Development of Poly(HEMA-Am) Polymer Hydrogel Filler for Soft Tissue Reconstruction by Facile Polymerization.

Polymers (Basel) 2018 Jul 13;10(7). Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Department of Transdisciplinary Studies, Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology, Seoul National University, Seoul 08826, Korea.

The number of breast reconstruction surgeries has been increasing due to the increase in mastectomies. Surgical implants (the standard polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) implants) are widely used to reconstruct breast tissues, however, it can cause problems such as adverse immune reactions, fibrosis, rupture, and additional surgery. Hence, polymeric fillers have recently garnered increasing attention as strong alternatives for breast reconstruction materials. Read More

Minimally Invasive Facial Cosmetic Procedures.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

PLLC Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, 969 Park Ave Suite 1G New York, NY 10028, USA; Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA.

Minimally invasive procedures including neurotoxins, dermal fillers, deoxycholic acid, lasers, peels, and microneedling offer powerful, less permanent adjuncts to surgery that are highly effective in select patients. Injectables and skin resurfacing techniques target facial irregularities including wrinkles and fine lines, decrease in volume and contour, and unwanted fat. Determining the best approach for a given patient involves careful consideration of the patient's health conditions, unique anatomic characteristics, tissue quality, and desired results. Read More

Surgical techniques for cosmetic facial rejuvenation, antiaging concerns, and the optimization of facial beauty can be nuanced and complex. Generally speaking, surgical interventions, including facelift, necklift, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty, are the gold standard approaches for the enhancement of facial features. A detailed understanding of facial anatomy, aesthetics, and techniques is necessary to master these approaches. Read More

Nonsurgical Chin and Jawline Augmentation Using Calcium Hydroxylapatite and Hyaluronic Acid Fillers.

Facial Plast Surg 2019 Apr 3;35(2):140-148. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

David and Rossi Cosmetic Surgery, La Jolla, CA, USA.

The shape of the jawline from the mandibular angle to its most forward point at the chin has a profound effect on an individual's appearance and is an area of concern for many seeking esthetic procedures. Dermal filler injections alone or in combination with other modalities, such as skin tightening energy devices, allow enhancement of the jawline while avoiding the need for surgical procedures. The authors introduce new anatomical zones and nomenclature to enhance safety and outcome when enhancing the jawline. Read More

Authors:

Toxicol Ind Health 2019 Mar 13;35(3):189-195. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

1,1,1,3,3,3-Hexamethyldisilazane (HMDZ) is used industrially to treat the surface of silica, as an intermediate adhesion promoter or silylating agent in the semiconductor industry, as a chemical modifier of inorganic fillers, and as a water scavenger silicone sealant. In animal studies, HMDZ is considered to be slightly to at most moderately toxic following acute administration via oral, dermal, and inhalation routes of exposure. HMDZ is neither an eye irritant nor was it dermally irritating under semiocclusive conditions; however, it caused dermal necrosis in two studies under occlusive conditions. Read More

Dermatologic care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons: Epidemiology, screening, and disease prevention.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 Mar;80(3):591-602

Department of Dermatology, Kaiser Permanente, San Francisco, California.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons face important health issues relevant to dermatologists. Men who have sex with men (MSM) are at higher risk of certain infectious diseases, including HIV, syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, and invasive meningococcal disease, and might be at higher risk of non-infectious conditions, including skin cancer. Recommendations for preventive health care, including screening for HIV and other STDs, sexual health-related vaccinations, and HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, differ for MSM compared with non-MSM.

Authors:
Georgia S K Lee

J Cosmet Dermatol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

TLC Lifestyle Practice, Scotts Medical Center at Pacific Plaza, Singapore City, Singapore.

A handheld 2 MHz ultrasound Doppler device determines the presence or absence of pulsatile arterial flow immediately beneath the selected site of entry for dermal filler injection. In combination with near infrared technology to map out superficial veins, mishaps from intravascular injections may be reduced. A total of 448 patients aged range between 21 and 74 years, with 168 out of total of 1019 treatment sites having both infrared and ultrasound Doppler assisted preinjection mapping were reviewed.

A randomized controlled trial testing a hyaluronic acid spacer injection for skin toxicity reduction of brachytherapy accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI): a study protocol.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, PO Box 5201, 3008 AE, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: Accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) is a treatment option for selected early stage breast cancer patients. Some APBI techniques lead to skin toxicity with the skin dose as main risk factor. We hypothesize that a spacer injected between the skin and target volume reduces the skin dose and subsequent toxicity in permanent breast seed implant (PBSI) patients. Read More

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2018 23;11:603-611. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Institute of Medical and Biomedical Education, St George's University of London, London, UK.

The recent rapid growth in dermal filler use, in conjunction with inadequate product and injector control, has heralded a concerning increase in filler complications. The 10-point plan has been developed to minimize complications through careful preconsideration of causative factors, categorized as patient, product, and procedure related. Patient-related factors include history, which involves a preprocedural consultation with careful elucidation of skin conditions, systemic disease, medications, and previous cosmetic procedures.

Bruising after dermal filler and neuromodulator injections is a common side effect and can have durations of 1 to 2 weeks. While it ultimately resolves, faster resolution can produce better outcomes for patients and also make patients more likely to return for future treatments. We report the successful reduction in bruising following injections of fillers with an intense pulsed light source. Read More

Detection of a new reaction by-product in BDDE cross-linked autoclaved hyaluronic acid hydrogels by LC-MS analysis.

Med Devices (Auckl) 2018 15;11:367-376. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Scientific Department, Skin Tech Pharma Group, Castello D'Empúries, Cataluña, Spain,

Background: Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring polysaccharide, is used in the production of dermal fillers for esthetic purposes. As it has a few days of half-life in human tissues, HA-based dermal filler is chemically modified to increase its lifetime in the body. The most common modification used in commercial HA-based filler is the cross-linking of HA chains using 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) as cross-linking agent. Read More

Department of Family Medicine, University of Kansas School of Medicine, 3901 Rainbow Boulevard, Kansas City, KS 66160, USA. Electronic address:

Plastic surgery is a broad field, including maxillofacial surgery, reconstruction after injuries, hand surgery, and skin flaps and grafts, but the most common procedures for women are liposuction and body contouring, breast surgery, and facial cosmetic procedures. Techniques of face and brow lifts, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty are discussed as well as botulinum toxin and filler injections, and laser and pulsed light techniques that may delay or eliminate the need for surgery. Comparison of the surgeries for breast reconstruction, reduction, augmentation, and mastopexy is discussed. Read More
