Abstract: The concepts of craniofacial surgery and its place in our society are discussed, with a historical survey detailing the development of the techniques used. The range of conditions seen in the South Australian Craniofacial Unit and the results and complications of surgery are presented. Discussion includes the types of patients considered for craniofacial surgery, the optimal age for operation, the limitations of surgery, and the benefits of a team approach to the patient. Problems associated with the formation and operation of a regional craniofacial service in Australasia are presented.
