Produktbeschreibung
Special body contouring surgical techniques have been developed in recent years that can specifically tighten loose skin to better fit an individual's slimmer body, allowing them complete achievement of their new lifestyle, maximizing their self-image in conjunction with the health benefits of dramatic weight loss. This book is designed to be a surgeon's resource for multiple approaches to each problem area that body contouring works to solve. Each section covers a specific region of the body with highly respected surgeons presenting their own technique, offering the reader options in considering which style would best serve their patient. Strauch has also acquired experts to lend their in-depth knowledge on the surrounding surgical concerns, such as anesthesia, pain management and complications. In addition, there are chapters on nutrition and the psychiatric management of eating disorders which provide the plastic surgeon with insight to these unique patients.
Encyclopedia of Body Sculpting after Massive Weight Loss provides uniquely comprehensive coverage of a variety of state-of-the-art surgical body modification procedures for the patient who has overcome obesity.

The text begins with an introduction to the particular physiologic and psychological implications of massive weight loss, including the effects on nutrition, anesthesia, pain control, and psychology, and a review of the current techniques utilized in bariatric surgery. The sections that follow feature concise descriptions and full-color illustrations that guide readers through each region of the body, from the face and neck, through the breasts, arms and mid-abdomen, to the back and thighs. Expert authors from around the world, many of whom are the innovators of the procedure they describe, offer multiple surgical options for each anatomic region in order to give readers the opportunity to choose the optimal approach for their specific patient.
