Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, October 2003: Many women and men either choose to have breast or chest surgery, or find that it is a medical necessity. Unfortunately very few resources are available that address the needs of these people. In My Breasts, My Choice the authors deal with both the emotional and practical issues faced by individuals undergoing breast surgery. This inspiring and heartfelt read is divided into two parts. Part I consists of the images and stories of 10 people who have experienced breast reduction surgery, augmentation, breast cancer diagnostics, reconstructive and other surgical procedures. These moving stories are told by breast cancer survivors, transsexuals, and women and men choosing surgery for health and personal reasons who want to share their stories and start talking about this important issue. Part II consists of 10 articles that introduce breast surgery procedures in an accessible way, as well as explore alternative methods of self-care both before and after the surgery. Throughout the book the authors encourage a body-positive, sex-positive, and pro-choice perspective that celebrates and validates the women and men in these pages and the decisions they have made.
