Liposuction is the first cosmetic procedure to change beutification surgery from open 
extensive excision surgery into a more atraumatic closed one. It gave rise to the 
modern understanding of minimally scarring and minimally invasive surgery and 
changed the understanding and preferences of both patients and doctors. It also 
became the most common procedure in cosmetic surgery world-wide, practiced by an 
increased number of physicians from various specialties. The techniques of fat 
grafting, closely bound with liposuction, have found widespread application and fat 
stem cells seem to be changing the future of many areas in medicine.
Training became necessary in view of the constantly changing and developing 
character of medical science, and because of the progress in new devices emerging on 
the market.
Turning the pages, the reader will find a lot of information about advances, tips and 
tricks, and important milestones in the development of the different methods 
available, such as classic, power, ultrasound, laser and radio-frequency assisted 
liposuction etc. Most useful anesthesia techniques are described and discussed, and 
guidelines have been established for medical indications. Special attention is paid to 
good patient selection, complications and risks.
We have invited renowned specialists from all continents to share their valued 
expertise and experience. We will never be able to thank every single person or 
institution who helped in fulfilling our work. The difficult task of writing a 
comprehensive book about the status and science of the most desired and most 
practiced procedure in cosmetic surgery, in order to prevent dissatisfaction and 
misunderstandings, was marked with hard work and continuous improvements. It is a 
privilege to share our knowledge concerning contemporary advances in this area of 
medicine, and thus help people change and improve their lives. It is our greatest 
reward as well.
