FTO rs9939609 Gene Polymorphism and Obesity: Lack of Association in Kidney Transplantation.

Transplant Proc 2018 Jun 30. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Transplant Unit, S. Salvatore Hospital, L'Aquila, Italy; Department of Clinical Sciences and Biotechnology, University of L'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy.

The fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene is one of the most important obesity susceptibility genes. Some FTO gene polymorphisms have been associated with obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, all conditions for which, after transplant, there is increased susceptibility, due to effects of immunosuppressive regimens. To evaluate whether FTO could be a candidate for targeted preventive intervention in the transplant setting, we investigated whether the common genetic variation, FTO rs9939609T>A, could affect weight gain and risk of cardiovascular complications in kidney transplantation.

Facial Fat Grafting: Why, Where, How, and How Much.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Oct 31;42(5):1278-1297. Epub 2018 Aug 31.

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

Although the importance of volume loss in the aging face is now well recognized and fat grafting has increasingly become an integral part of contemporary facelift procedures, general acceptance of the fat grafting technique is a relatively recent occurrence and many surgeons reluctance to adopt the technique can be traced back in part to questions they have as to how loss of volume contributes to how the face ages, how to specifically recognize those changes, and questions they have about how to perform the fat grafting procedure to correct them. In this article we attempt to answer the questions "why perform facial fat grafting during facelift procedures?", "where should fat be placed in the face?", "how should fat be injected?", and "how much should be injected in each area?".

One-Year Relapse of Mandibular Distraction for Hemifacial Microsomia Using Masseteric Botulinum Toxin Type A Injections.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Oct;29(7):1737-1741

Maxillo-facial Surgery Center, Plastic Surgery Hospital.

Background: The relapse of hemifacial microsomia was thought to be highly related to the soft tissue envelope around the mandible angle mainly composed by masseter and medial pterygoid. According to the reason, we tried to apply masseter injection of type A botulinum toxin to weaken the soft envelope tension on the early stage post mandible distraction in adult HFM patients.

Methods: Eight patients diagnosed with HFM were studied and randomly assigned to an experimental or control group. Read More

Three-Dimensional Stereophotogrammetric Evaluation of the Efficacy of Autologous Fat Grafting in the Treatment of Parry-Romberg Syndrome.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov;29(8):2124-2127

Department of Biomedical, Surgical and Dental Sciences, Università degli Studi di Milano.

Autologous fat grafting is a surgical procedure used to correct volumetric defects, atrophies, and sclerosis. Three-dimensional (3D) facial photography may enable researchers to quantify the success of surgical procedures through volumetric and surface assessments. Using 3D photography, the authors assessed the results of autologous fat grafting performed in a 15-year-old patient affected by Parry-Romberg syndrome, a rare condition resulting in progressive hemifacial atrophy of skin, subcutaneous tissues and, ultimately, bone.

Halos and Asymmetric Triangles: Designing the Eyelids with Volume Using Fillers and/or Fat.

Authors:
Samuel M Lam

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Apr 9;34(2):173-177. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Private Practice, Plano, Texas.

Periorbital aging is mainly a product of volume loss, which can be addressed with fillers and/or fat grafting. This stands in contrast to the lower face where a lifting procedure can be the principal method to improve moderate-to-significant aging. New models to explain these concepts of periorbital rejuvenation to both the surgeon and the prospective patient are outlined herein, namely, three facial halos (around the eyes, around the perimeter of the face, and around the mouth) and asymmetric triangles around the eyes.

Authors:
Thomas L Tzikas

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Apr 9;34(2):164-172. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Facial Plastic Surgery, Delray Beach, Florida.

Primary manifestations of facial aging are the reduction in subcutaneous tissue volume, especially the atrophy of fat as well as bone volume depletion which directly contribute to loss of support and laxity of the skin. Depressions and hollows develop with a visible disruption of the cosmetic facial aesthetic units resulting in harsh shadows. This is especially evident in the eyebrow and temporal regions which accentuate the appearance of brow ptosis and a hollow, almost cadaveric look to the temple. Read More
