This superbly illustrated book covers all aspects of liposuction: anatomy, pathology, biochemistry, preoperative care, equipment, the full range of procedures, complications, postoperative care, outcomes, lipedema, and medical legal aspects. Compared with the successful first edition, the text has been extensively updated and many additional chapters included, with particular attention to recently introduced techniques. While new technology helps to improve results, experience, care, and skill on the part of the cosmetic surgeon are essential if optimal results satisfactory to the patient are to be achieved. The contributors to this book have expended much time and effort to present the cosmetic and plastic surgeon with as much information as possible on the techniques and uses of liposuction for the purposes of cosmetic and non-cosmetic surgery. Liposuction: Principles and Practice will be of value for residents and fellows and for practicing and highly experienced surgeons in plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, general surgery, and other subspecialties.
