Premaxillary Deficiency: Techniques in Augmentation and Reconstruction.

Semin Plast Surg 2020 May 6;34(2):92-98. Epub 2020 May 6.

Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery Associates, Fort Worth, Texas.

Progressive premaxillary retrusion is a common sequela of the facial aging process. In most cases, this manifests with central maxillary recession. Central maxillary insufficiency is also commonly encountered within certain ethnic communities, or in cleft lip nasal deformity, and may represent a challenge for the plastic and reconstructive surgeon attempting correction in the setting of facial contouring, rhinoplasty, or reconstruction following oncologic resection or trauma.

The Alignment of the Nose in Rhinoplasty: Fix Down Concept.

Authors:
Süleyman Taş

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 Feb;145(2):378-389

From private practice.

Background: The current literature on rhinoplasty focuses mainly on the nasal profile (sagittal plane); however, the nose is a three-dimensional structure, and alignment of the nose in consideration of other aspects is important to achieve an aesthetic result. The author aimed to introduce the fix down concept, which includes fix down technique and the adjunct maneuvers for achieving alignment of the nose in three anatomical planes and improving the results of rhinoplasty in terms of symmetry.

Methods: Between March of 2017 and December of 2017, a total of 102 patients (78 women and 24 men), 13 revision and 89 primary cases, underwent septorhinoplasty with the fix down concept. Read More

Anthropometric Analysis of Secondary Cleft Lip Rhinoplasty Using Costal Cartilage Graft.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Nov-Dec;30(8):2464-2468

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Menofiua University, Menoufia.

Despite the improvement of primary repair of nasal deformities during the management of cleft lip in infancy, this does not exclude the need for revision rhinoplasty in adulthood for complete patients' rehabilitation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the aesthetic outcome of secondary rhinoplasty using costal cartilage grafts in patients with unilateral cleft lip nasal deformity. Twenty patients who were operated at earlier ages for correction of cleft lip and had a residual unilateral cleft lip nasal deformity were included in this study. Read More

Redefining the Septal L-Strut to Prevent Collapse.

PLoS One 2016 13;11(4):e0153056. Epub 2016 Apr 13.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, POSTECH, Pohang, Korea.

During septorhinoplasty, septal cartilage is frequently resected for various purposes but the L-strut is preserved. Numerous materials are inserted into the nasal dorsum during dorsal augmenation rhinoplasty without considering nasal structural safety. This study used a finite element method (FEM) to redefine the septal L-strut, to prevent collapse as pressure moved from the rhinion to the supratip breakpoint on the nasal dorsum and as the contact percentage between the caudal L-strut and the maxillary crest changed.

Asian Rhinoplasty with Rib Cartilage.

Semin Plast Surg 2015 Nov;29(4):262-8

VIP International Plastic Surgery Center, Seoul, Korea.

An Asian rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery. The anatomical characteristics of the Asian nose are quite different from those of other races, including low dorsum height, short columella, a thick soft tissue covering on the tip with flaccid lower lateral cartilage, and a sunken midface with relative protrusion of the mouth due to maxilla or premaxillary retrusion. For augmentation and lengthening of the nose, a silicone implant has been commonly used in Asian countries. Read More

Anatomy and surgical treatment of the depressor septi nasi muscle: a systematic review.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2015 May;135(5):838e-848e

New York, N.Y.; and Shreveport, La. From the Department of Plastic Surgery, New York University; and The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery.

Background: Although the majority of nasal alterations in rhinoplasty result from either augmentation or reduction of bone and cartilaginous substructure, modifications of influential soft-tissue provide significant contribution to the final result. The depressor septi nasi muscle is a soft-tissue structure well known to influence the final result in rhinoplasty. The objective of this study was to perform a standardized, comprehensive review of relevant data published with regard to the depressor septi nasi muscle. Read More

Correction of infraorbital and malar deficiency using costal osteochondral graft along with orthognathic surgery in Crouzon syndrome.

J Craniofac Surg 2014 Sep;25(5):e449-51

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Ajou University Hospital, Suwon, Republic of Korea.

In syndromic craniosynostosis, such as Crouzon syndrome, midfacial hypoplasia can cause exophthalmos and concave facial profile. Though midfacial hypoplasia in Crouzon syndrome patients can be treated with midface advancement, known as a Le Fort II or Le Fort III osteotomy, such method can change nasal appearance and frequently fails to achieve class I occlusion after surgery. This report presents a case of an aesthetically and functionally successful midfacial augmentation using rib and cartilage graft along with orthognathic surgery (Le fort I and bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy) for patients with Crouzon syndrome.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2001 Oct;108(5):1127-35

Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery, Lok Nayak Hospital, New Delhi, India.

It is universally acknowledged that correction of a cleft lip nasal deformity continues to be a difficult problem. In developing countries, it is common for patients with cleft lip deformities to present in their early or late teens for correction of severe secondary lip and nasal deformities retained after the initial repairs were carried out in infancy or early childhood. Such patients have never had the benefit of primary nasal correction, orthodontic management, or alveolar bone grafting at an appropriate age. Read More
