    Safety and Patient Satisfaction of AbobotulinumtoxinA for Aesthetic Use: A Systematic Review.
    Aesthet Surg J 2017 05;37(suppl_1):S32-S44
    Full Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.
    A systematic review of the published literature (from January 2000 to January 2016) to ascertain the safety of, and patient satisfaction with, the aesthetic use of abobotulinumtoxinA was conducted. In addition to the licensed indications, other special populations were considered for discussion. The potential impact of neutralizing antibodies and systemic toxicity were also addressed.

    New Uses of AbobotulinumtoxinA in Aesthetics.
    Aesthet Surg J 2017 05;37(suppl_1):S45-S58
    Dermatologist in private practice in Miami, FL, USA.
    BotulinumtoxinA (BoNT-A) is now widely established for the main approved indication of reducing glabellar lines, and is also widely used off-label to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines in other parts of the face. The number of aesthetic procedures continues to increase as the patient population becomes more diverse, in particular with increasing numbers of people of color and men. Further developments in treatment may continue to expand the audience for BoNT-A by making procedures more comfortable and by delivering a more natural, less static appearance. Read More

    The Practical Use of AbobotulinumtoxinA in Aesthetics.
    Aesthet Surg J 2017 05;37(suppl_1):S12-S19
    Dermatologist, Departments of Dermatology and Ophthalmology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA.
    Botulinum toxin (BoNT) has been approved for aesthetic use since 2002. Since then, clinical studies and expert use have informed our understanding of how BoNT exerts its clinical effect and the practical use of this product across a number of aesthetic applications. This review discusses the clinical properties and characteristics of abobotulinumtoxinA, which patients are suitable for its use, and how it can be utilized to treat facial rhytides. Read More

    AbobotulinumtoxinA: A 25-Year History.
    Aesthet Surg J 2017 05;37(suppl_1):S4-S11
    Director and Founder of Toxin Science Limited, Wrexham, UK.
    During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Alan Scott showed that intramuscular injections of botulinum toxin (BoNT) corrected nonaccommodative strabismus without resorting to surgery. The UK doctors who trained with Scott soon realized the significant potential offered by BoNT type A as a therapeutic option for several difficult-to-treat diseases. This led to a collaboration between these pioneering clinicians and the Centre for Applied Microbiology and Research at Porton Down, United Kingdom, and, in turn, to the development and commercialization of abobotulinumtoxinA as Dysport (Dystonia/Porton Down; Ipsen Biopharm Ltd.

    Key Parameters for the Use of AbobotulinumtoxinA in Aesthetics: Onset and Duration.
    Aesthet Surg J 2017 05;37(suppl_1):S20-S31
    Director and Founder of Toxin Science Limited, Wrexham, UK.
    Time to onset of response and duration of response are key measures of botulinum toxin efficacy that have a considerable influence on patient satisfaction with aesthetic treatment. However, there is no overall accepted definition of efficacy for aesthetic uses of botulinumtoxinA (BoNT-A). Mechanical methods of assessment do not lend themselves to clinical practice and clinicians rely instead on assessment scales such as the Frontalis Activity Measurement Standard, Frontalis Rating Scale, Wrinkle Severity Scale, and Subject Global Assessment Scale, but not all of these have been fully validated.

    Patient-Reported Outcomes of Aesthetics and Satisfaction in Immediate Breast Reconstruction After Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy With Implants and Fat Grafting.
    Aesthet Surg J 2017 Mar 31. Epub 2017 Mar 31.
    From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.

However, there are little data beyond complication rates comparing these options. Fat grafting has emerged as an adjunct in NSM reconstructions to improve aesthetic results; however, its impact on patient perceptions of aesthetic outcomes remain unknown. Read More
