Straight-Line Vector Planning for Optimal Results With Silhouette InstaLift in Minimally Invasive Tissue Repositioning for Facial Rejuvenation.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Jul;17(7):786-793

Background: Absorbable suspension sutures for tissue repositioning represent a minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. With 2015 FDA 510(k) approval of Silhouette InstaLift™ (Sinclair Pharma, Irvine, CA), a completely absorbable device comprised of 82% PLLA/18% PLGA sutures and bi-directional cones, came the challenge of developing optimal technique for achieving effective, precise, and durable tissue repositioning. Here, the authors discuss the importance of straight-line vector planning (SLVP) and positioning of the suture perpendicular to the plane to be elevated in obtaining optimal results for tissue repositioning.

Authors:
C Le Louarn

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2015 Oct 16;60(5):454-61. Epub 2015 Sep 16.

59, rue Spontini, 75116 Paris, France. Electronic address:

The asymmetry created by the facial palsy is of course a cause of demand for facelift surgery. As this lifting action is specific and different from the standard procedures, 3 zones of analysis are proposed: first the frontal and temporal areas with the direct eyebrow lift, second the neck and jawline with action on the depressor anguli oris for the non-paralyzed side and the anterior sub SMAS dissection and third the midface. A new and more simple technique of concentric malar lift is proposed. Read More

Clinical studies of the relationship between the complication of cervicofacial rhytidectomy postoperative nausea and vomiting and different rhytidectomy sites.

J Craniofac Surg 2015 Mar;26(2):e168-72

From the *Plastic Surgery Hospital, Peking Union Medical College; and †Plastic Surgery Department, An Zhen Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

Background: It was demonstrated that there are many complications following cervicofacial rhytidectomy, such as hematoma, edema, seromas, ecchymosis, nerve injury, hypertrophic scarring, contour irregularities, infection, nausea, vomiting, and so on. Accordingly, there is a lot of reports about the treatment of complications following rhytidectomy; nonetheless, we find that there is a trifle of research about the complication of postoperative nausea and vomiting. Thus, this study analyzes the cause of postoperative nausea and vomiting and the relationship between it and different sites. Read More

Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir 2014 Aug 27;46(4):224-33. Epub 2014 Aug 27.

Plastic Surgery, Villa Bella Clinic, Saló, Italy.

In the last few years, surgery of the ageing face seems to have shifted from tissue uplifting and tightening to mere filling. We do not agree with this trend. We are positive that ageing brings about 2 basic phenomena: on one hand bone and fat volume reduction, whilst on the other a deterioration of the skin lining (elastosis) leading to an increase in its compliance and extension.

Redraping of the fat and eye lift for the correction of the tear trough.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2014 Oct 10;42(7):1497-502. Epub 2014 May 10.

Artion Plastic Surgery Center, 11 D. Vassiliou St., N. Psyhiko, Athens, 15451, Greece.

Introduction: Tear trough deformity is very difficult to correct. It can appear at relatively young age and it deepens over the years due to laxity and loss of structural support. We describe a technique for the correction of tear trough deformity and mid-face laxity by means of redraping blepharoplasty and lateral "eye lift". Read More

Vertical subperiosteal mid-face-lift for treatment of malar festoons.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2011 Aug 17;35(4):522-9. Epub 2011 Mar 17.

University Hospital and Medical School of Goettingen, Robert-Koch-Street 40, 37075 Goettingen, Germany.

Background: Malar mounds may be accentuated by chronic lid edema, with the development from malar edema to malar mounds and finally to malar festoons. Because standard techniques do not seem effective and not specifically proposed for the treatment of malar festoons, subperiosteal vertical upper-midface lift associated with lower blepharoplasty overcomes these shortcomings.

Methods: Twelve patients (3 males and 9 females, age = 47 ± 6 years) underwent video-assisted endoscopic subperiosteal vertical upper-midface lift (SUM-lift) in conjunction with a lower blepharoplasty between 2006 and 2007 for treatment of malar festoons. Read More

The S-Plus lift: a short-scar, long-flap rhytidectomy.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2010 Oct 29;92(7):577-82. Epub 2010 Jun 29.

