#1
Lee L Q Pu
The clinical outcome after fat grafting for facial rejuvenation and contouring can be less optimal because lack of standardized techniques is performed by the surgeon for the procedure. In this review, the author has tried to provide a rationalized approach to fat grafting for facial rejuvenation and contouring. The preferred donor sites include low abdomen and inner thigh especially in younger patients. Fat grafts should be harvested with low negative pressure via syringe liposuction technique to ensure the integrity as well as the optimal level of cellular function...

As older people increasingly care for their body image and remain active longer, the demand for reduction mammaplasty is increasing in this population. Only a few studies of reduction mammaplasty have specifically focussed on the outcomes in elderly women. We developed a new breast reduction technique: the Liposuction-Assisted Four Pedicle-Based Breast Reduction (LAFPBR) that is especially indicated for elderly patients. The aim of this paper was to describe the LAFPBR technique and to determine whether it could be considered a safer option for elderly patients compared to the superomedial pedicle (SMP) technique...

BACKGROUND: Stromal vascular fraction (SVF) represents an attractive source of adult stem cells and progenitors, holding great promise for numerous cell therapy approaches. In 2017, it was reported that 1524 patients received autologous SVF following the enzymatic digestion of liposuction fat. The treatment was safe and effective and patients showed significant clinical improvement. In a collaborative study, we analyzed SVF obtained from 58 patients having degenerative, inflammatory, autoimmune diseases, and advanced stage cancer...

INTRODUCTION: Gynecomastia can be a significant impediment to quality of life for men who suffer from this affliction. Numerous surgical techniques have been described in the literature ranging from minimally invasive options such as liposuction to incision based reductions. The standard for the general surgeons at our institution has been subcutaneous mastectomy through a circumareolar incision, which often proved inadequate for patients with grade II or III gynecomastia. In November 2013 we adopted a new technique, the "double donut", that offers the post-operative appearance of a limited incision, with the additional benefits of mastopexy, skin reduction, and mastectomy through an enlarged incision which is not superficially evident at the completion of the procedure...

Gynaecomastia (GM) is a benign proliferation of the glandular tissue of the male breast and results from an imbalance between androgen and oestrogen. Pubertal GM is found in 50% and often resolves spontaneously without treatment. GM in adult men can be the first symptom of an underlying disease, and thorough investigation is recommended. Treatment of an underlying cause of GM is the first-line treatment. If GM persists, surgical excision with liposuction can provide excellent results and a low rate of complications...

OBJECT: To investigate the effects of nanofat injection into photoaged nude mouse skin on dermis thickness, neovascularization, and cell proliferation. METHODS: Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) and nanofat were prepared from human liposuction aspirates. The photoaged skin model was created using ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation onto BALB/c nude mice. A total of 24 mice were used in this study; 6 mice without treatment (natural aging) served as controls, while 18 mice were irradiated under the UVB lamp and treated with PBS (200 μl per injection area), ADSCs (1 × 106/200 μl ADSCs per injection area), or nanofat (200 μl per injection area) on the dorsal skin...

BACKGROUND: Adipose tissue is a source of adipose-derived stromal/stem cells for tissue engineering and reconstruction and a tissue source for fat grafts. Although liposuction is a simple procedure for the harvest of adipose tissue, the repetition of this surgical intervention can cause adverse effects to the patient and can be a limiting factor for immediate use. Cryopreservation can avoid the morbidity associated with repetitive liposuction, allowing the use of stored tissue after the initial harvest procedure...

Background: Several studies have demonstrated that progressive tension sutures (PTS) reduce seroma. Many fear that adding liposuction to abdominoplasty will increase seroma rates and avoid drainless abdominoplasty when performing concomitant liposuction. Objectives: We sought to identify whether liposuction increases seroma in PTS and non-PTS abdominoplasty. Methods: In this retrospective study, 619 patients underwent abdominoplasty between 2009 and 2017, of which 299 patients had drainless abdominoplasty with PTS and 320 had drain-based abdominoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Gigantomastia is defined as extreme hypertrophy of the female breast. It is a disabling condition that presents unique challenges to plastic surgeons. Initial breast volume is an important factor affecting the success of the reduction. Usually, it is difficult to achieve small-sized breasts, and long-term results are often unsatisfactory, resulting in complications such as "bottoming-out" deformities. METHODS: This paper presents a case series involving 40 patients (mean age 44...

Liposuction began in the 1920s when the Parisian surgeon Charles Dujarier became interested in body shaping and fat removal. Today, it is estimated that 1,453,000 liposuctions are annually performed worldwide. In Germany, 45,000 liposuctions are performed annually. The majority of liposuctions are performed as self-pay services. The aim of this article is to outline the development of liposuction, to explain the various liposuction procedures and methods, to clarify the indications for treatment, and point out the complications and pitfalls described in the literature...

Tattoo popularity continues to rise, with 3 in 10 Americans bearing at least one. Among tattoo complications, non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) has emerged as a global public health concern. NTM infections associated with tattooing of immunocompetent individuals have occurred as sporadic cases and community outbreaks. Water sources are considered the major pathogenic reservoirs. Tattoo-related inoculation has been linked to contamination of ink, either during the manufacturing process or during dilution of black ink using non-sterile water...
