A 50 Year Perspective in Body Contour Surgery – Keeping the Dignity of the Body During the Aging Process. The Keynote Speech by Ivo Pitanguy, MD from the 45th Annual Baker Gordon Symposium on Cosmetic Surgery.
Dr. Ivo Pitanguy has been a pioneer in many aspects of both aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, and has authored several sentinel articles on such topics as facial rejuvenation, facial nerve anatomy, breast reduction and body contour techniques. His academic and clinical influence has extended not only to his patients, but also to the many surgeons he has trained throughout his career. Most of the program directors of residency training in Brazil have studied under Dr. Pitanguy, and his influence extends not only through South America, but globally as well. This video contains the concepts of Dr. Pitanguy’s personal evolution and progression regarding maintaining the dignity of the human body through the aging process.
