The daily exercise of assessing and observing each patient that seeks a plastic surgeon allows for identification of delicate asymmetric details in the human figure, which in most cases make each individual unique. In some cases, however, more marked changes may bring discomfort, insecurity and even social segregation..
Patients are often not aware of their asymmetries until these are shown to them. This should not occur with surgeons, since recognizing them helps choosing the best surgical approach, while neglecting them can culminate in a final result in which asymmetries that were not noticed before become more evident. This book, written by a specialist in plastic surgery and mastology, approaches breast asymmetries in a thorough and innovative manner. The book also has case reports and rich illustrative photographs.
