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.

Expert Consensus on Achieving Optimal Outcomes With Absorbable Suspension Suture Technology for Tissue Repositioning and Facial Recontouring.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 06;17(6):647-655

A complete approach to facial rejuvenation includes restoration of the skin's surface, relaxation of muscles that contribute to hyperkinetic movement, revolumization, and repositioning/recontouring of descended tissues and fat pads. After receiving 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015, the Silhouette InstaLift™ absorbable suspension suture became the only available non-surgical technique for repositioning of facial tissue. In January 2017, a consensus paper presented a review of the literature on the efficacy and safety of absorbable suspension sutures and provided information on treatment procedures. 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

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.

Effect of Use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in Skin with Intrinsic Aging Process.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Feb;38(3):321-328

Regenerative Surgery Unit, San Francesco Clinic, Verona, Italy.

Background: In previous papers, we demonstrated that the treatment of human photoaged skin with stromal-vascular fraction-enriched fat or expanded adipose-derived stem cells showed a decrease of elastosis and the appearance of new oxytalan elastic fibers in dermis and an increase in the vascular network. The utilization of fat plus platelet-rich plasma (PRP) led to an increase in the vascular permeability and reactivity of the nervous component.

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to analyze the histologic and ultrastructural changes of human skin after the injection of only PRP in the retroauricular area that was not exposed to sun and did not present the photoaging process, in comparison with our previous results. Read More

[Benefits of volumetric to facial rejuvenation. Part 1: Fat grafting].

Authors:
P Bui C Lepage

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2017 Oct 5;62(5):532-549. Epub 2017 Sep 5.

Hôpital américain de Paris, 63, boulevard Victor-Hugo, 92200 Neuilly-sur-Seine, France; 90, boulevard Flandrin, 75116 Paris, France.

For a number of years, a volumetric approach using autologous fat injection has been implemented to improve cosmetic outcome in face-lift procedures and to achieve lasting rejuvenation. Autologous fat as filling tissue has been used in plastic surgery since the late 19th century, but has only recently been associated to face lift procedures. The interest of the association lies on the one hand in the pathophysiology of facial aging, involving skin sag and loss of volume, and on the other hand in the tissue induction properties of grafted fat, "rejuvenating" the injected area.

Cheek and Chin Implants to Enhance Facelift Results.

Facial Plast Surg 2017 Jun 1;33(3):279-284. Epub 2017 Jun 1.

Facial Plastic Surgery Associates, 6655 Travis Street, Suite 900, Houston, Texas.

The traditional rhytidectomy addresses facial and neck aging as it relates to soft tissue laxity. The modern volumetric facelift provides optimal results by addressing not only skin laxity but also the loss of volume secondary to tissue atrophy and bony resorption. While multiple techniques including fat grafting, dermal fillers, and tissue resuspension are used to correct the tissue loss, alloplastic midface augmentation remains the most permanent method.

Treatment of Anterior Neck Aging without a Submental Approach: Lateral Skin-Platysma Displacement, a New and Proven Technique for Platysma Bands and Skin Laxity.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Feb;139(2):308-321

Rome, Italy From the University of Padua; and private practice.

Background: A high rate of recurrence of anterior platysma bands and anterior skin laxity was reported at the 1-year follow-up of 150 patients who underwent complete neck undermining and full-width platysma transection for neck rejuvenation. The authors propose a new technique-lateral skin-platysma displacement-to treat these two aesthetic problems using only a lateral approach to avoid "opening" the anterior neck. The authors' objective was to compare outcomes following full-width platysma transection technique and lateral skin-platysma displacement technique in terms of patient satisfaction, complications, and long-term effectiveness in the treatment of bands and anterior skin laxity.

Total Composite Flap Facelift and the Deep-Plane Transition Zone: A Critical Consideration in SMAS-Release Midface Lifting.

Authors:
Marc Mani

Aesthet Surg J 2016 May 1;36(5):533-45. Epub 2016 Mar 1.

Dr Mani is a plastic surgeon in private practice in Beverly Hills, CA.

Background: Recent anatomic studies suggest the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer attenuates in the midface. This led the author to switch from a bilamellar high SMAS dissection to a "total composite flap" technique, preserving skin and SMAS/platysma as one layer in a critical "deep-plane transition zone" (DTZ) lateral to the zygomaticus major muscle. This allows traction on the SMAS to translate to the malar fat pad via a "cantilever bridge" effect, which is lost when skin is undermined in the DTZ. Read More

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

Willow Bend Wellness Center, 6101 Chapel Hill Boulevard, Ste.101, Plano, TX 75093, USA.

The authors have been performing autologous fat grafting for facial rejuvenation for 15 years and the procedure has evolved significantly during this time. In the beginning, the authors were primarily transferring to nasolabial folds, lips, and cheeks and found that the only patients who were satisfied with the procedure were cheek patients. To this day, the authors maintain that for isolated filling of lips and nasolabial folds, off the- shelf fillers are a better alternative. Read More

The combination of rhytidoplasty and fractional CO2 laser therapy in the treatment of facial aging.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2014 Oct 16;38(5):839-48. Epub 2014 Jul 16.

