Editorial Comment on “SAFE Circumferential Liposuction with Abdominoplasty”

      The technique described by Dr Simeon Wall, Jr, in “SAFE Circumferential Liposuction with Abdominoplasty” in this issue of Clinics in Plastic Surgery, has some interesting details that are worth discussing. First, Dr Wall attributes a majority of his attained contour improvement to circumferential liposuction and its accompanying skin retraction rather than to the abdominoplasty component. Although I am not aware of any studies that confirm or deny the effectiveness of Dr Wall's SAFE liposuction technique, the results Dr Wall shares are impressive and should be considered by all who perform liposuction. It is my hope that the publication of Dr Wall's article in this issue, along with his presentations at national meetings, will lead others to confirm the technique's benefits. If that does occur, and I believe it will, SAFE liposuction can potentially revolutionize the way liposuction is performed.
