Plastic Surgery for Men Surges
Over the past five years, there was a 23 percent increase in liposuction and a 12 percent increase in tummy tucks among men, and a 30 percent increase in male breast reductions, according to the society.
We present a case of a 57-year-old obese female with ESRD and matured, deeply running, inadequate for cannulation arteriovenous fistula. We present a technique of lipectomy with wide resection of adipose tissue from superior and lateral surfaces of outflow vein. Postoperatively, the skin without the underlying adipose tissue collapses allowing easy cannulation of the long segment of outflow vein with two needles. Lipectomy of mature but deeply located outflow vein is a second-stage elective procedure. Wide resection of adipose tissue helps create easy to access cannulation zone in obese individuals.
Conclusion: The use of a modified nipple flap and free areola graft in transgender chest wall reconstruction for trans men allows for flexible, component construction of the male nipple-areola complex in a safe and effective manner. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.
Conclusions: Abdominoplasty is currently a reliable technique that allows the abdomen to be repaired and quality of life to be restored. Other means remain to be explored to improve the overall treatment and to move toward a maximal reduction of the risks. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.
Conclusion: Results of this study suggest that browning of subcutaneous white adipose tissue participates in adaptive tissue remodeling following grafting and contributes to adipose tissue repair.
Authors: Kim TG, Choi MK Abstract Perforator flaps are becoming increasingly common, and as primary thinning techniques are being developed, the need for secondary contouring of flaps is decreasing. However, many reconstructive flap procedures still incorporate secondary debulking to improve the functional and aesthetic outcomes. Direct excision, liposuction, tissue shaving with an arthroscopic cartilage shaver, and skin grafting are the four major methods used for secondary debulking. Direct excision is primarily applied in flaps where the skin is redundant, even though the volume is not excessive. However, due to...
CONCLUSIONS: USGL is a method that can be learned easily, is minimally invasive, seems to be safe, and requires only short operation times. PMID: 30022718 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In this study, a new protocol has been developed for the transplantation of adipose tissue-derived stem cells into the brain through cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in rat models. For this purpose, a wide range of ages (7-30 days old) of male neonates of Wistar rats was used. Moreover, human adipose tissue was obtained from a superficial layer of abdomen through liposuction surgery. The size of the inserted part of needle to access middle cranial fossa and subarachnoid space in animals with an average weight of 10-80 g was determined. In addition, to confirm the entrance of needle into the subarachnoid space, CSF was aspirated s...

Despite the favorable safety profile of liposuction, complications occur that need to be appropriately managed. In the second article in this continuing medical education series, the range of complications that may arise from liposuction are described, and the latest best practices to manage them are discussed. Specific technical strategies to prevent and minimize the risk of complications are also presented. Early recognition, accurate diagnosis, and proper clinical management can ensure an optimal outcome and patient satisfaction in individuals who are investing in fat reduction procedures.
