Is Breast Reduction More Dangerous for Morbidly Obese Women?

As the obese population increases, more overweight women are consulting plastic surgeons for breast reductions. In previous studies, this group of patients had been thought to have higher complication rates. The authors of this study, however, found it to be as safe to perform large-volume breast reductions in morbidly obese women as slimmer patients.

Post-Bariatric Patients' Nutritional Deficiency: Concerns for Plastic Surgery

With the increasing popularity of bariatric operations, there has been a subsequent increase in body contouring following weight loss. This study highlights an important detail plastic surgeons need to assess in these potential patients: their nutritional health or lack of it. This study reports on the widespread evidence of nutritional deficiency in these patients that can lead to problems with wound healing and immune response optimization. The authors detail the various nutritional deficiencies commonly found in post-bariatric patients, noting that plastic surgeons may want to recommend optimal nutrition through supplements.
