Full-thickness total upper eyelid reconstruction with a lid switch flap and a reverse superficial temporal artery flap.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2020 Feb 18. Epub 2020 Feb 18.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Sapporo Medical University school of Medicine, S1W16, Chuo-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido 060-8543, Japan.

Background: Reconstruction of the upper eyelid with the same eyelid tissue is desirable because of the ability to achieve eye opening/closing and corneal protection, and a lid switch flap is a useful method. For total defects, almost all of the tissues of the lower eyelid should be used; however, the reconstruction of the lower eyelid donor site has often been undervalued. Reconstruction with an insufficient amount of soft tissue often results in complications such as lagophthalmos and ectropion. Read More

Palatal Reconstruction after Major Surgical Excision.

Curr Health Sci J 2019 Oct-Dec;45(4):416-418. Epub 2019 Dec 30.

Department of Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, Romania.

Oncological excision surgery in the oral and maxillofacial area amputates important structures or open cavities (sinus, nose, mouth) which are usually "closed". The disappearance of an eye, tongue, soft palate or cheek, raises serious issues regarding the resumption of partial or total functions of that region, in terms of social reintegration of the patient. In the cephalic extremity, the reconstruction material is limited, so specialists resort to resources located away from the defect to achieve closure. Read More

Facial Nerve Danger Zones.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 01;145(1):99-102

Miami, Fla.; and Dallas, Texas From Department of Plastic Surgery, University Of Miami School of Medicine; and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

Facial nerve injury is one of the most feared complications in surgical rejuvenation of the aging face. Understanding the three-dimensional architecture of the facial soft tissue, the fascial planes that exist within this architectural arrangement, and the danger zones where the facial nerve is situated superficial and adjacent to the planes of dissection commonly used in face-lift techniques, are the keys to safety in preventing motor branch injury. The two-dimensional branching patterns of the marginal and cervical branches of the facial nerve are variable, making it difficult to ascertain exact nerve location when dissecting within the cheek and neck.

The Facial Fat Compartments Revisited: Clinical Relevance to Subcutaneous Dissection and Facial Deflation in Face Lifting.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 11;144(5):1070-1078

Miami, Fla.; and Dallas, Texas From the Institute of Aesthetic Medicine and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

The facial fat compartments were described over a decade ago, but their clinical relevance to both deflation and techniques in facial rejuvenation is underappreciated. Although much of the literature following their description has focused on further anatomical elucidation of compartment anatomy, clinical relevance has focused on volumetric compartment augmentation. From the authors' perspective, understanding compartmentalization of facial fat provides an anatomical roadmap of the facial subcutaneous plane and a patient-specific guide for the degree of skin flap dissection in facial rejuvenation.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Nov-Dec;30(8):2490-2492

Department of Reconstructive Surgery, Busan Baik Hospital, InJe University School of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Background: Reduction malarplasty, popular among Asians, is currently performed preferably via the intraoral approach. However, to prevent complications such as malunion and cheek drooping, a rigid fixation is essential to compensate for the action of the masseter. Accordingly, the authors aimed to perform an experimental study on the optimal fixation location during intraoral reduction malarplasty using an L-shaped osteotomy. Read More

Does the Optimal Layer of the Skin Include the Orbicularis Oculi Muscle When Elevating Cheek Rotation Flap?

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2019 Apr-Jun;12(2):112-117

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: The cheek rotation flap is widely used as an optimal technique for lower eyelid reconstruction; however, the elevation layer of the skin including the orbicularis oculi muscle (OOM) remains unresolved.

Materials And Methods: Between February 2006 and October 2012, 11 patients who underwent repair of partial-thickness defects of the lower eyelids using the cheek rotation flap were included in this prospective study. We investigated the influence of elevating the layer of skin including the OOM on the incidence of perioperative complications, operation time, long-term postoperative morphology, and function of the lower eyelid.

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2019 Nov 3;64(5-6):459-469. Epub 2019 Aug 3.

3, rue de Lasteyrie, 75116 Paris, France. Electronic address:

Secondary surgeries of the external ear can be divided into two categories: secondary otoplasties and secondary ear reconstructions. The most frequent causes of secondary otoplasties are a recurrence, an over-corrected ear, an off-center ear, a prominent lobule, and finally chronic ear pain. Recurrence of the prominence can be treated by a new posterior stitch otoplasty, an Earfold clip, or a frame stitch. Read More

Huge Radicular Cyst of the Maxilla Treated with Complete Resection and Immediate Reconstruction by Rib Bone Graft.

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2019 Sep 20;18(3):378-381. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Ajou University School of Medicine, 164, World cup-ro, Yeongtong-gu, Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do 16499 Republic of Korea.

Radicular cysts are the most common odontogenic cystic lesions that occur in jaws. They rarely become problematic and are incidentally found on routine dental radiographs. As they appear to reach a considerable size prior to medical attention due to their insidious and destructive growth characteristics during the intraosseous stage, treatment often requires extensive cystectomy and skeletal reconstruction.