Institute of Medicine and Dermatology (ISMD), São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Background: Facial aging is a natural biological process with symptoms such as sagging tissue, accentuated lines, furrows, wrinkles, dyschromias, and loss of facial volume. Rhytidectomy alone often fails to achieve a patient's expected goals, which is why there is a high demand for adjunct laser skin treatment.

Methods: From January 2007 to February 2013, a total of 80 patients with skin types Fitzpatrick I-IV underwent large undermined cutaneous flap rhytidectomy and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) plicature plus hyaluronic acid injection on the nasolabial folds and lips and concomitant Lumenis UltraPulse CO2 Active FX total ablation mode resurfacing of nonundermined skin.

Fractional carbon dioxide laser resurfacing of rhytides and photoageing: a prospective study using profilometric analysis.

Br J Dermatol 2014 Apr;170(4):858-65

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauss-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: Results of profilometric skin analyses after fractional ablative skin resurfacing are not only important for evaluating the efficacy of this therapy but are also relevant for physicians practising laser and aesthetic skin therapy. Currently, objective measurements of wrinkle reduction after fractional CO2 laser resurfacing are scarce, and it remains unclear whether the various facial areas respond differently to this therapy.

Objectives: To measure wrinkle parameters, the homogeneity of melanin distribution and skin roughness in four facial areas (periorbital, perioral, forehead, cheeks) before and after three fractional CO2 laser treatments. Read More

Correction of deep static glabellar lines with acellular dermal matrix insertion.

Ann Plast Surg 2014 Dec;73(6):627-30

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Hanyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

The glabellar rhytid has not only dynamic but also static cause, which is usually achieved by injection of filler. Deep glabellar rhytides, however, are difficult to correct with filler. Therefore, the authors introduce a novel method of inserting a small strip of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) underneath the wrinkle line. Read More

Randomized, controlled, phase 3 study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of fibrin sealant VH S/D 4 s-apr (Artiss) to improve tissue adherence in subjects undergoing rhytidectomy.

Aesthet Surg J 2013 May 5;33(4):487-96. Epub 2013 Apr 5.

Baxter Healthcare Corporation, One Baxter Way, Westlake Village, CA 91362-3811 USA.

Background: Suction drains are commonly placed after rhytidectomy to avoid seroma formation that may result from dead spaces between skin layers. Fibrin sealants promote tissue adherence by crosslinking with extracellular matrix proteins, which may reduce the dead space under skin flaps.

Objectives: The authors evaluate the safety and efficacy of the fibrin sealant (FS) VH S/D 4 s-apr (Artiss; Baxter Healthcare Corp, Deerfield, Illinois), added to standard-of-care (SoC) treatment, in improving flap adherence and reducing dead space in patients undergoing rhytidectomy. Read More

Effacing the orbitoglabellar groove with transposed upper eyelid fat.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2013 May-Jun;29(3):220-4

Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, Beverly Hills, California, USA.

Purpose: An age-related depression can develop over the superonasal orbital rim, which the authors have called the "orbitoglabellar groove (OGG)." It is, in part, related to volume loss over the rim as is seen at the lower eyelid/cheek interface (nasojugal groove). An upper eyelid fat pedicle can be transposed over the OGG during standard upper blepharoplasty surgery to reduce this depression. Read More

Eur J Plast Surg 2013 Feb 12;36(2):87-94. Epub 2012 Oct 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Interclinica-Centroplastica, Rua Jardim Botânico 164, Jardim Botânico, Rio de Janeiro Brazil.

BACKGROUND: Patients submitted to rhytidectomy usually relay their desire for briefer surgical procedures and a shorter post-operative period with faster recovery. In view of this, a technique in which the skin of the cervico-mandibular region is not undermined but only detached by blunt dissection was developed. METHODS: A retrospective study of the senior author's experience in eutrophic rhytidoplasty (EUR), the technique proposed herein, for facial rejuvenation was conducted. Read More

The McCollough Facial Rejuvenation System: expanding the scope of a condition-specific algorithm.

Facial Plast Surg 2012 Feb 14;28(1):102-15. Epub 2012 Mar 14.

The McCollough Plastic Surgery Clinic, McCollough Institute for Appearance & Health, Gulf Shores, Alabama 36547, USA.

The ideal facial rejuvenation algorithm is comprised of an appropriate combination of procedures, thoughtfully chosen from an assortment of reliable alternatives, that when skillfully performed provide both short- and long-term enhancement to the undesirable conditions of aging that exists at the time of treatment. In 2010, the senior author published the first scientific article in which a condition-specific classification system and a treatment plan algorithm were applied to the discipline of facial rejuvenation. In the landmark article, the senior author reviewed his surgical experience of more than 5000 face-lifts and grouped patients into five major categories (or stages), based upon the extent of aging identified in various regions of the face and neck and the procedures performed to correct them.

Periorbital rejuvenation to improve the negative vector with blepharoplasty and fat grafting in the malar area.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2011 Nov-Dec;27(6):442-6

Institute of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Dr. Serra-Renom, Hospital Quiron Barcelona, Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain.

Purpose: Periorbital rejuvenation is not achieved by upper and lower blepharoplasty alone; the presence of malar atrophy and the excessive length of the lower eyelid may change the face's oval shape, with the progressive formation of the negative vector. We describe our technique combining blepharoplasty and malar fat grafting to reverse the negative vector.

Methods: After thorough anamnesis, we perform the blepharoplasty and canthopexy if necessary. Read More
