CONTROVERSIES IN AESTHETIC MEDICINE:
5. BODY CONTOURING – A UNIFIED DIVERSITY
ILJA L. KRUGLIKOV
KEY WORDS: Body contouring, hypertrophic adipose tissue, hyaluronan, water, circumference reduction
Results of different aesthetic body treatments are non-specific, and they can be predominantly explained by washout phenomenon. Different accumulation of water in hypertrophic and hyperplastic types of a fat tissue can explain the variability of treatment results in different patients as well as in different body regions of the same patient. Application of non-destructive treatment methods demonstrates significant correlation between water lost from treated region and observed local circumference reduction.
