Background: The majority of transgender research focuses on patients who fall within the gender binary of either trans-male or trans-female. This largely omits understanding of the "non-binary" gender identity, as it pertains to surgical care. Objective: To describe a single-institution experience performing chest affirming procedures in non-binary patients, including patient characteristics, surgical techniques, practice pearls, and outcomes. Methods: This is an observational study of non-binary patients undergoing a "chest affirming surgery" from 2012 to 2017...

Background: In some upper eyelid blepharoplasties, maximal skin removal may not result in desired outcomes and raising crease height can be considered. Currently, there is no method to determine the amount of skin to be excised and/or crease elevation required to achieve a specific outcome. Objective: This study extrapolates an equation to determine amount of skin excision and/or lid crease elevation needed to achieve a specific eyelid margin to fold distance (MFD)...

Background: Pedal fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure indicated to treat the functional and aesthetic sequelae of pedal fat pad atrophy. Fat grafting has been found to mitigate these symptoms, but the exact mechanism is unknown. Objectives: We hypothesize that pedal fat grafting may improve skin quality, accounting for prolonged symptomatic improvement despite loss of grafted fat. Methods: Patients with pedal atrophy were enrolled in a randomized crossover clinical trial...

Background: Improvement in the retention rate of transplanted fat is currently a topic of interest. The retention of transplanted fat relies heavily on the reestablishment of blood supply and the function of the adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs), which may both be impeded by mechanical force. However, the effect of mechanical force on the retention of adipose implants remains unclear. Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of immobilization on fat retention rate...

Background: In 2014, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) increased the minimum required aesthetic surgery cases for graduation from plastic surgery residency from 50 to 150. To date, there has been no research into how this has impacted resident aesthetic surgery training focusing on the resident perception. Objective: We sought to evaluate resident perception and satisfaction with their aesthetic surgery training before and after the ACGME case log requirement increase to assess its impact on training and comfort level...

Background: Rhinoplasty relies on clear patient communication and precise execution of a three-dimensional (3D) plan to achieve optimal results. As 3D imaging and printing continue to grow in popularity within the medical field, rhinoplasty surgeons have begun to leverage these resources as an aid to preoperative planning, patient communication, and the technical performance of this challenging operation. Objective: Utilizing departmentally-available resources and open access 3D imaging platforms, we have developed an affordable, reproducible protocol for rapid in-house virtual surgical planning (VSP) and subsequent manufacture of 3D-printed rhinoplasty models...

Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC) have come to be viewed as a ubiquitous solution for aesthetic and reconstructive problems involving loss of tissue volume and age or radiation-induced loss of tissue pliability and vascularity. As the theoretical potential of "stem cell therapy" has captured the public imagination, so the commercial potential of novel therapies is being exploited beyond scientifically sound, hypothesis-driven paradigms and in the absence of evidence establishing clinical efficacy and safety...

Background: Learning to inject botulinum toxin for cosmetic purposes is difficult for beginners given the nature of the procedure and patient population. Simulation training is an effective modality for medical professionals to acquire skills in an environment that provides low stress and ample opportunity for questions and correction of mistakes. Objective: Compare posttraining comfort, knowledge, and practical botulinum toxin injection scores between trainees who underwent simulation versus video training only...

Since its advent in the early 1980s, liposuction has made tremendous advancements, making it the most popular aesthetic surgery performed today. The goal of this Continuing Medical Education (CME) article is provide a foundation of knowledge of the relevant anatomy, preoperative evaluation, intraoperative technique, and postoperative management for surgeons performing liposuction. Finally, the prevention and management of potential complications, will be reviewed along with measures to optimize patient safety and outcomes...

There is an increased demand for gender affirmation surgery. Chest contouring, or "top" surgery, is especially important in the female-to-male (FtM) transgender population. This Continuing Medical Education (CME) article critically appraises the available literature on top surgery to allow plastic surgeons to understand current practices and determine the best surgical technique using a decision algorithm and the patient's preoperative anatomy and characteristics. Because a single best surgical approach does not exist due to significant variance in preoperative patient anatomy, and in order to provide a useful framework for decision making, surgical approaches described are categorized as: approach 1-remote incision procedures without skin excision; approach 2-procedures with periareolar skin excision; and approach 3-mastectomy procedures with skin excision other than periareolar skin excision...

Background: Autologous fat grafting (AFG) is increasing in popularity to address a variety of defects. There is interest in developing techniques to harvest, process and inject fat to improve clinical outcomes as well as operative efficiency. Objectives: The purpose of this pilot study is to compare the rate of graft processing of two commercially available systems for graft preparation. Methods: Twenty consecutive cases using an active filtration system-AF were observed followed by twenty consecutive cases using a passive filtration system-PF to compare efficiency rate...

Background: Traumatic nasal deformities have a wide spectrum of presentations, which further complicates their management and preoperative planning. Although many methods and algorithms have been proposed for management of specific posttraumatic nasal deformities such as twisted, deviated, saddle or short nose, these algorithms usually focus on a specific deformity in isolation from the remainder of the nose. Objectives: The aim of this study is to present an algorithm for traumatic nasal deformities and to evaluate the functional and aesthetic outcomes of this new algorithm by a preoperative and postoperative quality-of-life questionnaire...
