RESUMO

Incorrect bispectral index (BIS) values have been reported due to interference with this monitoring system. We report a case of a 46-year-old woman who underwent liposuction and breast lipofilling, where we observed a misinterpretation by the BIS algorithm that has not yet been reported. Concurrently with abdominal and thigh liposuction, an increase in the BIS value was observed. The importance of examining electroencephalogram (EEG) and density spectral array (DSA) readings during liposuction procedures is highlighted in this case report, extending our observations beyond just the numerical BIS value, which is not always reliable.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) has become popular because of its favorable outcomes in fat emulsification, blood loss reduction, and skin tightening. This study aimed to compare the effects of two UAL devices on the abdomen by assessing postsurgery skin biomechanical properties. METHODS: This single-blind, prospective study (2020-2022) involved 13 liposuction procedures performed on patients without chronic diseases. Each patient's abdomen was divided vertically from the xiphoid to the perineum. Vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance (VASER)-assisted liposuction (Solta Medical, Inc., Hayward, CA) was performed on one half, while the other half underwent liposuction with high-frequency ultrasound energy (HEUS)-assisted technology. Skin biomechanical measurements, including distensibility, net elasticity, biological elasticity, hydration, erythema, melanin, and skin firmness, were taken at 12 and 24 months postsurgery, focusing on the anterior abdomen, 8 cm to the right and left of the umbilicus. RESULTS: Analysis of the above skin biomechanical measurements revealed no significant differences between the HEUS and VASER devices, except for skin firmness, which showed a notable increase following HEUS surgery. Patient-perceived clinical differences were assessed via nonvalidated questionnaires, revealing no distinctions between devices. CONCLUSION: Biomechanical skin results post-UAL surgery with these devices on the abdomen were not significantly different, although HEUS revealed increased skin firmness. This suggests that HEUS-assisted technology, akin to other devices, is a viable option for UAL procedures.

