PRS Online First

The editors of this Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are pleased to offer electronic publication of accepted papers prior to final publication. These papers can be cited using the date of access and the unique DOI number. Any final changes in manuscripts will be made at the time of final, in-issue publication. As these PRS Online First manuscripts represent raw, pre-production files, figures and tables have not yet been professionally produced or laid-out, text has not been copyedited, manuscripts have not been proofread by authors or staff, and papers will not include any of the mentioned Supplemental Digital Content, including videos. The PRS Online First versions of all Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery articles will remain the version of record until final publication. Once the article has been officially set for an issue, we will begin production work on the final version, which will replace the raw, accepted version upon publication.
