Effects of diep flap-based breast reconstruction on respiratory function
Breast reconstruction (BR) is an essential part of breast cancer treatment, and DIEP flap is considered the gold standard reconstruction technique, which uses a free abdominal flap. Concerns have been raised regarding the effects of abdominoplasty on respiratory functions. This topic has not been addressed regarding donor-site closure of DIEP flaps. Our aim is to prospectively compare pre- and post-operative spirometry in patients undergoing DIEP flap-based BR, investigating its impact on respiratory function.

Does Scarpa's Fascia Preservation in Abdominoplasty Reduce Seroma? A Systematic Review
CONCLUSIONS: The preservation of Scarpa's fascia during an abdominoplasty procedure should be considered as a routine practice, as it has been shown to result in reduced seroma incidence rates and faster drain removal.PMID:36747469 | DOI:10.1093/asj/sjad024 (Source: Hand Surgery)

Concurrent abdominal body contouring and hernia repair is a safe choice: An analysis of the 2015-2020 ACS-NSQIP database
Concurrent hernia repair (HR) with abdominal body contouring procedures (ABD), panniculectomy and abdominoplasty, has been discussed as a strategy. The purpose of this study is to evaluate potential medical and surgical complications following concurrent ABD-HR with a greater emphasis on cosmetic abdominoplasty.

Metabolic Changes After Surgical Fat Removal: A Dose –Response Meta-analysis
We read with great interest the article by Badran et al. regarding the metabolic changes after surgical subcutaneous fat removal (SFR).1 They reported beneficial effects from their dose-response meta-analysis of 22 eligible studies with 493 participants. Specifically, they showed that SFR, either by liposuction or abdominoplasty, significantly improves the insulin sensitivity for at least 6  months after surgery, while transient beneficial effects are anticipated in body mass index, blood pressure, leptin, and TNF-α serum concentrations.

The preoperative risk factors for hematoma development following postbariatric abdominoplasty: a retrospective analysis of 178 patients
ConclusionsIt can be concluded that patients undergoing bariatric surgery are more likely to develop hematomas. Postabdominoplasty hematomas were more likely to develop in smokers, men, and those with a lower BMI. These risk factors should be considered and optimized by surgeons when counseling patients preoperatively.Level of evidence: Level V, risk/prognostic study.

Impact of a combination of component separation technique and shoelace repair on big medline abdominal wall defect closure
CONCLUSION: This technique is effective in restoring the integrity of the abdominal wall in large midline abdominal wall defects and has an acceptable aesthetic appearance. In our study, minimal complications were reported, and no cases of recurrent hernias were diagnosed during follow-up.PMID:36641271 | DOI:10.1016/j.asjsur.2022.12.157 (Source: Asian Journal of Surgery)

Retrospective Analysis of Predictive Factors for Complications in Abdominoplasty in Massive Weight Loss Patients
ConclusionOur findings encourage us to continue associating rectus sheath plication, liposuction, and other body contouring surgeries with abdominoplasty. We emphasize the importance of proper patient selection, particularly with regard to anemia, before body contouring surgery in the interests of offering safe surgery and satisfactory results. Further studies are needed to investigate how the optimal BMI cut-off and abstinence from smoking (in terms of time) before surgery reduce postoperative complications.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

The Effect of Drains and Compressive Garments Versus Progressive Tensioning Sutures on Seroma Formation in Abdominoplasty
This study demonstrates the effectiveness of progressive tension sutures in reducing the incidence of seroma formation following abdominoplasty, particularly when large excision weights are involved. The addition of small volume liposuction distant to the abdominal flap does not increase the incidence of seroma formation.Level of Evidence III This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Sichere Diagnostik der Implantatrotation im hochaufl ösenden Ultraschall in Abhängigkeit vom Implantathersteller
Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir. 2022 Nov;54(6):495-500. doi: 10.1055/a-1957-6616. Epub 2022 Dec 13.ABSTRACTRotation of an anatomical breast implant may require revisional surgery. High-resolution ultrasound can help determine the exact implant alignment. However, the directional markings of anatomical implants are implemented very inconsistently by manufacturers. Therefore, a definite diagnosis is often not possible without precise knowledge of the expected imaging. The aim of this work is a differentiation of the imaging of common implant brands in high-resolution ultrasound. Methods To simulate an authentic imaging, anato...
