Shiffman: Liposuction Principles and Practice





The contributors to this book have spent time and effort presenting the cosmetic and plastic surgeon with information on the techniques and uses of liposuction for cosmetic and non-cosmetic surgery purposes. This constitutes the first book on cosmetic and non-cosmetic liposuction. It provides a how-to-do manual for all procedures of cosmetic and non-cosmetic liposuction and is abundantly illustrated. Although new technology helps improve results, it is experience, care, and skill of the cosmetic surgeon that is necessary to obtain optimal results that satisfy the patient.
