The development of techniques using mycutaneous flaps and tissue expanders combined with advances in implant design have created a progressive evolution and improvement in breast reconstruction. These methods demand careful and precise surgical execution and implant selection for successful outcomes. A clear explanation of the finer details of technique have often been lacking from allied texts in the past. Drawing on the expertise of a team of international oncological and plastic surgery professionals, Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery of the Breast offers guidance to surgical techniques and management and examines issues raised by this topic from the perspective of both healthcare professionals and patients alike.The book's didactic style provides a step-by-step guide covering all aspects of modern breast reconstruction. Commentaries at the end of each section provide a critical analysis of the subject and content of corresponding chapters that help formulate a balanced viewpoint on individual techniques. One of the book's many highlights is the section addressing patient issues. It is rare to find issues such as patient expectations together with the psychological impact and side effects of breast reconstruction described so well and in such depth. These features and more make the book a complete, detailed, and reliable source of reference for breast reconstruction.
