Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis in Plastic Surgery Patients Undergoing Facelift.

Aesthet Surg J Open Forum 2022 12;4:ojac024. Epub 2022 Apr 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Beaumont Health Systems, Royal Oak, MI, USA.

Background: In 2011, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons approved the Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Task Force Report, which recommended the use of the Caprini scoring system, which has been adopted for VTE prophylaxis by most surgical societies in America.

Objectives: The aim of this study is to investigate the incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients undergoing facelifts at a single institution who did not undergo VTE chemoprophylaxis based on the Caprini scoring system.

Methods: A retrospective chart review was conducted of patients who underwent facelift at a single institution. Read More

A Rationale for Micro-textured Breast Implant Augmentation.

Aesthet Surg J Open Forum 2022 30;4:ojac020. Epub 2022 Mar 30.

Background: Textured breast implants have been used in aesthetic breast surgery to decrease rates of malposition and capsular contracture. Recent concerns regarding breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)'s link to textured devices have prompted many physicians to reevaluate their use.

Objectives: The authors aimed to create an algorithm for when to use smooth vs micro-textured breast implants and provide their rationale for when micro-textured implants may be more beneficial. Read More

Authors:
Ozan Bitik

Aesthet Surg J 2022 May 5. Epub 2022 May 5.

Private practice in Ankara, Turkey.

Background: Retaining ligaments must be fully released for effective soft tissue mobilization during Sub-SMAS facelifts. Standart deep temporal fascia and lateral SMAS fixation techniques may fail earlier than anticipated, which may cause a relapse of facial aging signs. Reconstruction of retaining ligaments has been previously proposed to enhance facelift fixation. Read More

Total Intravenous Anesthesia With Dexamedatomadine for Hemodynamic Stability and Enhance Recovery in Facial Aesthetic Surgery.

Aesthet Surg J 2022 May 2. Epub 2022 May 2.

Clinical faculty, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY.

Background: Patients undergoing facial rejuvenation surgery have unique risk of perioperative complications that are directly affected by adverse consequences of the anesthetic utilized during the procedures. The ideal anesthetic agent is one that is safe to use in the outpatient population, has analgesic, sedative, and anesthetic properties, yet does not cause respiratory depression or hemodynamic irregularities.

Objectives: A retrospective analysis of a large outpatient facelift cohort was preformed to determine if dexmedetomidine, an alpha2- adrenergic receptor agonist, meets the criteria of an ideal adjunct with propofol in a TIVA protocol. Read More

Heavy Metals in Breast Implant Capsules and Breast Tissue: Findings from the Systemic Symptoms in Women-Biospecimen Analysis Study: Part 2.

Aesthet Surg J 2022 Apr 26. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Clinical instructor of surgery, Washington University, St. Louis, MO, USA.

Background: Breast Implant Illness (BII), as described in recent medical literature and by social media, describes a range of symptoms in patients with breast implants for which there are no physical findings or laboratory results that explain their symptoms. The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) Biospecimen study utilized a convergent design to prospectively study both qualitative systemic symptom data and quantitative heavy metals analysis of tissue obtained in surgery.

Objectives: Part two of this study aims to determine whether heavy metals are present in the capsules around both saline and silicone implants and if there is a statistical difference in the type or level of these metals between women with or without symptoms. Read More
