On Plastic Operations for the Restoration of the Lower Lip.
Thomas Teale was a British surgeon in the mid-19th century. He came from a family of surgeons and was a founder of the Leeds School of Medicine. The loss of one eye during his youth did not deter him. In this rare publication, Teale describes restorations of the lower lip (cheiloplasty) and reconstructions of other deformities of the face and neck. There is discussion of eyelid reconstruction as well. The surgical descriptions are accompanied by very fine illustrations.
