Lower Body Lift After Bariatric Surgery: 323 Consecutive Cases Over 10-Year Experience.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 04 20;44(2):421-432. Epub 2019 Nov 20.

Plastic Surgery Unit, Andaraì Federal Hospital, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Background: Lower body lift is a widespread procedure for massive weight loss patients aimed to improve the contour of the lower trunk, gluteal region and proximal lower extremity. The data about complications are confusing, and there is a lack of uniform studies for massive weight loss patients. A simple formula to carry out a reliable procedure in a short time with a low complication rate should be advocated. Read More

Inguinocrural dermolipectomy A retrospective study.

Ann Ital Chir 2019 ;90:350-356

Introduction And Aim: Inguinocrural dermolipectomy is a constantly increasing surgical procedure, especially for postbariatric patients with significant weight loss. The "crescent medial" and "vertical medial" thigh lifting techniques (CMTL/VMTL) are the most effective type of surgery to treat laxity and excess of skin and soft tissues in the medial region of the thighs Aim of this article is to suggest which patients may be eligible for a surgical thighplasty with an acceptable risk of postoperative complications.

Materials And Methods: We performed a retrospective study with 30 female patients who underwent a surgical thighplasty between 2018 and 2008. Read More

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.

Mesenteric visceral lipectomy using tissue liquefaction technology reverses insulin resistance and causes weight loss in baboons.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2018 06 9;14(6):833-841. Epub 2018 Mar 9.

Department of Genetics and Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC), Texas Biomedical Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas. Electronic address:

Background: Visceral obesity is associated with diabetogenic and atherogenic abnormalities, including insulin resistance and increased risk for cardiometabolic diseases and mortality. Rodent lipectomy studies have demonstrated a causal link between visceral fat and insulin resistance, yet human omentectomy studies have failed to replicate this metabolic benefit, perhaps owing to the inability to target the mesentery.

Objectives: We aimed to demonstrate that safe and effective removal of mesenteric fat could be achieved in obese insulin-resistant baboons using tissue liquefaction technology. Read More

Intermittent hypoxia-induced insulin resistance is associated with alterations in white fat distribution.

Sci Rep 2017 09 11;7(1):11180. Epub 2017 Sep 11.

Université Grenoble Alpes, Laboratoire HP2, Grenoble, F-38042, France.

Sleep apnea syndrome is characterized by repetitive upper airway collapses during night leading to intermittent hypoxia (IH). The latter is responsible for metabolic disturbances that rely, at least in part, on abdominal white fat inflammation. Besides qualitative alterations, we hypothesized that IH could also modify body fat distribution, a key factor for metabolic complications. Read More

Microsurgery 2018 May 26;38(4):413-418. Epub 2017 Aug 26.

Institute for Reconstructive Surgery, Houston Methodist Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Introduction: Suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) has been considered a relative contraindication for autologous breast reconstruction due to reservations about size and integrity of perforator vessels. Such patients are often not considered ideal candidates for breast reconstruction utilizing deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) and superficial inferior epigastric artery (SIEA) flaps. The aim of this article is to describe our experience with these flaps after SAL. Read More