RESUMO

Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed worldwide. Although many fatal complications of liposuction have been reported, to our knowledge, no cases of fatal liposuction complications specifically related to the face region have been reported. Here, we present a case of a woman in her 30s who developed a cervical hematoma and upper airway obstruction following facial liposuction. We present this unique case to highlight the rare occurrence of fatal complications specific to facial liposuction. The patient underwent liposuction during surgery at a cosmetic surgical clinic and awoke from anesthesia after the procedure. Two hours later, she developed a neck swelling and dyspnea. While the anesthesiologist managed her airway, she went into cardiopulmonary arrest. She was then transferred to the emergency room but died on day 7 of hospitalization. The autopsy revealed swelling of the right cheek and mandible, a subcutaneous hematoma in the same area, and laryngeal edema. A damaged facial artery branch was identified, which was consistent with the computed tomography (CT) findings on admission. CT also showed that the hematoma compressed the right internal jugular vein, suggesting that venous outflow impairment caused by the hematoma may have exacerbated the airway obstruction. This case reveals that cervical hematoma caused by facial liposuction can cause fatal upper airway obstruction and the onset of the hematoma may be gradual.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Amid rising obesity, concurrent ventral hernia repair and panniculectomy procedures are increasing. Long-term outcomes of transverse abdominis release (TAR) combined with panniculectomy remain understudied. This study compares clinical outcomes and quality of life (QoL) after TAR, with or without panniculectomy. METHODS: A single-center retrospective review from 2016 to 2022 evaluated patients undergoing TAR with and without panniculectomy. Propensity-scored matching was based on age, body mass index, ASA, and ventral hernia working group. Patients with parastomal hernias were excluded. Patient/operative characteristics, postoperative outcomes, and QoL were analyzed. RESULTS: Fifty subjects were identified (25 per group) with a median follow-up of 48.8 months (interquartile range, 43-69.7 months). The median age and body mass index were 57 years (47-64 years) and 31.8 kg/m2 (28-36 kg/m2), respectively. The average hernia defect size was 354.5 cm2 ± 188.5 cm2. There were no significant differences in hernia recurrence, emergency visits, readmissions, or reoperations between groups. However, ventral hernia repair with TAR and panniculectomy demonstrated a significant increase in delayed healing (44% vs 4%, P < 0.05) and seromas (24% vs 4%, P < 0.05). Postoperative QoL improved significantly in both groups (P < 0.005) across multiple domains, which continued throughout the 4-year follow-up period. There were no significant differences in QoL among ventral hernia working group, wound class, surgical site occurrences, or surgical site occurrences requiring intervention (P > 0.05). Patients with concurrent panniculectomy demonstrated a significantly greater percentage change in overall scores and appearance scores. CONCLUSIONS: Ventral hernia repair with TAR and panniculectomy can be performed safely with low recurrence and complication rates at long-term follow-up. Despite increased short-term postoperative complications, patients have a significantly greater improvement in disease specific QoL.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Autologous fat grafting is a method of improving aesthetic outcomes after both breast reconstruction and aesthetic surgery through volume enhancement and tissue contouring. Long-lasting effects are linked to greater patient satisfaction and more optimal augmentation results. Harvesting, processing, and injection techniques may all affect the longevity of deformity filling. Our objective is to evaluate the effect of lipoaspirate processing modality on longitudinal volume retention after surgery. METHODS: A prospective, single-institution, randomized control trial placed consented postmastectomy fat grafting patients into 1 of 3 treatment arms (active filtration, low-pressure decantation, and standard decantation) in a 1:1:1 ratio. A preoperative 3-dimensional scan of the upper torso was taken as baseline. At the 3-month postoperative visit, another 3D scan was taken. Audodesk Meshmixer was used to evaluate the volume change. RESULTS: The volume of fat injected during the initial procedure did not differ significantly between the treatment arms (P > 0.05). Both active filtration and low-pressure decantation resulted in higher percentage volume retention than traditional decantation (P < 0.05). Active filtration and low-pressure decantation exhibited comparable degrees of fat maintenance at 3 months (P > 0.05). DISCUSSION: Compared with using traditional decantation as the lipoaspirate purification technique, active filtration and low-pressure decantation may have led to higher levels of cell viability by way of reduced cellular debris and other inflammatory components that may contribute to tissue resorption and necrosis. Further immunohistochemistry studies are needed to examine whether active filtration and low-pressure decantation lead to lipoaspirates with more concentrated viable adipocytes, progenitor cells, and factors for angiogenesis.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: A firming and toning cosmetic body lotion (FTB) was developed to target key pathways relevant to body skin health and rejuvenation that may complement the improvements observed after noninvasive body contouring (NIBC). A pilot study explored the efficacy and tolerability of FTB as an adjunct to cryolipolysis. METHODS: An open-label, single-site, single-arm, 12-week study enrolled subjects aged 20 to 65 who had pre-elected to receive 1 or more cryolipolysis treatments (CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite; Zeltiq Aesthetics, Inc.) on the inner thigh, back/bra fat, or submental areas. Immediately post-procedure, the investigator applied FTB to the treated area. Subjects then applied FTB topically twice daily for 12 weeks on the treated area. Skin texture and firmness were graded visually by the investigator using a 10-point scale, and subjects graded effectiveness, product attributes, and satisfaction with a questionnaire.  Results: Seventeen subjects (16 women, 1 man) enrolled. After 12 weeks of FTB application, significant improvements in skin firmness were observed in all treated areas, while skin texture showed improvements on the inner thigh and back/bra fat (all P≤0.009). With continued use following cryolipolysis, more than 70% of subjects agreed that FTB improved skin firmness, smoothness, and overall appearance. Subjects indicated that FTB was an effective adjunct to cryolipolysis. Throughout the study, 86% to 92% of subjects reported “fair,” “good,” or “excellent” satisfaction with FTB.  Conclusion: This pilot study suggests that FTB may complement skin improvements seen post-NIBC.J Drugs Dermatol. 2024;23(4): doi:10.36849/JDD.7917.

RESUMO

Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove localized excess adipose tissue. According to The Aesthetic Society's latest annual report, liposuction is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure. Despite its popularity, the existing literature lacks a unified understanding of the risks associated with liposuction. The aim of this study was to measure complications of liposuction. A systematic review and meta-analysis was reported according to PRISMA guidelines and registered on the PROSPERO database (CRD42023471626). The primary outcome was overall complication rate. The absolute risk for individual complications was also assessed. From 2957 articles, 39 studies were selected for analysis. In total, 29,368 patients were included, with a mean age of 40.62 years and mean BMI of 26.36 kg/m2. Overall, the rate of any complication was 2.62 (95% CI, 1.78-3.84). The most common complication was contour deformity, with a prevalence of 2.35% (95% CI, 1.05%-5.16%). The prevalence of hyperpigmentation was 1.49% (95% CI, 1.12%-1.99%), seroma 0.65% (95% CI, 0.33%-1.24%), hematoma 0.27% (95% CI, 0.12%-0.60%), superficial burn 0.25% (95% CI, 0.17%-0.36%), allergic reaction 0.16% (95% CI, 0.050%-0.52%), skin necrosis 0.046% (95% CI, 0.013%-0.16%), generalized edema 0.041% (95% CI, 0.0051%-0.32%), infection 0.020% (95% CI, 0.010%-0.050%), venous thromboembolism 0.017% (95% CI, 0.0060%-0.053%), and local anesthesia toxicity 0.016% (95% CI, 0.0040%-0.064%). Liposuction is a safe procedure with low complications, of which contour deformity is the most common. Raising awareness of specific risks can enhance surgical outcomes and improve patient-physician understanding.

