New Frontiers in Body Contouring for the Benefit of Our Patients
The field of aesthetics has evolved significantly over the past decade to prominently feature exciting, new body contouring modalities in response to patient desires for low downtime, minimally or non-invasive procedures for minimizing fat in targeted areas. Increasingly, the data shows that our patients are requesting body contouring procedures and this segment of aesthetic treatment is the fastest growing portion of the aesthetic market. By partnering with industry, we, as dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and facial plastic surgeons, have become fat conquering heroes. We can now remove fat by freezing, heating, or injecting the desired areas. Our fat treatment modalities include using cryolipolysis, diode laser, radiofrequency, high frequency ultrasound, and deoxycholic acid.
It is to the benefit of our patients that these various modalities can be used alone or in combination for augmented effects to help patients achieve their desired outcomes and look. It is fantastic that body contouring treatment approaches have been widely adopted by our patients and aesthetic practitioners. One of the most exciting aspects is that physicians, together with industry, continue to advance the field of body contouring. Our partnership with industry allows for us to develop and test new treatment modalities and target new anatomical areas for body contouring to best help patients achieve their body contouring goals.
In this special body contouring segment, we are excited to prominently feature the most cutting edge body contouring manuscripts. Herein, we recruited global aesthetic body contouring expert clinician-researchers to share the newest body contouring data. These manuscripts highlight new frontiers and paradigms in body contouring, and provide practical concepts that may benefit our approach to body contouring to tremendously benefit our patients.
