Studio Fantozzi, Italy
Title: Applications of anthropometry in torsoplastic surgery
Fabio Fantozzi received his Doctor of Medicine degree from Rome's "La Sapienza" University, one of the oldest and most esteemed universities in Europe. He also completed his residency in general surgery at this distinguished university. Dr. Fantozzi went on to complete Plastic Surgery residency with Professor Ivo Pitanguy at Carlos Chagas University in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-the oldest plastic surgery college in the world. This unique training gave him hands-on experience that many other schools do not provide, and the opportunity to work with some of the leading surgeons in the field of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. His unwavering dedication to quality patient care and safety, and his reputation for producing exceptional results, is what has made our practice one of the leading cosmetic surgery facilities in Italy. He is known among his patients as a doctor who is communicative, thoughtful and highly skilled. He will go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that his patients are well cared for and satisfied with their results. He takes the time to listen to each patient to gain a better understanding of their desires and expectations. Patients from all over the world come to him to benefit from his unique training and medical expertise.
The study of anthropometry defines the beauty of the torso from a geometric perspective. Anthropometry therefore aids the plastic surgeon in planning the reshaping of the torso and also makes positioning of areolae and the umbilicus easier. When performing surgery on the breast, it is necessary to relate the breast to the torso as a whole, being anthropometry perfect for this process. When the anthropometric proportions are respected, the result is aesthetically optimal, and the perceived beauty of the body is enhanced. The study of anthropometry is widespread in the artistic field, and I have chosen the work of sculptor, Carlo Rochet, as the basis for my own use of anthropometry during plastic surgery. Level of Evidence: Level V, diagnostic study.
