The descriptions of procedures are completely up to date, encompassing newly introduced techniques and recent modifications of established techniques. Individual parts of the book are devoted to breast augmentation, mastopexy, and breast reduction. Detailed consideration is also given to risks and complications, with guidance on their avoidance and the treatment of complications. In addition, anatomy, anesthesia, and a range of miscellaneous procedures applicable in specific circumstances are all well covered. The authors are acknowledged experts in their fields who draw on a wealth of experience in describing and illustrating their personally favored techniques. Aesthetic Surgery of the Breast will be an ideal reference for both students (residents and fellows) and practicing cosmetic, plastic, and general surgeons.

Reviews

“The purpose is to broaden the overall understanding of breast surgery and highlight specific techniques that are tried and true. … There is something in this book for all who are concerned with or interested in breast surgery. … Both novice and senior breast surgeons will find something of use here. … this book will serve those who are interested in breast surgery. It is an excellent complement to the plethora of breast surgery atlases and books already available.” (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
