Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. and Dr. Simeon Wall, Sr. of The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery will present advances in liposuction techniques at the annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, April 22 - 27, 2010 in Washington, DC.

Each year, many of the world's leading cosmetic surgery experts gather to share their knowledge at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) annual meeting. This year, Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. and Dr. Simeon Wall, Sr., two board-certified plastic surgeons in Louisiana at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery (http://www.wallcenter.com) will present leading-edge liposuction techniques to their peers.

"Liposuction and body contouring are consistent topics of interest among plastic surgeons and patients alike," explains Dr. Wall, Jr., a Louisiana liposuction specialist. "I've developed an advanced liposuction technique called SAFELipo™. Using SAFELipo on our patients, we simply achieve superior results with less chance of causing contour irregularities than any of the techniques we've used or seen in the past, including traditional, ultrasonic, or laser liposuction procedures. I'm looking forward to instructing my colleagues about the benefits of SAFELipo and how this procedure can improve patient outcomes."

Dr. Wall, Jr., will be the featured speaker for an interactive video presentation, Innovations in Liposuction: Fat Separation, Equalization, & Preservation for Primary and Secondary Contouring, where he will discuss SAFELipo techniques and principles, with examples of before and after cases.

Dr. Wall, Jr. will also be joined at the meeting by his father, Dr. Simeon Wall, Sr., a highly regarded body contouring specialist as well as a pioneer of liposuction in the United States. Together, they will be leading a course entitled Whittling the Waist & Extremities: Dramatic and Comprehensive Body Contouring Incorporating SAFELipo Techniques.

"We will be comparing fat-preserving techniques and technologies to those that destroy fat and burn the tissues," says Dr. Wall, Sr. "As we'll discuss during our presentation, we can obtain exceptional results with liposuction by combining fat preservation techniques with fat grafting. We'll also explain how other surgeons can incorporate SAFELipo into body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty, body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, breast reduction, breast lift, and facelift."

The SAFELipo technique is a breakthrough in body contouring because it gently, yet effectively, sculpts targeted areas while preserving a smooth layer of fat that remains under the skin. This remaining fat provides an even, natural appearance and minimizes scar tissue formation. Additionally, there is no heat source to burn the tissues or the outer skin. Dr. Wall, Jr. originally developed this technique to correct the damage and uneven results some patients had experienced from prior liposuction procedures in Louisiana performed by other surgeons.

"When performing liposuction, we can enhance the results further by augmenting adjoining areas with fat grafting," says Dr. Wall, Jr. "For example, it's common to use liposuction when performing a tummy tuck to sculpt the waist. What is less common is to use that excess fat to enhance the appearance of the hips or buttocks. This can achieve a more comprehensive improvement."

At the conference, Dr. Wall, Jr. also will join a panel of highly regarded plastic surgeons to discuss an innovative 3D body contouring approach that takes into account a patient's unique anatomy, including bone structure and muscles. They will discuss new approaches to liposuction that can be used while enhancing the body, extremities, and chest.

"Through regular collaboration with our colleagues across the country, our society of dedicated plastic surgeons can continue to perfect surgical techniques by incorporating the experience and innovation of many great minds," concludes Dr. Wall, Sr. "Our patients benefit through more satisfying outcomes and improved safety."

The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery (http://www.wallcenter.com) is comprised of three board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Simeon Wall, Sr., Dr. Holly Wall, and Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. They have over 50 years of combined experience in plastic surgery, and are known for their expertise in cosmetic surgery of the breast, body, and face. They perform over 700 breast augmentations and over 2000 cosmetic surgery procedures per year, and have consistently been selected as "Top Plastic Surgeons" by their peers and consumer groups alike. Their commitment to outstanding results has been highlighted by their patients' satisfaction with "no visible scar" breast augmentations, "short scar" breast lift procedures, and their dramatic "mommy makeovers." The Wall Center attracts patients from across the South, predominantly from Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. Dr. Simeon Wall, Sr. has been a fixture of the Ark-La-Tex for over 30 years and has established a national and international clientele. Drs. Holly and Simeon Wall, Jr. are among a dozen surgeons in the country to be selected for Mentor Corporation's advisory board for breast augmentation, the LEAD Program. All three physicians have made it a priority to volunteer their time to perform cleft lip and palate surgeries for needy children. Dr. Wall, Sr. headed the North Louisiana Crippled Childrens Program for the Dept. of Health & Hospitals for 25 years. Drs. Holly and Simeon Wall, Jr. volunteer for the philanthropic organization Interplast in less-developed parts of the world, including trips to China, Peru, Brazil, Haiti, and Mexico. Both Dr. Holly Wall and Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. performed their general surgery and plastic surgery residencies at Stanford University, one of the most highly respected plastic surgery programs in the country. They are Fellows of the American College of Surgeons and are active members of both the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
