Special Issue Introduction

Abdominoplasty is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgical procedures, with the demand rising for stellar outcomes across a broad spectrum of presentations. Attractive results require tight skin with gender-specific sculpturing to reflect underlying adipose and musculoskeletal anatomy that transitions smoothly into well-shaped hips, flanks, upper thighs, and lower chest. In our search for excellence, new techniques and technologies, unanticipated just twenty years ago have emerged. Inspired by the pioneering work of South American and European plastic surgeons, the senior editor’s work in body contouring surgery has evolved to approach every abdominoplasty candidate, regardless as to the etiology of their deformity, as potentially a circumferential challenge. While the patient is the final arbitrator of the scope of surgery, extending naturally beyond the boundary of the abdomen yields unparalleled control of the torso. And with the integration of state of the art adjunctive technology, we can truly refine the abdomen 4-dimensionally. In this special issue of Plastic and Aesthetic Research, with the assistance of respected colleagues, we will present the latest research findings in cosmetic surgery of the abdomen and complementary neighboring regions. Supplemental techniques such as oblique flankplasty (OFLA), energy assisted lipoplasty, bipolar radiofrequency skin tightening, ultrasound guided lipoaugmentation, and integration of predictive 3D imaging will be discussed to help enhance the results at every level of abdominoplasty.
