Part 1 of 3. This video demonstrates a circumferential truncal rejuvenation procedure by performing by incorporating a full abdominoplasty with excision of sub-Scarpal fat, concurrently with circumferential SAFELipo. The three-step process of SAFELipo allows complete, circumferential liposuction of the entire trunk including the area of the abdominoplasty flap, without disrupting the vascular supply of the flap. Excision of the sub-Scarpal fat of the abdominoplasty flap eliminates the parasitic deep fat, decreasing the metabolic load on the flap. These techniques allow for a circumferential rejuvenation of the entirety of the trunk while minimizing complications.
