High definition abdominal contouring for the large weight loss male patient requires several considerations. First, it should be noted that these patients have significant skin redundancy due to the fact that they have lost significant weight.
This extensive skin redundancy prevents us from only considering liposuction which would result in further skin redundancy. It is of significance to note that skin redundancy following over-aggressive liposuction is actually is a cause of botched liposuction outcomes. So it goes without saying if we are to consider liposuction of the large weight loss male patient in order to achieve high definition outcomes, we must consider the excision of skin redundancy. This leads us to a new paradigm for high definition abdominal contouring for the large weight loss of male patient.
We propose a modified abdominal skin resection that mimics a tummy tuck but that still allows for aggressive liposuction in an attempt to achieve high definition body contour outcomes. We propose a novel aggressive resection of abdominal skin in order to eliminate skin redundancy while avoiding unnecessary undermining in order to preserve appropriate blood flow. Avoidance of abdominal undermining is acceptable sine male patients typically do not require abdominal muscle plication.
Meanwhile, preserving blood flow to the abdominal skin flap allows for high definition liposuction of the abdomen and the creation of muscle highlights in order to achieve high definition contouring results. In summary, we have developed a novel approach to high definition abdominal contouring for the large weight loss of a male patients.
Previously, large weight loss male patients were limited in the outcomes that they could achieve in a single surgery. Patients had to undergo a staged surgical protocol involving skin reduction surgery followed by liposuction surgery performed over three months following the first surgery. Today, we have a novel and effective solution for large weight loss male patients desiring high definition body contouring outcomes.
