BACKGROUND: The Plastic Surgery Milestones Project was jointly conceived by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Plastic Surgery as a tool to improve granularity in resident feedback. Resident self-evaluations were compared to attending clinical competency committee evaluations to gauge resident self-perceptions and understanding of the milestones framework. METHODS: Semiannual evaluations from June of 2014 to 2017 were analyzed and compared with cor...

Background:Adipose tissue reaches cellular stasis after puberty, leaving adipocytes unable to significantly expand or renew under normal physiologic conditions. This is problematic in progressive lipodystrophies, in instances of scarring, and in soft-tissue damage resulting from lumpectomy and traum

Background:Clinical outcomes suggest that postoncologic reconstruction with fat grafting yields cumulative incidence curves of recurrence comparable to those of other breast reconstruction procedures; however, results from experimental research studies suggest that adipose stem cells can stimulate c

: The technique of dermal suspension, parenchymal reshaping mastopexy is a useful procedure for patients with massive weight loss with a typical presentation. The operation is tailored to the individual deformity, powerfully reshapes the breast, and can be safely combined with other commonly performed procedures. It is long-lasting and associated with minor complications that are easily treated in an office setting.

BACKGROUND: Demand for brachioplasty in the United States has seen a dramatic increase, from 338 procedures in 2000 to 17,860 in 2016. In this article, the authors present their series of arm band deformities not yet described in the literature. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of massive weight loss patients undergoing brachioplasty at their institution from 2000 to 2016. Preoperative and postoperative photographs were reviewed. Descriptive statistics and t test were used. RESULTS: One h...

Abstract Objective Tissue-engineered vascular grafts containing adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells offer an alternative to small-diameter vascular grafts currently used in cardiac and lower-extremity revascularization procedures. Adipose-derived, mesenchymal stem cell–infused, tissue-engineered vascular grafts have been shown to promote remodeling and vascular homeostasis in vivo and offer a possible treatment solution for those with cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, the time needed to ...

Abstract Background Bariatric surgery usually results in substantial weight loss and a reduction in medical comorbidities. Many patients, as a consequence of the weight loss, subsequently evidence loose, redundant skin. Objectives This investigation seeks to examine the prevalence of body contouring surgery (BCS) by patients approximately 4 to 5 years after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. Demographics, change in BMI, and psychosocial variables were also used to predict body dissatisfaction, de...

Summary:Soft-tissue deficits in amputation stumps can lead to significant pain and disability. An emerging treatment option is stem cell–enriched fat grafting. This is the first study assessing the potential for this treatment modality in lower extremity amputation sites. In this prospective cohort

Background:Fat grafting has emerged as the treatment of choice for soft-tissue augmentation and reconstruction. Variability of volume retention remains the greatest challenge for this technique, often requiring multiple operations to achieve the desired volume. Graft that is placed greater than 2 mm
