They Wrote the Book on Liposuction and Body Contouring, Well, The Chapter

Los Angeles, CA, September 26, 2005 - In a new textbook on plastic surgery, Los Angeles-based Dr. Grant Stevens collaborated with two other surgeons to write the chapter on liposuction, tummy tucks, thigh lifts, and buttocks lifts to help set the gold standard of practice for plastic surgeons and residents worldwide.

Chapter 55, entitled "Liposuction and Body Contouring," will appear in the textbook entitled, Current Therapy In Plastic Surgery. The authors emphasize that liposuction, the single most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedure, plays a major role in our society. In the chapter they describe the state-of-the-art techniques for liposuction and excisional body lift, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), thigh lift, and buttocks lift. The authors describe criteria for determining which patients are the best candidates for these procedures.

The chapter provides important information on the tumescent method and
power-assisted liposuction, which provide the highest level of safety. The
authors offer guidance on post-operative care and the avoidance of
complications. For further information or to order the book, please visit the Elsevier website.
