Facial Plast Surg 2022 Jun 16. Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Facial Plastic Surgery, FACEISTANBUL, istanbul, Turkey.

Facelift techniques can be classified according to the depth and extent of the dissection applied. Imbrication and plication of the SMAS referred to as "SMAS lifts" or "classical facelifts" are the most commonly used techniques. Plication techniques involve in-folding of the SMAS and suture suspension without any SMAS incision whereas imbrication techniques involve a SMAS incision with a portion of the SMAS either removed or transposed with or without limited subSMAS dissection.

Endoscopic Browlift in Patients With Receding Hairlines.

J Craniofac Surg 2022 Mar-Apr 01;33(2):615-619

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Mayo Clinic.

Abstract: Patients with receding or high hairlines have traditionally been considered unfavorable candidates for endoscopic brow lift as this can further lengthen the hairline. We analyzed outcomes in patients that underwent a novel endoscopic brow lift technique with placement of incisions and anchoring Endotine Forehead Devices (CoApt Systems Inc, Palo Alto, CA, USA) directly at the natural forehead crease lines, in an effort to minimize elevation of the hairline, whereas providing well-hidden scars. We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent this new Endotine and incision placement between 2016 and 2020. Read More

Cable-Stayed Face Lift: An Innovative Short-Scar Lift for Better Correction of Nasolabial Folds in East Asians.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Sep;148(3):543-547

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine; and the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy, Graduate School of Arts and Science, Columbia University.

Background: The improvement of nasolabial folds by either lateral superficial musculoaponeurotic system rhytidectomy or minimal access cranial suspension lift alone is commonly performed, but patient satisfaction is often limited in East Asians. An innovative technique, termed the cable-stayed face lift, which combines the strengths of lateral superficial musculoaponeurotic system rhytidectomy and minimal access cranial suspension lift, was developed for improved results.

Methods: Between 2016 and 2019, 20 cable-stayed face lifts were performed in a single hospital. Read More

Defining a Safe Corridor of Cervical Branch Preservation in Lateral Platysmaplasty Surgery During Facial Rejuvenation Surgery.

Aesthet Surg J 2022 01;42(2):NP93-NP98

Dr Saleh is a consultant plastic surgeon, Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Newcastle-upon-Tyne,UK.

Background: During rhytidectomies, the cervical branch of the facial nerve (CBFN) can easily be encountered, and potentially injured, when releasing the cervical retaining ligaments in the lateral neck. This nerve has been shown to occasionally co-innervate the depressor anguli oris muscle, and damage to it can thus potentially compromise outcomes with a postoperative palsy.

Objectives: The authors sought to examine the lateral cervical anatomy specific to the CBFN to ascertain if the position of the nerve can be predicted, thereby enhancing safety of the platysmal flap separation and dissection from this lateral zone of adhesion. Read More

Superficial Fascia of the Cheek Shown in P45 Sheet Plastination.

J Craniofac Surg 2021 Mar-Apr 01;32(2):759-761

Department of Plastic Surgery, Inha University School of Medicine, Incheon, South Korea.

Abstract: In this paper, the authors attempted to determine the extent of the superficial fascia of the cheek using P45 sheet plastination.Three head and neck specimens were sliced in horizontal (46 slices), coronal (30 slices), and sagittal (29 slices) sections using P45 sheet plastination (special polyester resin corrosion-resistant method designed to preserve biological sectional specimens in situ). Through slicing, bleaching, dehydration, casting, forced impregnation, curing, cutting, and sanding the molds, P45 plastination sheets provided good light transmission, allowing the internal structures within the sheet to reveal clearly in their intact form.

Special Considerations in Chinese Face-Lift Procedure: Insights From a 15-Year Experience of 1026 Cases.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 03;86(3S Suppl 2):S244-S252

Section of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Background: There is extensive literature on different face-lift techniques; however, few articles published in the English language address the particularities of the face-lift for Chinese patients. Because of differences in facial anatomy, facial aging, and patient expectations, facial rejuvenation procedures for Chinese patients can be quite different from those of White patients.

Methods: The study includes 1026 consecutive primary face-lift cases performed by the senior author (D. Read More

Division in Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Department of Oral Biology, Human Identification Research Center, BK21 PLUS Project, Yonsei University College of Dentistry, Seoul, South Korea.

Introduction: To reduce complications caused by the procedure, the target layer for thread lifting should be the superficial fat or superficial musculoaponeurotic system of the face. The aim of this study was to establish the thicknesses of the facial skin and superficial fat using a 3D scanning system to provide basic clinical data for thread lifting.
