When the first edition of this text was published almost 10 years ago, it quickly became the authoritative text in the field. Dr Bostwick, one of the most respected plastic surgeons in the field of breast surgery, provided us with a single-authored text that gave a beautifully presented, easy-to-read, comprehensive look at the anatomy, aesthetics, and surgical techniques involved in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Topics reviewed included breast augmentation, mastopexy, breast reduction, and postoncologic breast reconstruction. The second edition of this text has taken all of these qualities and built on this work, updating it while maintaining the high editorial and production values of the first edition.
