A Case Report of a Breast Implant-Associated Plasmacytoma and Literature Review of Non-ALCL Breast Implant-Associated Neoplasms.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Nov 24. Epub 2018 Nov 24.

University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH.

Lymphomas associated with breast implants are rare, with the most common being anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). Non-ALCL breast implant-associated lymphomas are even more rare, with only a small handful of such neoplasms reported to date. Given the need to better understand these pathologies as well as the increasing clinical and media attention to these diseases, we review the available literature of hematolymphoid neoplasms other than ALCL associated with breast implants and describe the first case of a patient diagnosed with a primary breast implant-associated plasmacytoma.

Beyond the L-Strut: Redefining the Biomechanics of Rhinoplasty Using Topographic Optimization Modeling.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, University College London (UCL), London, UK.

Rhinoplasty utilizes cartilage harvested from the nasal septum as autologous graft material. Traditional dogma espouses preservation the "L-strut" of dorsal and caudal septum which is as less resistant to axial loading than virgin septum. With the 90° angle between dorsal and caudal limbs the traditional L-strut also suffers from localized increases in internal stresses leading to premature septal 'cracking', structural-scale deformation or both.