RESUMO

Introducción: Varios estudios han evaluado el efecto de la liposucción o de la abdominoplastia sobre la salud metabólica, incluyendo la resistencia a la insulina, con resultados mixtos. A varias pacientes con sobrepeso, sin obesidad marcada, se les recomienda el procedimiento de liposucción combinado con abdominoplastia, sin que exista publicada evidencia alguna sobre la efectividad de combinar ambos procedimientos en la salud metabólica. Métodos: El presente estudio prospectivo de cohorte evaluó el cambio en la resistencia a la insulina y otros parámetros metabólicos en dos grupos de mujeres hispanoamericanas normoglucémicas con sobrepeso. Las pacientes del primer grupo fueron sometidas a liposucción únicamente (LIPO), mientras que el segundo grupo fue sometido a liposucción con abdominoplastia (LIPO+ABDO). Resultados: Un total de 31 pacientes fueron evaluadas, incluyendo a 13 con LIPO y 18 con LIPO+ABDO; ambos grupos mostraron HOMA-IR prequirúrgicos similares (p>0,72). En las del grupo LIPO evaluadas 60días después del procedimiento, se observaron HOMA-IR similares a sus niveles prequirúrgicos (2.,98±0,4 vs. 2,70±0,3, p>0,20); las del grupo LIPO+ABDO, sin embargo, mostraron HOMA-IR significativamente reducidos en comparación de sus índices prequirúrgicos (2,37±0,2 vs. 1,73±0,1, p<0,001). También en este grupo, esta reducción se correlacionó positivamente con el valor prequirúrgico de HOMA-IR (p<0,001) y, de manera interesante, se observó una correlación negativa entre la edad de la paciente y el grado de disminución en el HOMA-IR tras la cirugía (Spearman r=−0,56, p<0,05). No se observaron cambios en los otros parámetros bioquímicos evaluados. Conclusiones: Los datos de este estudio sugieren que cuando es combinada con abdominoplastia, la liposucción mejora la resistencia a la insulina en pacientes hispanoamericanas. Se requieren de estudios adicionales para probar dicha posibilidad.(AU)


Introduction: Several studies have evaluated the effect of liposuction or abdominoplasty on metabolic health, including insulin resistance, with mixed results. Many overweight patients, with no marked obesity, are recommended to undergo liposuction combined with abdominoplasty, but no study has evaluated the effectiveness of combining the two procedures on metabolic health. Methods: The present prospective cohort study compares the metabolic parameters of two groups of normoglycemic Hispanic women without obesity. The first group underwent liposuction only (LIPO), while the second group had combined liposuction and abdominoplasty (LIPO+ABDO). Results: A total of 31 patients were evaluated, including 13 in the LIPO group and 18 in the LIPO+ABDO group. The two groups had similar HOMA-IR before surgery (P>.72). When tested 60days after surgery, women in the LIPO group had similar HOMA-IR compared to their preoperative levels (2.98±0.4 vs. 2.70±0.3; P>.20). However, the LIPO+ABDO group showed significantly reduced HOMA-IR values compared to their preoperative levels (2.37±0.2 vs. 1.73±0.1; P<.001). In this group, this decrease also positively correlated with their preoperative HOMA-IR (Spearman r=0.72; P<.001) and, interestingly, we observed a negative correlation between the age of the subjects and the drop in HOMA-IR after surgery (Spearman r=−0.56; P<.05). No changes were observed in the other biochemical parameters that were assessed. Conclusions: These data suggest that, when combined with abdominoplasty, liposuction does improve insulin resistance in healthy Hispanic females. More studies are warranted to address this possibility.(AU)

