This thoroughly updated third edition and heavily illustrated two-volume atlas is the most comprehensive how-to reference on surgery of the breast.

The world's leading surgeons describe and demonstrate the most advanced and successful techniques for all types of general surgery, aesthetic, and reconstructive procedures—oncologic management of breast disease, breast reconstruction, reduction mammoplasty and mastopexy, and augmentation mammoplasty. 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.
