Overview


Though cosmetic breast surgery is most commonly an elective procedure, it is an important, irreversible decision that demands careful consideration. In Cosmetic Breast Surgery, distinguished plastic surgeon Robert M. Freund—who has worked on the breasts of thousands of women in his private and public New York City practices—offers clear explanations and sensitive advice for women curious about having their breasts enlarged, reduced, or lifted. In a factual, conversational tone, Dr. Freund—recently named one of New York's leading plastic surgeons by New York magazine—candidly discusses all of the risks and rewards involved, different operating procedures and options, the right and wrong reasons to have surgery, choosing the right surgeon, pre- and postoperative care, and what to do if a procedure goes wrong. Written with a woman's best interest in mind, Cosmetic Breast Surgery provides photographs throughout and is essential reading for all women considering breast surgery.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
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. Concise and complete, Freund's title offers the best broad coverage of the subject. Highly recommended for consumer health collections.-Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with the Tuscarawas Cty.
