About this book

Insisting on an evidence-based approach, Dr. Swanson brings the light of science to bear on the many controversies in cosmetic breast surgery today. Conventional wisdom is challenged with factual analysis, made possible by Dr. Swanson’s large body of published research. In his hallmark detailed style, the author lays the foundation with clinical studies, measurements, and patient-reported outcomes. The work is all here in one place for the first time, leading to some surprising conclusions. For plastic surgeons who prefer data to dogma, Evidence-Based Cosmetic Breast Surgery provides a unique and invaluable resource.

About the authors

Dr. Eric Swanson is an outspoken advocate for the application of the scientific method to cosmetic surgery, an approach known as evidence-based medicine. Dr. Swanson is a frequent presenter, invited faculty member, and course instructor at the meetings of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.  In 2002, Dr. Swanson embarked on a multi-part clinical investigation of cosmetic surgery, using the tools of science to study cosmetic surgery –  patient outcome studies, prospective clinical studies, laboratory tests, and measurements using computer-assisted imaging and MRIs. In 2012, Dr. Swanson published a new system for measuring the results of cosmetic breast surgery. His landmark photometric studies reveal the limitations of breast “autoaugmentation” and traditional surgical methods. Dr. Swanson’s clinical work, measurements, and outcome studies have culminated in over 100 publications in the top peer-reviewed plastic surgery journals. In 2015, Dr. Swanson received the award for “Best North American Paper” from the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery–Global Open.
Dr. Swanson is certified in plastic surgery by the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a member of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada. He has practiced in Kansas City since 1989 and specializes exclusively in cosmetic surgery. He is also a member of the hospital staff of Shawnee Mission Medical Center.
