This book documents the important advances that have been achieved in abdominoplasty over the past 15 years, in particular through the introduction of a nontraumatic approach associated with minimal morbidity owing to the avoidance of resection of abdominal panniculus and damage to the perforating vessels. The surgical principles of this procedure, including in combination with liposuction, are fully described by its developer, Juarez Avelar, with the aid of a wealth of color illustrations. A miniabdominoplasty option is also discussed and recent significant technical contributions such as various new plication techniques and means of minimizing complications are clearly presented. In addition, a series of chapters explain how the surgical principles underlying the described nontraumatic method of abdominoplasty can now be applied to other areas of the body, for example to improve rhytidoplasty, ear reconstruction, body contouring, and medial thigh lifting. This book enables the plastic surgeon to apply the latest abdominoplasty techniques effectively and safely.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a compilation of procedures depicting standard, innovative, and personalized techniques for body contouring with a particular emphasis on the abdomen and buttocks. ... This book offers a historical review of abdominal contouring as well as original techniques that have been missing in other books on this topic. It will benefit more seasoned surgeons who wish to augment their armamentarium of procedures." (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2017)
