Summary: The principles of bone biology and physiology permeate all subspecialty practices in plastic and reconstructive surgery, from hand surgery to aesthetic surgery. Despite its importance in our practices, these topics rarely surface within textbooks, literature reviews, or residency curricula. The authors present the second portion of a two-part review of the important concepts of bone biology and bone physiology relevant to plastic surgery, in an effort to ameliorate this educational gap.
