Many operations of aesthetic surgery were described between 1920 and 1930. Several French surgeons are recognized as pioneers of the speciality. Pierre Mornard (1883-1929) published numerous articles of plastic and aesthetic surgery between 1925 and 1929 the date of his death. The articles were illustrated with drawings of surgery he had practiced. He described in 1929 the first abdominoplasty with umbilical transposition. Pierre Mornard can be considered a pioneer of aesthetic surgery.

In addition to the impact factor, research funding also plays a central role in evaluating the academic performance and quality of a researcher, a clinic or a surgical specialty. The scope and quality of research in Plastic Surgery are usually very little known, so that even large funding institutions do not get a full view of research funding in our specialty. Therefore, sometimes traditional structures are not adapted to new needs by the developing younger surgical fields. In peer review sometimes peers are not chosen from the same surgical specialty, but from a different surgical fields being peers in large field of surgery...

BACKGROUND: Over the past few years, conchal cartilage has been most often used in rhinoplasty. The donor site complications following conchal cartilage graft harvesting are scar formation, hematoma formation, and delayed wound healing, although hematoma is one of the most important and common complications. A complete conchal defect as a complication of auricular cartilage graft harvesting has not been previously reported in the literature. The authors report an unusual case of an iatrogenic conchal defect resulting from conchal cartilage graft harvesting that was treated using a posterior auricular island flap...

Though a life-saving modality in neonatal intensive care units, nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) carries a small risk of irreversible ischemia and necrosis of the columella due to the configuration of the pressure delivery system. Iatrogenic injuries to the columella after nCPAP use result in a spectrum of disfigurement and functional airway obstruction. The authors performed a retrospective review of patients evaluated for nCPAP-related columellar deformities by the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the authors' institution over a 10-year period to assess reconstructive outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Implant-based breast reconstruction (IBBR) is the most commonly performed reconstructive procedure in the UK. The introduction of techniques to augment the subpectoral pocket has revolutionised the procedure, but there is a lack of high-quality outcome data to describe the safety or effectiveness of these techniques. Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) are the best way of comparing treatments, but surgical RCTs are challenging. The iBRA (implant breast reconstruction evaluation) study aims to determine the feasibility, design and conduct of a pragmatic RCT to examine the effectiveness of approaches to IBBR...

BACKGROUND: Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgery procedures worldwide. Bacterial contamination is of paramount concern due to its role in biofilm formation and capsular contracture. Plastic surgeons have adopted a variety of perioperative interventions in efforts to reduce implant contamination, however definitive evidence supporting these practices is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to assess current practice patterns aimed at reducing implant-related infections in breast augmentation and comparing them to current evidence-based medicine recommendations...

BACKGROUND: In the patient-driven market of aesthetic surgery, an understanding of the factors that patients consider in their choice of surgeon can inform the individual plastic surgeon's marketing strategy. Previous studies have investigated patient gender preferences for physicians in other specialties, but none has investigated whether patients consider gender when choosing a plastic surgeon. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of a plastic surgeon's gender on patient choice...
