Review: Cosmetic Breast Surgery

From Brazil, where most patients select breast reduction, to Texas, where enlargement is preferred, breast surgery is one of today’s most popular types of cosmetic surgery. Freund, a top practitioner based in New York City, describes in detail what cosmetic breast surgery can and cannot accomplish, as well as some of the corrections that can be made in procedures that may not have worked out as planned. He also thoroughly discusses the risks of silicone implants and addresses the question of breastfeeding. Other books address cosmetic surgery as a whole, with only a chapter on breast surgery, or deal exclusively with the risks of silicone implants, which have turned out to be less threatening than initially thought.
