Clinical and Radiological Evaluation of Onlay Mesh Abdominoplasty in Obese Multiparous Patients with Moderate-to-Severe Rectus Diastasis
ConclusionComprehensive preoperative assessment and imaging techniques like ultrasound and CT scans allow surgeons to detect postpartum changes in the abdominal wall. Mesh reinforcement may be indicated for diastasis above 4 cm in obese multiparous females. Thorough preoperative evaluation permits customized surgical plans to optimally restore abdominal wall anatomy and function.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Lipoabdominoplasty: Comparing UAL Versus UAL/PAL Techniques on Complication Profile and Patient Safety
CONCLUSION: BMI over 30 kg/m2 has been shown to have an adverse effect on the profile of complications in both groups, resulting in an increased risk, especially for major and minor complications such as seroma in the UAL group.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE IV: This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Abdominoplasty in a Patient With Type 3 von Willebrand Disease: A Case Report
We report the case of a 47-year-old woman with type 3 vWD requiring medically indicated abdominoplasty after massive weight loss due to bariatric surgery. The case was successfully managed with individualized bodyweight-adapted substitution of recombinant vWF vonicog alfa and tranexamic acid under close monitoring of vWF and factor VIII activity. For further risk stratification, we propose the multidisciplinary treatment of patients with severe vWF undergoing elective plastic surgery in specialized centers providing around-the-clock laboratory testing and access to a blood bank. In addition, strict hemostasis during surger...

Comparative analysis of the efficacy and functionality of abdominoplasty versus minimally invasive techniques in the surgical treatment of diastasis rectus abdominis in postpartum women
ConclusionAlthough current data on minimally invasive approaches is limited, our review reveals that both open and minimally invasive approaches are viable options for diastasis recti repair in postpartum women. Identifying the optimal approach for diastasis recti repair should rely on the patient ’s desired treatment outcome. If the patient indicates a desire for the removal of excess abdominal subcutaneous tissue, abdominoplasty may be a better surgical approach. Alternatively, if the patient puts a greater emphasis on shorter recovery time and smaller surgical incisions/scars, minimally invasive approaches may be a be...

Finesse in Fleur-de-lis Abdominoplasty
Body contouring for weight loss patients usually requires not only lifting but also some extent of central body tightening to achieve complete tissue readjustment. Fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty provides best vector correction with nice contouring results, especially for central body type patients, with superior waist definition with or without associated circumferential belt lipectomies. Special interest has been addressed on technical refinements to enhance vertical scar with neoumbilicoplasty as well as the mons pubis projection with marking and suturing refinements. Both the inner scar umbilicus and the monsplasty are sim...

Primary care doctor's perception about the scope of plastic surgeons: A national survey
CONCLUSIONS: There is a clear underestimation of the role of plastic surgery in a wide range of conditions, which may lead to the downsizing of plastic surgery departments in the national health system. It is of utmost importance to educate primary care doctors so that patients are referred correctly and in a timely manner.PMID:37924719 | DOI:10.1016/j.bjps.2023.10.072 (Source: Hand Surgery)
