Autologous fat grafting: Harvesting techniques.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 13;36:212-218. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Departamento de Biomedicina - Unidade de Bioquímica, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade do Porto, Porto, Portugal.

Autologous fat grafting is widely used for soft-tissue augmentation and replacement in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery providing a biocompatible, natural and inexpensive method. Multiple approaches have been developed in the past years, varying in the location of adipose tissue donor-sites, use of wetting solutions, harvesting, processing and placing techniques. Despite many advances in this subject, the lack of standardization in the protocols and the unpredictability of the resorption of the grafted tissue pose a significant limitation for graft retention and subsequent filling.

Liposuction Assisted Abdominoplasty: An Enhanced Abdominoplasty Technique.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Sep 14;6(9):e1940. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Department of Plastic Surgery, University Medical Centre Groningen, Groningen and Bergmann Clinics, Zwolle and Heerenveen, The Netherlands.

Background: Combining liposuction with abdominoplasties was considered risky during the 1980s and 1990s due to reports of increased complications rates and the belief that liposuction posed a danger to flap circulation. However, the corresponding author's intraoperative observations at that time, that liposuction preserved all but the smallest blood vessels, negated the prevailing opinions that liposuction increased the risk to flap circulation, and in October 1996, liposuction assisted abdominoplasty (LAA) was first performed. Thereafter, LAA was honed to become a lipoabdominoplasty technique-not merely a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty, a technique that utilizes liposuction as a dissection tool-hydro- and lipo-dissection, to dissect free and separate the abdominal flap from the deep fascia.

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

Short Scar Neck Lift: Neck Lift Using a Submental Incision Only.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Oct;45(4):585-600

Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery, 450 Sutter Street Suite 2222, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA.

For a subset of patients poor neck contour exists as a largely isolated problem and can be treated with a short scar neck lift procedure whereby no skin is removed. The procedure is performed through a submental incision without any removal of skin and relies on modification of deep-layer structures to improve neck contour. "Excess" skin is allowed to redistribute itself over the increased neck surface area created when deep-layer maneuvers are performed, neck contour is improved, and the cervicomental angle deepened.

Neck Lift: Defining Anatomic Problems and Choosing Appropriate Treatment Strategies.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Oct;45(4):455-484

Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery, 450 Sutter Street Suite 2222, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA.

Success or failure in treating the neck lies in the diagnosis of underlying problems and the application of a logical surgical plan. Although it is a commonly advocated practice, it is not enough to perform submental liposuction and tighten the skin in most patients, as such an approach ignores a number of anatomic problems present in many patients seeking neck improvement. Removing subcutaneous fat and tightening skin over these problems does not correct them, and the presence or absence of each must be looked for to create and apply an appropriate surgical plan.
