Abstract

A complete circular thinning of the middle portion of the torso is often a better technique at improving a torso which is a circular structure. This concept called “body contouring” allows patients to obtain drastic improvements in their silhouettes. Patients who present abdominal redundancy associated with poorly marked waists and lack of a lumbar curvature are good candidates. Young athletes and body builders who are getting older can improve the mid trunk area. Obese patients who want abdominal improvement can have this technique although it will not altogether improve the torso since the intra-abdominal organs are overdeveloped in these patients. Contour liposuction has been very gratifying in all types of cases but is less satisfactory in cases of redundant, flabby, flaccid skin.
