The illustrious authors of this book focus on the latest developments in the field of lipoplasty and associated techniques, including their combination with dermolipectomy. Lipoplasty was triggered by the technique introduced by Schrudde, whereby redundant fat was removed using a gynecological curette through large buttonhole incisions. Illouz and his friends indefatigably promoted the evolving technique, and once methods were made known on the American continent, they spread like wildfire. Credit must be given to all those who followed: surgeons, manufactures and critics, who developed technique variations, who refined instruments, who merged old and new methods and who implemented progressive technical tools. One of the latest interesting developments is the Ultrasound-Assisted Lipoplasty (UAL), proposed by Zocchi.
