    In this “Leveling Up” episode of the Award-Winning PRS Global Open Deep Cuts Podcast, Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr. and Dr. Holly Casey Wall discussed the differences in their teaching and surgical styles,  how their wildly different approaches to the same problems can get achieve the same aesthetic endpoints, the techniques of switching hand dominance and eye dominance, the underappreciated aspects of SAFE lipo, the critical importance of a wide area of treatment when doing liposuction, why using a liposuction cannula requires close focus and attention to detail and a fine control of stroke angles and steering, why everything we thought we knew about infiltration is wrong, switching away from the dual plane augmentation, the importance of adequate preoperative counseling when doing a total submuscular augmentation mastopexy, and insights into device development.
    Drs. Simeon and Holly Wall are plastic surgeons in Shreveport, Louisiana. Simeon attended medical school in Texas, and Holly in Utah, but they both arrived simultaneously at Stanford University to start their General Surgery and Plastic Surgery residency training.

    The Walls are a power couple in aesthetic breast and body plastic surgery. The SAFE Lipo and Expansion Vibration Lipofilling techniques were innovated at the Wall Center. The Walls have lectured extensively across the world, have been investigators for several breast implant clinical trials, and advised Allergan and Mentor in breast aesthetics.