Division of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, The George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA; Center for Cosmetic Surgery & The Washington Hair Institute, Washington, DC, USA.

Introduction: As rhytidectomy is one of the most elective surgical procedures, there is a strong trend toward less aggressive operative techniques. The authors introduce the S-Plus lift, a 'long flap' superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS) imbrication technique that diminishes risks, decreases recovery time, and yields long-lasting results.

Patients And Methods: This paper describes a novel approach to mid-facial rejuvenation that combines the limited incision of an S-lift with two SMASectomies, purse-string suture imbrication of the extended supraplatysmal plane (ESP) and SMAS, and malar soft tissue suspension. Read More

Section of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Michigan, 1500 East Medical Center Drive, 1904 Taubman Center, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-5312, USA.

The extreme interest in developing new surgical approaches to rhytidectomy and to refining those techniques over the last two decades has resulted in considerable improvement in surgical results. This has taken the form of a more natural and youthful restoration of the face by together lifting forehead, midface, and lower face. This approach produces a more harmonious balance of the upper and lower portions of the face than was possible before the introduction of mid-facelifting techniques. Read More

Functional anatomy indicates the specificities of the most mobile zone of the face. Ageing process analysis, with the help of CT scan and MRI, confirm the validity of the Face recurve concept: the repetition of the contraction of certain fascicles of the mimic muscles is responsible for the deep fat diminution. For the first time, two fascicles of the orbicularis oculi muscle, malar part, are demonstrated to cause the recession of the inferior orbital rim and of the mid part of the malar bone. Read More

Recent advances in the technology of implant designs and shapes, as well as improved understanding of the principles of facial aesthetics, give the plastic surgeon, for the first time, tools to precisely and permanently change faces in specific areas and with minimum morbidity. Cosmetic facial surgeons must learn and understand the zonal anatomy of the malar-midface region to be prepared for growing patient demands regarding analysis and alteration of facial cheek contours. This article describes and illustrates contemporary technology that uses alloplastic implants throughout the face. Read More

[Subperiosteal midface lifting].

Authors:
A Bonnefon

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2006 Apr 24;51(2):170-7. Epub 2006 Apr 24.

Since 1990, when we had found the solutions about the oval of the face and the neck problems by the vertical lift, our whole attention was focused on the midface. We have been through the "cheek lift", high SMAS incision. We followed Oscar Ramirez and Richard Anderson in the subperiosteal undermining of the mid face under endoscopic control by a buccal and temporal incision. Read More

Circumauricular incision (water-drop shape) for mid- to lower face lift.

Authors:
Ling-Fen Ou

Plast Reconstr Surg 2005 Jul;116(1):308-15

Division of Plastic Surgery, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan, ROC.

The conventional method of mid- to lower face rhytidectomy that involves removing a strip of occipital scalp always creates a conspicuous transverse scar crossing the postauricular skin, which may leave a stair-step deformity at the occipital hairline. The author has designed a new face lift method using a circumauricular incision, shaped like a water droplet, that curves around the auricle. In this new method, the upper part of the "O" shape is modified to the tip of a water droplet. Read More

[Botulinum toxin and wrinkles: few side effects and effective combining procedures with other treatments].

Authors:
B Ascher B Rossi

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2004 Oct;49(5):537-52

Chirurgie esthétique et réparatrice, clinique Iéna, 11, rue Fresnel, 75116, Paris, France.

Chemical denervation, through the biologic effect of botulinum toxin, provides a very effective, low risk, lasting treatment for hyperkinetic wrinkles, mainly of the upper face. Patients with such rhytides, when treated with surgical myotomies or other alternative medical treatments, are at greater risk and with potentially less lasting results. Botulinum toxin has been widely used for the last 20 years in many areas of medicine. Read More

Private Practice, Kings Mountain, NC 28086, USA.

