Outpatient Liposuction, Fat Grafting, and New Lipoabdominoplasty Techniques 

Live Observational Workshop

Course Directors: Marco Pelosi II, MD and Marco Pelosi III, MD

Faculty: Carlos Avellanet, MD, Guillermo Blugerman, MD and Kevin Jovanovic, MD

Description: Attendees will get hands-on training and needed information on technological advances in liposuction, fat grafting, lipoabdominoplasty and monsplasty. Patient selection practices and safety concerns of new technology make it imperative that the cosmetic surgeon is well informed of the latest developments in liposuction, liposculpting, fat grafting, CO2 pneumodissection assisted fat transfer techniques, monsplasty techniques, lipoabdominoplasty procedures, and new neoumbilicus techniques. The Live Surgery Workshop will succeed in advancing a cosmetic surgeon's practice of body contouring. Instructors will also discuss and demonstrate how to best reduce the effects of aging skin. Discussion will include non-invasive and invasive solutions, gentle laser, topical treatments, daily skin regimens, radio-frequency, used in conjunction with fat transfers in the face and hands emphasizing the value of these fillers and injectables in creating an ideal aesthetic look.


  • Practice liposuction, liposculpting, fat transfer, and current monsplasty and lipoabdominoplasty techniques (mini-abdominoplasty, reverse abdominoplasty, Avelar abdominoplasty, Saldanha abdominoplasty, extended abdominoplasty) including the newest TULUA abdominoplasty procedure and new techniques for creation of scarless neoumbilicus. The teaching will be provided with didactic lectures, videos and live surgery demonstrations.
  • Review and apply CO2 pneumodissection assisted fat grafting techniques. New classification of mons pubis and monsplasty techniques to treat mons pubis ptosis.
  • Define local tumescent anesthesia and its safe use as an alternative to general anesthesia.
  • Review instrumentation and equipment needed for effective and safe liposuction, fat grafting, CO2 pneumodissection assisted fat grafting, and lipoabdominoplasty.
  • Identify routine prophylactic use of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy for abdominoplasty and monsplasty procedures.
  • Discuss prevention and management of complications related to liposuction, fat grafting and lipoabdominoplasty.
  • Review combined liposuction, fat grafting and abdominoplasty procedures. Improve facial aesthetic results using fillers and Botox toxin in conjunction with fat transfer.
