Title: Applications of anthropometry in torsoplastic surgery
Biography: Fabio Fantozzi
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.