Mid-face rejuvenation has long been a difficult area for aesthetic facial surgeons. In this article the author reviews the techniques currently available and examines in-depth two techniques that he feels are noteworthy for their efficacy in improving mid-face aging. One of these techniques is the "SMAS division mid-face lift" which targets aging of the mid-face associated with a deep nasolabial fold. Read More

Zygomaticus major advancement as an adjunct to lower blepharoplasty.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2002 Jan-Feb;26(1):26-30

Sagging of the mid-face, deep nasolabial folds, and flat malar eminence often compromise the rejuvenation effect produced by upper and lower blepharoplasty. A simple surgical technique based on advancement of the zygomaticus major origin was developed as an adjunct to lower blepharoplasty to address this problem. The technique is predominantly suitable for ambulatory surgery setup and can be easily performed under local anesthesia and sedation. Read More

New eyebrow lift technique using a semiautomatic suturing device (maniceps) for patients with facial paralysis.

Ann Plast Surg 2000 Dec;45(6):601-6

Division of Plastic Surgery, Jichi Medical School, Tochigi, Japan.

Direct browlift and the traditional fascial suspension technique sometimes leave a prominent scar above the eyebrow. Coronal browlift, mid-forehead browlift, and endoscopic browlift leave no prominent scar, but they are sometimes not suitable for patients with facial paralysis because they have been developed for rejuvenative surgery. The authors present a new browlift fascial suspension technique for patients with facial paralysis. Read More

The changing role of platysma in face lifting.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2000 Feb;105(2):764-75; discussion 776-7

Plastic Surgery Division, Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, at the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro Medical School, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Since the 1970s, surgical procedures on platysma muscle, aiming to achieve better results in face lifting, became popular and turned out to be an important surgical step for the plastic surgeon. Many plastic surgeons have contributed to the topic throughout these years, as several articles on the subject have been published. Articles dealing with platysma muscle still bring great interest among plastic surgeons. Read More

Vertical preperiosteal rejuvenation of the frame of the eyelids and midface.

Authors:
U T Hinderer

Plast Reconstr Surg 1999 Oct;104(5):1482-99; discussion 1500-1

Clinica Mirasierra, Madrid, Spain.

Aging usually shows first on the eyelids, the periocular frame, and the midface, which is the anterior mobile area of facial expression. The author, therefore, recommends performing a blepharoplasty and rhytidectomy of the upper two-thirds of the face in patients from their mid-30s on. Instead of a subcutaneous approach, correction can be performed at the deep level, with either a lateral or a vertical approach to the midface. Read More

Modifications in endoscopic facelifts.

Ann Plast Surg 1999 Jun;42(6):638-43

Istanbul Cranioplast, Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery Clinic and Florence Nightingale Metropolitan Hospital, Turkey.

Since 1996, 72 patients (66 women and 6 men) have undergone endoscopic upper and midface rejuvenation. Sixteen of these patients had concomitant lower face rejuvenation at the same time. The patients were operated using a personal endoscopic technique, including biplanar endoscopic dissection (subgaleal and subcutaneous) at the forehead and temporal regions, excision of a galeal strip approximately 1 cm in thickness (to achieve a stable forehead lift), and a lower blepharoplasty incision for midface lifting and fixation of the malar fat pad.

Endoscopic subcutaneous and SMAS facelift without preauricular scars.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 1999 Mar-Apr;23(2):119-24

Since the advent of endoscopic techniques for facial rejuvenation, we have seen an increasing number of patients asking for facial improvement who refuse a conventional full facelift. During the last 3 years, in seeking to obtain good results for this group of patients with minimally invasive techniques, we have been using a subcutaneous approach for lifting of the mid- and lower face. This subcutaneous temporofacial lift combined with SMAS suspension, which resembles our conventional approach of rhytidectomy but avoids preauricular scars, is an excellent approach for selected cases.
