For May 2016, our content update focuses on the increasingly popular, but complex surgical practice of Liposuction and related body contouring procedures. ASAPS (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) cite Liposuction as the second most popular procedure, involving both female and male patients. Although the Liposuction surgical procedure seems straight forward, there have been constant developments over many years, to improve the procedure and its outcomes and to reduce complications. We have assembled a selection of related surgical presentations and a live surgical video to cover this issue; contributors include Dr Riccardo Frati, Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe, Prof James Frame and Dr Shailesh Vadodara.
