Rhinoplasty mammaplasty

Rui Hou, Dong Li, Jie Yuan, Liang Xu, Jieneng Wu, Min Wei
Augmentation rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in Asia, and both dorsal augmentation and mobile nose modifications are emphasized for the characters of the Asian nose and for Asians who are fond of the Western nasal shape. The goal in rhinoplasty is to create a balanced and natural appearance. Therefore, the cosmetic aspects, postoperative complications, and functional aspects should be regarded as a whole. In fact, the first 2 aspects had been widely reported in a large number of literatures...

BACKGROUND: Plastic surgeons and other doctors who perform cosmetic procedures face relatively high risks of malpractice claims and complaints. In particular, alleged problems with the consent process abound in this area, but little is known about the clinical circumstances of these cases. METHOD: We reviewed 481 malpractice claims and serious health care complaints resolved in Australia between 2002 and 2008 that alleged failures in the informed consent process for cosmetic and other procedures...

BACKGROUND: Individuals younger than 18 years represent an increasing number of cosmetic surgery patients. The goals of this article are to address the unique psychological aspects of teens and cosmetic surgery; to understand literature related to adolescents and cosmetic surgery; and to consider methods for evaluating adolescents who present for cosmetic surgery, specifically focusing on nasal and breast procedures. METHODS: A PubMed search was performed using combinations of the keywords "cosmetic surgery," "adolescent," "psychology," "rhinoplasty," "breast augmentation/reduction," and "gynecomastia...

BACKGROUND: The present study investigated psychosocial factors expected to predict an interest in cosmetic surgery. It was hypothesized that body dysmorphic disorder-like symptoms, personality, interpersonal attachment insecurity, low self-esteem, poor body image, dissatisfaction with sexual life, distorted eating behavior, emotional distress, low education, poor relationship with parents and friends, teasing history, social acceptance of cosmetic surgery, and low level of physical activity would relate to an interest in cosmetic surgery...

Persons with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) frequently seek surgical and minimally invasive (MI) treatments to improve their appearance, but few studies have evaluated patient characteristics and outcomes. Surgical/MI treatment histories of 200 persons with BDD were cross-sectionally/retrospectively evaluated. Clinical and demographic characteristics of persons who received such treatments (n = 42) were compared to those who had not (n = 158). Outcomes and reasons for nonreceipt of requested procedures were examined...

BACKGROUND: The present study investigated various psychosocial factors expected to predict an interest in liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and abdominoplasty. METHODS: Questionnaire data were obtained from 1862 participants who responded to a survey distributed to a representative sample of 3500 women from northern Norway aged 18 to 35 years. RESULTS: Liposuction was the most popular procedure (25 percent), followed by breast augmentation (15 percent), rhinoplasty (7...

BACKGROUND: Current rates of postoperative nausea and vomiting experienced by outpatient surgery patients are as high as 20 to 30 percent. Electroacustimulation therapy has been demonstrated to be effective in controlling these symptoms, but trials identifying its efficacy in the outpatient surgery population are lacking. METHODS: One hundred twenty-two patients undergoing surgical procedures at an outpatient surgery center were randomized to two treatment arms...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: The National Health Service (NHS) provides treatment free at the point of delivery to patients. Elective medical procedures in England are funded by 149 independent Primary Care Trusts (PCTs), which are each responsible for patients within a defined geographical area. There is wide variation of availability for many treatments, leading to a "postcode lottery" for healthcare provision in England. The aims were to review funding policies for cosmetic procedures, to evaluate the criteria used to decide eligibility against national guidelines, and to evaluate the extent of any postcode lottery for cosmetic surgery on the National Health Service...

Anesthetic complications are uncommon in young and healthy patients undergoing cosmetic surgery. We report 2 cases of negative pressure pulmonary edema (NPPE) in young patients, 1 who underwent rhinoplasty and another who underwent augmentation mammaplasty and suction-assisted lipoplasty of the thighs and buttocks This rare and potentially fatal complication requires admission to an intensive-care unit and delayed discharge. Although cases of NPPE have been reported in the medical and anesthetic literature, NPPE in plastic surgery has never been reported previously...

Jacques Mathieu Delpech, Aimé Guinard Samuel Pozzi, three famous surgeons of the 19th and early 20th century were murdered by patients. All three contributed to the history of plastic surgery. Delpech (1777-1832) carried out the first plastic surgery in France using a forehead flap to replace a loss of substance on the face, Guinard (1856-1911) did the first reduction mammaplasty. Pozzi (1846-1918) was probably the first to perform an operation of face lift on one of his patients but did not publish it. These three surgeons were killed by unbalanced patients they had operated of benign lesions...

Candidates for abdominoplasty often request multiple procedures at the time of consultation. Some of these patients have the potential opportunity to have ancillary procedures performed through the abdominoplasty incision, such as breast augmentation or suction-assisted lipectomy. Access via the abdominoplasty incision can also limit the need for distant donor sites, for instance, when autologous fillers or rib graft are necessary. The techniques described are straightforward and are based on standard principles that should be considered when ancillary procedures are performed in conjunction with abdominal contouring procedures...

A questionnaire was addressed to 600 members of the French Society of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. Out of 19,000 interventions, thanks to the analysis of 112 answers, we were able to get a good picture of the activity in aesthetic surgery, showing the number and type of complications experienced during each intervention. Cosmetic surgical procedure represents 35% of global surgical activity of the French plastic surgeon. The most frequent interventions are liposuction (19%), breast augmentation (16%), eye-lid surgery (14%), abdominoplasty (12%), mammaplasty (10%), facelift (10%) and rhinoplasty (8%)...

Aesthetic surgery has its origin in plastic surgery. It has considerably developed to such a point that the number of procedures performed at the present time is well over the reconstructive procedures. After having emphasized the importance of patient's motivation and the high level of specific technical training of the plastic surgeon, the most common procedures are illustrated. Their major advantages and pitfalls are outlined.

Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rapidly developing disease, which may be lethal if not recognized and treated early. TSS unrelated to menstruation comprises an increasing proportion of the cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control during recent years, and a review of the literature reveals that TSS has is reported with increasing frequency in plastic surgical patients as well. The majority of reports relates to aesthetic plastic surgical procedures such as rhinoplasty, augmentation mammaplasty liposuction, and chemical peeling, but cases of TSS following reconstructive breast surgery with musculocutaneous flaps have also been reported...
