Important advances have been achieved in vertical scar mammaplasty since the successful first edition of this book, which described the fundamentals of the technique. This new, completely revised and updated edition fully reflects the evolution in vertical scar mammaplasty during the past decade. Previously published procedures have been refined, and a variety of newer techniques are presented, including several breast reduction procedures using a short scar and techniques of mastopexy that pay specific attention to enhancement of breast projection and upper fullness. Extensive consideration is also given to the management of complications and suboptimal treatment outcomes. An impressive list of international authors have contributed to the book, each describing their own technique step by step in the manner of a manual. The surgical techniques are precisely depicted in high-quality illustrations, and readers will also have access to videos that will shorten the learning curve.
