Online PR News – 07-July-2012 – Denver, CO – Campanile Plastic Surgery develops popular C.L.A.S.S. (Combined Lipo-Abdominoplasty Sculpting & Shaping) procedure for men and women who want high-quality body contouring results.

Denver, Colorado (July 2012) – Summer is here and, once again, it’s bathing suit season. Men and women who are considering body contouring surgery to improve their shape have a new option in Dr. Frank Campanile’s C.L.A.S.S. (Combined LipoAbdominoplasty Sculpting & Shaping) procedure, available exclusively at Campanile Plastic Surgery in Denver (

A board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 15 years of surgical experience, Dr. Campanile developed the revolutionary C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck technique by combining elements of Brazilian, Italian and American techniques, then further refining these techniques into a single procedure.

“The tummy tuck has always been my favorite procedure to perform,” says Dr. Campanile. “Post-surgery, patients see significant body contour improvement and are extremely pleased with their results. Seeing their excitement is always a satisfying experience for me.”

Traditionally, tummy tucks have been performed without extensive use of liposuction. Until recently, surgeons had concerns over the possible effects liposuction could have on the underlying skin’s blood supply. Potentially, compromised blood supply in the abdominal area could lead to scarring and tissue loss. Recent innovations in abdominoplasty techniques have made it safer to combine the procedure with liposuction of the entire abdomen and flanks.

“The C.L.A.S.S. technique consists of a lipoabdominoplasty technique first introduced in Brazil as well as additional steps that address the abdomen during surgery,” notes Dr. Campanile. “Most notably, the technique allows me to avoid in almost all cases the use of surgical drains, which patients usually need to empty on their own throughout the recovery process. Drains are unnecessary because I use special internal sutures that help diminish fluid retention.”

The C.L.A.S.S. procedure also has a slightly shorter recovery than the typical two to four weeks associated with a traditional tummy tuck.

“I would never return to the previous tummy tuck procedures I learned during my residency training,” adds Dr. Campanile. “While it takes slightly longer to perform the surgery, as there are many steps involved, the C.L.A.S.S. technique has clear advantages and the final contour clearly justifies its use.”

Campanile Plastic Surgery ( was founded in Denver by Dr. Frank Campanile, a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who has over 15 years of plastic surgery experience.
