Objectives The aim of this study was to compare between traditional abdominoplasty and current techniques of abdominoplasty, follow complications associated with the new techniques of abdominoplasty, etiology and management, and minimize the amount of invasive surgery while maximizing the esthetic surgical results and patient benefits. Patients and methods A total of 49 patients (26 women and 23 men) between 20 and 60 years of age were studied in the period from October 2010 to October 2014 at the Plastic Surgery Department, Menofia University Hospitals. The patients were divided into three groups to compare between traditional abdominoplasty, lipoabdominoplasty with limited dissection superior to the umbilicus and lipoabdominoplasty with limited dissection superior to the umbilicus, preservation of scarpas fascia, and lowering incision line. Results A total of 49 patients (26 women and 23 men) between 20 and 60 years of age were included in this study. The study was carried out on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria, and the choice of participants for each group was carried out randomly. There was a statistically significant difference between different groups in age, blood transfusion, and occurrence of complications (P < 0.05). Conclusion We recommend following the new technique of abdominoplasty, which includes lipoabdominoplasty, limited dissection superior to the umbilicus with preservation of scarp's fascia; it was found that fewer complications developed with the use of our new technique for lipoabdominoplasty compared with the use of the traditional technique, and there were greater patient benefits than observed previously.
