Rintala Flap and Posterior Perichondrial Cutaneous Graft: A Combined Approach for Nasal Tip Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2022 May 6;10(5):e4316. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Geneva University Hospitals, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Nasal tip reconstruction requires a meticulous approach due to the complexity of the nasal anatomy and its aesthetic importance. Many procedures have been described to restore this aesthetic unit, including the paramedian forehead flap, which is one of the workhorse flaps. However, despite excellent final outcomes, this procedure may be refused by patients, due to its temporary conspicuous appearance possibly associated with serious psychological implications, and the need of multiple interventions.

Fresh Frozen Rib Cartilage Grafts in Revision Rhinoplasty: A 9-Year Experience.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 May 6. Epub 2022 May 6.

From the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute; Baylor College of Medicine; Division of Plastic Surgery, Baylor Scott & White, Texas A&M Health Science Center; and private practice.

Facial Recognition Pattern before and after Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty: An Eye Tracking Analysis.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2022 May;30(2):271-276

Department for Hand, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, Ludwig - Maximilian University Munich, Munich, Germany. Electronic address:

This study investigated eye movement patterns using eye tracking technology when looking at preoperative and postoperative images of patients that underwent bilateral periorbital cosmetic surgery. The sequence of facial recognition before surgery was periorbital-nose-perioral, whereas following surgery it was nose-periorbital-perioral. This study revealed that the sequence of facial feature recognition is influenced by the aesthetic liking of the observer and that alteration to facial features influences the sequence of facial feature recognition.

Early Postoperative Sequelae After Open Sky Access in Nasal Osteotomy: A Comparative Study.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 05 18;88(5):480-484. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Introduction: Nasal osteotomy is a powerful cornerstone step in almost all rhinoplasty procedures and is a major cause of postoperative periorbital ecchymosis and edema after rhinoplasty. Different accesses for osteotomy have been described, the most popular of which is the external perforating and the internal continuous methods. These accesses are blind maneuvers and have some drawbacks such as possible visible scar formation in the percutaneous access or high rate of mucosal tear in the endonasal access. Read More
