Learn Gluteal Sculpting from the Master 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 not only a mastery 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 patients’ demands. Comprehensive Coverage This magnificently illustrated semi-atlas work consists of seven chapters in two parts. Part I 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 eight-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, 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.
