What is unique about this book is its focus on artistry. Before now, very little has been written on the artistic aspects of breast reconstruction. What this book provides—possibly for the first time—is some basic principles for transferring, shaping, and revising a TRAM (or other autologous tissue flap) so that it really looks like a breast that matches its opposite counterpart.
This book is intended to help improve the aesthetic quality of the reader’s results, whatever the current level of those results might be. The book includes chapters on the fundamentals of breast reconstruction and is therefore suitable for the beginning surgeon, the intended target audience is the more experienced surgeon who seeks superior aesthetic outcomes.
Focusing not only on how to reconstruct breasts following mastectomy but also on how to achieve the highest degree of aesthetic success possible, this volume describes in detail techniques in using autologous tissue.
Over 500 photographs and custom illustrations demonstrate and compare the different techniques used in breast reconstruction with autologous tissue such as conventional (pedicled) TRAM flaps, free TRAM flaps, the extended latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap, the Rubens fat pad free flap, among others. Also include are chapters on immediate and delayed reconstructions, shaping the breast mound, nipple and areolar reconstruction and choice of technique, follow-up and patient selection. Contents
