    A New Human-Derived Acellular Dermal Matrix for Breast Reconstruction Available for the European Market: Preliminary Results.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Jan 4. Epub 2018 Jan 4.
    Breast Surgical Unit, Morgagni - Pierantoni Hospital, 47100, Forlì, Italy.
    Introduction: The introduction of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) contributed to the growing diffusion of direct-to-implant breast reconstruction (DTI-BR) following mastectomy for breast cancer. According to specific legislations, European specialists could not benefit from the use of human-derived ADMs, even though most evidence in the literature are available for this kind of device, showed optimal outcomes in breast reconstruction. The Skin Bank of the Bufalini Hospital (Cesena, Italy) obtained in 2009 the approval for the production and distribution of a new human cadaver-donor-derived ADM (named with the Italian acronym, MODA, for matrice omologa dermica acellulata) from the Italian National Transplant Center and National Health Institute.

    Ethnic Rhinoplasty in Female Patients: The Neoclassical Canons Revisited.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Dec 22. Epub 2017 Dec 22.
    FACES+ Plastic Surgery, Dermatology, Skin and Laser Center, La Jolla, CA, USA.
    Background: Despite the substantial amount of research devoted to objectively defining facial attractiveness, the canons have remained a paradigm of aesthetic facial analysis, yet their omnipresence in clinical assessments revealed their limitations outside of a subset of North American Caucasians, leading to criticism about their validity as a standard of facial beauty. In an effort to introduce more objective treatment planning into ethnic rhinoplasty, we compared neoclassical canons and other current standards pertaining to nasal proportions to anatomic proportions of attractive individuals from seven different ethnic backgrounds.

    Methods: Beauty pageant winners (Miss Universe and Miss World nominees) between 2005 and 2015 were selected and assigned to one of seven regionally defined ethnic groups. Read More

    Neck Contouring Without Rhytidectomy in the Presence of Excess Skin.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Dec 22. Epub 2017 Dec 22.
