Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.

Liposuction began as a simple, minimally invasive method of reducing the amount of localized fat in a region. Today it is a sophisticated and complex process, with many variations in purpose and technique.

In this course, expert surgeons offer a detailed description of various minimally invasive and non-invasive options for contouring the face, neck, and body. They also describe procedure limitations and treatment of complications. Finally, they discuss indications for various approaches with case study descriptions so readers might be assisted with treating patients in their everyday practice.

The students here will also learn about all recent advances and the evolution and utilization of various energy-based devices and combination treatments.

In this self-study course, you will learn about:

  • History of Body Contouring
  • The Safe Evolution of Liposuction into Liposculpture
  • Use of Technologies to Improve the Liposuction Outcome Including Skin Texture and Form
  • VASER Liposuction – How to Get Natural Results with Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction?
  • Laser-Assisted Liposuction in Face and Body Contouring
  • Non-invasive Alternatives for Liposuction
  • Liposuction for Fat Transfer: The “Island Technique”
  • Enhanced Abdominal Contouring
  • Posterior Torso and Buttocks Contour Enhancement
  • Complications and Solutions for Post-Operative Liposuction Deformities
  • and more…

This study material will a useful resource for students and medical practitioners of plastic surgery, dermatology, gynecology, maxillofacial surgery, and cosmetology.
