The article discusses repercussions of the 90-day ban on combined liposuction/abdominoplasty procedures in Florida. Some surgeons wonder if such restrictions in Florida will become permanent--and if, in coming days, other states will follow suit. The combination of procedures increases the risks of blood clots, leading to pulmonary failures. This is a problem for all specialties who perform major office surgery--especially high-volume liposuction and combination procedures. Under the ban, physicians in Florida are required to separate liposuction from abdominoplasty procedures by 14 days, and to submit to the state surgery logs from June 2002 to January 2004.
