Offering the perspective of seasoned surgeons who have seen, thought about, and worked through the common and uncommon problems that can arise in aesthetic breast surgery, this book serves as a reference to guide surgeons through the steps of understanding, potentially avoiding, and then treating these issues. Managing Common and Uncommon Complications of Aesthetic Breast Surgery is methodical in its approach, beginning with key relevant highlight of embryology and anatomy of the breast and continuing into common problems in breast surgery, implant-related surgery, breast lifts and reductions. A variety of pitfalls are also explored from rupture, capsular contracture, and implant malposition to the rare and uncommon surface-texture related lymphoma. Every process is explored in depth with carefully crafted, practical, and experientially tested solutions proposed. Featuring real patient photos, detailed tables, and high definition videos for supplemental learning, this text is a one-stop reference to help surgeons understand, manage, and treat complications in aesthetic breast surgery both common and uncommon.
