Summary John B. Tebbetts, MD, a pioneer in the field of breast augmentation, redefines the surgeon/patient experience in this comprehensive book. By exhaustively covering everything you need to know about breast augmentation, Dr. Tebbets allows for tightly focused guidance that is principle- rather than experienced-based, with numerous decision-making algorithms and outcome-based techniques, not just one-answer solutions. The book addresses topics that range from anesthesia and case studies of specific implants to practical matters like practice management. Focuses exclusively on breast augmentation to make coverage as comprehensive as possible. Includes much-needed information on practice management, including patient consent, systems analysis, marketing, and data acquisitions. Addresses pre-, intra-, and postoperative care of patient for guidance from start to finish. Utilizes a separate chapter for each approach to breast augmentation: inframammary, axillary, periaereolar, or umbilical. Incorporates case studies of specific implants to help you make the right decision for your patients.
