According to the authors, advantages of outpatient abdominoplasty performed with the patient under conscious sedation are decreased nausea and vomiting and greatly reduced risk of deep venous thrombosis. Sharp dissection without electrocautery, preservation of perforators, and a plane of dissection that preserves lymphatic vessels has provided rapid recovery, minimal need for postoperative narcotics, and a low complication rate.
