Gender Reassignment: Feminization and Masculinization of the Neck.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Oct 10;45(4):635-645. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Division of Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Transgender Surgery, Department of Surgery, LGBTQ Center for Wellness, Gender and Sexual Health, University of Miami Hospital, Jackson Memorial Hospital, 1120 Northwest 14th Street, Miami, FL 33136, USA.

Facial stigmata associated with one's assigned gender can be very distressing for the gender dysphoric patient. The lower face and neck contain several structures that play a significant role in their ability to "pass" as their desired gender. Clinical recognition and modification of these structures will allow the patient to have facial and neck features that are consistent with their desired gender. Read More

Short Scar Neck Lift: Neck Lift Using a Submental Incision Only.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Oct;45(4):585-600

Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery, 450 Sutter Street Suite 2222, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA.

For a subset of patients poor neck contour exists as a largely isolated problem and can be treated with a short scar neck lift procedure whereby no skin is removed. The procedure is performed through a submental incision without any removal of skin and relies on modification of deep-layer structures to improve neck contour. "Excess" skin is allowed to redistribute itself over the increased neck surface area created when deep-layer maneuvers are performed, neck contour is improved, and the cervicomental angle deepened.

Management of the Platysma in Neck Lift.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Oct;45(4):555-570

Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery, 450 Sutter Street, Suite 2222, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA.

Traditional techniques to treat platysma bands relied on corset tightening of the anterior platysma muscle borders or rigid suspension of the lateral platysma borders to sternocleidomastoid or periauricular fascia. Although results seemed good, recurrence was common and the ultimate outcome was poor. Despite modifications, they have largely failed, and for surgeons seeking to rejuvenate the face, treating platysma bands remains a most frustrating and perplexing problem in neck surgery. Read More

A Comparative Analysis of Electric and Radiofrequency Microneedling Devices on the Market.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Sep;17(9):1010-1013

Microneedling was first described in 1995 by Orentreich and Orentreich for the treatment of atrophic scars and wrinkles.1 The local injury induced by dermal penetration of microneedling causes release of growth factors such as transforming growth factor (TGF)-α, TGF-β, and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). This stimulates collagen and elastin fiber production as well as capillary formation, ultimately leading to tissue remodeling. Read More

Glabellar Rejuvenation in Forehead Lift: Reversed Periosteum or Dermal Fat Graft to Cover Pedicled Glabellar Flap.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Sep;29(6):1558-1561

The Third Department, Plastic Surgery Hospital, Peking Union Medical College and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China.

Forehead aging is characterized by wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity, brow ptosis, and soft-tissue atrophy. For patients with prominent rhytids and marked brow ptosis, forehead lift is still the most effective treatment with a persisting result. In order to eliminate the glabellar wrinkles, forehead lift usually requires the removal of the corrugator supercilii muscle and procerus, which can lead to glabellar flattening or depression.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Apr 9;34(2):109-113. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Otolaryngology Division, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Permanente Medical Group, Oakland, California.

Aesthetic ideals regarding proportion and balance of the face have existed for centuries. The upper third of the face, including the brow, forehead, and temple, provides an important contribution to the overall facial aesthetic. This is especially true given how the brow frames the eyes, and the eyes serve as the key focal point in our interactions with others. Read More

Forces Required to Pull the Superficial Fascia in Facelifts.

Plast Surg (Oakv) 2018 Feb 9;26(1):40-45. Epub 2018 Jan 9.

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

Purpose: The aims of this study were to characterize the histology of the sideburn and cheek area and to measure the force required to pull the superficial fascia (SF) of Asians in facelift procedures.

Methods: The hemiface of a formalin-fixed Korean male adult cadaver (77 years old) was used to study the histology of the sideburn and cheek area. In 42 patients during facelift procedures, the force needed to pull the overlying skin at the midpoint between the sideburn and nasolabial fold 2 mm was measured using a tensiometer. Read More

Facelifts: Improving the long-term outcomes of lower face and neck rejuvenation surgery: The lower face and neck rejuvenation combined method.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Apr 2;46(4):697-704. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Maxillofacial Surgery, Henri Mondor Hospital, UPEC, University Paris Est Creteil, Val de Marne, 51 Avenue du Marechal de Lattre de Tassigny, 94000, Creteil, France.

Determining which facelift procedures yield the most long-term rejuvenating effects and stability over time is an important question in cosmetic surgery: does radical and invasive surgery produce the most long-lasting results? The experience of our team suggests that using a combination of various techniques (liposuction, lipectomy, myotomies, suspensions, tissular induction techniques) appears to be essential to achieve satisfactory, lasting results. In this paper, we describe the lower facelift and neck rejuvenation combined method. To assess the outcomes of this technique, we conducted a prospective study of 44 patients treated at our hospital by the same surgeon between 2012 and 2015. Read More

Surgical Resection of Vascular Lesions Involving the Buccal Fat Pad.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Jul;29(5):e459-e461

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division, Hospital General "Dr Manuel Gea Gonzalez," Mexico City, Mexico.

