Video atlas features state-of-the-art breast augmentation procedures from world renowned aesthetic plastic surgeons
Statistics consistently show breast augmentation ranks as the first or second most common surgical procedure performed
in the U.S. Yet reoperation rates of 15-24% along with prolonged periods of pain and convalescence, indicate room for
improvement. Breast Augmentation Video Atlas, Second Edition by renowned breast augmentation expert William P. Adams
Jr., features contributions and best practices from the world's most prominent breast surgeons.
Pearls and pitfalls throughout the book reflect collective wisdom gleaned from years of hands-on experience and
development of cutting-edge approaches.
The multimedia resource encompasses the latest surgical approaches, as well as salient nonsurgical aspects of breast
augmentation such as patient education. Richly illustrated, this step-by-step video guide enhances understanding of the
principles, procedures, and nuances refined during the last decade, enabling surgeons to deliver optimal results to
patients. Fourteen text chapters enhanced by superb videos, reflect the full spectrum of state-of-the-art primary and
revision breast techniques, including augmentation mammoplasty and flash breast augmentation.
delineate described procedures
Videos posted online in the Thieme MediaCenter cover tissue-based planning, 3D imaging, dual-plane breast
augmentation, the inframammary approach and the dual-plane pocket, the transaxillary approach, periareolar mastopexy
augmentation, and revision breast augmentation
Chapters detailing the use of biofilms, new implants, and breast fat transfer, underscore the role of science in
advancing the art of breast augmentation
Invaluable techniques and methodology discussed in this book and demonstrated in the videos, serve as the central
algorithm for procedural refinements and efficacious patient outcomes. As such, this is a must have, "how to do it"
resource for all plastic surgeons specializing in breast augmentation.