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The clinical outcomes of bipolar radiofrequency (RF) lipolysis, a prevalent non-invasive fat reduction procedure, hinge on the delicate balance between effective lipolysis and patient safety, with skin overheating and subsequent tissue damage as primary concerns. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate a novel bipolar radiofrequency lipolysis technique, safeguarding the skin through an innovative PID temperature control algorithm. METHODS: Utilizing COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software, a two-dimensional fat and skin tissue model was established, simulating various PID temperature control schemes. The crux of the simulation involved a comparative analysis of different PID temperatures at 45 °C, 50 °C, and 55 °C and constant power strategies, assessing their implications on skin temperature. Concurrently, a custom bipolar radiofrequency lipolysis device was developed, with ex vivo experiments conducted using porcine tissue for empirical validation. RESULTS: The findings indicated that with PID settings of Kp = 7, Ki = 2, and Kd = 0, and skin temperature control at 45 °C or 50 °C, the innovative PID-based epidermal temperature control strategy successfully maintained the epidermal temperature within a safe range. This maintenance was achieved without compromising the effectiveness of RF lipolysis, significantly reducing the risk of thermal damage to the skin layers. CONCLUSION: Our research confirms the substantial practical utility of this advanced PID-based bipolar RF lipolysis technique in clinical aesthetic procedures, enhancing patient safety during adipose tissue ablation therapies.

RESUMO

In massive weight loss patients, abdominal lipocutaneous excess is a frequently encountered complication with major psychological, medical and functional consequences. A wide variety of corrective techniques exists, each with its advantages and side effects, and the choice of the technique must be made in conjunction with the patient, taking into account his unique anatomy, his wishes and his risk factors, in order to obtain the best aesthetic result while minimising the per- and post-operative complications. Liposuction, if prudently executed with the correct technique, permits a further harmonisation of the body contour in zones not reached by the surgical correction, representing a very useful and efficient additional tool.


L'excès cutanéo-adipeux abdominal est une conséquence très fréquente chez les patients après une perte de poids massive, avec d'importantes répercussions psychologiques, médicales et fonctionnelles. Plusieurs techniques de correction des déformations existent, avec leurs avantages et complications spécifiques. Le choix doit être individualisé et partagé avec le patient sur la base de ses caractéristiques anatomiques uniques, de ses souhaits et de ses facteurs de risque, pour un résultat esthétique optimal avec une minimisation des complications. La liposuccion, lorsqu'elle est effectuée de façon prudente et selon les règles de l'art, est un outil additionnel très efficace pour une harmonisation des contours dans les zones non directement ciblées par l'intervention choisie.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT: Although systemic complications following liposuction are rare, visual impairment has been reported in a few cases and may occur for a variety of reasons. Here we present the case of a 31-year-old woman who underwent 360° liposuction and subsequently developed headaches and delayed partial visual disturbance 10 days after the procedure. She had symptoms suggestive of idiopathic intracranial hypertension, which was confirmed by lumbar puncture. A literature search revealed other case reports of visual changes or headaches following high-volume liposuction. Our case provides further evidence of a rare association between liposuction and idiopathic intracranial hypertension, emphasizing the need for thorough preoperative evaluations and the consideration of possible risks.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Over the past 4 years, aesthetic surgery, notably liposuction, has substantially increased. Tumescent liposuction, a popular technique, has two variants-true tumescent liposuction (TTL) and semi-tumescent liposuction. While TTL reduces risks, it has limitations. There is no literature reported on semi-tumescent liposuction under deep sedation using the propofol-ketamine protocol, which is proposed as a potentially safe alternative. METHODS: The retrospective analysis covered 8 years and included 3094 patients performed for tumescent liposuction under deep sedation, utilizing the propofol-ketamine protocol. The evaluation of patient safety involved an examination of potential adverse events with a specific focus on respiratory issues related to sedation, including instances of mask ventilation. RESULTS: Among the 3094 cases, no fatalities were recorded. Noteworthy events included 43 mask ventilation instances, primarily occurring in the initial 10 min. Twelve cases experienced surgery cancellation due to various factors, including respiratory issues. Three patients were transferred to upper-level hospitals, while another three required blood transfusions. Vigilant management prevented significant complications, and other adverse events like venous thromboembolism (VTE), fat embolism, severe lidocaine toxicity, and so on were not observed. CONCLUSIONS: The analysis of 3094 tumescent liposuction cases highlighted the overall safety profile of the propofol-ketamine protocol under deep sedation. The scarcity of severe complications underscores its viability. The study emphasizes the significance of thorough preoperative assessments, careful patient selection, and awareness of potential complications. Prompt interventions, particularly in addressing sedation-related respiratory issues, further contribute to positive outcomes for patients.

