Gluteal sculpting procedures have become increasingly
popular today as patients requesting body contouring
improvements recognize that a nicely shaped buttock provides
balance and proportion to the total body aesthetic. The
Art of Gluteal Sculpting, by Dr. Constantino G.
Mendieta, an acknowledged expert in this area, is the
definitive work on this topic.
The dramatic increase in requests for gluteal contouring
procedures requires that plastic surgeons develop a mastery
not only of a range of body contouring procedures, but also
the ability to recognize each patient's body frame type so
that appropriate interventions can be planned. This book
provides surgeons with the comprehensive, clinical
information they need to meet their patient demands.
This magnificently illustrated semi-atlas work consists of 7
comprehensive chapters in two parts. The beautiful 4-color
artwork depicts the surface anatomy as well as the
underlying structures to enhance understanding. Numerous
case examples demonstrate the excellent outcomes from these
procedures. Step-by-step technique is demonstrated for each
of the procedures discussed. One DVD with 2 operative video
accompanies the book.
Part I book begins with a seminal chapter: Evaluation Based
on Anatomic Landmarks that sets the tone for the entire book
and demonstrates the importance of anatomy in influencing
outcomes. In this invaluable chapter, Dr. Mendieta provides
his comprehensive evaluation system developed and refined
over an 8-year period. This system represents "another way
of seeing;" it provides the foundation for all of the
techniques that follow with critical guidelines for
assessing specific anatomic components and developing a
roadmap for treating individual patients. The second
chapter on Patient Selection and Clinical Decision Making
takes the principles established in the evaluation system
and applies them to a range of patients with different body
types, quantities of fat, and anatomic configurations. From
this clinical application a treatment plan is derived and
recommended for each patient type discussed.
Part II focuses on different techniques for gluteal
reshaping. A detailed chapter on fat grafting introduces
this section; it provides step-by step detail on Dr.
Mendieta’s technique for large volume liposuction and fat
grafting in the gluteal area. This is his preferred method
used in the majority of cases, and he details its
advantages, limitations and potential outcomes. The next two
chapters focus on techniques for implant augmentation: one
on intramuscular implant placement and the second,
contributed by the noted surgeon, Dr. Jose de la Pena, is on
subfascial implant augmentation. The final two chapters
focus on excisional techniques. Chapter 6 describes Dr.
Mendieta's exciting new Miami Thong Lift for Inner Gluteal
Fold Excision while chapter 7 provides a detailed
description of Circumferential Body and Buttock Lifting by
renowned surgeon Dr. Al Aly.
