Fat Removal: Invasive and Non–invasive Body contouring
Edited by Mathew M. Avram, MD, JD, Harvard Medical School, MA, USA
The perception of an inadequate body shape is a cause of concern to many people, and new techniques for altering body shape are increasingly being developed and offered to patients. Of these, the removal and transfer of fat is fast growing in importance and availability. This practical guide offers a comprehensive overview of this rapidly–evolving field, and thorough coverage of the implementation of fat removal techniques, both invasive and non–invasive, in a cosmetic practice.
It begins with an overview of basic fat anatomy and physiology as an important introduction to this topic. The distinction between the physiology and treatment of cellulite and fat is also discussed. The next section of the book covers invasive treatments of fat such as traditional liposuction, laser–assisted liposuction, fat transfer procedures and mesotherapy. The latter half of the book largely focuses on non–invasive treatments for fat, including radiofrequency, ultrasound, cooling and laser technologies for fat removal. Throughout, potential complications and pitfalls of the various treatments are discussed.
Edited by Matthew Avram, with contributions from a group of clinical stars, this book will appeal to cosmetic dermatologists, plastic surgeons, aesthetic medical practitioners, and obstetricians/gynaecologists
