Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Breast augmentation and abdominoplasty are among the most common surgical procedures performed in the United States. Breast mastopexy procedures have continued to increase over the years. Complications of breast augmentation are similar to those of breast reduction, mastopexy, and abdominoplasty, and include seroma formation, cellulitis, wound dehiscence, wound necrosis, hematoma, and abscess formation. We report on a patient with ulcers secondary to breast and abdominal surgery and discuss the clinical and psychological complications of cosmetic surgery. Copyright Cosmetic Dermatology 2010.
