Centurión, Patricio, Gamarra García, Ronald, Romero Naváez, Carolina 03 1900 (has links)
Introducción y Objetivo. Los avances tecnológicos en los pro- cedimientos de Cirugía Plástica han favorecido la obtención de bue- nos resultados evitando un trauma quirúrgico mayor y disminuyendo las complicaciones postoperatorias. En este sentido, el uso de la tec- nología láser aplicado a la liposucción supuso una herramienta muy interesante e introdujo cambios sustanciales en la metodóloga y posi- bilidades de esta intervención Presentamos nuestra experiencia con el uso del láser 980-nm y de una nueva tecnología de láser 1210-nm empleadas en combinación con la cirugía de lipoabdominoplastia. Material y Método. Realizamos un estudio retrospectivo en pa- cientes intervenidos con nuestro protocolo quirúrgico entre los años 2007 y 2014. Realizamos la lipoaspiración en un primer periodo con láser de 980-nm y posteriormente el de 1210-nm, previa a lipoabdomi- noplastia con técnica clásica y cicatriz reducida. Llevamos a cabo 101 lipoabdominoplastias, 47 con el láser 980-nm y 54 con el de 1210-nm, con un seguimiento postoperatorio de hasta 6 meses. Resultados. No evidenciamos quemaduras, tromboembolismos ni epidermólisis. Entre las complicaciones recogidas cuantificamos a los 14 días de postoperatorio 8 seromas en el grupo de láser 980 nm – cicatriz reducida (25% del total de casos del grupo) y 2 casos en ambos grupos de cicatriz clásica (13.3 % de los casos del grupo de láser 980 nm – cicatriz clásica y 8.7% del grupo de láser 1210 nm – cicatriz clásica). Evidenciamos a los 2 meses de postoperatorio la formación de cicatrices hipertróficas en 3 casos, y a los 3 meses 1 ci- catriz queloidea en los grupos de láser 1210 nm, correspondiendo 3 casos al grupo de cicatriz clásica y 1 caso al grupo de cicatriz reducida. Conclusiones. Según nuestra experiencia, esta nueva tecnología que emplea láser 1210-nm en combinación con lipoabdominoplastia supone un protocolo reproducible y seguro. / Background and Objective. Technological advances in the pro- cedures of Plastic Surgery have favored the obtaining of good results avoiding a greater surgical trauma and reducing the postoperative complications. In this sense, the use of laser technology applied to li- posuction was a very interesting tool and introduced substantial chan- ges in the methodology and possibilities of this intervention We present our experience with the use of 980-nm laser and new 1210-nm laser technology in combination with lipoabdominoplasty surgery. Methods. We conduct a retrospective study in patients operated with our surgical protocol between 2007 and 2014. We performed li- posuction in a first period with 980-nm laser and then 1210-nm laser, prior to lipoabdominoplasty with classical technique and reduced scar. We did 101 lipoabdominoplasties, 47 with the 980-nm laser and 54 the 1210-nm laser, with a postoperative follow-up of up to 6 months. Results. There was no evidence of burns, thromboembolism or epidermolysis. Among the complications collected, we quantified at 14 days postoperatively 8 seromas in the laser group 980 nm - redu- ced scar (25% of the total cases in the group) and 2 cases in both clas- sic scar groups (13.3% of the cases in the group of laser 980 nm - classic scar and 8.7% of laser group 1210 nm - classic scar). At the 2- month postoperative period, the formation of hypertrophic scars in 3 cases, and at 3 months 1 keloid scar in the 1210 nm laser groups, with 3 cases corresponding to the classic scar group and 1 case to the re- duced scar group. Conclusions. According to our experience, this new technology that uses 1210-nm laser in combination with lipoabdominoplasty is a reproducible and safe protocol.

Perceptions of Cosmetic Alteration in Different Sized Attractive Women.

White, Deborah Suzanne 03 May 2003 (has links)
Two experimental phases examined the characteristics impacting the physical attractiveness stereotype and a potential stereotype shift. From reading a description of a hypothetical target, Phase 1 of this study revealed that participants considered an overweight attractive woman significantly more likely to help a friend in need and significantly more likely to become a friend than an underweight attractive woman. These findings provide understanding of how particular stereotypes may provide social benefits. In Phase 2, knowledge of the woman's plans for liposuction, which was disclosed in a second description of the target, dramatically lowered the participants' evaluations of her physical attractiveness, willingness to help a friend in need, and likelihood as a potential friend. The women's ratings of the target's willingness to help a friend dropped significantly more than the men's ratings. These results indicate that evaluations of physically attractive women may decline if they choose to unnaturally alter their appearance.