RESUMO

La técnica de abdominoplastia TULUA, fue concebida por el Dr. Francisco Villegas en Colombia, su acrónimo en inglés refleja sus principios fundamentales: plicatura Transversal, Sin despegamiento, Liposucción sin restricción que incluye la línea media y flancos, Neo umbilicoplastia, ubicación baja de cicatriz y libre posición del ombligo. A lo largo de los últimos 12 años, la técnica TULUA ha ganado espacio en América Latina, Norteamérica, la zona árabe e India. Destacando su relevancia, se ha propuesto la publicación de un libro monográfico, programado para 2024, que abarcará desde los principios fundamentales hasta las experiencias internacionales con la técnica. Las indicaciones de la abdominoplastia TULUA han evolucionado, incluyendo casos estéticos, secundarios, hernias, cicatrices previas, pérdida masiva de peso, alta definición, aumento muscular y combinaciones con otras plicaturas. Ha sido aplicada con éxito en cierre del abdomen donante de reconstrucción mamaria. A través de investigaciones especializadas y revisiones de pares, la TULUA ha sido reconocida por su aplicabilidad y beneficios, especialmente en la realización segura de liposucción en abdominoplastias. Se sugieren estudios adicionales para evaluar los resultados y posibles complicaciones, abriendo oportunidades para una mayor comprensión y refinamiento. El futuro de la abdominoplastia TULUA parece prometedor, anticipando trabajos prospectivos, indicaciones adicionales y un enfoque gradual para cirujanos en formación. En última instancia, la técnica se presenta como una adición al repertorio de procedimientos estéticos abdominales, contribuyendo al avance de la cirugía abdominal estética.


