Published chapter in new plastic surgery textbook

Hello everyone.

I wanted to share my recent chapter publication in the new Grabb & Smith's plastic surgery textbook.  The textbook is now in its seventh edition and has consistently served as a premiere reference for plastic surgeons in training as well as those already established.  The chapter is Lower Body Lift & Thighplasty and covers the indications, techniques, and photographic documentation of the key parts of a lower body lift and thighplasty.  As some of you may know, a lower body lift is designed to correct circumferential (all the way around) waist laxity often associated with significant weight loss.  It can be thought of as a buttock lift and back of thigh lift in the back, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) in the front, and a thigh lift on the side.

Thank you,
