As the Editor-in-Chief of Jurnal Plastik Rekonstruksi, it is with immense pride that I introduce our latest accomplishment – Volume 10 Issue 2, September 2023. This edition not only represents the culmination of rigorous scholarly work but also signifies a landmark in the ever-evolving field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Each article within this issue has been meticulously selected to showcase the breadth and depth of advancements in this dynamic field.

In our Reconstructive section, the spotlight is on the innovative use of the forehead flap for facial defects reconstruction. The article titled "Forehead Flap for Facial Defects Reconstruction: Case Series and Review of the Literature" delves into a series of case studies, backed by an extensive literature review. This piece, authored by a team of experts, stands as a testament to the evolving techniques in facial reconstruction, providing insights into the intricate balance between functional and aesthetic restoration.

The field of Microsurgery is represented by two remarkable articles. "Free Flap Evaluation Following Reconstruction of Locally Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Tongue" offers an in-depth analysis of post-reconstruction evaluations. This study not only highlights the complexity of managing advanced carcinomas but also underscores the critical role of microsurgical techniques in achieving successful outcomes. Additionally, "Early Dangling Protocol Post Lower Extremity Free Flap Surgery: An Evidence-Based Case Report" presents a pioneering approach to postoperative care. This evidence-based study suggests novel strategies to enhance recovery, potentially setting new standards in post-surgical protocols.

Our Craniofacial section features the insightful "Facial Soft Tissues Reconstruction Methods after Tumor Resection in Soedarso General Hospital 2017 – 2022". This article offers a comprehensive review of various reconstructive methods, drawing from five years of clinical experiences. It serves as a valuable resource, highlighting the challenges and triumphs in craniofacial reconstruction following tumor resections, providing a roadmap for future advancements in this specialized area.

In the Burns section, the focus shifts to pediatric care with the article "Cyanoacrylate Glue Burn Injury in 2 Years Old Child". This case study is particularly poignant, illustrating the unique challenges in treating pediatric burn patients. It emphasizes the need for specialized approaches in burn care, especially in young children, and contributes significantly to our understanding of pediatric burn management.

As we present this edition, we stand on the cusp of new discoveries and innovations. The contributions within these pages reflect a commitment to excellence and a passion for advancing the frontiers of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Each article embodies the meticulous research, clinical expertise, and innovative thinking that is characteristic of our journal.
