Background: The impact of facial aesthetic treatments not only enhances physical appearance, but also psychological well-being. Accordingly, patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are increasingly utilized as an important measure of treatment success. Observer-reported outcomes (OROs) are a relevant yet often-overlooked measure of treatment benefit. Objectives: The current study aimed to evaluate the impact of panfacial aesthetic treatment on the perception of an individual in a variety of social contexts...

Background: Handheld 3-dimensional surface imaging (3DSI) devices of various precision are becoming more versatile in their applications and more widely accepted by clinicians for documentation. Objectives: To compare the precision of facial volumetric change measurements of three 3DSI devices in the cadaveric model: Eva® (Artec 3D Inc., Luxembourg), Sense ® (3D Systems, Rock Hill, SC, USA) and iSense® (3D Systems, Rock Hill, SC, USA). Methods: A total of 336 scanning and analysis procedures were carried out in four cephalic specimens (mean age, 77...

Background: Social media has become an indispensable tool for patients to learn about aesthetic surgery. Currently, procedure-specific patient preferences for social media platforms and content are unknown. Objectives: To evaluate social media preferences of patients seeking aesthetic surgery. Methods: We utilized a choice-based conjoint analysis survey to analyze the preferences of patients seeking three common aesthetic procedures - breast augmentation (BA), facial rejuvenation (FR) and combined breast/abdominal surgery (BAB)...

Background: Nonsurgical lip enhancement using dermal fillers is a very popular procedure. The trend of enlarged lips has been popularised by media and social media. The lips have considerable aesthetic and functional importance, in addition to having a complex anatomy. Serious complications including vascular compromise or occlusion leading to cutaneous necrosis and blindness can occur as the result of lip enhancement using dermal fillers. Therefore, aesthetic practitioners require an in-depth understanding of the anatomy and vasculature of the lips and the perioral area prior to providing lip enhancement using dermal fillers...

Background: Rhinophyma results in nasal deformity, which may lead to significant distress, embarrassment, social isolation, and low self-esteem. Fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment is a simple, non-invasive and outpatient procedure with a low complication rate that has been useful in rhinophyma treatment. Objectives: To assess the impact of fractional ablative CO2 laser treatment on self-esteem in patients with rhinophyma. Methods: Twelve patients with rhinophyma, between 50 and 80 years of age, received 4 monthly treatment sessions with a fractional ablative CO2 laser...

Background: Filler injection is a popular cosmetic procedure, but it can entail vascular complications. Periorbital injections have the highest risk among all the injection area. Objectives: To systematically screen for periorbital arterial variations prior to treatment. Methods: The external carotid arteries of 10 cadaveric heads were infused with adequate lead oxide contrast. The facial and superficial temporal arteries of another 11 cadaveric heads were injected with the contrast in sequential order...

Background: Volume restoration using filler in the dorsum of the hand is a simple and effective procedure to improve wrinkles and to hide veins and tendons. Currently, Calcium-Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)-filler is the only FDA-accepted material to use in the hand dorsum. However, it is not easy to inject due to swelling and redness. In addition, hand anatomy through sonography is wrongly described in PRS. Through incorrect anatomy, physicians will make erroneous surgeries. Objectives: CaHA-filler and HA-filler were both injected into the hand to compare intra-individually the effect of each filler...

Background: Migraine is a severe disabling condition, ranked by World Health Organization as the 6th highest cause of disability worldwide. It has great impact on the patient's quality of life, functionality, physical and mental health. The financial burden of migraine on the UK economy is conservatively estimated at £3.42 billion per year. Objectives: To perform an evidence-based literature review of the safety and efficacy of botulinum toxin type A (onaBoNTA) in the prophylactic treatment of adult patients suffering with chronic migraine (CM) in comparison to placebo...

We present a methodology called biological morphogenetic surgery (BMS) that is able to recover (enlarge or reduce) the shape/volume of anatomic structures/tissues affected by congenital or acquired malformations based on a minimally invasive procedure (MIP). This emerges as a new concept in which the main task of surgery is the biological modulation of different remodeling and repair mechanisms. When applied, for example, to a tuberous breast deformity (TBD), the "enlarging BMS" expands the retracted tissue surrounding the gland through a cutting tip of a needle being inserted through small incisions percutaneously, accounting for the biological activity of the grafted fat...

Background: Social media have become ubiquitous in society with an increasing number of active daily users across multiple platforms. Social media use has grown within the field of plastic surgery with many surgeons creating a professional account to gain exposure. Objectives: This study investigates the patterns of use and perceptions of social media in plastic surgery. Methods: A 16-item questionnaire was sent electronically to board-certified plastic surgeons to investigate professional social media use and perceptions...

Background: Capsular contracture (CC) has remained an unresolved issue throughout history. Strong evidence focuses on bacterial biofilm as its main source. A literature review revealed that more than 90% of bacteria found in capsules and implants removed from patients with Baker grade III-IV CC belong to the resident skin microbiome (S. epidermidis, predominant microorganism). The use of an adequate preoperative skin antiseptic may be a critical step to minimize implant contamination and help prevent biofilm-related CC...
