About this book


Over the past decade vertical scar mammaplasty has gained wide popularity amongst surgeons and patients because it stands for minimal scars and long-lasting aesthetic results. The refinements and modifications of the technique achieved during the past decade and now collected in this book will facilitate the use of the technique and give each plastic surgeon the opportunity to adopt his or her own technique to obtain an optimal outcome. The step-by-step instructions and their high-quality illustrations will help improve results, lessen the number of complications and successfully manage any complications that do arise.

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)
