10 Scopus citations


Seromas are a common complication in plastic surgery. In this article, the authors describe their approach to the prevention and treatment of seromas and include a discussion of the evolution of their techniques. They provide specific technical details for many body contouring operations, including abdominoplasty, belt lipectomy, brachioplasty, and thighplasty. Many of the authors' techniques question the traditional dictums of plastic surgery, and they hope to encourage others to consider novel techniques for the treatment and prevention of seromas. Level of Evidence: 4.
