Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:"This beautifully illustrated book on the vertical scar mammaplasty covers multiple surgeons' techniques giving a broader view of this procedure. The photos are excellent and the descriptions of techniques are easy to follow. . This is the most up-to-date compilation of most of the techniques for vertical scar mammaplasty and would be valuable for all surgeons performing cosmetic breast surgery and breast reconstruction. This book is valuable as a reference for any physician's library." (Melvin A. Shiffman, Australasian Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Vol. 2 (1), 2006)
