Liposuction Gives Complete Reduction of Arm Lymphedema following Breast Cancer Treatment-A 5-year Prospective Study in 105 Patients without Recurrence.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Aug 16;6(8):e1912. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden.

Background: Arm lymphedema is a well-recognized complication after breast cancer surgery that negatively impacts patients' quality of life, both physiologically and psychologically. Lymph stasis and inflammation result in excess formation of adipose tissue, which makes removal of the deposited subcutaneous fat necessary to eliminate the excess volume. Liposuction, combined with postoperative controlled compression therapy (CCT), is the only treatment that gives complete reduction of the excess volume. Read More

Liposuction-assisted four pedicle-based breast reduction (LAFPBR): A new safer technique of breast reduction for elderly patients.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2018 05 31;71(5):691-698. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Maxillofacial Surgery, Henri Mondor Hospital, 51 avenue du Maréchal de Lattre de Tassigny, Créteil 94010, France.

As older people increasingly care for their body image and remain active longer, the demand for reduction mammaplasty is increasing in this population. Only a few studies of reduction mammaplasty have specifically focussed on the outcomes in elderly women. We developed a new breast reduction technique: the Liposuction-Assisted Four Pedicle-Based Breast Reduction (LAFPBR) that is especially indicated for elderly patients. Read More

Gynecomastia: Simultaneous Subcutaneous Mastectomy and Areolar Reduction with Minimal Inconspicuous Scarring.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2015 Dec 7;39(6):916-21. Epub 2015 Oct 7.

Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Unlabelled: Acceptable scar positioning on the anterior male chest is very limited. In Gynecomastia surgery, an obvious areolar incision is the most sensitive indicator of a previous operation; a less apparent scar is indispensable for the patient's psychological satisfaction. Whenever only areolar diameter reduction is required, the circumareolar incision must be performed in a position leaving the least conspicuous scar. Read More

Cosmetic surgery volume and its correlation with the major US stock market indices.

Aesthet Surg J 2010 May-Jun;30(3):470-5

Department of Plastic Surgery, The Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

Background: As a consumer-driven industry, cosmetic plastic surgery is subject to ebbs and flows as the economy changes. There have been many predictions about the short, intermediate, and long-term impact on cosmetic plastic surgery as a result of difficulties in the current economic climate, but no studies published in the literature have quantified a direct correlation.

Objectives: The authors investigate a possible correlation between cosmetic surgery volume and the economic trends of the three major US stock market indices. Read More

Superior pedicle breast reduction techniques increase the risk of postoperative drainage.

Ann Plast Surg 2008 Apr;60(4):367-71

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Epidemiology Coordinating and Research Centre, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Background: The most frequent complication after bilateral reduction mammoplasty (BRM) is the formation of seromas and hematomas. If a group of patients who are at increased risk of seroma and hematoma are identified, the use of drains in this group would be beneficial. We hypothesized that superior pedicle reductions would have increased postoperative drainage. Read More

Abdominoplasty can be performed successfully as an outpatient procedure with minimal morbidity.

Ann Plast Surg 2008 Apr;60(4):349-52

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Puerto Rico, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Since abdominoplasty has been shown to have a positive impact on patient's self-image and quality of life, it is no surprise that the annual number of these procedures performed has continued to increase. Historically, because of concerns with patient safety the majority of these operations have been performed on an inpatient basis. The breast reduction experience has shown that with proper patient selection and operative technique, this procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis without compromising safety. Read More

Safe total corporal contouring with large-volume liposuction for the obese patient.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2006 Sep-Oct;30(5):574-88

Nanavati Hospital and Vasudhan Arjin Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, C-212, Lancelot, S.V. Road, Borivali West, Mumbai 400 092, India.

