Original Articles

I look back at my decades in the field of plastic and reconstructive and craniofacial surgery, knowing I was the driving force behind its inception in Japan. However, behind me in turn, supporting me, teaching me, and encouraging me during my formative plastic surgery years in the United States and Europe have been many of the true giants in this field, and I will always accord them my total respect and deepest gratitude. Without their knowledge and technique, which they selflessly taught me and my peers, I would certainly never have been able to accomplish so much in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery, and in particular, craniofacial surgery.
