For nearly two decades and two editions, Plastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery by John Bostwick III, MD, has been widely recognized as the definitive breast surgery reference for surgeons around the world. Filled with the best techniques and expert instruction, it has guided countless surgical professionals to better outcomes and, as a result, has given thousands of patients a better outlook on life.

Winner of both the American Medical Illustrator's Award and the American Medical Writer's Award for the best medical book, this remarkable book has been widely praised by reviewers and readers alike as the "Bible of Plastic Surgery of the Breast."

Completely Updated and Revised Under New Editorship

Now this masterpiece has been totally updated and revised under the skilled guidance of its new author/editor, Dr. Glyn E. Jones, a highly talented surgeon and a close, former colleague of Dr. John Bostwick, the original author of this work whose guiding spirit and philosophy still pervade its pages. This third edition, Bostwick's Plastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery pays full deference to John Bostwick's enormous contributions to the field. Dr. Jones continues the honored tradition of this book, adding his own considerable expertise to this master work and providing a personal and practical approach to the topic. He is assisted by a select group of internationally recognized contributors. Together these leading surgeons share their vast experience and clinical insights in plastic surgery of the breast and bring you the latest techniques and developments in the field. The result is a virtual goldmine of valuable information, tips and tricks, and step-by-step operative detail with many new features added to make the book more valuable.

Comprehensive Coverage

Volume I begins with a section on fundamentals that includes basic chapters on the patient/surgeon relationship and applied anatomy and aesthetics. A new chapter has been added on decision making in implant selection, which updates the reader on device choices as well as their specifications, indications, advantages, and limitations with particular attention to the new cohesive gel offerings. Other chapters in this section focus on new techniques and concepts in breast imaging and the use of allograft materials in breast surgery. A new, cutting-edge chapter is included on fat grafting in the breast with a full exploration of its many applications. Chapters on augmentation, reduction, mastopexy, and aesthetic problems have been expanded and completely revised to reflect the newest aesthetic techniques and the current approaches of Dr. Jones and of contributing experts, Dr. Dennis Hammond, Dr. Elizabeth Hall-Findlay, and Dr. Gino Rigotti. An exciting new chapter by Dr. Peter Rubin thoroughly explores the hot topic of breast surgery in the massive-weight-loss patient with information on indications, choice of technique, step-by-step operative detail, and possible complications and their avoidance.

Volume II is dedicated to the difficult procedures and rewarding results that can be accomplished in breast reconstruction. It includes extensive information on the latest perforator flap (Dr. Peter Neligan) and oncoplastic techniques (Dr. Albert Losken), as well as new information on breast reconstruction after radiation, prophylactic mastectomy and BRCA patients, refinements in TRAM flap surgery, liposuction applications, free flaps, and much, much more.

Filled with take-away messages and valuable insights, Aesthetic Breast Surgery by Elizabeth Hall-Findlay, MD, is a masterful text that you will refer to time and again. It presents a personal and time-proven approach to all forms of aesthetic breast surgery.

This book is a distillation of the author's extensive experience and provides her unique perspective on problem-solving and patient analysis. Dr. Hall-Findlay has spent years measuring and studying patient results to help other surgeons use "science" to improve the "art" of aesthetic breast surgery. She has developed an approach to analysis and surgery which is simple and consistent-with results that can be achieved by all surgeons.

Prepare Yourself for a Master Class in Aesthetic Breast Surgery

With personal insights and wisdom pervading every page, this book provides the reader with a master class in aesthetic breast surgery by one of the world's leading experts. Dr. Hall-Findlay is widely known for her popularization of the medial pedicle approach to vertical breast reduction and this is covered in depth. However, her accomplishments in breast surgery extend far beyond this technique. Her ongoing innovations continue to advance the field. In this semi-atlas work, she brings her considerable expertise to bear on the range of aesthetic breast surgery procedures as she describes her individual approach to patient evaluation, operative planning, clinical decision-making, and operative technique.

Comprehensive Coverage

Divided into nine comprehensive chapters, the book begins with key chapters on analysis, concepts, applied anatomy, and patient selection that lay the foundation for the technical descriptions that follow. These introductory chapters are not to be missed. They offer a unique approach to patient assessment and alert the reader to critical anatomic landmarks that strongly influence the success of operative procedures. Concepts such as the breast footprint (high-breasted and low-breasted patients) are examined to help readers understand the realistic possibilities for what can and cannot be achieved when planning breast surgery. The emphasis is on the decision-making process involved in choosing the right approach for each patient and then planning the procedure with these landmarks in mind.

The next seven chapters are devoted to operative technique. A consistent format is used in each chapter with detailed information on patient evaluation, planning, technique, revisions, complications, and outcomes. These pages are liberally illustrated with step-by-step descriptions depicting breast augmentation, vertical breast reduction with the medial pedicle, liposuction-only breast reduction, mastopexy, mastopexy/augmentation, and surgery for breast asymmetries. Information on avoidance and treatment of problems and complications is also highlighted throughout the book. Of particular note is the comprehensive information on nipple necrosis in the reduction chapter; this provides essential information to help surgeons who are faced with decreased blood supply to the nipple.

Beautifully Illustrated

Beautiful and dramatic color illustrations and numerous preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative images help the reader visualize the steps of each procedure and appreciate the excellent long-term results that can be achieved.

Unique Features

Throughout the technique chapters, artwork icons are paired with photographic images to better elucidate the surgical technique being described. Key points are highlighted, and a summary box outlining central issues concludes each chapter. Two DVDs contain operative video to complement the text.

For any digital TV developer or manager, the maze of standards and specifications related to MHP and OCAP is daunting-you have to patch together pieces from several standards to gather all the necessary knowledge you need to compete worldwide. The standards themselves can be confusing, and contain many inconsistencies and missing pieces. Interactive TV Standards provides a guide for actually deploying these technologies for a broadcaster or product and application developer.

Understanding what the APIs do is essential for your job, but understanding how the APIs work and how they relate to each other at a deeper level helps you do it better, faster and easier. Learn how to spot when something that looks like a good solution to a problem really isn't. Understand how the many standards that make up MHP fit together, and implement them effectively and quickly. Two DVB insiders teach you which elements of the standards that are needed for digital TV, highlight those elements that are not needed, and explain the special requirements that MHP places on implementations of these standards.

Once you've mastered the basics, you will learn how to develop products for US, European, and Asian markets--saving time and money. By detailing how a team can develop products for both the OCAP and MHP markets, Interactive TV Standards teaches you how to to leverage your experience with one of these standards into the skills and knowledge needed to work with the critical, related standards.

Does the team developing a receiver have all the knowledge they need to succeed, or have they missed important information in an apparently unrelated standard? Does an application developer really know how to write a reliable piece of software that runs on any MHP or OCAP receiver? Does the broadcaster understand the business and technical issues well enough to deploy MHP successfully, or will their project fail? Increase your chances of success the first time with Interactive TV Standards.