Vascular abnormalities are localized structural irregularities, which are performed during vasculogenesis, angiogenesis, and lymphangiogenesis. The involvement of soft tissue in such vascular malformations is frequent; however, the compromising of the buccal fat pads (Bichat bags) is uncommon, even in specialized centers, such as the plastic clinic of our institution, in which very few patients have been reported in the literature. The purpose of this article is to present a series of 2 patients in which vascular malformations involving the buccal fat pads, which were extracted by intraoral approach. Read More

Ligaments of the Face: Past, Present, and Future.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 May;29(3):800-803

Choi's Aesthetic Plastic Surgical Clinic, Seoul, Korea.

The aim of this study is to search for the origin of the term "ligament' in the face, present its status, and suggest a principle to rectify the use of unclear terminology.The structure that connects the zygoma to the skin was first presented by McGregor (1959). Kaye (1981), in describing his "extended facelift," wrote that the adherent area of the cheek over the malar eminence (McGregor's patch) usually requires sharp dissection. Read More

Thread-Lift Sutures: Still in the Lift? A Systematic Review of the Literature.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 03;141(3):341e-347e

Heerenveen, Zwolle, Amsterdam, and Groningen, The Netherlands; Kortrijk, Belgium; and Verona, Italy From the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Groningen, University Medical Centre Groningen; Amsterdam Plastic Surgery; and Bergman Clinics; the Department of Plastic Surgery, AZ Groeninge; and the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Verona.

Background: In 2006, Villa et al. published a review article concerning the use of thread-lift sutures and concluded that the technique was still in its infancy but had great potential to become a useful and effective procedure for nonsurgical lifting of sagged facial tissues. As 11 years have passed, the authors now performed again a systematic review to determine the real scientific current state of the art on the use of thread-lift sutures. Read More

Indications and Use of Isotretinoin in Facial Plastic Surgery.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Feb 6;34(1):75-81. Epub 2018 Feb 6.

Skin and Face Clinic, Baden-Baden, Germany.

Isotretinoin is a first generation retinoid with pleiotropic effects on keratinocyte differentiation, proliferation, and activity of sebaceous glands. For years, there has been intense debate on whether the use of isotretinoin combined with cosmetic or surgical procedures is safe and potentially more efficient than either therapy alone. Due to delays in wound healing and keloid formation, conservative recommendations were not to combine isotretinoin with any plastic surgery or local treatment at 6 to 12 months after discontinuation of the drug.

Surgical Approach to the Thick Nasolabial Folds, Jowls and Heavy Neck-How to Approach and Suspend the Facial Ligaments.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Feb 6;34(1):59-65. Epub 2018 Feb 6.

Başkent University, Istanbul Hospital, Altunizade, Istanbul, Turkey.

Patients with thick skin typically present with a redundant, baggy, lax skin envelope together with prominent nasolabial folds, jowls, and a heavy neck. Durable and natural-appearing rejuvenation is not possible unless the deformities are addressed adequately and harmoniously in these patients. Traditional superficial musculoaponeurotic system techniques do not include surgical release of the zygomatic cutaneous ligaments and repositioning of descendent malar fat pad, and may lead to an unbalanced, unnatural appearance and the lateral sweep phenomenon.

Management of the Heavy Brows: Long-Term Surgical Options.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Feb 6;34(1):36-42. Epub 2018 Feb 6.

Department of Facial Plastic Surgery, Cirugia Plastica Facial, Mexico, Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico.

One of the first signs of aging belongs to the upper third of the face. With the aging process, mestizo facial features become more prominent. The thicker skin-soft tissue envelope (S-STE) has a tendency to sag more, hooding of the eyelids tends to be more pronounced, and there is a tendency for eyebrows to droop, specifically the tail of the brows, because of the loss of support.

Validation of the Modified Surgeon Periorbital Rating of Edema and Ecchymosis (SPREE) Questionnaire: A Prospective Analysis of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Procedures.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Feb 11;34(1):95-101. Epub 2018 Jan 11.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Although periorbital edema and ecchymosis are commonly encountered after facial plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures, there is currently no validated grading scale to qualify these findings. In this study, the modified "Surgeon Periorbital Rating of Edema and Ecchymosis (SPREE)" questionnaire is used as a grading scale for patients undergoing facial plastic surgery procedures. This article aims to validate a uniform grading scale for periorbital edema and ecchymosis using the modified SPREE questionnaire in the postoperative period. Read More
