Conclusions: Panniculectomy is generally safe to perform, with major postoperative complication rate of 22.3% in our series. Increase in BMI and active smoking were significantly associated with having a major complication. Higher BMI, concomitant hernia repair, and a history of venous thromboembolism were associated with length of hospital stay of 3 days or more.

A ventral hernia can be a life-threatening emergency and timely surgical repair is vital to ensure better clinical outcomes and reduced healthcare costs. These can be improved with the use of effective surgical adjuncts, such as a biological meshes, diastasis repair, component release and panniculectomy/abdominoplasty. However, these adjuncts are often considered elective procedures which poses challenges when seeking insurance coverage.

ConclusionFinally, it may help to reduce the incidence of recurrence by enabling removal of a large pannus and the resultant weight on the anterior abdominal wall, though this has not been proven. Also it improves the quality of life and obtains patients satisfaction with this approach.

ConclusionRepair of rectus diastasis with a narrow well-fixed mesh and concurrent skin abdominoplasty is a well-tolerated and reliable procedure with low recurrence and low SSO in the manner described. It is a procedure that works for both female and male pattern rectus diastasis, and has become our procedure of choice for moderate and severe rectus diastasis.

We describe a mesh abdominoplasty technique, and we hypothesize that the complication rate using mesh is greater than the complication rate of suture plication. Methods: Inclusion criteria for mesh abdominoplasty were patients who (1) had retrorectus planar mesh for repair of rectus diastasis, (2) did not have concurrent ventral hernia, and (3) underwent skin tailoring. Patients who underwent rectus plication with suture, and met criteria 2 and 3 above were included in a sample of consecutive standard abdominoplasty patients. The primary endpoint was surgical site occurrence at any time after surgery, as determined ...

Summary: Abdominoplasty is among the most commonly performed aesthetic operations and is frequently combined with rectus abdominis musculoaponeurotic plication of rectus diastasis and repair of umbilical and ventral hernias. The authors present a spare parts technique to assist in reinforcement of both rectus diastasis plication and hernia repair during abdominoplasty operations using an autodermis onlay reinforcement graft. The graft is harvested from the excess abdominal pannus normally discarded during abdominoplasty and is inset on tension between the bilateral semilunar lines and plicated along a concave “co...

Authors: Jessen ML, Öberg S, Rosenberg J Abstract Rectus diastasis is characterized by widening and laxity of the linea alba, causing the abdominal content to bulge. Rectus diastasis is treated either conservatively with physiotherapy, or surgically, surgical treatment showing especially convincing results. The primary aim of this study was to describe surgical techniques used to correct abdominal rectus diastasis. Secondary, we wished to assess postoperative complications in relation to the various techniques. A systematic scoping review was conducted and reported according to the PRISMA-ScR statement.

The objective of this article is to describe the technique and establish the necessary safety criteria to obtain good results in patients with minimal skin laxity, with moderate fat tissue distribution, with musculofascial diastasis, with ventral hernias, and who do not need or do not accept a visible surgical scar.
