Technicized medicine foreshadows a dehumanisation of care : patients are seen as tools for progress, and doctors are focused on the therapeutical means to be developed. Therefore, surgeons are torn between their desires, as technicians, to improve their tech-nical skills, and their duty, as doctors, to look after each patient who needs care. The advent of laparaoscopy has changed the way doctors consider their patients' bodies. The current state of surgery is in crisis insofar as humanist surgery can no longer meet the aspirations of modern surgery...

Maurício de Maio
Consideration of facial muscle dynamics is underappreciated among clinicians who provide injectable filler treatment. Injectable fillers are customarily used to fill static wrinkles, folds, and localized areas of volume loss, whereas neuromodulators are used to address excessive muscle movement. However, a more comprehensive understanding of the role of muscle function in facial appearance, taking into account biomechanical concepts such as the balance of activity among synergistic and antagonistic muscle groups, is critical to restoring facial appearance to that of a typical youthful individual with facial esthetic treatments...

The patient's satisfaction with the esthetic result is a major criterion of success in septorhinoplasty. However, the idea of esthetic perfection varies greatly and primarily depends on subjective perception. Hence, patient-reported instruments are important and necessary to assess the outcome in septorhinoplasty. To analyze the potential of the visual analog scale (VAS) as a patient-reported outcome measure in septorhinoplasty, the perception of the nasal appearance was assessed by a VAS pre- and postoperatively in 213 patients undergoing septorhinoplasty...

In general, hyaluronidases have a broad potential application on medicine and esthetics fields. Hyaluronidases from animal venoms cleave hyaluronan present in the extracellular matrix, acting as spreading factors of toxins into the tissues of the victim. However, the in-depth characterization of hyaluronidase from animal venoms has been neglected due to its instability and low concentration in the venom, which hamper its isolation. Thus, heterologous expression of hyaluronidase acts as a biotechnological tool in the obtainment of enough amounts of the enzyme for structural and functional studies...

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is now extensively employed for esthetic concerns. In the majority of cases, HA is considered to be safe, but mild-to-severe complications can occur in a few cases. Hyaluronidase is enzymes that degrade HA, also being suggested for the treatment of HA filler-induced complications. However, hyaluronidase has been reported to be a potential cause of allergic responses in some anesthetic and ophthalmic literature. However, there are few reports of allergic reactions to hyaluronidase in cosmetic medicine...

BACKGROUND: Many mastopexy techniques have been described in the literature focusing on the new nipple areolar complex position and the breast deflation treatment, but only few of them detailed the glandular volume redistribution to avoid the use of implants. We describe a mastopexy procedure that brings the maximum of the volume to the central part of the breast. We compare the procedure to a "chignon" hair style way to vulgarize the technique and simplify its comprehension...

BACKGROUND: We discuss homeopathy's placebo effect as the result of a distributed therapeutic agency involving humans, objects, and texts. Homeopathy has been involved in controversies for centuries, and the dispute whether it is therapy or quackery is as lively as ever. Still, homeopathy has retained significant popularity and acceptance within the medical establishment. AREAS OF UNCERTAINTY: We bracket the issue of biochemical effectiveness of homeopathic remedies as we only discuss homeopathy's potential to elicit a placebo response within its therapeutic alliance, in virtue of its social, symbolic, and material features...

INTRODUCTION: The specialty of periodontology has changed dramatically in recent years. With the long-standing goal of retaining teeth in a functional and esthetical state, the periodontology has developed a high level of expertise in the regeneration of bone and connective tissues that support the teeth. However, periodontists have also joined maxillofacial surgeons as the primary providers of implant surgery. METHODS: The tremendous innovations of periodontists induced also by the marketplace resulted in predictable periodontal treatment outcomes for most patients by the implants led to a dramatically different marketplace in which many patients with periodontitis can be treated by the implants rather than the traditional periodontal treatment...

Hua Chen, Chaoyin Jiang, Yaozeng Xu, Yangbai Sun
Toe-to-finger transplantation is intimately related to the development of microsurgical free tissue transplantation, which is one of the most important advances in the history of reconstructive surgery. It is also generally acknowledged that a mangled hand with massive tissue loss and amputation of multiple digits presents a challenge for plastic and reconstructive surgeons. In this retrospective study we reviewed 11 cases of primary one-stage post-traumatic reconstruction of complex fingerless hands using a combination of toe-to-finger and free tissue transplantation performed in Shanghai Jiao Tong University affiliated Sixth People's Hospital and Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine affiliated Ninth People's Hospital from January 2001 to November 2014...
