Fleur-de-lis Abdominoplasty and Neo-umbilicus.

Clin Plast Surg 2019 Jan;46(1):49-60

Plastic Surgery Division, Botucatu Medical School, Paulista State University, Rua Tomaz Antonio Gonzaga, 160 Lins, São Paulo 16400-465, Brazil.

Body contouring for patients with massive weight loss may demand not only lifting but also some extent of central body tightening to achieve complete tissue readjustment. Although the fleur-de-lis procedure usually achieves nice contouring results, poor visible scars, including umbilical complications, have restricted the indications for the anterior vertical approach. The purpose of this article is to present the authors' experience with the inner scar umbilical reconstruction, enhancing overall results for vertical abdominoplasties. Read More

Intravenous iron sucrose versus oral iron administration for the postoperative treatment of post-bariatric abdominoplasty anaemia: an open-label, randomised, superiority trial in Brazil.

Lancet Haematol 2018 Jul;5(7):e310-e320

Division of Plastic Surgery, Graduate Program in Translational Surgery, Federal University of São Paulo-UNIFESP, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Background: Anaemia and iron deficiency are common after post-bariatric abdominoplasty, which can involve removal of large areas of skin with associated blood loss. Because the oral absorbability of iron is reduced after bariatric surgery (through reduced intake, reduction of gastric acid secretion for conjugation of iron, and separation of the iron-absorptive areas of the duodenum and jejunum), it has been hypothesised that postoperative intravenous iron supplementation might be used to treat anaemia and iron deficiency in patients submitted to post-bariatric plastic surgeries. We aimed to assess whether intravenous iron administered postoperatively in post-bariatric abdominoplasty could result in increased blood haemoglobin concentrations compared with oral iron supplementation.

Adventures and Misadventures in Plastic Surgery and Soft-Tissue Implants.

Radiographics 2017 Nov-Dec;37(7):2145-2163

From the Department of Radiology, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center, 622 W 168th St, MC-28, New York, NY 10032 (D.J.L., T.T.W., J.K.K.); and the Department of Radiology, NYU Langone Medical Center-Hospital for Joint Diseases, New York, NY (G.A.C.).

Soft-tissue augmentation and implants are increasingly seen by the radiologist as more techniques emerge for a variety of indications and locations. Some surgical and implant procedures are performed for purely cosmetic reasons in otherwise healthy patients seeking to improve their body image, and some are performed for reconstruction after cancer or other chronic illnesses. Abdominoplasty, liposuction, and autologous fat grafting can be performed for abdominal and gluteal contouring. Read More
