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

Is There a Limit? A Risk Assessment Model of Liposuction and Lipoaspirate Volume on Complications in Abdominoplasty.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 04;141(4):892-901

Chicago, Ill.; and Baltimore, Md. From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine; private practice, TLKM Plastic Surgery; the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Illinois; and the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Background: Combining liposuction and abdominoplasty is controversial because of concerns for increased complications and potential for vascular compromise of the abdominoplasty flap. Also, the lipoaspirate volume in abdominoplasty is regulated in some areas to as little as 500 ml when performed with abdominoplasty. This study measures abdominoplasty complication rates when performed with and without trunk liposuction, and evaluates the effect of lipoaspirate volume on complications. Read More

Plast Reconstr Surg 2016 Jul;138(1):38e-47e

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Instituto Carlos Chagas/Universidade Santa Úrsula, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Casa de Portugal; and Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro.

Background: Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed aesthetic surgical procedure worldwide, and one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. Classic abdominoplasty was merged with liposuction in the past decade to create a new technique-lipoabdominoplasty-that was proven to be safe and effective and that improves body contour. The authors have been using lipoabdominoplasty since 2003 with excellent outcomes; however, some details have been added to improve significant shortcomings, including the lack of treatment of the pubic area and flanks, the presence of a high-position scar and, sometimes, a bulging inferior abdomen.

Circular abdominoplasty after massive weight loss: Is it a risky procedure?

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2016 Nov 2;69(11):1497-1505. Epub 2016 Jun 2.

Division of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Geneva University Hospitals, University of Geneva, Faculty of Medicine, Geneva, Switzerland.

Introduction: Most post-bariatric patients seek body contouring procedures to correct skin excess after massive weight loss. Among these procedures, some surgeons are still wary of circular abdominoplasty, mainly because it is considered a major intervention associated with a high complication rate. The aim of this study was to assess the complication rate of circular abdominoplasty performed on patients presenting with massive weight loss, with a particular emphasis on patient selection and surgical technique.

Authors:
Dennis Hurwitz

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Apr 18;40(2):245-55. Epub 2016 Feb 18.

University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, 3109 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, 15213, USA.

Background: Whereas body contouring surgery after massive weight loss in women emphasizes sculptured adipose and broader lower torso, little attention has been devoted to accentuating the male physique.

Objective: To determine if boomerang excision pattern correction of gynecomastia with J torsoplasty combined with an abdominoplasty with oblique excisions directly over bulging flanks provide effective and safe optimizing of muscle visibility and upper torso dominance.

Methods: A description of comprehensive body contouring through an abdominoplasty and a series of obliquely oriented ellipses of the male torso is followed by review of 19 consecutive patients. Read More

Redefining abdominal anatomy: 10 key elements for restoring form in abdominoplasty.

Aesthet Surg J 2015 Nov;35(8):972-86

Dr Patronella is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX.

While traditional abdominoplasty methods can successfully achieve the objective of restoring a flat appearance, the results can be artificially board-like, lacking the subtle anatomical features of a three-dimensional abdomen, thus creating the potential for patient dissatisfaction. While often difficult to articulate, patient criticism is almost always distilled to the ubiquitous concern that the surgical abdomen lacks the natural features of an authentic, youthful abdomen. In an effort to provide a more anatomically accurate outcome and improve patient satisfaction, I have made a series of technical modifications to the abdominoplasty that I now perform. Read More

Histological differences between laser-assisted and suction-assisted lipoplasty aspirates - a comparative study.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2015 ;56(2 Suppl):797-801

Department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Microsurgery, "Prof. Dr. Agrippa Ionescu" Clinical Emergency Hospital, "Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania;

Introduction: The authors aimed to assess the histological differences between the traditional suction-assisted lipoplasty (SAL) and the more recently developed laser-assisted lipoplasty (LAL) aspirates, in a 20-case comparative study.

Patients And Methods: Between March of 2011 and March of 2012, we operated on 20 healthy female patients seeking body contouring procedures of the abdomen, flanks and outer thighs, all having good to moderate skin tone and moderate to heavy adipose deposits and no previous treatment of the interested areas. After initial aspiration of a 100 mL sample of fat tissue through the SAL technique, we applied the LAL protocol, using a Lipolite device with a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser, again sampling the aspirate for histological study.

Aesthetic Refinement of the Abdominal Donor Site after Autologous Breast Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2015 Sep;136(3):455-61

New Orleans, La.; and New York, N.Y. From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center; and the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, New York University School of Medicine.

Background: The abdominal donor site has consistently demonstrated excellent aesthetic outcomes when used for autologous breast reconstruction. However, a consistent point of dissatisfaction is the location and appearance of the abdominal donor-site scar, which can be a frequent cause of distress for the patient. The authors consider the appearance of the donor-site to be as important to the overall reconstructive effort as that of the breast, and believe it worthwhile to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

Strategies for Aesthetic Reshaping of the Postpartum Patient.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2015 Aug;136(2):245-57

New York, N.Y.; and Pittsburgh, Pa. From the Department of Plastic Surgery, Manhattan Ear, Eye, and Throat Hospital; and the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Unlabelled: Statistics reflect that pregnancies are occurring at a later age, multiple births are becoming more common, and a sizeable population--with a keen interest in nutrition, fitness, and a continued desire to retain a youthful figure--is aging. Consequently, postpartum reshaping is a priority for many women, enough so that the phrase "mommy makeover" has entered the vernacular. In this article, the senior author's practice was evaluated to explore patient goals, methods, and outcomes in reshaping the postpartum abdomen. Read More

Comparison of Limited and Full Dissection Abdominoplasty Using Laser Fluorescence Imaging to Evaluate Perfusion of the Abdominal Skin.

Authors:
Eric Swanson

Plast Reconstr Surg 2015 Jul;136(1):31e-43e

Leawood, Kan. From the Swanson Center.

Background: In an effort to reduce risk, some surgeons promote a limited dissection abdominoplasty technique. They believe that preserving musculocutaneous perforators improves blood supply to the overlying abdominal tissue and that improved vascularity avoids seromas and reduces wound healing problems. Laser fluorescence imaging is a new method that allows quantitative measurements of perfusion. Read More

Madelung disease : report of a case and review of the literature.

Acta Chir Belg 2014 Nov-Dec;114(6):417-20

Department of General, Oncologic and Video-Assisted Surgery. University "Federico II" of Naples, Italy.

Madelung disease is a rare disorder characterized by the presence of multiple, symmetric, nonencapsulated fatty accumulations diffusely involving the cheeks, the neck, the upper trunk, the shoulder girdle area, and the upper extremities. The cause of this syndrome is unknown, but it has been associated with alcoholism in 60% to 90% of -patients. The long-term lipomatous deposits are often large and cosmetically deforming, and the upper aerodigestive tract and great veins may be compressed. Read More

Femoral lipectomy increases postprandial lipemia in women.

Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 2015 Jul 12;309(1):E63-71. Epub 2015 May 12.

Department of Medicine, Division of Geriatric Medicine,

Femoral subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) appears to be cardioprotective compared with abdominal SAT, possibly through better triglyceride (TG) sequestration. We hypothesized that removal of femoral SAT would increase postprandial TG through a reduction in dietary fatty acid (FA) storage. Normal-weight (means ± SD; BMI 23. Read More
