GOAL OF THE STUDY: The umbilicus has a major role in the aesthetics of the anterior abdominal wall. Many publications deal with abdominal dermolipectomies but few focus on umbilicoplasty. However, these are essential in assessing the aesthetic result. Umbilicoplasty in "aile de mouette" used in our service is reliable and easily reproducible. In this article, we evaluate the satisfaction of patients with abdominal dermolipectomy with this technique of transposition. MATERIALS AND METHOD: In the plastic surgery department of the Saint-Louis Hospital in Paris, we carried out a retrospective study of patients undergoing abdominal dermolipectomy with transposition of the umbilicus, between 1 January 2012 and 31 December 2012...

REVIEW
Hina Panchal, Evan Matros
Postmastectomy immediate breast reconstruction in the U.S. continues to experience an upward trend owing to heightened awareness, innovations in reconstructive technique, growing evidence of improved patient-reported outcomes, and shifts in mastectomy patterns. Women with unilateral breast cancer are increasingly electing to undergo contralateral prophylactic mastectomy, instead of unilateral mastectomy or opting for breast conservation. The ascent in prophylactic surgeries correlates temporally to a shift toward prosthetic methods of reconstruction as the most common technique...

Farooq Shahzad, Babak J Mehrara
Fat grafting has emerged as an important tool in the armamentarium of plastic surgeons. Its applications in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery continue to expand. However, its limitations (such as inconsistent survival) remain problematic. Recent research efforts have focused on tacking these issues with the use of platelet rich plasma, hypoxic preconditioning, hyperbaric oxygen, and the tissue engineering of scaffolds. In the future, as these laboratory discoveries are translated to clinical application, the beneficial uses of fat grafting will continue to increase...

Introduction: Bilateral breast reduction surgery is the surgical treatment of bilateral breast hypertrophy. This is one of the most common breast surgery requested by women, and performed by plastic surgeons. The reasons that patients want this surgery are to re-size sagging breasts aesthetically, and to get rid of somatic symptoms such as shoulder, chest, back, and neck pain. We believe that the objective positive effects of breast reduction surgery exist beside aesthetic. In our study, our aim is to elicit positive effects of surgery on lungs, if there are, by making pulmonary function test and carbon monoxide diffusion test before surgery and after 6 months of surgery...

Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt placement is among the most common surgical procedures undertaken by neurosurgeons. Complications arising from the thoracic portion of the shunt are relatively rare in comparison with those of the intraventricular and peritoneal portions. Disruption of primary breast development following VP shunt placement has not previously been reported. The authors describe the case of a 15-year-old girl referred to the plastic surgery department with a significant right breast deformity and associated asymmetry following VP shunt placement performed during the neonatal period...

Oncoplastic surgery is an evolving field in breast surgery combining the strengths of breast surgical oncology with plastic surgery. It provides the surgeon the ability to excise large areas of the breast in the oncologic resection without compromising, and possibly improving, its aesthetic appearance. The purpose of this review is to provide a guide that could help a breast surgeon excise breast cancer in most areas of the breast using 5 oncoplastic techniques. These techniques would be used depending primarily on the location of the cancer in the breast and also on the size of the tumor...

Background Over the last few decades plastic and aesthetic surgery careers aimed at holding a chair as head of the department or clinical director. The current career trend shows a drain of academic teaching staff to peripheral hospitals with sole clinical focus. The achievement of a doctorate in German university medicine or obtaining the venia legendi appears to be the termination of academic careers. This brain drain with loss of expertise and scientific output imposes a problem to future progress in clinical and scientific plastic and reconstructive surgery...
