The umbilicus is an important aesthetic landmark of the abdomen. It possesses a dual blood supply that allows it to survive either on its stalk if the skin surrounding the umbilicus is incised, or through the surrounding subdermal circulation if the stalk is transected. This is an important concept to consider in order to avoid umbilical ischemia and necrosis during abdominoplasty, especially if there is any past surgical history suggesting alteration to its blood supply. This case study depicts this importance and the importance of the use of delay in order to improve perfusion to the umbilicus prior to secondary abdominoplasty...

Background: In Asian patients, nasal deviation secondary to augmentation rhinoplasty may result from underlying bony asymmetry that was not corrected intraoperatively. Diagnosis and treatment of this condition are complicated by the masking effect of dorsal implants. Objectives: The authors applied computed tomography (CT) to examine the causes of nasal deviation after augmentation rhinoplasty. CT results were utilized in preoperative planning for revisional surgery...

Background: As the number of patients using dermal filler for face augmentation increases, the number of adverse events associated with injection may increase. Unpredictable repositioning of blood vessels and a more tenuous blood supply in the operated nose may increase the risk of ischemia, necrosis and vascular embolism following the filler injection. Objectives: To highlight the importance of the patient's history of previous cosmetic procedures including rhinoplasty in the emergence of vascular complications...

Background: The nipple-areola complex (NAC) is important aesthetically and functionally for both sexes. Methods for positioning the NAC in males are less well established in the literature compared to females but are just as important. Objectives: This study aims to determine the normal parameters for the male NAC, to review literature, and to present a reliable method for preoperative placement. Methods: Normal male patients, with no prior chest wall conditions, were prospectively recruited to participate...

Background: The increasing demand for labiaplasty is well recognized; however, the procedure remains contentious. Objectives: We aim to provide a large-scale, up-to-date analysis of labiaplasty outcomes and factors influencing postoperative sequelae (POS). Methods: We analyzed a single-center, prospectively maintained database of females undergoing labiaplasty between 2002 and 2017. Demographic, procedural, and outcomes' data were retrieved...

Management of the nasal dorsum remains a challenge in rhinoplasty surgery. Currently, the majority of reduction rhinoplasties results in destruction of the keystone area (K-area), which requires reconstruction with either spreader grafts or spreader flaps, both for aesthetic and functional reasons. This article will present the senior author's current operative technique for dorsal preservation in reduction rhinoplasty based on 320 clinical cases performed over a 5-year period. The author's operative technique is as follows: (1) endonasal approach; (2) removal of a septal strip in the subdorsal area whose shape and height were determined preoperatively; (3) complete lateral, transverse, and radix osteotomies; and (4) dorsal reduction utilizing either a push down operation (PDO) or a let down operation (LDO)...

Background: Surgical residents' exposure to aesthetic procedures remains limited in residency training. The development of the Montreal Augmentation Mammoplasty Operation (MAMO) simulator aims to provide an adjunctive training method and assessment tool to complement the evolving competency-based surgical curriculum. Objectives: To perform face, content and construct validations of the MAMO simulator for subpectoral breast augmentation procedures and assess the reliability of the assessment scales used...

Background: Calf contouring continues to be popular among Northeast Asians. Calf hypertrophy and distorted leg contours are stressful to many women. Several calf reduction techniques such as a selective neurectomy or calf muscle resection have been attempted, but have inconsistent results. Objectives: This study was designed to demonstrate improved outcomes when combining a selective neurectomy with simultaneous liposuction. Methods: A total of 780 patients with hypertrophic calves underwent calf reduction from January 2002 to December 2010...

Background: Lipofilling for breast reconstruction has become increasingly common. Creation of a well-defined inframammary fold (IMF) is integral to achieving symmetrical aesthetic results. This has traditionally been done under direct vision through an open incision. Objectives: The authors present their experience in reconstructive breast surgery with a novel percutaneous technique for IMF creation and improvement of projection without the need for large incisions...

Background: Outcomes in aesthetic breast surgery are dependent on preoperative breast measurements. The accuracy of 3-dimensional (3D) imaging in measuring critical landmarks in augmentation mammaplasty surgery has not been described. Objectives: We aimed to determine the predictability of 3D imaging compared to direct measurements. Methods: Two raters measured the breasts of 28 women using four anthropometric (direct) measurements: sternal notch to nipple distance (Sn-N), nipple to midline (N-M), nipple to inframammary-fold distance under maximal stretch (N-IMF), and base width (BW)...

Background: The junction between upper and lower lateral cartilages, known as "the scroll area," is an important determinant of the spatial relationship between the middle and lower nasal thirds. Objectives: We offer a graduated and reproducible surgical technique of scroll area management, that takes into consideration anatomic, functional and aesthetic relationships. Methods: This study was a retrospective review of the recorded intraoperative information to investigate the frequency of the use of scroll reconstruction techniques and perioperative parameters that relate to unintended component alterations in the scroll area...