Liposucción con diodo láser 980-nm (LSDL 980-nm): optimización de protocolo seguro en cirugía de contorno corporal

Centurión, Patricio, Cuba, J.L., Noriega, A. 11 June 2014 (has links)
pccenturion@gmail.com / Introduction: Liposuction has undergone several improvements since its first description, including changes in the cannulas, variation in the concentration of the infiltrating solution, and the use of different devices and technologies. The use of laser technology devices for lipolysis and stimulation of skin retraction has contributed to the procedure. This article presents the authors’ experience with laser lipolysis in 400 patients, within a 5-year period, and discusses the principles of the technology and its effect on tissues. Methods: This is a study performed between July 2007 and July 2012 and included 400 patients who underwent laser lipolysis. All procedures were performed following the original protocol – infiltration of cold saline, passage of the cannula with an optic fiber for conducting the energy needed for laser lipolysis, skin retraction, and finally, conventional liposuction. Results: Hospitalization type ranged from outpatient to overnight surgery. Approximately 45% (180 of 400) of patients had minimal bruising, with involvement of 2% or more of the affected body surface. Hematoma, seroma, and dehiscence occurred in a total of 9% (36 of 400) of patients. We did not find any case of thermal burn of the skin. Conclusions: Laser lipolysis performed according to the described technique was safe and reproducible. / Introdução: A técnica de lipoaspiração recebeu várias contribuições desde sua primeira descrição, como modificações nas cânulas, variação na concentração da solução de infiltração e uso de aparelhos com tecnologias variadas. A utilização de aparelhos com tecnologia laser vem contribuir com o procedimento por meio da lipólise e com o estímulo de retração cutânea. Neste artigo é apresentada a experiência dos autores com a laserlipólise em 400 pacientes, no intervalo de 5 anos, sendo discutidos aspectos dos princípios da tecnologia e sua ação sobre os tecidos. Método: Estudo realizado entre julho de 2007 e julho de 2012, que incluiu 400 pacientes submetidos a procedimento de laserlipólise. Os procedimentos foram realizados seguindo protocolo original, com infiltração de soro gelado, passagem da cânula com fibra óptica para a condução da energia laser visando à laserlipólise, retração cutânea e, por último, lipoaspiração convencional. Resultados: O período de internação variou de cirurgia em regime ambulatorial a pernoite. Cerca de 45% (180/400 pacientes) dos pacientes evoluíram com equimoses mínimas, com acometimento de 2% ou mais da superfície corporal comprometida. Os casos de hematoma, seroma e deiscência totalizaram 9% (36/400 pacientes). Em nenhum caso foi constatada queimadura por lesão térmica na pele. Conclusões: O procedimento de laserlipólise realizado com a técnica descrita demonstrou segurança e reprodutibilidade

Avaliação estética dos resultados da lipoabdominoplastia em pacientes com sobrepeso. Estudo comparativo / Evaluation of aesthetic results of the lipoabdominoplasty in overweight patients. A comparative study

