Cureus 2022 Feb 26;14(2):e22621. Epub 2022 Feb 26.

Department of Dermatology, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Tel Aviv, ISR.

Surgical defects involving multiple facial cosmetic subunits can be challenging to reconstruct. We report on a patient with a complex temporal defect following Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) for a basal cell carcinoma (BCC). The extension of the defect across the left temple, cheek, and forehead hindered the utilization of linear closures or flaps. Read More

Use of a Buried Intradermal (Subcutaneous) Running Suture for Superficial Repair to Optimize Cosmetic Outcome

J Drugs Dermatol 2019 May;18(5):481-482

Superficial repair after excisions helps to optimize cosmetic outcomes. Possibly due to how wound closures are traditionally taught in dermatology, simple interrupted or continuous sutures are overwhelmingly favored by dermatologic surgeons in superficial repair, especially on cosmetically sensitive areas such as face and ears. However, this repair method risks wound overgrowth around the points where the suture traverses through the epidermis, and long-term postsurgical healing frequently leaves behind scars with ‘railroad track’ suture marks rather than a fine line.

Facial Basal Cell Carcinoma in Patients Younger Than 40.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 May;17(5):525-530

Introduction: The incidence of basal cell carcinoma in the population younger than 40 years is rising, and a majority of basal cell carcinomas occur on the head and neck. Our objective was to determine whether basal cell carcinomas in the population younger than 40 years occur more frequently at the forehead and its subunits (forehead proper, temple, suprabrow, and glabella).

Methods: We performed a retrospective case review of 4,337 basal cell carcinomas in 3,223 patients treated with Mohs micrographic surgery. Read More

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

Rejuvenation of the Upper Face and Periocular Region: Combining Neuromodulator, Facial Filler, Laser, Light, and Energy-Based Therapies for Optimal Results.

Dermatol Surg 2016 May;42 Suppl 2:S77-82

*Department of Ophthalmology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina; †Department of Dermatology & Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; Departments of ‡Ophthalmology, and §Dermatology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.

Background: The upper face and periocular region is a complex and dynamic part of the face. Successful rejuvenation requires a combination of minimally invasive modalities to fill dents and hollows, resurface rhytides, improve pigmentation, and smooth the mimetic muscles of the face without masking facial expression.

Methods: Using review of the literature and clinical experience, the authors discuss our strategy for combining botulinum toxin, facial filler, ablative laser, intense pulsed light, microfocused ultrasound, and microneedle fractional radiofrequency to treat aesthetic problems of the upper face including brow ptosis, temple volume loss, A-frame deformity of the superior sulcus, and superficial and deep rhytides.

Marking sutures to orientate specimens of basal cell carcinoma: do they really make a difference?

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2016 Jul 25;54(6):682-5. Epub 2016 Apr 25.

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, St Richards Hospital, Chichester.

Traditionally, marking sutures have been used to orientate specimens of non-melanomatous skin cancers, and they provide an identifiable point as a reference for monitoring and further treatment. For histopathological purposes, the orientated specimen is marked with different inks, which enables measurement to the nearest lateral and deep margins, and if invaded, guides further excision. We retrospectively analysed 688 specimens of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) from the head and neck from two separate years: 2010 and 2012. Read More

Perceptions of Aesthetic Outcome of Linear vs Multiple Z-Plasty Scars in a National Survey.

JAMA Facial Plast Surg 2016 Jul;18(4):263-7

Department of Dermatology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Importance: The process of Z-plasty scar revision breaks up a linear scar into multiple parts with the purpose of camouflage and improvement of the cosmetic appearance of surgical scars. Although this postulation guides the practices of many reconstructive surgeons, few studies support improved aesthetic outcomes.

Objective: To compare the perceived cosmetic appearance of linear scars vs zigzag scars by the general public. Read More

Facial dermis grafts after removal of basal cell carcinomas.

J Craniofac Surg 2012 Nov;23(6):1895-7

Department of Plastic Surgery, Korea University Guro Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Selecting a proper reconstruction method is the key to success in skin cancer management, especially for lesions involving the face. Using a skin graft is usually straightforward when covering a skin defect; however, major concerns in skin grafting include a poor color match in the recipient-site and donor-site morbidity. To overcome these limitations, the authors have developed a dermis graft, which utilizes a de-epithelialized split-thickness skin graft method. Read More
