要: 想想每天早上你在浴室镜子里看到的脸对你的身份和自我意识有多大的影响。现在想象一下那张脸被癌症、事故、摔倒、殴打、车祸或枪击伤得几乎无法辨认。 现在想象一下,在手术后,当初已经放弃再次见到的面容透过镜子看着你的时候会是什么感觉。 多年来,颌面外科医师Jim McCaul帮助无数人走过了这一旅程。这本非同寻常的书讲述了被他从可怕的疾病或改变人生的伤害中拯救出来的病人的故事,还有一些他没能成功救助的病人的故事。我们将通过本书了解他每天必须要进行的史诗般复杂的外科手术,而这样的手术必须万无一失。 本书带我们踏上了一段旅程,其中包括最先进的科技和复杂的显微外科手术程序,以及第一次世界大战期间开创的面部重建技术。但其核心是患者的真人真事。对于这些患者来说,这种治疗常常关乎生死。(LYR)
