Abstract

Endoscopic abdominoplasty is an appropriate procedure for a highly select patient population. This procedure is enhanced, and the goals are more readily achieved, by the use of a balloon dissector. Our cadaveric and subsequent clinical experience has proven this technique to be safe and cost effective.
