Discussing the most current and pioneering techniques in breast reconstruction without the use of implants, THE ARTISTRY OF BREAST RECONSTRUCTION WITH AUTOLOGOUS TISSUE is the volume every breast surgeon has been waiting for. Focusing not only on how to reconstruct breasts following mastectomy but also on how to achieve the highest degree of aesthetic success possible, this volume describes in detail Dr. Kroll's techniques in using autologous tissue. Over 500 photographs and custom illustrations demonstrate and compare the different techniques used in breast reconstruction with autologous tissue such as conventional (pedicled) TRAM flaps, free TRAM flaps, the extended latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap, the Rubens fat pad free flap, among others. Also include are chapters on immediate and delayed reconstructions, shaping the breast mound, nipple and areolar reconstruction and choice of technique, follow-up and patient selection. Dr. Kroll's approach to reconstructive breast surgery equally encompasses art and science and both are fully represented in this volume
