With the increase in popularity of the use of cosmetic fillers in plastic and esthetic surgery, the possibility of severe ocular complications should not be neglected. Of the fillers used, autologous fat is the most common to cause permanent visual deterioration, one of the most severe complications associated with the use of cosmetic fillers. Here we present the first report of a complete recovery of visual acuity from an instance of visual loss with no light perception caused by ophthalmic artery occlusion of the right eye following autologous fat injection in the facial area...

BACKGROUND: Gluteoplasty has gained notoriety over the last decades, which has motivated the development of various surgical techniques. Nevertheless, the fear of dissection of the intramuscular plane without direct visualization may inhibit learning and development of gluteal augmentation with implants. Moreover, literature detailing the technical steps of intramuscular dissection for the construction of the implant pocket is scarce. This study presents a new approach to intramuscular dissection for gluteal augmentation with silicone implants, a variation of the conventional surgical technique...

BACKGROUND: Current knowledge about the blood supply of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) has largely been derived from studies on cadavers or persons with breasts of normal size. The aim of this study was to identify and classify the NAC blood supply by computed tomographic angiography (CTA) examination in female volunteers with breast hypertrophy. METHODS: CTA examination was performed on hypertrophic breasts of 23 female subjects. The main blood supplies were revealed through image data analyses...

BACKGROUND: Hemifacial microsomia (HFM) is one of the most common congenital craniofacial asymmetries. Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is always recommended as an effective option for the treatment of HFM, but some studies showed that the asymmetry remained after DO. In comparison with DO, stable clinical outcomes could be achieved by orthognathic surgery approach as well. However, soft tissue expansion cannot be performed. In this study, we aim to assess the radiographic and clinical results of bimaxillary DO associated with staged orthognathic surgery in the treatment of craniofacial asymmetry for adult HFM patients...

BACKGROUND: Nipple reconstruction is an important last step in the process of autologous or implant-based breast reconstruction. A multitude of techniques have been described, among others the S-flap. To prevent nipple retraction after surgery, we modified the originally described method by Cronin. METHODS: By adding an S-shaped incision line, the flap can be transposed with less tension and sutured on top of the new nipple along a curved line. Furthermore, two small triangular flaps were inserted at the base for reinforcement and reduced linear contraction...

The senior author introduced the transpalpebral approach for the first time during the ASPS meeting in 1993. He has made some refinements in the technique and has developed newer indications for this procedure. These refinements, indications and the related new video are the subject of this report. The modifications in the technique are as follows: After elevation of the skin and the orbicularis muscle and dissection under the muscle, a thin layer of the depressor supercilii muscle overlying the darker and more friable corrugator supercilii muscle is removed...

BACKGROUND: Laser therapies are used prophylactically for excessive scar formation. The Laser-Assisted Skin Healing treatment induces a controlled heat stress that promotes tissue regeneration. This comparative trial is the first to evaluate the performance of a new automated 1210-nm laser system, compatible with all Fitzpatrick scale phototypes. METHODS: Forty women undergoing bilateral breast reduction were enrolled in this double-blinded randomized controlled trial...

The Australian population is 10% of Asian origin, and many of our Asian patients have had nasal augmentation using prosthetic material prior to immigration or as medical tourists back in their country of origin. Insertion of nasal prostheses is the most common way to augment the nasal dorsum in the Asian patient and although there is a trend towards autogenous primary augmentation still, the vast majority of patients seen in clinical practice have had augmentation by the insertion of foreign material generally silicone...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of large defects of the upper eyelid is challenging because of its complex anatomy and specialized function. The aim of this work is to develop a single-stage reconstruction procedure based on a new approach. The technique consists of the advancement of an orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flap designed within the blepharoplasty skin excision pattern. METHODS: After the tumor's excision is completed with clear margins, the borders of the flap are incised down to the submuscular plane inside the classical pattern of upper eyelid blepharoplasty...

BACKGROUND: There is conflicting data on the potential necrotic complications of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) use in breast reconstruction, and most studies focus on mastectomy flap necrosis as an outcome measure associated with ADM use. The aim of this study was to examine cases with necrotic complications with and without the use of ADM and to investigate whether ADM affected perioperative outcomes in cases with necrotic complications. METHODS: Patients who experienced mastectomy flap necrosis following mastectomy with tissue expander placement between January 2009 and March 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is an often under-recognized yet severe psychiatric illness. There is limited guidance for plastic surgeons in the USA in how to recognize and manage patients with BDD and protect themselves from potential litigation and harm. Therefore, in collaboration with legal counsel, we remind our profession of the serious nature of patients with BDD, provide warning signs for recognizing BDD, and critically evaluate the validity of informed consent and the legal ramifications of operating on such patients in the USA...

BACKGROUND: The aims of our study were to identify studies that evaluated patient satisfaction after transsexual surgery, analyze existing questionnaires, and summarize their development, psychometric properties, and content. METHODS: A systematic review of the English-language literature was performed. Patient-reported outcome measures designed to assess patient satisfaction and quality of life following transsexual surgery were identified. Qualifying instruments were assessed for content and adherence to international guidelines for development and validation...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of Grade III gynecomastia generally utilizes mastectomy techniques and free transplantation of the nipple-areola complex. Moreover, with rising obesity rates and the development of bariatric surgery, an increasing demand for correctional surgery for pseudogynecomastia has been observed, which is comparable to Grade III gynecomastia in terms of its surgical management. Here, we describe an innovative technique to deal with these new demands: fascio-cutaneous flap by postero-inferior pedicle...

BACKGROUND: Nipple reconstruction is usually performed as a separate procedure, several months after the primary breast reconstruction. This study compared the outcomes of immediate and delayed nipple reconstructions during implant-based breast reconstructions. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of patients who underwent nipple reconstruction, after implant-based breast reconstruction, between September 2014 and August 2015. The nipple was simultaneously reconstructed following tissue expander removal and implant placement...
