Management of the Postbariatric Medial Thigh Deformity.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2016 May;137(5):1434-46

Ramsey and Hackensack, N.J.; and New York, N.Y. From Capella Plastic Surgery; Hackensack University Medical Center; and Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, North Shore Long Island Jewish Heath System.

Background: Thigh contour deformities-in particular, those of the medial thighs-are a common concern for many individuals seeking body contouring. Despite the frequency of this concern, some plastic surgeons have often been reluctant to embrace the medial thigh-lift procedure because of the risk for significant complications and relatively poor results. The authors' approach to medial thigh contouring is to address the variables outside of the medial thighs affecting the medial thighs before considering a medial thigh-lift procedure with a vertical component.

Cosmetic Body Lift.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2016 Feb;137(2):453-61

Dallas, Texas From the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Background: High-tension lateral abdominoplasty provides ideal central contouring of the abdomen, but it inadequately addresses laxity and fullness in the flank and lateral thigh. The adjunct of liposuction improves abdomen contour, but excess flank soft tissue often persists. Small case series in the literature have suggested an extended abdominoplasty to address these deficits with variable outcomes. Read More

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2016 Feb;61(1):e1-7

STROMAlab, UMR5273 CNRS/UPS/EFS, Inserm U1031, Rangueil hospital, BP 84 225, 31432 Toulouse cedex 4, France; Department of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, Rangueil hospital, Paul-Sabatier university, 31059 Toulouse cedex 9, France.

Medial thighplasty, also known as medial thigh lift, is a procedure that has been carried out for five decades. The original "Lewis" technique has undergone many changes, and thereby been rendered widely available to plastic surgeons. Given the increasingly high number of surgical reconstructions after massive weight loss, this technique is now an integral part of a surgeon's therapeutic arsenal as he strives to meet the evolving demands of patients.

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

Chirurg 2007 Apr;78(4):326-34

Abteilung für Plastische Chirurgie, Dreifaltigkeitskrankenhaus Wesseling, Bonner Strasse 84, 50389 Wesseling.

An increasing number of patients desire body contouring surgery after massive weight loss, whether from bariatric surgery or a change in lifestyle. The fact that many body regions lose their elasticity and tissue-tension has led to stepwise treatments including abdominoplasty, thigh lift, buttocks and hip lift or liposuction. However, these procedures often do not treat the reason for the deformities. Read More

Body contouring following massive weight loss resulting from bariatric surgery.

Adv Psychosom Med 2006 ;27:61-72

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Connecticut Health Center and School of Medicine, Farmington, 06030, USA.

A sharp increase in bariatric surgery has resulted in spike in the population of patients seeking body-contouring procedures. Skin and soft tissue redundancy of the trunk, buttocks, breasts, upper arms, and thighs following massive weight loss is unsightly and results in medical problems such as musculoskeletal strain from increased tissue weight, intertrigo or functional limitation with walking, maintaining adequate hygiene, bowel and bladder habits and sexual activity. These elements compound the inherent psychosocial issues related to massive weight loss. Read More

Augmentation buttock-pexy using autologous tissue following massive weight loss.

Aesthet Surg J 2005 Nov-Dec;25(6):576-81

Background: Body contouring after massive weight loss has become more popular as the rate of gastric bypasses and other bariatric surgeries increases. After bariatric surgery, the buttocks not only tend to become loose and ptotic but also lose their natural fullness.

Objective: To improve buttock fullness in postbariatric patients, a technique was developed for autologous tissue buttock augmentation during excisional contouring. Read More

Correcting the saddlebag deformity in the massive weight loss patient.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2004 Oct;114(5):1313-25

University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the Magee Woman's Hospital, Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Skin redundancy of the trunk and thigh is treated by a circumferential abdominoplasty and a lower body lift. Despite preservation and tight approximation of the subcutaneous facial system, the authors have failed to adequately correct severe saddlebag deformity and midthigh laxity in the massive weight loss patient. The technique used in the last nine of the senior author's 43 lower body lifts was modified by fully abducting each operated thigh on a side utility table, before closure in the prone position.

Belt lipectomy: procedure and outcomes.

Authors:
C J Heddens

Plast Surg Nurs 2001 ;21(4):185-9, 199; quiz 191

Department of Surgery, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, IA, USA.

Belt lipectomy includes the traditional abdominoplasty or panniculectomy with excision extended laterally around the entire trunk. This technique yields a lateral thigh and buttock lift, and when combined with liposuction is used to improve contour of the thighs. The focus of this paper is to describe current surgery for body contouring of the entire trunk and our experience at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) with 32 belt lipectomies.

Lower body lift with superficial fascial system suspension.

Authors:
T Lockwood

Plast Reconstr Surg 1993 Nov;92(6):1112-22; discussion 1123-5

Multiple body contour deformities of the trunk and thighs are commonly treated in separate stages to limit postoperative complications and disability. Recent advances in the surgical design of the medial thigh lift and the lateral thigh/buttock lift along with an understanding of the functional anatomy of the superficial fascial system have significantly improved results and decreased complications of trunk/thigh lifts. The enhanced safety of current trunk/thigh lifts has allowed new combinations to treat multiple body contour deformities in a single stage. Read More

Body contouring.

Authors:
J R Lewis

South Med J 1980 Aug;73(8):1006-11

The prospect of surgical body contouring is a rather recent innovation for the surgeon. For underdeveloped or atrophic breasts, augmentation mammaplasty is reasonably successful. For ptosis and/or hypertrophy of the breast, reduction and elevation on the chest wall by making the breasts more conical and more projecting is a common procedure for the plastic surgeon. Read More
