Body contouring has been a rapidly growing portion of cosmetic surgery over the last 10-20 years. Over that period, technology has increased to not only help expedite each procedure but improve the overall cosmesis and satisfaction of each patient. Surgeons must understand what technology is available, how it works, and which patient’s it will benefit the most. Not only does the surgeon need to understand these technologies but needs to understand which procedures they may be used in conjunction with to obtain maximal results and become an advance body contouring specialist. In this presentation, we will examine three types of body contouring technology including: Radiofrequency assisted lipolysis, helium driven plasma energy, and vibrational amplification of sound energy at resonance.
