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.
