Outcomes of Abdominoplasty in Tumescent Local Anesthesia Combined with Subdural Anesthesia
ConclusionsTumescent local anesthesia combined with subdural anesthesia is a highly effective and safe method for performing abdominoplasty. This technique has proven to be an excellent choice for primary abdominoplasty, providing significant benefits to patients and surgeons alike due to its safe administration, precise pain management during and after surgery, and minimal postoperative side effects.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Standardization of the Extent and Timing of Rectus Diastasis Repair in Abdominoplasty Cases with TOF Neuromuscular Monitoring: A Clinical Study
AbstractDespite the close focus on the anterior abdominal wall and the classification, maneuvers and materials related to the rectus abdominis and its fascia, there is no established standard concerning the extent of plication. The anterior abdominal wall is a musculoaponeurotic structure and a dynamic motor system with innervation and tonus. Therefore, the timing of the plication is as important as the suture technique and material, since the muscle relaxant will lose its effect in varying time periods. The aims of our study were to determine the change in the amount of plication between groups with and without muscle rel...

Flowchart in Post-Bariatric Surgery: A Research for the Appropriate Type and Timing of Plasties Reshaping the Body
ConclusionOur findings suggest that the timing of body contouring surgery should be tailored to the type of bariatric procedure performed. Abdominoplasty is recommended as a last procedure for sleeve gastrectomy patients, while gastric bypass patients are suitable candidates for early abdominoplasty. Biliopancreatic diversion patients should stabilize their weight before abdominoplasty. The Pittsburgh Index is a valuable tool for assessing the timing of post-bariatric plastic surgery. Further research is needed to optimize surgical planning and outcomes.Level of Evidence VThis journal requires that authors assign a level o...
