Revision Abdominoplasty with Truncal Liposculpting: A 10-Year Experience.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Feb 13;43(1):155-162. Epub 2018 Jun 13.

Department of Plastic Surgery, LH Clinic, Rua Xavier da Silveira 45/206, 22061-010, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Introduction: Abdominoplasty is one of the most popular body-contouring procedures. Despite its popularity, classic abdominoplasty is still associated with a significant rate of complaints from patients such as: fullness of flanks and epigastric areas, lack of a posterior lumbar curve, hanging skin over the incision line, and visible scars over the flanks and beyond underwear or swimming suit coverage. This study reviews the authors' experience in redo abdominoplasty when the patient is not or partially satisfied with the primary procedure. Read More

Breast and Body Contouring for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Individuals.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Jul;45(3):333-342

Private Practice, The Gender Confirmation Center of San Francisco, Suite 1010, 450 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA. Electronic address:

Even after long-term hormone therapy, many transwomen still have challenges in the size and shape of their breasts and also of the contour of their trunk areas. Though distinct anthropomorphic differences in skeletal structure exist and pose limitations to an ideal result, considerable improvements can be obtained through breast augmentation and trunk feminization. There are challenges that are unique to the transfeminine chest and trunk, and important considerations for the priority of fat grafting to the buttocks and hips when grafted fat is in short supply.

Faculty of Medicine, University San Martin de Porres, Alameda del corregidor 1531 avenue, Los Sirius Urbanization, Las Viñas, La Molina, Lima 12, Peru. Electronic address:

Submuscular gluteal augmentation is a very valid plane for buttocks implantation, even more so in North America, where surgeons can only use silicone elastomer implants. Irrespective of how soft elastomer implants are made, they are much firmer than the silicone gel implants that can be used in other countries. A deeper plane with more soft tissue coverage provides more natural results, as long as the anatomic boundaries are respected. Read More

Critical Differences between Microscopic (MIFE) and Macroscopic (MAFE) Fat Embolism during Liposuction and Gluteal Lipoinjection.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 04;141(4):880-890

Zapopan, Jalisco, and Mérida, Yucatán, México; and Bucaramanga, Colombia From Innovare Cirugía Plástica Especializada, the Divisions of Plastic Surgery and Internal Medicine, Jalisco Institute of Reconstructive Surgery "Dr. José Guerrerosantos"; the Jalisco College of Plastic, Esthetic and Reconstructive Surgery; private practice; and Clínica "El Pinar."

Background: Liposuction and gluteal lipoinjection are two of the most frequent surgical procedures in body contouring surgery, and two of the most important complications are microscopic (MIFE) and macroscopic (MAFE) fat embolism. Despite a high index of morbidity and mortality, few reports exist about these complications, and although they have the same causal agent, their etiopathogenesis, clinical evolution, treatment, prognosis, and prevention are totally different. Therefore, the authors performed a comprehensive review of the literature to exhaustively analyze both pathologic conditions and present the differences between them. Read More

Circumferential body contouring: the lower body lift.

Clin Plast Surg 2014 Oct;41(4):775-88

Department for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dreifaltigkeits-Hospital, Bonner Strasse 84, Wesseling 50389, Germany.

A 2-position circumferential approach for body contouring of the lower trunk is presented. Mostly indicated in patients after massive weight loss, this approach allows the simultaneous skin resection and reshaping in the abdominal, flank, lateral thigh, back, and gluteal region in the same operation, with only one position change during surgery. Reconstruction of the abdominal wall and gluteal restoration allow volume and shape enhancement with autologous tissue transpositioning. Read More

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of California Irvine, 200 S Manchester Avenue, Suite 650, Orange, CA 92868, USA.

The primary goal of belt lipectomy surgery is to improve the contour of the inferior truncal circumferential unit and to place the resultant scar in natural junctions. Excessive intra-abdominal content is a contraindication for belt lipectomy. The higher the presenting patient's body mass index (BMI), the higher the risk of postoperative complications and the less impressive the results. Read More

Liposuction and lipofilling for treatment of symptomatic silicone toxicosis of the gluteal region.

Aesthet Surg J 2014 May 27;34(4):571-7. Epub 2014 Mar 27.

DeWitt Daughtry Family Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Florida.

Background: Silicone injection can cause numerous posttreatment complications-including debilitating pain, cellulitis, abscesses, overlying skin compromise, and siliconomas distorting overlying tissues-that can be difficult to manage.