The TULUA abdominoplasty technique, conceived by Dr. Francisco Villegas in Colombia, its acronym in English reflects its fundamental principles: Transverse plication, no Undermined flap above the umbilicus, Liposuction without restrictions including midline and flanks, Neo umbilicoplasty, low scar placement, and free umbilical positioning. Over the past 12 years, the TULUA technique has gained acceptance in Latin America, North America, the Arab region, and India. Highlighting its relevance, the publication of a monographic book has been proposed, its launch is scheduled for 2024, covering from fundamental principles to international experiences with the technique. Indications for TULUA abdominoplasty have evolved, including aesthetic cases, secondary cases, hernias, previous scars, massive weight loss, high definition, muscle augmentation, and combinations with other plications. It has been successfully applied in closing the donor abdomen for breast reconstruction. Through specialized research and peer reviews, TULUA has been recognized for its applicability and benefits, especially in safely performing liposuction during abdominoplasties. Additional studies are suggested to evaluate results and potential complications, opening opportunities for greater understanding and refinement. The future of TULUA abdominoplasty appears promising, anticipating prospective works, additional indications, and a gradual approach for surgeons in training. Ultimately, the technique presents itself as an addition to the repertoire of abdominal aesthetic procedures, contributing to the advancement of aesthetic abdominal surgery.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Thread-lifting (TL) is a minimally-invasive technique for facial rejuvenation, whereas liposuction is commonly used for facial contouring. This retrospective cohort study aims to introduce and evaluate a novel technique that combines liposuction and thread-lifting for mid-lower facial rejuvenation. METHODS: Consecutive patients who underwent TL for mid-lower facial rejuvenation from May 2016 to May 2021 were divided into thread-lifting group (TL group) or thread-lifting plus liposuction group (TLL group) according to whether liposuction was performed adjunctively. The co-primary outcomes were the changes between the preoperative and 6-month postoperative Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale (WSRS) and Facial Aging Evaluation Scale (FAES). RESULTS: A total of 185 patients (184 females) with an average age of 34.5±5.5 years were included. There were no significant differences in patients' age, number of threads, and preoperative WSRS and FAES between the two groups. The TLL group (n = 128) had significantly lower postoperative WSRS (1.5±0.6 vs. 1.8±0.8, p<0.001) and FAES (2.5±1.4 vs. 3.8±2.1, p<0.001) than the TL group (n = 57). The decrease in WSRS (0.8±0.6 vs. 0.2±0.7, p<0.001) and FAES (2.7±1.3 vs. 1.6±1.6, p<0.001) were greater in the TLL group. Only 3.8% patients experienced slight side effects and totally recovered. CONCLUSIONS: The combination of TL and liposuction is an effective and safe technique for simultaneous contour improvement and facial rejuvenation in middle-aged East Asian females.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to elucidate the external temporary skin plication (ETSP) technique in gynecomastia surgery and evaluate its role in mitigating complications and enhancing cosmetic outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study was conducted on patients diagnosed with gynecomastia, explicitly falling under Rohrich Grades IIB and III, with dermal quality being a crucial determinant. Between September 2018 and November 2021, surgical interventions were performed on 96 qualifying patients by the senior author. The operative protocol consisted of ultrasonic and suction-assisted liposuction, supplemented by lateral periareolar piecemeal gland excision. Within the cohort, 42 patients were subjected to the novel ETSP technique. In contrast, the remaining 54 patients underwent standard treatment, serving as the control group for subsequent comparative assessment. RESULTS: One patient required revisions for contour irregularities, while partial nipple necrosis was observed in two patients but healed without surgical intervention. However, saucer-like deformity and total nipple necrosis were not observed in our series. The overall complication rate in our series was 19%, with 9.5% of cases requiring revision. In our control group, the overall complication rate in our series was found to be 22%, with 13% of cases requiring revision. CONCLUSIONS: ETSP provides a homogeneous spread of the excess skin and greatly reduces or eliminates the amount of skin fold formation. ETSP reduces the need for possible skin excision and reduces visible scars and incisions, and it helps improve the results of skin-protective surgeries that are widespread today.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Gluteal ptosis results in a severe disturbance of gluteal aesthetics. Currently, satisfactory procedures for improving gluteal ptosis are lacking. OBJECTIVES: To improve gluteal ptosis, the authors propose a novel concept of combined liposuction of the lower gluteal region and fat grafting to the upper gluteal and infragluteal regions, and verify its efficacy and safety. METHODS: Patients who underwent liposuction of the lower gluteal region combined with fat grafting to the upper gluteal and infragluteal regions between January 2020 and July 2023 were retrospectively reviewed. Postoperative changes in the gluteal ptosis grade, complications, and patient satisfaction were evaluated. RESULTS: A total of 28 patients were enrolled in this study; 21 (75.0%) patients had gluteal ptosis grade 4 and 7 (25.0%) patients had gluteal ptosis grade 5. The median fat removal volume was 210 mL, and the median fat graft injected volume was 355 mL in the gluteal region and 180 mL in the infragluteal region. All patients showed improvement in gluteal ptosis; 16 (57.1%) patients improved by 1 grade and 12 (42.9%) patients showed a 2-grade improvement. All patients were satisfied with their posttreatment outcomes. Only 1 patient showed lateral translocation of the fat graft. No other complications were observed. CONCLUSIONS: Liposuction of the lower gluteal region combined with fat grafting to the upper gluteal and infragluteal regions is effective in improving gluteal ptosis, with a low risk of complications and high patient satisfaction.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The study examines, for the first time, the impact on quality of life after liposuction for lipoedema. The influence of aesthetic plastic interventions and their effects on treatment outcomes has been a major focus of our research group over the past 20 years. METHODS: A total of 35 patients were invited to participate in our prospective study, with 30 responding to both the pre- and postoperative questionnaires. The patients received the questionnaires pre-operatively, and 6 months after the liposuction. Our questionnaire set included a self-developed, indication-specific part, along with standardised and validated questionnaires such as the Questions on Life Satisfaction (FLZM), Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-4), Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES) and the Freiburg personality inventory-revised (FPI-R). RESULTS: Our self-developed questionnaire showed that our patients feel more balanced, more attractive and more self-confident after the treatment. The FLZM showed significant improvements in all three modules: the general satisfaction with life, the state of health and the outer appearance (body image). Using the PHQ-4, a significant improvement in the two subscales of anxiety and depression could be determined, as well as a reduction in overall mental stress. In addition, the RSES showed a significant improvement in self-esteem post-operatively. Furthermore, the FPI-R indicated a significant improvement in emotional stability. CONCLUSIONS: Liposuction improves the quality of life in lipoedema patients. Post-operatively, our patients reported less pain and were more satisfied with their bodies and appearance. The hypothesis that liposuction in lipoedema improves the quality of life as a multidimensional construct could be confirmed.
