In April’s Surgery Spotlight, Bradley Bengtson, MD returns to highlight, in a second application, his use of the SERI® Surgical Scaffold. In this installment, Dr. Bengtson performs a Breast Reduction with the use of SERI® Surgical Scaffold on a 51-year-old patient to support the lower pole of the breast and to mitigate against future lower pole stretch. This patient presented significant ptosis and more breast volume than desired, along with the desire to support her breast on her chest.
Dr. Bengtson demonstrates the proper planning and marking of a patient when utilizing lower pole scaffold support, as well as discusses the use of the tumescent anesthesia approach and its benefits to the patient. He describes his approach to achieving a uniform flap and a decrease of wound healing complications, thus optimizing patient outcomes and minimizing adverse events. Dr. Bengtson also explains his rationale for, and results to date of, the use of SERII® Surgical Scaffold in supporting this approach.

In the first Surgery Spotlight of 2015, Jeffrey Kozlow, MD performs a Large Transverse Panniculectomy on a patient that is in need of a hysterectomy. The patient is a 60-year-old woman who was initially sent to the clinic for an endometrial malignancy that required a hysterectomy. Her abdomen could not be accessed without the removal of a large, symptomatic, overhanging pannus that extended to her mid thighs. Dr. Kozlow explains that the most significant challenge with this operation is the management of the patient in the preoperative and postoperative stages. This patient underwent a 29.9 pound panniculectomy which allowed for her to have her oncologic procedure at the same time. Dr. Kozlow walks through the stages of the panniculectomy procedure including: incision design, surgical technique and risk reduction measures. The overall goal is to perform an efficient and effective operation that not only provides significant benefit to the patient, but also minimizes the postoperative risks associated with this type of procedure.
