BACKGROUND Aesthetic surgery is a critical component of academic plastic surgery. As institutions are placing increased focus on aesthetic surgery, there is an opportunity to identify factors that facilitate the creation and maintenance of successful aesthetic plastic surgery programs. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to conduct a national survey to evaluate the current state of academic aesthetic surgery and to identify factors that contribute to success. METHODS A REDCap 122-question surve...

Musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries are among the most prevalent, disabling, and costly conditions that Americans face, affecting over half of those over 18 and nearly 75% of those over 65. Current treatments are largely palliative for many of these conditions and unmet needs have warranted the emergence of alternative treatments. Orthobiologics, such as adipose tissue derivatives (ATDs), are of high interest since they can be obtained in the office setting and their cellular components, including ad...

: 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 analysis of anatomic deformities should ensue. Technical variations of standard abdominoplasty are...

Background: Mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC)-based cytotherapies fuel the hope for reduction of chronic systemic immunosuppression in allotransplantation, and our group has previously shown this capability for both swine and human cells. MSCs harvested from distinct anatomical locations may have different behavior and lead to different outcomes in both preclinical research and human trials. To provide an effective reference for cell therapy studies, we compared human and porcine MSCs from omental ...
