Standardized reliable medical photographic documentation should be made by every plastic surgeon for valid comparisons of preoperative and post-operative illustrations. However, photographic documentation in aesthetic surgery has also an important medico-legal impact as if not performed accurately it can result in severe legal ramifications. Therefore, we evaluated and redefined the existing photographic standards for abdominal contouring procedures and abdominoplasty/lipectomy further, to achieve consistent detailed photographs without any corresponding distortion or distraction...

BACKGROUND: Over 30% of the US population is obese and nearly 300,000 patients undergo bariatric surgery every year. Patients seeking body-contouring procedures face a staggering rate of surgical complications caused by obesity-associated systemic and local factors impairing wound healing. Closed incision negative-pressure therapy (ciNPT) systems could improve surgical outcomes in these patients. Here, we tested this hypothesis in a retrospective case-control series of post-bariatric patients undergoing an abdominoplasty...

INTRODUCTION: Mesenchymal stem cells are already used in numerous areas of medicine. In the field of plastic surgery, the main focus of recent research has been to utilise adipose-derived stromal cells (ASCs), mainly harvested via liposuction. The ability to release regenerative cytokines is supposed to be the key mechanism for the therapeutic efficacy of ASCs. There are currently a variety of methods and devices in clinical use for harvesting lipoaspirate and consequently ASCs. For most of these devices, the effect on the regenerative cytokine profile of ASCs is unknown...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies revealed that patients preferred plastic surgeons over cosmetic surgeons for surgical procedures, but few knew that any physician with a medical degree was legally qualified to perform cosmetic surgery. Results also indicated that a primary consideration for patients in selecting a surgeon was board certification. Although patient preferences concerning aesthetic surgery have previously been surveyed, no study examined a consumer's ability delineate between specialties based on Web sites...

BACKGROUND: Color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) has not been routinely used in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Barriers to use have included large, cumbersome equipment, low-definition images, cost, and availability. In addition, programs in plastic surgery have not included training with ultrasound (US); thus, many current-day practitioners are unfamiliar with and reluctant to use this technology. Nevertheless, recent studies have demonstrated the utility of US in surgical planning. With the miniaturization, clearer imaging, and decreased costs of the latest US technology, previous barriers to use have largely been eliminated...

The giant omphalocele (GO) represents a challenge for the pediatric surgeon in its management and wall abdominoplasty. Here, we report the outcome of a case in which a GO in a newborn patient was repaired with an implant derived from decellularized bovine pericardium crosslinked with oligourethane. The implantation time was extended for 6 months. This was then followed up by the retrieval of the implant and the subsequent reconstruction in a second surgical time by the closure of the abdominal wall fascia...

BACKGROUND: Nowadays obesity is a common problem as it leads to abdominal deformation and people's dissatisfaction of their own body. This study has explored using a new surgical technique based on a different incision to reform the flank skin laxity and dog ear plus aggressive liposuction on women with abdominal deformities. METHODS: From May 2014 to February 2016 , 25 women were chosen for this study. All women had a body mass index more than 28 kg/m2 , flank folding, bulging and excess fat, abdominal and flank skin sagging and laxity...

Yong Woo Lee, Tae Hwan Park
BACKGROUND: Along with advances in thread lift techniques and materials, ancillary procedures such as fat grafting, liposuction, or filler injections have been performed simultaneously. Some surgeons think that these ancillary procedures might affect the aesthetic outcomes of thread lifting possibly due to inadvertent injury to threads or loosening of soft tissue via passing the cannula in the surgical plane of the thread lifts. The purpose of the current study is to determine the effect of such ancillary procedures on the outcome of thread lifts in the human and cadaveric setting...

Abdominoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures. Patients who undergo abdominoplasties with abdominal scars are at an increased risk for skin necrosis and wound breakdown. To prevent further disruption of vascularity, the dissection and mobilization is often limited resulting in a suboptimal esthetic result. The periumbilical perforator-sparing technique allows for vascular preservation and adequate mobilization to produce excellent esthetic results in patients with abdominal scars.

BACKGROUND: Medical tourism is a growing, multi-billion dollar industry fueled by improvements in the global transportation infrastructure. The authors studied patients living in the United States who travel to other countries for plastic surgical procedures and returned to have their complications treated in the authors' center. METHODS: A retrospective patient evaluation was performed. Patients who had presented to an urban tertiary academic hospital plastic surgery service with complications or complaints associated with plastic surgery performed in a developing country were studied...

BACKGROUND: It is reasonable that deflated tissue in massive weight loss patients may demand not only lifting but also some extent of central body tightening, by the fleur-de-lis procedure. Although achieving nice contouring results, poor visible scars, including umbilical complications, have restricted the indications for the anterior vertical approach. The purpose of this article is to present the authors' experience with the inner scar umbilical reconstruction, reflecting overall results in vertical abdominoplasties...

Background: The recently increased minimum aesthetic surgery requirements set by the Plastic Surgery Residency Review Committee of the ACGME highlight the importance of aesthetic surgery training for plastic surgery residents. Participation in resident aesthetic surgery clinics has become an important tool to achieve this goal. Yet, there is little literature on the current structure of these clinics. Objectives: The authors sought to evaluate current practices of aesthetic resident-run clinics in the United States...

The umbilicus is an important aesthetic landmark of the abdomen. It possesses a dual blood supply that allows it to survive either on its stalk if the skin surrounding the umbilicus is incised, or through the surrounding subdermal circulation if the stalk is transected. This is an important concept to consider in order to avoid umbilical ischemia and necrosis during abdominoplasty, especially if there is any past surgical history suggesting alteration to its blood supply. This case study depicts this importance and the importance of the use of delay in order to improve perfusion to the umbilicus prior to secondary abdominoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric patients are often candidates for plastic surgery. However, the rate of postbariatric procedures is not known. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyze the rate of plastic surgery, and factors related to surgery, in bariatric patients. SETTING: University hospital, France. METHODS: This was a cohort study based on administrative data. All adult patients who received bariatric surgery in France between 2007 and 2013 were included to estimate the rate of plastic surgery and related predictive factors...

Abdominal scars are no longer a contra-indication for abdominal perforator flap harvesting. Few research data exists about the regeneration potential of the abdominal wall's perforator system. Therefore, previous abdominoplasty with umbilical transposition is an absolute contra-indication for a DIEaP-flap (deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap). A 50-year-old patient required a breast reconstruction of the right breast, 10 years after an abdominoplasty with undermining of the superior abdomen and umbilical transposition...
