BACKGROUND: Free-flap surgery and skin grafting can be used to reconstruct large facial defects that may result after skin cancer removal by Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). However, these two methods may produce low postsurgical patient satisfaction with aesthetics, and free-flap surgery may produce an undue burden for the majority of skin cancer patients, who are of advanced age. Hence, the authors examined outcomes of large facial defect reconstruction using multiple flaps. METHODS: Among patients undergoing MMS for skin cancer at Pusan National University Hospital between January 2013 and December 2015, we evaluated 7 patients (2 males, 5 females; average age, 73...

The use of free flaps is considered the "gold standard" for reconstruction of head and neck defects. Locoregional flaps allows a better aesthetic result compared to free flaps, whenever there's an external skin defect. However the use of free flaps is not always adequate in the presence of preoperative comorbidities or previous surgeries. Since the description of the trapezius myocutaneous flap in the 1980's, many authors have published the results of the applicability of this flap in head and neck salvage reconstructive surgery...

BACKGROUND: The septal extension graft (SEG) is widely used in secondary rhinoplasty for correction of a short nose with loss of tip support and projection, columellar retraction, and hyper-rotated tip secondary to an overresection of the caudal septum. Although SEG precise fixation can be relatively easy in the external approach, the difficulties of SEG placement in "closed" rhinoplasty can be discouraging. OBJECTIVE: To describe an easy surgical technique for SEG placement in endonasal revision rhinoplasty and to analyze the aesthetic results of the procedure...

Although various techniques have been described for treatment of severe nose deformities, these problems have high revision rates. Conventional nasal septal surgery may not be adequate for all cases. A 21-year-old male patient with nose deformity underwent a nasal surgery. Patient had both functional and aesthetic nasal problems. Rigid fibular bone graft was used for corrective nasal surgery. Duration of the operation was three hours. Patient recovered without problems. Aesthetic and functional results of the operation were acceptable...

Complications resulting from the placement of silicone breast implants are becoming more frequent in our clinical practice. This is due to the increase in breast aesthetic surgeries at the beginning of the century, where breast augmentation using silicone implants was the main intervention performed. Generally, studies that discuss the complications of breast implants are restricted to reports of intra- or extra-capsular ruptures, contractures and haematomas. Currently, much importance has been given to anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) as a more severe complication related to silicone implants...

Numerous gender-based differences in medical treatment have been recognized due to conscious or unconscious perceptions, i.e. gender bias. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether gender differences exist in the surgical treatment of patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP) anomalies. This study is a retrospective review of 235 consecutive patients with non-syndromic unilateral CLP or bilateral CLP born between 1966 and 1986. Each chart was reviewed, and 2178 surgical procedures were registered and categorized as primary surgery (primary lip, palatal and alveolar repair) or secondary surgery (aesthetic and functional revision)...

INTRODUCTION: To improve their health and quality of life, obese patients undergo consultation after weight loss. In these patients, the sub-umbilical abdominal and pubic regions are often characterized by redundant skin, creating aesthetic and functional discomfort. Monsplasty is an important step in abdominoplasty or bodylift procedures. We report on an original technique used to correct deformity in the pubic region following weight loss. METHODS: All interventions were performed by the same surgeon between April and December 2015...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue changes secondary to Maxillary orthognathic surgery are many fold. The alar flare is one among them, which affects the appearance of the patient. Cinch suture has been used to prevent alar flare; but the presence of anaesthetic tube hinders cinching. So, the study was aimed to assess an efficacy of modified nasal to oral tube switch technique for modified alar cinching to prevent alar flare after orthognathic and nasal corrective surgeries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients were randomly allocated in each group, who underwent modified alar base cinching with and without nasal to oral tube switch...

I examine the intersection of politics and aesthetics in a public hospital in Caracas, Venezuela in the first years of the twenty-first century. Given Venezuela's longstanding embrace of physical enhancement and the contradictions of the medical values of cosmetic surgery with those of Bolivarian socialism, the changing surgical practices at a well-established public site offer a significant case for considering how different actors negotiate the dialectics of care. In the face of increasing resource shortages, negotiations of aesthetic care contributed to tensions in the clinical encounter as patients creatively pushed Bolivarian policies to support their pursuits of aesthetic self-improvement...

Aesthetic surgery of female external genitalia has gained increasing popularity over the past decade, with reduction of the labia minora (labiaplasty) being the procedure most commonly requested and performed. Female external genitalia lose elasticity and volume with age, but few studies describe the techniques for labia majora augmentation. Currently, very few studies have investigated the effectiveness and safety of labia majora augmentation with hyaluronic acid (HA) injection. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of labia majora augmentation with hyaluronic acid filler injection...

A good aesthetic result in thyroid surgery is one of the main goals, as this procedure usually involves young women affected in clearly visible anatomical areas. To minimize the detrimental effects of scarring outcome, several therapeutic options have been employed. Lasers may be an alternative choice for prevention and treatment of post-surgical thyroidectomy scar. This paper reviews literature and the current knowledge on this topic. A comprehensive search in the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE and PUBMED databases was performed to identify relevant literature investigating the role of laser therapy in both prevention and treatment of unappealing scarring after thyroid surgery...

This is a systematic review of eyebrow reconstruction options, using the PubMed database, as well as dermatology and plastic surgery texts. Eyebrow reconstruction options in various clinical scenarios (small, large, medial, lateral, and total defects) are presented. The goals of eyebrow reconstruction are to provide structural, functional, and aesthetic restoration. A good understanding of various eyebrow reconstruction techniques is essential for plastic, dermatologic, and oculoplastic surgeons.

BACKGROUND: Breast reduction techniques depend on the vascularity of the pedicle. Preserving vascularity of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) is mandatory for reduction mammoplasties, as the NAC is the most important aesthetic and functional unit of the breast. The inferior pedicle technique is the most common method for breast reduction; however, pedicle length may increase after using this technique and cause problems related to NAC viability in gigantomastic and hypertrophic breasts...

This is a commentary and discussion in response to a cadaveric study entitled, "Cervico-mental angle suspensory ligament: The keystone to understand the cervico-mental angle and the aging process of the neck." While highlighting the cervico-mental angle suspensory ligament has the potential to give rise to new surgical technique in neck rejuvenation surgery, the authors caution readers of the study's major limitation. Without well-documented results aligning with aesthetic ideals or reports of the safety and longevity of the procedure, it seems too early to consider this ligament the keystone to understand the aging neck...

BACKGROUND: In considering skin cancer, a number of factors - including effectiveness, simplicity of treatment, cost, and aesthetic outcomes - are important to ensure patient satisfaction. There are several existing interventions, such as electrodessication and curettage, excision, Mohs surgery, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, and topical/oral treatments. Laser therapy has emerged as a new promising alternative that should be explored. OBJECTIVE: To review the dermatologic literature on the use of laser therapy in the treatment of skin cancer...

The nose is a critically important aesthetic and functional portion of the face. We can explore nasal defects following trauma or tumor resections. Reconstructive techniques based on primary closure, skin graft, local flap, regional flap and microvascular free tissue transfer provides an algorithmic framework applicable to any reconstructive problem. From 2010 to 2016, 33 patients were treated with nasal reconstruction. Malignant tumor resection was the main cause of nasal defect. The most common tumor resected was BCC (basal cell carcinoma) followed by SCC (squamous cell carcinoma)...
