This volume contains truncated versions of the papers and posters which were presented at the twelfth biennial meeting of the International Society of Craniofacial Surgery, and organizations which was founded in 1983, and has as its Honorary President for the first two meetings, Dr. Paul Tessier of Paris, whose innovative contributions resulted in the formation of this distinct subspecialty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

I would like to dedicate this book to Dr. Tessier, who, at age 90, is still helping us all with his continuing thinking about Craniofacial Surgery.

I would also like to dedicate the book to my friend of more than 25 years, Dr. Cassio Raposo do Amoral, of Campinas, Brazil. Cassio had been elected President of ISCFS at the eleventh biennial meeting in Australia, and chose Bahia as the place to have the meeting. After his unexpected and untimely death, I moved into the Presidency, and was glad to maintain the meeting in Bahia. I would have been unable to do so without the continuing on-site help from Cassio’s widow, Dra. Vera Raposo do Amoral.

The quality of the papers presented, as will be immediately evident on perusal of this volume, made this a very successful meeting, and speaks well for the future of Craniofacial Surgery. Ours is a small specialty, but one which has made a huge difference in the lives of so many of our patients. Thank you, Dr. Tessier, for being the father of all craniofacial surgeons.