Osvaldo Ribeiro Saldanha 22 March 2013 (has links)
INTRODUÇÃO: Alterações funcionais e estéticas da parede abdominal, tais como flacidez de pele, lipodistrofia e diástase dos músculos retos abdominais, podem contribuir para a diminuição da autoestima e bem-estar do paciente. A lipoaspiração da parede abdominal durante a abdominoplastia com descolamento amplo tem sido contraindicada devido ao aumento do risco de complicações. A lipoabdominoplastia realiza apenas o descolamento seletivo do retalho ao longo das bordas mediais dos músculos retos abdominais, preservando os vasos perfurantes abdominais, o que permite a realização, com maior segurança, da lipoaspiração concomitantemente com o tempo cirúrgico da abdominoplastia. O objetivo do presente estudo foi avaliar o resultado estético da lipoabdominoplastia em pacientes com sobrepeso - Índice de Massa Corporal (IMC entre 25 e 29.9) quando comparadas com pacientes de peso normal (IMC entre 18,5 e 24,9). M?TODO: Foi realizada uma análise comparativa de resultados estéticos após a lipoabdominoplastia em dois grupos de 30 pacientes, um com IMC entre 25 e 29,9 e outro, de controle, com IMC entre 18,5 e 24,9, operadas entre 2000-2009. Para a avaliação dos resultados estéticos, foi utilizada a escala com parâmetros objetivos, desenvolvida pela Disciplina de Cirurgia Plástica da FMUSP, empregada por sete avaliadores independentes - três médicos, três não-médicos e o próprio cirurgião, no pré e pós-operatório. A escala avalia cinco aspectos em fotografia, volume do abdome, contorno lateral, excesso de pele ou flacidez, aspecto do umbigo e estética da cicatriz na parede abdominal. Os dados comparativos foram submetidos a análise estatística, com valor de significância \"p\" de 0,05. RESULTADOS: Tanto no grupo total (n=60) quanto em cada grupo isoladamente, a média das notas do pós-operatório foi significativamente maior que a média das notas do pré, para todos os avaliadores. Da mesma forma, a média das notas do Grupo II (de controle) sempre foi significativamente maior que a do Grupo I (de sobrepeso), tanto no pré como no pós-operatório, para todos os avaliadores, embora a média do ganho obtido - ou a diferença entre as notas do pós e do pré-operatório, que mede a melhora no resultado estético, tenha sido maior no Grupo I (de sobrepeso). Tanto no pré como no pós- operatório, a média das notas dos avaliadores não-médicos foi significativamente maior que a média das notas dos médicos. No pós-operatório, a média da nota na avaliação do cirurgião foi significativamente maior que a média dos avaliadores médicos e que a dos avaliadores não- médicos. O Índice de Correção Intraclasses (ICC) foi elevado e significativo, indicando alto grau de confiabilidade interna entre os profissionais. CONCLUSÃO: Houve diferença significativa na avaliação estética dos resultados da cirurgia do abdome, quando comparados os dois grupos com diferente IMC: o grupo de controle (IMC entre 18,5 e 24,9) apresentou resultado superior na média das notas, tanto no pré como no pós-operatório, para todos os avaliadores. Embora ambos os grupos tenham apresentado significativa melhora na avaliação estética após a lipoabdominoplastia, o ganho de melhora entre o pós e o pré-operatório foi maior no Grupo com IMC entre 25 e 29,9 / BACKGROUND: Aesthetic and functional deformities of the abdominal wall, as skin flaccidity, lipodystrophy and diastasis of rectus abdominis muscles may contribute to decreased self-esteem and well-being of the patient. Liposuction of the abdominal wall in traditional abdominoplasty (wide undermining) has been criticized for increasing the risk of complications. The lipoabdominoplasty performs a selective undermining of the flap along the medial borders of the rectus abdominis muscles, preserving the abdominal perforating vessels, thus allows liposuction during the same procedure of abdominoplasty with greater safety. The aim of this study was to evaluate the aesthetic results of lipoabdominoplasty in overweight patients (Body Mass Index - BMI 25-29.9) as compared to patients with normal weight (BMI between 18.5 and 24.9), operated by the same technique. METHODS: A comparative and retrospective analysis of late follow up results after lipoabdominoplasty between two groups of 30 patients, one with BMI between 25 and 29.9 and a control group with BMI between 18,5 and 24.9, operated from 2000 to 2009. To evaluate the aesthetic results was used a scale with objective parameters developed by the Plastic Surgery Department of São Paulo University, held by seven independent evaluators - three doctors, three no doctors and the surgeon. Five items in photography were evaluated - the abdominal volume, the lateral contour, excess of skin flaccidity, the appearance of the navel and quality of scar in the abdominal wall, both in pre and postoperative period. The data was submitted to statistical analysis. RESULTS: Both in the whole study population (n = 60) as in each group separately, the average score of the postoperative period was significantly higher than the pre, for all evaluators. Likewise, the average score of Group II (control) was always significantly higher than that of Group I (overweight), pre and postoperatively for all evaluators, although the mean difference between the post and pre-operative scores, which measures the improvement in the aesthetic result, was higher in Group I (overweight). Postoperatively, the average score, when assessed by the plastic surgeon was significantly higher than when assessed by other doctor and no doctor evaluators. The average score by non-medical evaluators was significantly higher than the average pointed out by doctors, both in the pre and postoperative period. The Intra Class Correction was high and significant, indicating a high degree of internal reliability between professionals. CONCLUSION: A significant difference was noted in the aesthetic evaluation of the abdomen when compared the two groups with different BMI: the control group (BMI between 18,5 and 24,9) presented superior results in grades in both the pre and post results for all evaluators. Both groups showed significant improvement in aesthetic evaluation after lipoabdominoplasty, but the gain between the pre and the postoperative was higher in the group with BMI between 25 and 29.9

Thérapies à partir du tissu adipeux : de la chirurgie esthétique et reconstructrice à la thérapie cellulaire. Application à la régénération des tendons chez les chevaux / Using adipose tissue as therapeutics : from plastic and reconstructive surgery to cell therapy. Application to the regeneration of tendons in horses