Objectives: The authors evaluate liposuction as a treatment for patients experiencing complications from silicone injections to the gluteal region, to both preserve aesthetic appearance and minimize further risk of complication from these procedures.

Methods: Eight patients (7 women and 1 man) who presented consecutively to us between 2010 and 2013 with complications from silicone injections to their gluteal region were enrolled in this study. Read More

Safety and efficacy of outpatient lower body lifting.

Ann Plast Surg 2013 May;70(5):493-6

Section of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Michigan Health Systems, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Background: The lower body lift (LBL) is a comprehensive body contouring procedure done after massive weight loss. Because of the magnitude of the operation and demands of subsequent care, it has traditionally been viewed as an inpatient procedure. However, it is believed that with surgical experience combined with fine tuning of perioperative and postoperative care, lower body lifting is safe as an outpatient in properly selected patients.

Anatomical basis of the lateral superior gluteal artery perforator (LSGAP) flap and role in bilateral breast reconstruction.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2013 Jun 20;66(6):756-62. Epub 2013 Mar 20.

Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Department, University Hospital of Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France.

Introduction: Deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap is one of the gold standards in autologous breast reconstruction. When the abdominal tissue is not available, the superior gluteal artery perforator (SGAP) is often a second option with its drawback, especially the donor-site deformity. Reports have highlighted that a higher and more lateral SGAP flap can be harvested to overcome several drawbacks of the classical SGAP, allowing in the same procedure a body-contouring procedure.

Treatment algorithm for abdomino-torso body contouring in massive weight-loss patients in the presence of scars--a comprehensive review.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2011 May 14;64(5):563-72. Epub 2010 Aug 14.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Medical University Innsbruck, Anichstrasse 35, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

Background: Patients requiring surgical skin excision after massive weight loss are challenging and require a structured approach. The characteristic abdominal deformity includes a draping apron of panniculus, often extending to the glutaeal, back and thigh areas. Occasionally, these deformities are associated with previous surgical scars in the upper abdomen resulting from open gastric bypass surgery or from other procedures, such as open cholecystectomy.

Multiple procedures and staging in the massive weight loss population.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2010 Feb;125(2):691-8

Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pa, USA.

Background: Unlike traditional plastic surgery patients who present with a specific anatomical complaint, massive weight loss patients often have multiple regions of concern. No single procedure can address the whole-body deformities associated with massive weight loss. The authors sought to quantify their clinical experience to provide evidence-based analysis of procedural combination in body contouring. Read More

Composite body contouring.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2009 Jul 12;33(4):616-24. Epub 2009 May 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, LH Clinic, Rua Xavier da Silveira 45/206, Rio de Janeiro, 22061-010, Brazil.

Background: Aesthetic surgery of the thoracoabdominal region is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in plastic surgery. The combination of circumferential liposuction, autologous fat grafting of the buttocks and/or lower limbs, and the modified transverse abdominoplasty as an adjuvant procedure all done in a single surgical procedure is not very common. The authors present a prospective study of the surgical technique of composite body contouring, emphasizing the low rate of complications and the high overall patient satisfaction. Read More

Lipoabdominoplasty: revisiting the superior pull-down abdominal flap and new approaches.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2009 May 19;33(3):366-76. Epub 2009 Mar 19.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Pontificia Universidade Catolica, Rio Grande Sul - PUCRS, Rio Grande Sul, Brazil.

Abdominoplasty is a very common procedure, especially for patients with abdominal laxness, striaes, and muscle rectus diastases. With the advent of liposuction 28 years ago, we can improve body contouring by treating lipodystrophies in the epigastric, flank, trochanteric, and buttocks areas. The procedure combining abdominoplasty and liposuction is called lipoabdominoplasty. Read More

Abteilung Plastische und Handchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Freiburg [nl]Erich-Lexer-Klinik, Freiburg, Interdisziplinäres Adipositas-Zentrum des Universitätsklinikums Freiburg, Germany.

With the advent of bariatric surgery, body contouring has grown to a new speciality in plastic surgery. Following massive weight loss, patients generally have skin redundancy on the trunk, buttocks, breast, upper arms, thighs and face, leading to a poor quality of life and social acceptance. This condition motivates many patients to consult a plastic surgeon to address these problems. Read More
