Circumareolar Techniques for Breast Surgery presents the technical innovations that have largely eliminated the complications of the circumareolar approach - limiting the incision to the areolar skin junction, thus avoiding scars - as applied to mastopexy in the large and small breast, reduction of the larger breast, internal breast repair of the augmented breast, for implant removal or replacement, as well as the role of liposuction. Also included are the finer points of technique, suturing, pre-surgical marking, and post-surgical dressing. With 350 illustrations, this book is a must-have source for the plastic surgeon
