An excellent reference for the experienced breast surgeon is now available in Plastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery, An Atlas. It assumes that the reader has a solid foundation in plastic surgery and is familiar with various operative methods. It describes the complete range of breast surgery: augmentation and reduction mammaplasty, anomalies, the treatment of primary breast cancer and breast reconstruction. The various flaps and grafts are described with emphasis placed on the presentation of specific details and complications. This is done with a series of illustrations and an accompanying text that is very easy to read. By looking up a similar case, the surgeon will find direct help for his own decision-making. Many less common types of cases are included to provide the broadest coverage possible. Coming from a single hospital, this atlas gives up-to-date information based on years of expertise. The authors present only the methods and techniques that have proved most successful at their hospital in the past two decades. A comprehensive bibliography directs you to further reading.
