"The Resident Reader: Articles that Will Heighten Your Surgical Skills" is a compilation of article collections organized by different subsections of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery featuring the essential articles for residents. This project was led by PRS Resident Ambassadors to the Editorial Board. Each subsection was built by groups of plastic surgery residents from around the world. This section was most-recently cultivated by Francesco Egro, MD and Chad Teven, MD. .

This video presents the latest in the evolution of thought and techniques related to aesthetically satisfying breast reconstruction. While creating or recreating an aesthetically pleasing breast shape in reconstructive surgery is largely self-evident, accomplishing an excellent outcome can present challenges. This lecture and video present techniques that not only analyze the problematic breast, but come up with easy surgical strategies to create reproducible results.

The application perforator flaps in breast reconstruction over the last fifteen years has dramatically improved our knowledge on perforator vessel anatomy and has improved the specific surgical techniques required for a safe harvest of the flap. We witnessed decreased donor site morbidity and we have widened the spectrum of available flaps for partial and total breast reconstruction. Loco-regional flaps like the thoraco-dorsal artery perforator (TDAP) flap and the lateral intercostal artery perforator (LICAP) flap are mainly indicated for partial lateral breast reconstruction. Deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEAP) flaps, superior and inferior gluteal artery perforator flaps as well as superficial femoral artery perforator flaps will be discussed as a possible donor site for total breast reconstruction.
