This heavily illustrated two-volume atlas is the most comprehensive "how-to" reference on surgery of the breast.

The text is illustrated throughout with over 4,100 drawings and full-color preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative photographs. Editorial comments at the end of each chapter provide an alternative perspective and address current controversies. This thoroughly updated Third Edition features a greatly expanded section on augmentation mammoplasty. Other new chapters cover deep inferior epigastric perforator flap breast reconstruction, skin preserving delayed breast reconstruction, and nipple-sparing mastectomy. Coverage also includes new information on managing oncoplastic surgery, surveillance following breast reconstruction, reconstruction following tumor recurrence, and the role of stem cells.
