INTRODUCTION: The reconstruction of the body shape after post-bariatric surgery or high-grade gynecomastia involves, besides skin tightening, the repositioning of anatomical, apparent landmarks. The surgeon usually defines these during the preoperative planning. In particular, the positions of the nipple-areola complexes (NAC) should contribute to the gender-appropriate appearance. While in the female breast numerous methods have been developed to determine the optimal position of the NACs, there are only a few, metric and often impractical algorithms for positioning the nipples and areoles in the male...

Scleroderma is a term used to describe diseases that involve hardening and tightening of the skin and the underlying subcutaneous connective tissue. It could be localized to skin and subcutaneous tissue, or may involve the internal organs too in systemic sclerosis. There are disorders that can cause hardening and tightening of skin and mimic scleroderma but are rarely associated with Raynaud phenomenon, sclerodactyly, and autoantibodies in the serum, features specific to scleroderma/systemic sclerosis. These are termed as "scleroderma variants" or "scleroderma like disorders"...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterised by fibrosis, inflammation and vasculopathy in the skin and internal organs. Recently, several articles described that Th17 cells, IL-23 and IL-17 levels were significantly elevated in the peripheral blood or fibrotic sites of SSc. We report a case of SSc and psoriasis administered ustekinumab, IL-12/IL-23 inhibitor. In this case, the skin tightening was successfully improved and ustekinumab was more effective, even though oral prednisolone (9-12 mg/day) had some effect on skin tightening and arthralgia...
