Breast augmentation has been the most frequently performed surgery in the USA for a number of years, and it is also one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries internationally. When taking in to account reconstruction after disease, this is an area of immense relevance to all plastic surgeons.

Management of both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery of the breast involves a myriad of options. This book will assist the plastic surgeon on navigating through this unique terrain. Each chapter analyzes specific clinical issues that are frequently encountered in the plastic surgeon's practice, with the goal of providing the plastic surgeon with clear and contemporary information detailing available aesthetic and reconstructive alternatives for surgery involving the breasts.
