Background: The effect of a spreader flap on the keystone area and the upper bony vault depends on the structural strength and cephalic extent of upper lateral cartilages, both of which can be significantly variable among individuals. Objectives: The authors present a novel cephalically extended osseocartilaginous composite spreader flap technique that was designed to overcome the limitations of a conventional spreader flap on the keystone area upper bony vault, in patients with cephalically short and structurally weak upper lateral cartilages and thin nasal bones...

Background: OnabotulinumtoxinA and hyaluronic acid are effective in improving moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, with treatment selection traditionally based upon facial area. Objective: This prospective, multicenter, open-label, crossover study evaluated physician-rated efficacy and patient-rated outcomes following moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA and hyaluronic acid. Methods: 152 subjects (25-65 years) were randomized (1:1) to a treatment-sequence of onabotulinumtoxinA/hyaluronic acid or hyaluronic acid/onabotulinumtoxinA, with initial treatment administered on Day 1 and 6 additional visits: Week 2 (touch-up); Week 4 (crossover); Week 6 (touch-up); and Weeks 8, 12, and 24 (follow-up)...

Background: Rhinoplasty is a common surgical procedure that is requested and accepted by patients for cosmetic and functional reasons. Osteotomies are performed on nasal bone, maxillary crest, or vomer to fix the deviations of the nasal dorsum or septum. During the percussion of the osteotomes with the surgical mallet, the vibration energy diffuses to the cranium. Auditory and vestibular systems may be affected by these vibrations. Objectives: To assess the effects of rhinoplasty, in which osteotomies were performed using a hammer, on the audiovestibular system...

Background: An inverted nipple may affect the appearance of the breasts and breastfeeding, but traditional surgical procedures might injure the normal lactiferous ducts and damage sensory functions. Objectives: The aim of the study was to propose a minimally invasive and reliable method that preserves breastfeeding and corrects Grade I and II inverted nipples. Methods: This was a randomized controlled trial of 230 female patients with unilateral or bilateral inverted nipples and 30 patients with normal nipples who visited the Preconception Counseling Department of our hospital from February 2009 to January 2016...

Background: Although interest in penile augmentation procedures is increasing, there is a significant lack of research into the psychological and psychosexual outcomes of these procedures. Objectives: To investigate the psychological and psychosexual outcomes of nonsurgical medical penile girth augmentation. Methods: This retrospective study involved a mixed method approach. Twenty-five men who had undergone a nonsurgical medical penile girth augmentation between 1 and 12 months prior (mean, 6...

Background: One of the commonly cited sequelae of lower body lift is recurrence of the saddlebag deformity. However, there is currently no data that characterizes the evolution of the saddlebag following lower body lift, nor is there a classification scheme to objectively quantify the severity of the deformity. Objectives: The authors aim to develop a grading scale to score the severity of the saddlebag deformity and, using this, determine the short- and long-term changes in the saddlebag following lower body lift...

Background: Congenital, traumatic, or developmental bony vault deformities may require additional interventions rather than classical osteotomies to correct the surface structure or angulations of the nasal bones in rhinoplasty. Objectives: The aim of the study was to determine the effects of the additional osteotomies applied for the correction of the nasal vault asymmetries retrospectively. Methods: Twenty-one patients among 512 primary rhinoplasty cases between 2011-2016 with bony vault asymmetries were included into the study...

Background: Although global demand for cosmetic surgery continues to rise, plastic surgery residents feel that current models of aesthetic training are inadequate in preparing them for future practice. Digital learning resources offer promising educational possibilities, yet there are no formal studies investigating the integration of these technologies into the aesthetic curriculum. Objectives: Here, we review the current state of aesthetic training for plastic surgery residents and present a pilot study investigating the value of a dedicated multimedia-based aesthetic curriculum at a single, large academic program...

Background: Multiple processing and handling methods of autologous fat yields to variations in graft retention and viability, which results in unpredictable clinical outcomes. Objective: This study aims to understand the skin effects of fat graft preparations that contain a varying ratio of free-lipid and stem-cell-bearing stromal vascular fractions (SVF). Methods: Lipoaspirates from consenting patients were processed into emulsified fat and then SVF and adipocyte fractions (free-lipid)...

Background: Surgical applications using breast implants are individualized operations to fill and shape the breast. Physical properties beyond shape, size, and surface texture are important considerations during implant selection. Objective: Compare form stability, gel material properties, and shell thickness of textured shaped, textured round, and smooth round breast implants from 4 manufacturers: Allergan, Mentor, Sientra, and Establishment Labs through bench testing...

Background: The plunging-tip deformity has been attributed to the combined actions of nasal base muscles. However, there are no quantitative data in the literature to discuss the effect of muscle transections on the clinical outcome. Objectives: This study was designed to assess the actions of the nasal tip, nasal base, and upper lip in patients with plunging-tip deformity and to compare their preoperative and postoperative activities following multiple myotomies...
