Completely Updated and Revised Under New Editorship
Now this masterpiece has been totally updated and revised under the skilled guidance of its new author/editor, Dr. Glyn E. Jones, a highly talented surgeon and a close, former colleague of Dr. John Bostwick, the original author of this work whose guiding spirit and philosophy still pervade its pages. This third edition, Bostwick's Plastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery pays full deference to John Bostwick's enormous contributions to the field. Dr. Jones continues the honored tradition of this book, adding his own considerable expertise to this master work and providing a personal and practical approach to the topic. He is assisted by a select group of internationally recognized contributors. Together these leading surgeons share their vast experience and clinical insights in plastic surgery of the breast and bring you the latest techniques and developments in the field. The result is a virtual goldmine of valuable information, tips and tricks, and step-by-step operative detail with many new features added to make the book more valuable.
Volume I begins with a section on fundamentals that includes basic chapters on the patient/surgeon relationship and applied anatomy and aesthetics. A new chapter has been added on decision making in implant selection, which updates the reader on device choices as well as their specifications, indications, advantages, and limitations with particular attention to the new cohesive gel offerings. Other chapters in this section focus on new techniques and concepts in breast imaging and the use of allograft materials in breast surgery. A new, cutting-edge chapter is included on fat grafting in the breast with a full exploration of its many applications. Chapters on augmentation, reduction, mastopexy, and aesthetic problems have been expanded and completely revised to reflect the newest aesthetic techniques and the current approaches of Dr. Jones and of contributing experts, Dr. Dennis Hammond, Dr. Elizabeth Hall-Findlay, and Dr. Gino Rigotti. An exciting new chapter by Dr. Peter Rubin thoroughly explores the hot topic of breast surgery in the massive-weight-loss patient with information on indications, choice of technique, step-by-step operative detail, and possible complications and their avoidance.
Volume II is dedicated to the difficult procedures and rewarding results that can be accomplished in breast reconstruction. It includes extensive information on the latest perforator flap (Dr. Peter Neligan) and oncoplastic techniques (Dr. Albert Losken), as well as new information on breast reconstruction after radiation, prophylactic mastectomy and BRCA patients, refinements in TRAM flap surgery, liposuction applications, free flaps, and much, much more.
The educational value of this two-volume work is enormously enhanced by the superb medical illustrations that grace its pages.
