    The use of progressive tension sutures for drain-free abdominoplasty closure has been well published in the aesthetic literature and found to be effective at reducing abdominal drainage without a worse complication profile. This research aims to evaluate the outcomes of incorporating PTS into donor site closures for abdominal-based breast reconstruction.

  • Free flap breast reconstruction using a novel robotic microscope

    1 month ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    : Robotic-assisted surgery has evolved over the past decades. Currently, novel robotic systems for microsurgery are being launched onto the European market. This novel microscope is a high-definition camera system, connected to an augmented reality headset, projecting a clear image with high magnification in front of the surgeon's eyes. Motion tracking translates the surgeon's head movements onto the system via a multi-axis robotic arm. We report the first use of the robotic microscope for autologous breast reconstruction in humans.