Girard, Anne-Claire 12 December 2012 (has links)
Utilisée depuis plus d'un siècle en chirurgie esthétique, la greffe autologue de tissu adipeux, ou lipofilling, est une technique sûre permettant le comblement des tissus mous. Cependant, bien que la technique ait connue de nettes améliorations au cours du temps, les chirurgiens font toujours face à une résorption du greffon qui oblige dans la majorité des cas à planifier plusieurs autres interventions afin que le résultat esthétique soit en adéquation avec les attentes du patient. Le procédé MICROFILL® a été développé dans le but d'augmenter le taux de prise de greffe en favorisant la survie cellulaire au sein du greffon. Cette dernière est optimisée par : un prélèvement et une réinjection de lobules adipeux de petite taille permettant de diminuer l'ischémie et la mauvaise nutrition des cellules - une élimination des éléments délétères (anesthésiques, cytokines inflammatoires) par un protocole de lavages et centrifugations non traumatique. D'autre part, au cours de ces dernières années, le tissu adipeux s'est révélé posséder un pouvoir thérapeutique plus important par l'hébergement de cellules souches mésenchymateuses au fort potentiel. Ces cellules sont présentes en grande quantité et facilement accessibles à partir d'une simple lipoaspiration. Cependant, la lipoaspiration implique bien souvent l'usage d'un anesthésique local et d'un vasoconstricteur qui peuvent nuire aux cellules. Nos études ont en effet montré que la lidocaïne, un anesthésique couramment utilisé, est cytotoxique pour les cellules souches du tissu adipeux, ayant pour effets l'inhibition de la prolifération cellulaire (arrêt du cycle cellulaire en phase G0-G1) et la nécrose des cellules. En revanche, une manipulation appropriée du tissu adipeux, se rapprochant du protocole MICROFILL®, permet de diminuer la mortalité cellulaire. L'effet délétère de la lidocaïne semble lié à l'apparition d'une vacuolisation cytoplasmique dont la nature est à ce jour non élucidée. De plus, la lidocaïne induit également un processus d'autophagie, dont les mécanismes moléculaires d'induction sont eux aussi inconnus et dont la finalité physiologique serait le maintien en vie de la cellule malgré le stress provoqué. Les conclusions de ces études mènent à certaines recommandations à suivre quant à l'usage de la lidocaïne en vue de la réinjection extemporanée de cellules souches adipeuses chez un patient. Aussi, dans le but de traiter les tendinopathies équines, ces études ont permis d'optimiser le protocole de prélèvement du tissu adipeux chez le cheval ainsi que le protocole d'extraction des cellules souches du tissu adipeux. Cette thèse a finalement permis de développer un kit à usage vétérinaire permettant de traiter les tendinopathies équines. Ce nouveau procédé de thérapie cellulaire a été testé chez des chevaux et s'est avéré très prometteur, permettant la régénération de la structure tendineuse et un retour au travail rapide des chevaux. / Despite the dark side of obesity in the pathogenesis of metabolic diseases, adipose tissue has been shown to be a good therapeutic tool. First, autologous fat grafting, also named lipofilling, has been used for over a century and represents a safe technique for soft tissue filling. However, although the technique has seen marked improvements over time, surgeons are still facing graft resorption that often requires overcorrection of the treated area or other interventions so that the aesthetic result is in line with expectations of the patient. Thus, MICROFILL® process has been developed in order to increase the rate of engraftment by promoting cell survival within the graft. The latter is enhanced by: - sampling and reinjection of small fat lobules in order to reduce ischemia and poor nutrition of the cells- elimination of deleterious elements (anesthetics, inflammatory cytokines) by a non-traumatic protocol involving soft centrifugations and washings. Furthermore, in recent years, adipose tissue has been found to have a greater therapeutic power by hosting mesenchymal stem cells with great potential. These adipose stem cells (ASCs) are present in large quantities and can be easily obtained from a simple liposuction. However, liposuction procedure often involves the use of a local anesthetic and a vasoconstrictor that can harm cells. Our studies have shown that lidocaine, an anesthetic commonly used, exerts cytotoxic effects on adipose stem cells, inhibiting cell proliferation (cell cycle arrest in G0-G1 phase) and inducing necrosis. Nonetheless, appropriate handling of adipose tissue, quite similarly to MICROFILL® protocol, reduces cell death. The deleterious effects of lidocaine appear to be related to the occurrence of cytoplasmic vacuolization whose nature is so far unclear. In addition, lidocaine also induces a process of autophagy, including molecular mechanisms of induction also unknown and whose physiological purpose could be cell survival despite the stress. The findings of these studies lead to some recommendations to follow regarding the use of lidocaine for the extemporaneous reinjection of ASCs in a patient. Also, in order to treat equine tendinopathy, these studies have been used to optimize adipose tissue harvest by liposuction on horses and the protocol of extraction of ASCs.Finally, this thesis has allowed developing a kit for veterinary use to treat equine tendinopathy. This new method of cell therapy has been tested in horses and has shown very promising results for tendon regeneration, knowing that treated horses could rapidly return to work.
