New York/Stuttgart - Breast cancer survivors such as Christina Applegate and Kylie Minogue are familiar with the various choices a woman faces prior to and following a mastectomy. Breast reconstruction is a highly individualized procedure. Plastic surgeons need to stay up-to-date regarding new techniques in order to empower their patients to make the right decisions. The second edition of Plastic Reconstructive Surgery of the Breast, published by Thieme, is a practical guide for specialists who need to stay informed about the latest developments in this rapidly changing field.

"Not only is this a reliable reference for surgeons and consultants, but it's also an invaluable tool for residents and students," states author Dr. Christian J. Gabka.

The follow up to the highly-successful first edition includes extended material on cosmetic breast surgery and updated illustrations. This version places a greater emphasis on aesthetic surgery, especially augmentation mammaplasty. New material also includes techniques and demands concerning breast-sparing surgery.

With the assistance of more than 600 illustrations and photographs, Plastic Reconstructive Surgery of the Breast showcases proven methods alongside pioneering techniques and patient-oriented procedures. Step-by-step instructions of surgical sequences as well as tested methods for dealing with complications round out the book.
