BACKGROUND: Super-high superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) suspension and tailor tack plication are powerful facelift tools used in cases of primary facial rhytidectomy. TECHNIQUE: Thorough pre-operative patient screening and counseling are completed in an outpatient cosmetic surgery center. A super-high SMAS flap is developed by undermining and incising along a line extending from the tragus to lateral canthus and dissecting the SMAS sufficiently to induce movement of the lateral nose and the oral commissure with traction on the SMAS...

BACKGROUND: In Asian rhinoplasty, a septal extension graft can be used for both tip projection and derotation of the alar cartilage. However, patients often do not have enough harvestable septal cartilage to create the septal extension graft. We therefore devised a method with which to fix the derotated alar cartilage with a small amount of septal cartilage. METHODS: From January 2012 to December 2016, 23 patients underwent short nose correction with a septal half extension graft made of septal cartilage and were postoperatively monitored for at least 6 months...

Eyelid shape is one key distinctive feature of the Asian eye. The presence of epicanthal folds is a common eyelid defect of Asians. Different surgical techniques have been developed to correct epicanthal folds. However, potential problems with these techniques are emerging, such as difficulty in design, recurrence and/or prominent scarring after surgery, and restricted application together with double eyelidplasty. An improved epicanthoplasty technique with high simplicity and flexibility is imperative. From October 2000 to March 2017, we performed V-flap epicanthoplasty procedures on 423 Asian patients...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate aesthetic outcomes in patients with bilateral trapezius hypertrophy treated by botulinum toxin type A (BTxA) injection for aesthetic reconstruction of the upper trapezius. METHODS: From May 2015 to May 2016, 30 women with a short neck shape resulting from bilateral trapezius hypertrophy were treated with botulinum toxin type A (BTxA) injection at the most affected area of the upper trapezius. Pre- and postoperative values of SACDF (irregularly shaped area of the four points A, C, D, and F) and SACDE (irregularly shaped area of the four points A, C, D, and E), responses to patients' and doctors' Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS) questionnaires for neck aesthetic assessment, as well as reported adverse events, were recorded and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Carboxytherapy is the transcutaneous administration of CO2 gas for therapeutic purposes. Although this non-surgical procedure has been widely used for reducing localized adiposity, its effectiveness on fat loss in obese patients and its underlying mechanisms remain unclear. METHODS: C57BL/6 mice were fed with a high-fat diet for 8 weeks to generate obese animal models. Obese mice were randomly assigned to two groups: One group was administered air to both inguinal fat pads (air/air), and the other group was treated with air to the left inguinal fat pad and with CO2 to the right inguinal fat pad (air/CO2 )...

BACKGROUND: Incisional double-eyelid blepharoplasty is widely applied because of its extensive indications and robust results. The orbicularis-levator fixation method is an incisional approach that provides stronger adhesion than traditional techniques. However, there remains the risk of postoperative relapse or suture spitting out. METHODS: The authors introduced a modified technique for supratarsal crease formation. When necessary soft tissue removal was completed, the orbicularis oculi muscle was anchored on the tarsus...

BACKGROUND: Recent research on stromal vascular fraction (SVF) has demonstrated the presence of numerous growth factors that aid in tissue regeneration and suggest the potential for scar treatment. This study was conducted to clinically show that adding stem cells can improve the surgical outcomes of scar formation. METHODS: Between March 2014 and February 2016, 17 patients underwent injections of fat and highly condensed SVF simultaneously with scar reduction surgeries and 15 patients received scar revision with or without simultaneous application of highly condensed SVF (4...

BACKGROUND: Capsular contracture remains one of the major complications after breast implantation surgery. The extent of capsular contraction is scored using the Baker scale. The aim of this study was to compare intra-individual Baker-I with Baker-IV capsules, and in particular the prevalence and histological properties of the inner capsule layer. METHODS: Twenty capsules from ten patients were included after bilateral explantation surgery due to unilateral capsular contracture (Baker-IV) after cosmetic augmentation with textured implants...

BACKGROUND: Korean males and a few females desire to have larger eyes; however, they often wish to enlarge their eyes and conceal their double eyelids. This paper attempts to describe how to make the eyes bigger and brighter without showing double-fold eyelids. METHODS: The authors performed cosmetic ptosis correction in 121 cases from April 2013 to December 2017. All patients enrolled in this retrospective study underwent surgical procedures at the author's institutions...

BACKGROUND: Double eyelid surgery with a buried suture is a popular plastic surgery procedure in Asia owing to the relatively minor scarring and quick recovery associated with it. In this article, we present a new approach involving a continuous single-loop buried suture method, which expands the operating site to the conjunctiva and the aponeurosis-Müller's muscle complex. METHODS: The medical records of 42 patients (80 eyes) who underwent double-eyelid blepharoplasty were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: In patients with a thin soft tissue breast envelope, lower pole implant palpability is a postoperative sequela that concerns patients. Anatomically, the lower aspect of the breast near the inframammary fold lacks sufficient soft tissue to cover the breast implant after augmentation. METHODS: A transareolar incision was made, and subcutaneous dissection was performed. The dissection first proceeded caudally to the lower aspect to the breast parenchyma...

PURPOSE: A linear surgical scar, when located in the head and neck region, can be a significant cosmetic concern. Laser skin resurfacing with a fractional laser and a pulsed dye laser has been proven to be useful for treating such scars. As alternatives, we used a classic ablative CO2 laser in continuous mode with a 1-mm spot size and a 595-nm Nd:YAG laser. We investigated the effect of the combination of the continuous CO2 laser and 595-nm Nd:YAG laser and compared it to the effect of fractional CO2 laser monotherapy on linear scars...

BACKGROUND: Despite the advantages of autologous fat transfer to the breast, there are many complications after the surgery, such as oil cysts, calcification and palpable breast nodules. The fat purification process is a key step to reduce those complications, but there is currently no standard processing method. This study was designed to compare the incidence of fat necrosis after autologous fat grafting to the breast with low-speed centrifugation and sedimentation. METHODS: This study analyzed 100 patients (167 breasts) who underwent autologous fat grafts to the breasts from January, 2015 to March, 2017...

BACKGROUND: Although the short- and long-term effectiveness of abobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport® /Azzalure® ) for glabellar line (GL) treatment is well established, reporting of subject satisfaction over repeat treatment cycles is limited. The APPEAL study aimed to assess subject satisfaction with long-term GL treatment with abobotulinumtoxinA in a real-life setting. METHODS: APPEAL was a noninterventional, prospective, longitudinal study in subjects administered ≥ 3 abobotulinumtoxinA injection cycles for moderate-to-severe GL, according to routine clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: A severely crooked nose due to trauma or other causes is difficult to correct. Although various nasal osteotomy techniques have been suggested, satisfactory outcomes have not always been achieved especially in centrally deviated noses. Definite correction of the midline and shape of the bony framework is necessary. We aimed to investigate a novel one-piece nasal bone osteotomy approach consisting of transverse osteotomy continued with bilateral lateral osteotomies for the correction of a centrally deviated nose...
