#1
Shu Liu, Weizhong Liang, Kexin Song, Youbin Wang
OBJECTIVE: Facial keloids commonly occur in young patients. Multiple keloid masses often converge into a large lesion on the face, representing a significant obstacle to keloid mass excision and reconstruction. We describe a new surgical method that excises the keloid mass and resurfaces the wound by saving the keloid skin as a skin flap during facial keloid treatment. METHODS: Forty-five patients with facial keloids were treated in our department between January 2013 and January 2016...

Shirley Shue, David E Kurlander, Bahman Guyuron
BACKGROUND: Fat grafting to the aging face has become an integral component of esthetic surgery. However, the amount of fat to inject to each area of the face is not standardized and has been based mainly on the surgeon's experience. The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review of injected fat volume to different facial zones. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature was performed through a MEDLINE search using keywords "facial," "fat grafting," "lipofilling," "Coleman technique," "autologous fat transfer," and "structural fat grafting...

Restoration of the esthetic neck contour is an integral component of facial rejuvenation. Characters of the aging neck include lipodystrophy, platysmal bands and jowls that extend into the neck, reducing the esthetic characters of the lower face. The authors present a new, simplified and economic method to manage platysmal bands as an office procedure under local anesthesia using a standard 18-gauge syringe needle as a cutting tool. The new technique was used on a selected group of female patients classified as non-surgical cases according to Rorich classification...

Manuel Maia, Diana Costa Santos
BACKGROUND: After massive weight loss, patients typically presented with skin redundancy, which causes enormous esthetic, physical, medical and psychological problems. The growing number of patients with these sequelae triggered an increase in the search for body contouring procedures, which in turn produced an important development in the post-bariatric reconstructive surgery. METHODS: The author describes the principles of a personal approach in post-bariatric reconstructive surgery...

REVIEW
Karl M Lyons, Ivan Darby
Periodontics cannot be practiced in isolation as frequently many patients have multiple dental needs or medical health issues requiring management. In addition, pathology may manifest in the periodontal tissues, and the onset and progression of periodontitis can be affected by systemic conditions, such as diabetes, and vice versa. The focus of this volume of Periodontology 2000 is interdisciplinary periodontics, and the articles included discuss the interactions and the interrelationshipbetween periodontal tissues/periodontal diseases and endodontics, fixed prosthodontics, implant dentistry, esthetics, gerodontology, radiology, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral pathology, special needs dentistry and general medicine...

Lin Wang, Dan Tian, Xiumei Sun, Yanju Xiao, Li Chen, Guomin Wu
BACKGROUND: Facial asymmetry is very common in maxillofacial deformities. It is difficult to achieve accurate reconstruction. With the help of 3D printing models and surgical templates, the osteotomy line and the amount of bone grinding can be accurate. Also, by means of the precise repositioning instrument, the repositioning of genioplasty can be accurate and quick. In this study, we present a three-dimensional printing technique and the precise repositioning instrument to guide the osteotomy and repositioning, and illustrate their feasibility and validity...

INTRODUCTION: The umbilicus is an important component of body esthetics, and its absence or dysmorphia may give rise to psychological discomfort, making it a common concern in surgical planning. Many techniques of umbilicus reconstruction have been proposed, each with its own limitations in terms of esthetics, risk of stenosis or final positioning. Reconstruction techniques may involve skin grafting, cartilage, purse-string suture and flaps. One of the most promising approaches is scarless neo-umbilicoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Orthognathic surgery has become more popular to slenderize a wide lower face and to improve facial esthetics in Asian patients with normal occlusion. Clockwise rotation (CR) of the maxillomandibular complex (MMC) steepens the mandibular plane. This study performed a quantitative analysis on the influence of CR on slenderness of the lower face from the frontal view. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included 36 female patients with Angle Class I occlusion and skeletal Class III pattern...

Linghuan Zeng, Ying Cen, Junjie Chen, Lei Lei
BACKGROUND: Epicanthoplasty is a reconstructive procedure that eliminates the deformity of the epicanthal fold and provides a more esthetic inner canthus. The epicanthal tension-releasing incision is a core technique of epicanthoplasty. However, which epicanthal dermatic tension-releasing incision most effectively provides epicanthal tension release remains unclear. We designed a novel dermatic tension-releasing incision based on the skin projection of the inner canthal ligament and compared it with the more conventional incision parallel to the lower inner canthal mucocutaneous junction (white line)...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of Grade III gynecomastia generally utilizes mastectomy techniques and free transplantation of the nipple-areola complex. Moreover, with rising obesity rates and the development of bariatric surgery, an increasing demand for correctional surgery for pseudogynecomastia has been observed, which is comparable to Grade III gynecomastia in terms of its surgical management. Here, we describe an innovative technique to deal with these new demands: fascio-cutaneous flap by postero-inferior pedicle...
