Optimal Facelift Vector and its Relation to Zygomaticus Major Orientation.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Private facial plastic surgery practice in New York, NY.

Background: The vector of SMAS redraping in rhytidectomy is often described in relation to the zygomaticus major muscle, so that suspension prevents distortion of the mimetic musculature and a "facelifted appearance." There is no data describing the true orientation of this muscle in the midface.

Objective: Define the vector of the zygomaticus major muscle relative to the Frankfort horizontal plane. Read More

Dorsal Roof Technique for Dorsum Preservation in Rhinoplasty.

Authors:
Süleyman Taş

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Mar 6. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Preoperative Skin Conditioning: Extracellular Matrix Clearance and Skin Bed Preparation, A New Paradigm.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Apr;39(Supplement_3):S103-S111

ophthalmic plastic surgeon in private practice in Boca Raton, FL.

This paper introduces the concept of "skin bed preparation" prior to surgical procedures. Following the theory of chronic wound bed preparation and adapting the skin model to one of chronic wound changes related to extrinsic and intrinsic factors, a topical formulation aimed at recycling the extracellular matrix (ECM) from accumulated waste products is evaluated and discussed. The clearance of these products and stimulation of new replacements has the potential to change the regenerative milieu of the skin so that when procedures are carried out, cellular signaling and cross-talk at the dermal level are improved and healing is optimized.

Adjustable Depth Fractional Radiofrequency Combined With Bipolar Radiofrequency: A Minimally Invasive Combination Treatment for Skin Laxity.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Apr;39(Supplement_3):S112-S119

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, Division of Plastic Surgery, Manhattan Eye, Ear, Throat Infirmary, New York, NY.

Increasingly, patients are seeking minimally invasive methods to tighten skin and remodel adipose tissue. A large treatment gap exists among 3 types of patients: (1) the younger demographic, who increasingly desire soft tissue tightening without traditional operations, scars, and downtime; (2) patients with soft tissue laxity who are not "severe enough" to justify an excisional procedure, but not "mild enough" to rely on liposuction with soft tissue contraction alone; and (3) those with recurrent laxity who already underwent traditional excisional procedures. In these populations, plastic surgeons risk under- or overtreating with traditional methods. Read More

The Impact of Skin Care Product Sales in an Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Practice.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Despite significant growth of the global skin care market, many plastic surgeons do not offer skin care products through their aesthetic practice. However, skin care products represent a significant potential revenue stream for plastic surgeons, not only by generating revenue from product sales but by improving patient retention over time and, in turn, generating additional surgical and nonsurgical revenue.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the financial implications that skin care sales can have on an aesthetic surgery practice. Read More

Surgical Site Infections in Aesthetic Surgery.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 03 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN.

Surgical site infections represent one of the most common postoperative complications in patients undergoing aesthetic surgery. As with other postoperative complications, the incidence of these infections may be influenced by many factors, and varies depending on the specific operation performed. Understanding of the risk factors for the development of these infections is critical since careful patient selection and appropriate perioperative counselling will set the right expectations, and can ultimately improve patient outcomes and satisfaction.

Division of Dental and Maxillofacial Surgery, G.B. Rossi Hospital and Medical University of Verona, Piazzale L.A. Scuro, Verona, Italy.

Background: Canthopexies can be performed to modify the eye slant, both when the lateral canthus is lower than the medial one (congenital defect) or in case the patient asks for an almond-shaped eye (cosmetic indication).

Methods: We reviewed 30 patients treated with a "dynamic canthopexy" between January 2005 to March 2015. Read More

Practical Guidance for Optimizing Patient Comfort During Microfocused Ultrasound with Visualization and Improving Patient Satisfaction.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Private practice in Chicago, IL.

Background: Microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) is an effective way to correct skin laxity through lifting and tightening skin on the face, neck, and décolleté as well as other parts of the body such as the knees, arms, and abdomen, among others. In addition to being a non-invasive modality for tissue tightening, MFU-V has a biological effect on tissue, rejuvenating the skin through stimulation of elastogenesis and neocollagenesis. MFU-V is also commonly combined with other interventions such as fillers, neuromodulators, and absorbable suspension sutures. Read More

All operative interventions in plastic surgery have one thing in common: closure of an incision or wound at the conclusion of the procedure. For many years, the only option to accomplish this task was the use of sutures. Today's surgeon, however, has many more options available, ranging from smooth to barbed suture, external to internal staples, internal to external adhesive glues, and incisional negative-pressure wound therapy.