The advent of the tumescent technique in 1987 allowed for safe total corporal contouring as an ambulatory, single-session megaliposuction with the patient under regional anesthesia supplemented by local anesthetic only in selected areas. Safety and aesthetic issues define large-volume liposuction as having a 5,000-ml aspirate, mega-volume liposuction as having an 8,000-ml aspirate, and giganto-volume liposuction as having an aspirate of 12,000 ml or more. Clinically, a total volume comprising 5,000 ml of fat and wetting solution aspirated during the procedure qualifies for megaliposuction/large-volume liposuction. Read More

Periareolar approach for the correction of congenital symmastia.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2004 Mar;113(3):992-4

Plastic Surgery Section, Darnall U.S. Army Hospital, Fort Hood, Texas 76544-5063, USA.

This report elucidates the continued and relatively rare problem of congenital symmastia and its surgical repair without concomitant bilateral breast reduction. This case highlights the use of suction-assisted lipectomy techniques to address the excess fat in the presternal web and a periareolar approach for access to the intermammary space. The periareolar incision allows for the use of a concealed approach and the avoidance of a central scar that could result in hypertrophy or keloid formation, especially in this patient who is more prone to hypertrophic scarring.

Breast reduction with ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2003 Jul;112(1):71-82

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Ancona University School of Medicine, Italy.

Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty for reduction of fatty breasts and fixation has been found to be a safe technique with promising aesthetic results when it is applied in selected patients and performed by a surgeon with expertise with ultrasound-assisted body contouring. From 1995 to 2000, 120 patients were treated with ultrasound energy to decrease the fatty component of the breast tissue and at the same time to lift the breast mound. Each patient was evaluated preoperatively with mammograms for correct assessment of the nature and consistency of the breast tissue. Read More

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2001 Mar-Apr;25(2):85-8

Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery, University of Freiburg, Hugstetterstrasse 55, 79106 Freiburg, Germany.

As the use of ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) increases, the technique grows more popular in breast surgery, especially in reduction mammaplasty and treatment of gynecomastia. The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of UAL on breast tissue using histological examinations, and analyze the effect of this technique on a cellular level. Biopsies from 10 patients undergoing ultrasonically assisted lipectomy prior to classic reduction mammaplasty were taken from the treated areas of the breast. Read More

Authors:
T J Lee J S Eom

Aesthetic Plast Surg 1999 Sep-Oct;23(5):331-6

Department of Plastic Surgery, Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

The critical points which should not be overlooked when performing reduction mammaplasty are to minimize scar on the breast and to ensure a sufficient blood supply for the viability of the nipple-areolar complex. Periareolar reduction mammaplasty has been widely used because it left only one scar around the areola. However, with the typical periareolar reduction mammaplasty technique, it is difficult to remove a large amount of breast tissue and mobilize the remaining breast tissue. Read More

Effect of syringe-assisted liposuction on activation of cascade systems and circulating cells when using the superwet or tumescent technique.

Ann Plast Surg 1995 Sep;35(3):242-8

Department of Plastic Surgery, Rikshospitalet, Norway.

Although liposuction is considered to be a relatively safe procedure, several deaths and nonfatal serious complications such as sepsis, toxic shock syndrome, thromboembolic disease, fat emboli, and adult respiratory distress syndrome have been reported. In the present study, we have investigated a wide variety of components belonging to the coagulation, fibrinolytic, plasma kallikrein-kinin, and complement systems in 22 patients undergoing syringe-assisted liposuction using the superwet or tumescent technique. In spite of a relatively high mean aspirate volume (2,648 ml), only small changes over time well within the normal range were found for the different parameters. Read More

Scand J Plast Reconstr Surg Hand Surg 1990 ;24(1):61-5

Department of Plastic Surgery, University Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden.

A retrospective study has been carried out on 149 patients with hypertrophic breasts operated on during the period 1977 to 1979 using Skoog's technique of reduction mammaplasty. Both physical and psychological symptoms were investigated as well as the follow-up results of the operation as a whole, as judged by the patient herself. The observation time was 5 years and the average age of the patients was 39 years. Read More
