Secondary Revision of Female Hairline Correction Surgery: Personal Experience.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Dana Plastic Surgery Clinic, Samju Building 10F, Gangnamdaero 606, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06038, Korea.

Patients undergoing secondary female hairline correction surgery present with dissatisfaction of various causes that require specific solutions. Satisfactory results following secondary revision surgery are achieved only after consideration of the reasons for the patient's dissatisfaction as well as specific factors regarding the state of the hairline, height and width of the forehead, and overall facial type; all of these must be considered when choosing the most suitable surgical method. In the present study, the authors used various surgical approaches according to the patient's characteristics and presenting symptoms in the performance of secondary hairline correction surgery and evaluated the adequacy of each method using a satisfaction survey.

Focus on the Importance of Lipomid-Abdominoplasty in the Body Contouring Surgery.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

University Santa Ursula, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Background: During the last few years, the surgical principles of abdominoplasty remained unchanged. Therefore, many observed results have misaligned, high and straight abdominal transverse scars, leading to the final positioning of the umbilical scar to be very close to the transverse scar, which gives the impression of a short abdomen. We propose that the abdominoplasty should change the basic conception of its marking, because we believe that it is important to place the transverse scar lower in the medial and pubic region, and higher in the lateral extremities, thus allowing a rotation of the flap of the anterior flanks back lumbar in the median inferior direction.

Toll-Like Receptors (TLRs) Expression in Contracted Capsules Compared to Uncontracted Capsules.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Department of Medical Microbiology and Infection Control, VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Introduction: The etiology of capsular contracture after surgical implantation of breast implants remains unclear, but an important role is seen for the immune system. Toll-like receptors are immune receptors recognizing both pathogen-associated molecular patterns and damage-associated molecular patterns. The former are present on bacteria such as Staphylococcus epidermidis (bacteria earlier associated with capsular contracture), and the latter are released after (mechanical) stress. Read More

Staged Mosaic Punching Excision of a Kissing Nevus on the Eyelid.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Hanyang University Seoul Hospital, Hanyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: A congenital divided nevus, also known as kissing nevus, is a type of congenital compound nevus that affects equal areas of the upper and lower eyelids. The edges of the nevus touch or "kiss" during closure of the lids, owing to its extension to the lid margins. Multiple treatment modalities, such as dermabrasion, cryotherapy, primary closure after excision, and skin grafts, have been proposed; however, complications such as recurrence, ectropion, skin color mismatch, and scar contractures are known to occur.

Endoscopic Transaxillary Versus Inframammary Approaches for Breast Augmentation Using Shaped Implants: A Matched Case-Control Study.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Eight Plastic Surgery, EGI Building 7th Floor, 843 Nonhyun-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06031, South Korea.

Purpose: The incision for breast augmentation can be chosen from the transaxillary, inframammary fold, periareolar, or transumbilical approaches. While the inframammary fold approach is commonly used worldwide, the transaxillary approach is more popular in Asia due to the more conservative location of the scar. In this study, we performed augmentation mammoplasty using anatomically shaped implants via the endoscopic transaxillary and inframammary fold incisions and compared the outcomes. Read More

50 Shades of Red: The Predictive Value of Closed Suction Drains for the Detection of Postoperative Bleeding in Breast Surgery.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Mar 21. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Center for Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery, University Hospital Regensburg and Caritas Hospital St. Josef Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauss-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: While closed suction drains (CSDs) are still frequently employed in clinical practice, the supporting evidence is limited with some studies demonstrating a failure of routine CSD use in preventing hematoma or seroma. Nonetheless, CSD quantity and quality fluid assessment is still appreciated by clinicians to detect postoperative bleeding. This study investigates the value of routine CSD use, in breast surgery, to predict postoperative bleeding. Read More

Lowering Lateral Canthoplasty and Orbital Rim Shaving: An Ignored but Necessary Procedure for Maximizing the Effect of Reduction Malarplasty in Asians.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Mar 21. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Center for Maxillofacial Surgery, ID Hospital, 142, Dosan-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06039, Korea.

Background: Although reduction malarplasty is a well-accepted procedure for Asians with prominent cheek bones, some patients are not fully satisfied with the outcomes and request further surgery. This is because much attention on the contouring procedure has focused on the position of the zygomatic body and arch. As a result, periorbital appearance including the axis of the lateral canthal angle and the protrusion of the inferolateral orbital rim are often overlooked or ignored. Read More

Effects of Frozen Stromal Vascular Fraction on the Survival of Cryopreserved Fat Tissue.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Xuzhou Medical University Affiliated Hospital, Xuzhou, China.

Background: Nowadays, the use of cryopreserved fat tissue for soft tissue augmentation is common, except for its unpredictable fat graft absorption, and the toxicity of the cryoprotective agent remains a limitation. In this study, the effects of freezing stored fat tissue without a cryoprotector, and the addition of the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) on the survival of cryopreserved transplants was studied.

Methods: Lipoaspirates from six donors were processed and cryopreserved at - 20 °C, - 80 °C and - 196 °C, respectively. Read More

Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetics Surgery, Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul University-Cerrahpasa, Istanbul, Turkey.

Introduction: A fat graft is the closest thing to being the ideal soft tissue filler. Although it has many advantages, reliability of late-term survival is a never-ending debate. Although there are observational studies that research the effect of cigarette smoke on fat graft take in clinical setting, there has not been an objective experimental animal study on the affect of smoking on fat graft survival.

Caudal Septal Extension Graft Sutured with Absorbable Material and Not Fixed to the Nasal Spine Region Compared with the Conventional Fixation Method: A Retrospective Study.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 Feb 27. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Department of Plastic Surgery, San Rafael University Hospital, Bogota, Colombia.

Background: The caudal septal extension graft (CSEG) is a predictable method for positioning the tip and columella during rhinoplasty, and it is commonly performed using permanent sutures and in some cases fixating the graft to the nasal spine region (NSR) (conventional method). Whether this predictability is preserved when using absorbable sutures has yet to be determined.

Methods: We performed a retrospective assessment of 1146 patients who underwent rhinoplasty performed by the same surgeon using the CSEG method from 2008 through 2017 in an academic setting. Read More
