Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The abdominal anatomy is discussed in detail, and should be studied by those beginning to do this surgery. The aesthetic problems presented by these patients are discussed . . This should be studied by plastic surgeons, and will be valuable in the prevention of complications or more significant problems. . This is a useful book for presurgical consultation, quick to read, clearly presented information, without frills. I believe that the hopes of ... the authors have, by and large, been fulfilled." (I. Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 28 (6), 2006)
