AbstractRemoval of excess abdominal fat may be necessary to facilitate major gynaecological surgery for oncology patients. The aim of the study was to assess the feasibility, associated morbidity of such operation when combined with other major gynaecological procedures. This was a retrospective review of cases performed in a tertiary gynaecological oncology centre. All of the patients were diagnosed with gynaecological cancers. The results show a modest increase in operative time; however the procedure was feasible and safe with no other increased risk. This represents time saving for the patients and hospital in having two operations in one session.
