Vertical Mammaplasty with Retromammary En Bloc Breast Suspension.

Ahmet Seyhan

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2021 02 13;45(1):78-91. Epub 2020 Jul 13.

, İzmir, 35220, Turkey.

Background: In a vertical mammaplasty, various types of pedicles have been proposed for the nipple-areola transposition. The preparation of any type of nipple-areola flap necessitates disconnecting the nipple-areola from the breast gland, except for the pedicle bearing glandular part. These flap-dependent techniques not only impair the functions of the breast but also do not provide enough fullness to the upper pole. Read More

Correction of High-Grade Pseudogynecomastia After Massive Weight Loss: Modified Inferior Dermoglandular Pedicled Transverse Scar Reduction.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 04 26;44(2):435-441. Epub 2019 Aug 26.

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Clinic, Istanbul Aydin University Medical Park Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Introduction: Whereas body-contouring surgery after massive weight loss in women receives much attention, little attention has been devoted to accentuating the male physique. Male patients after massive weight loss often suffer from redundant skin and soft tissue in the anterior and lateral chest region, causing various deformities of pseudogynecomastia. The authors present their approach to high-grade pseudogynecomastia correction with preservation of the NAC on an inferior dermoglandular pedicle with transverse scar only closure and without any meaningful liposuction.

Application of the Lalonde (horizontal-only scar) breast reduction technique for correction of gynaecomastia in dark skinned patients.

Gland Surg 2019 Jun;8(3):287-293

Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Cambridge, UK.

Surgical correction of gynaecomastia correction sometimes necessitates skin reduction in addition to resection of glandular tissue and liposuction of the fat deposits. Many skin reduction techniques have been described but all suffer from very noticeable and often poor scars that can manifest as hypertrophic or keloid scars in patients with dark skin. Three large gynaecomastia patients undergoing a modification of the Lalonde "no vertical scar" breast reduction technique designed to reduce the extent of scarring were reviewed. Read More

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

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

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
