    From the "Fat Capsule" to the "Fat Belt": Limiting Protective Lipofilling on Irradiated Expanders for Breast Reconstruction to Selective Key Areas.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Mar 19. Epub 2018 Mar 19.
    Department of Surgery "Valdoni," Unit of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, "Sapienza" Univesity of Rome, Viale del Policlinico, 155, 00161, Rome, Italy.
    Background: The number of patients undergoing mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction with tissue expanders followed by post-mastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) is exponentially increasing. To reduce the rate of complications, in 2011, the senior author of this manuscript described the use of protective lipofilling in patients undergoing unplanned PMRT to the expander with a specific protocol aiming to decrease the rate of complications.

    Objectives: A study was performed to evaluate the thickness of the breast irradiated tissue to create a standard pattern of "protective" lipofilling infiltration on limited key areas that could re-establish a thickness similar to non-radiotreated tissues. Read More

    Myomodulation with Injectable Fillers: An Innovative Approach to Addressing Facial Muscle Movement.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Jun 16;42(3):798-814. Epub 2018 Mar 16.
    Clinica Dr. Maurício de Maio, Avenida Ibirapuera, 2907 cj 1202, São Paulo, SP, Moema EP: 04029200, Brazil.
    Consideration of facial muscle dynamics is underappreciated among clinicians who provide injectable filler treatment. Injectable fillers are customarily used to fill static wrinkles, folds, and localized areas of volume loss, whereas neuromodulators are used to address excessive muscle movement. However, a more comprehensive understanding of the role of muscle function in facial appearance, taking into account biomechanical concepts such as the balance of activity among synergistic and antagonistic muscle groups, is critical to restoring facial appearance to that of a typical youthful individual with facial esthetic treatments.

    Evaluation of Glandular Liposculpture as a Single Treatment for Grades I and II Gynaecomastia.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Mar 16. Epub 2018 Mar 16.
    Department of Hand and Plastic Surgery, Burn Centre, Linköping University Hospital, 58185, Linköping, Sweden.
    Background: Gynaecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast, of which the psychological burden on the patient can be considerable, with the increased risk of disorders such as depression, anxiety, and social phobia. Minimal scarring can be achieved by liposuction alone, though it is known to have a limited effect on the dense glandular and fibroconnective tissues. We know of few studies published on "liposuction alone", so we designed this study to evaluate the outcome of combining liposuction with glandular liposculpturing through two axillary incisions as a single treatment for the management of grades I and II gynaecomastia.
