  • Measuring Outcomes in Cosmetic Abdominoplasty: The BODY-Q. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3) Vries CEE, Klassen AF, … Pusic AL
  • The BODY-Q is a condition-specific patient-reported outcome measure that enables a comprehensive assessment of outcomes that are specific to patients undergoing body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty. The BODY-Q scales were designed to be responsive to the effects of abdominoplasty on health-related quality of life and appearance outcomes. The BODY-Q covers a range of content domains, …
  • High-Definition Excisional Body Contouring: Mini Lipoabdominoplasty (FIT Mommy) and Enhanced Viability Abdominoplasty. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):415-428.Hoyos Ariza AE, Perez Pachon ME
  • The abdominoplasty procedure poses a number of unique challenges. If the stigmata of the operation is to be avoided, careful planning and surgical execution are required. We describe our experience in full and mini abdominoplasties with a 360-degree approach, involving all muscular groups and body segments as described by high-definition liposculpture. Selective fat grafting is also safely perfor…
  • Deep Venous Thrombosis Prophylaxis. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):409-414.Kraft CT, Janis JE
  • Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed aesthetic procedure but has one of the highest risks for venous thromboembolism (VTE) events in aesthetic surgery. Surgeons can face challenging decisions when performing combination procedures and deciding on appropriate methods of VTE prophylaxis. This article summarizes the current evidence for the incidence of VTE events in abdominoplasty and abdominopla…
  • Abdominoplasty After Massive Weight Loss. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):389-396.Brower JP, Rubin JP
  • After massive weight loss (MWL), patients present with deformities that are more severe and often different than those observed in standard cosmetic abdominoplasty. The first step is careful consideration of the special factors involved in preoperative screening of patients with MWL presenting for body contouring surgery. Once these patient factors are optimized and surgery is considered, careful…
  • Noninvasive Abdominoplasty. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):379-388.Hurwitz DJ, Wright L
  • Noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments are increasingly supplanting, or complimenting, abdominoplasty. For optimal delivery of patient care and to maintain a dominant share of the body-contouring market, plastic surgeons need to embrace these new technologies. High capital purchases, costly disposables, maintenance fees, lack of experience, conflicting anecdotal reports, energy-related com…
  • Abdominoplasty with Combined Surgery. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):365-377.Shermak MA
  • Abdominoplasty is the fifth most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States and combining it with other procedures has become more the norm than the outlier. Liposuction is the most common adjunctive procedure, followed by breast surgery, lower back lift, and thigh lift, in addition to hernia repair and gynecologic procedures. The goal of these combination procedures…
  • Drainless Abdominoplasty Using Progressive Tension Sutures. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):351-363.Pollock TA, Pollock H
  • Drain-free abdominoplasty using progressive tension sutures (PTS) was initially described in 2000 in a small retrospective series. However, the authors' experience with this technique spans well over 3 decades, and their technique has evolved to simplify the procedure to make it easier and more reproducible by the surgeon and improve the patient's recovery and overall experience. This article pro…
  • Lipoabdominoplasty with Anatomic Definition: An Evolution on Saldanha's Technique. [Review]
    Clin Plast Surg. 2020 Jul; 47(3):335-349.Saldanha O, Ordenes AI, … Saldanha CB
  • Lipoabdominoplasty is one of the most frequent abdominal body contouring procedures performed today. It guarantees a safe combination of abdominoplasty and liposuction while minimizing the risk of ischemic flap complications. This is because of the limited undermining performed and the liposuction adjunct, both of which minimize perforator injury. In the last several years, the integration of ana…
  • Comparison of skin biopsy sample processing and storage methods on high dimensional immune gene expression using the Nanostring nCounter system. [Journal Article]
    Diagn Pathol. 2020 May 15; 15(1):57.Vider J, Croaker A, … West NP
  • CONCLUSIONS: A variety of processing methods can be used for digital immune gene expression profiling in mRNA extracted from skin that are comparable to snap frozen skin specimens, providing skin cancer clinicians greater opportunity to supply skin specimens to tissue banks. NanoString nCounter technology can determine gene expression in skin biopsy specimens with a high degree of sensitivity despite lower RNA yields and processing methods that may generate poorer quality RNA. The increased sensitivity of digital gene expression profiling continues to expand molecular pathology profiling of disease.
  • Clinical Study Demonstrates that Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation Does Not Cause Injury to Fat Cells. [Case Reports]
    Lasers Surg Med. 2020 May 08 [Online ahead of print]Zachary CB, Burns AJ, … Jimenez Lozano JN
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study failed to demonstrate either fat cell injury or inflammatory response following EMMS treatment. While electromagnetic muscle stimulation may non-invasively induce muscle changes, this clinical study found no evidence of an impact injurious or otherwise on subcutaneous fat. © 2020 The Authors.

  • The Northwestern Abdominoplasty Scar Model: A Tool for High-Throughput Assessment of Scar Therapeutics. [Journal Article]
    Adv Wound Care (New Rochelle). 2020 Apr 29 [Online ahead of print]Hsieh JC, Joshi CJ, … Galiano RD
  • Significance: Scar management is an important concern in plastic surgery. Scar models that best mimic in vivo human scarring are essential for understanding scar development and progression, assessing the efficacy of therapeutics, and providing reliable and valid research outcomes. Recent Advances: In 2016, Lanier et al. proposed a new in vivo patient model, the Northwestern Abdominoplasty Scar M…
  • Hemophilia C: A Case Report With Updates on Diagnosis and Management of a Rare Bleeding Disorder. [Case Reports]
    J Hematol. 2019 Sep; 8(3):144-147.Jayakrishnan T, Shah D, Mewawalla P
  • Hemophilia C or factor XI deficiency is a rare clotting disorder with prevalence of only 1 per 1 million. A 24-year-old male with multiple abdominal surgeries complicated by wound infections and poor healing was admitted to plastic surgery service for an elective abdominoplasty. Hematology was consulted for increased intraoperative and postoperative bleeding. Laboratory workup showed high-normal …
  • Long-term follow-up after surgical repair of abdominal rectus diastasis: a prospective randomized study. [Journal Article]
    Scand J Surg. 2020 Apr 17 [Online ahead of print]Swedenhammar E, Strigård K, … Stark B
  • CONCLUSIONS: No recurrence of abdominal rectus diastasis appeared. There was no difference in quality of life or long-term pain between the two surgical groups. Implantation of retromuscular mesh entails more extensive surgery implying potentially higher risk for complications. This leads us to recommend reconstruction with double-row self-retaining sutures for the repair of abdominal rectus diastasis in patients with functional disability.
