Rhinophyma is a disfiguring end-stage manifestation of acne rosacea. It is characterized by a painless hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands and connective tissues of the nose. Numerous surgical modalities-including scalpel surgery, dermabrasion, CO2 laser ablation, and electrocautery-have been reported with varying results. We describe our experience with using a microdebrider to treat 2 patients-a 65-year-old man and a 74-year-old man-who presented with rhinophyma. The instrument we used was the Medtronic Straightshot M4 Microdebrider...

BACKGROUND: The lack of nasal tip support resulting in poor protection and projection of the nose is a common cause of nasal obstruction and cosmetic impairment. Although septal cartilage is preferred for restoration of nasal tip support, there is often not enough septal cartilage available. We describe an intercrural columellar strut graft in a circumferential soft tissue pocket: the I-Beam technique. METHODOLOGY: In this cohort study over an 8-year period the clinical and biometrical long-term results after restoration of nasal tip support with an autologous auricular cartilage graft, the I-Beam technique, is evaluated...

Young females undergoing thyroid surgery are apprehensive about the surgical scar. This leads to the introduction of Transoral Endoscopic Thyroidectomy (TOET). TOET is gaining popularity for its minimally invasive and cosmetically sound approach to perform thyroidectomies in young patients. The surgical site being the mouth orifice poses a challenge to the anaesthesiologist to secure a definitive airway. The case report is that of a young female undergoing TOET for whom we have successfully performed nasal intubation with a North Pole ivory endotracheal tube (ET)...

BACKGROUND: Rhinoplasty represents one of the most challenging and frequently performed procedures in plastic surgery and non-surgical rhinoplasty is rarely considered. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the Nasella Nose Former (NNF), a newly developed non-surgical rhinoplasty device, could improve objective and subjective results following surgical rhinoplasty and even correct the shape of the nose without any surgery at all. METHODOLOGY: In this prospective, monocentric, two-armed, non-blinded randomized, controlled clinical trial, a total of 43 participants were included...

Osseointegrated craniofacial implants have improved retention and patients' perceptions of implant-retained nasal prostheses; however, the determination of the available bone sites for implant placement post-rhinectomy is difficult. This case report describes the use of cone beam computed tomography scanning and computer-assisted virtual planning in conjunction with digital photographs for rehabilitation of a facial defect with an implant-retained silicon nasal prosthesis. Two implants were planned in the anatomical area with adequate bone volume to achieve favorable cosmetic outcomes and accessibility for hygiene maintenance...

BACKGROUND: The cheek rotation flap has sufficient blood flow and large flap size and it is also flexible and easy to manipulate. It has been used for reconstruction of defects on cheek, lower eyelid, or medial and lateral canthus. For the large defects on central nose, paramedian forehead flap has been used, but patients were reluctant despite the remaining same skin tone on damaged area because of remaining scars on forehead. However, the cheek flap is cosmetically superior as it uses the adjacent large flap...
