    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.

    1. Introduction 
    Application of the Liposuction
    Techniques and Principles in 
    Specific Body Areas and Pathologies 
    Diego Schavelzon et al.
    1.1 Three dimensional gluteoplasty 
    The buttocks have been a symbol of attraction, sexuality and eroticism since ancient times 
    and therefore, they have an important role in defining the posterior body contour.
    More and more people are talking about and understand the meaning and the role that
    buttocks play in modeling and physical beauty.
    The three dimensional gluteoplasty (3-DGP) is an innovative technique that allows us to
    change volume, shape and firmness, not only in the buttocks but also in the adjacent regions
    such as the thighs and trochanters, becoming an ideal tool to answer the frequent reasons of
    consultation of our patients about this particular area of the body: 
    I want to reduce the volume of my buttocks
    I want to lift my buttocks...
    I want to improve the shape of my buttocks.
    Numerous factors conspire against an ideal buttock. 
    First, the weight of the buttocks and the variations of fatty tissue component in addition to
    the presence of a strong lower groove skin adhesion called subgluteal fold or inferior gluteal
    groove, which is strongly influenced by the action of gravity, cause the appearance of ptosis
    with subsequent buttock deformity and that of the adjacent regions. 
    Other factors such as obesity, the lack of muscle activity (gluteal muscles), the aging process,
    a significant decrease in weight and extreme thinness play an important role in the
    development of gluteal ptosis. 
    The word ptosis comes from the Greek word meaning “falling” or “fall”. From a medical
    perspective refers to prolapsus or caudal displacement, outside its natural site, of a tissue or
    The ophthalmologists were the first to use the term to define the upper eyelid drop, and by
    analogy, over time its use became widespread.

    1.2 Gluteal Ptosis

    What does gluteal ptosis mean? 
    Gluteal ptosis refers to the excess skin and/ or adipose tissue of the gluteal region that
    exceeds the caudal inferior gluteal groove. The progression of gluteal ptosis is usually from
    medial to lateral.
    What does pseudo-ptosis mean? 
    (Sad or long gluteus). When the buttock support system gradually loses its strength and its
    power to lift, the entire gluteus falls, and subgluteal groove descends moving distally. With
    the consequent loss of natural contour and shape the buttocks have. 
    It is critical to have a classification of gluteal ptosis, which serves to select the most
    appropriate technique in each case.
    The extension in depth and length of the subgluteal groove is a key indicator of ptosis. 
    1.2.1 Gonzalez classification of gluteal ptosis
    To determine the degree of ptosis the marking is done with the patient in standing position, 
    with straight hips, and facing backwards. We identify the ischial tuberosity by palpation,
    and from there we draw a vertical line (Line T) and a second parallel to the first one (line M)
    corresponding to the midpoint of the posterior thigh
