Background: As the number of patients using dermal filler for face augmentation increases, the number of adverse events associated with injection may increase. Unpredictable repositioning of blood vessels and a more tenuous blood supply in the operated nose may increase the risk of ischemia, necrosis and vascular embolism following the filler injection. Objectives: To highlight the importance of the patient's history of previous cosmetic procedures including rhinoplasty in the emergence of vascular complications...

Tattoo popularity continues to rise, with 3 in 10 Americans bearing at least one. Among tattoo complications, non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) has emerged as a global public health concern. NTM infections associated with tattooing of immunocompetent individuals have occurred as sporadic cases and community outbreaks. Water sources are considered the major pathogenic reservoirs. Tattoo-related inoculation has been linked to contamination of ink, either during the manufacturing process or during dilution of black ink using non-sterile water...

BACKGROUND: The second most common deformity of the anterior chest wall, pectus carinatum, is a diverse deformity that has been largely managed using open techniques. This study reviews clinical experience with a newly designed bar for minimally invasive repair of pectus carinatum. METHODS: We reviewed the records of all patients recorded in our Chest Wall Deformities Clinical Database. Between January 2006 and November 2016, minimally invasive repair of pectus carinatum was performed in 172 patients...

CASE DESCRIPTION 5 cats (9 eyes) were evaluated for surgical correction of bilateral eyelid agenesis. CLINICAL FINDINGS All eyes lacked > 25% of the temporal upper eyelid, and all cats had clinical signs attributable to chronic ocular exposure. Abnormalities were limited to the ocular surface in the 4 female cats, whereas the sole male cat had additional abnormalities consistent with anterior segment dysgenesis. TREATMENT AND OUTCOME A modified Roberts-Bistner procedure involving 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (2OCA) was performed on 9 eyes; 1 eye was enucleated...

Mastectomies for both cancer resection and risk reduction are becoming more common. Existing chest wall irregularities are found in these women presenting for breast reconstruction after mastectomy and can pose reconstructive challenges. Women who desired breast reconstruction after mastectomy were evaluated preoperatively for existing chest wall irregularities. Case reports were selected to highlight common irregularities and methods for improving cosmetic outcome concurrently with breast reconstruction procedures...

EDITORIAL
Shin-E Wang, Shih-Chin Chen, Bor-Uei Shyr, Yi-Ming Shyr
Choledochal cyst is a relatively rare congenital disease. The current standard treatment of choice for choledochal cyst is complete excision with Roux-en-y hepaticojejunostomy due to possible associated complications if left untreated, such as cholangitis, pancreatitis, cirrhosis, portal hypertension, and biliary malignancy. Traditionally, the resection for choledochal cyst is carried out with open surgery because of complex dissection and bilioenteric reconstruction. Recently, minimal invasive approach has gain wide interest, especially with the use of robotic surgical systems which can facilitate complex minimal access procedures...

A 66-year-old woman was referred to our institute for an enlarging tumor of the thyroid, and neck and chest computed tomography scan showed not only a thyroid tumor, but also an anterior mediastinal tumor and ground-glass nodules in the lung. Because of persisting symptoms, an enlarging thyroid mass, and the possibility of cancer, excision of the tumors was proposed. A 6-cm-long vertical skin incision was made in the right axilla, a mini-thoracotomy was made in the third intercostal space, and an additional port was placed in the fifth intercostal space...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to review a large series of frontoethmoidal encephalocele (FEE) regarding their clinical presentation, the progressiveness of the mass volume, the skin stigmata as well as its surgical approach and post-surgical complications. METHOD: Records of all FEE patients treated in Soetomo General Hospital, Surabaya, and Charity Foundation Program from 2008 to 2015 were reviewed. Detailed patient's demography, clinical findings, radiology results, operative procedures, and complications were documented...

PURPOSE: Recurring keloids are a clinical challenge. Interdisciplinary treatments are required in most cases. Owing to the wide variety of concepts, the optimal treatment regime remains unclear. Our clinic established a protocol of perioperative interstitial high-dose-rate brachytherapy with three fractions of 6 Gy and achieved an excellent 2-year local control rate of 94% (In search of the optimal treatment of keloids: Report of a series and a review of the literature). This report is an update on our long-term results of prospective study...

This is the first study to report on the prevalence of cosmetic facial plastic surgery use among facial plastic surgeons. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency with which facial plastic surgeons have cosmetic procedures themselves. A secondary aim is to determine whether trends in usage of cosmetic facial procedures among facial plastic surgeons are similar to that of nonsurgeons. The study design was an anonymous, five-question, Internet survey distributed via email set in a single academic institution...

Importance: Breast implants are among the most commonly used medical devices. Since 2008, the number of women with breast implants diagnosed with anaplastic large-cell lymphoma in the breast (breast-ALCL) has increased, and several reports have suggested an association between breast implants and risk of breast-ALCL. However, relative and absolute risks of breast-ALCL in women with implants are still unknown, precluding evidence-based counseling about implants. Objective: To determine relative and absolute risks of breast-ALCL in women with breast implants...

Background: Numerous new approaches have been described over the years to improve the cosmetic outcomes of thyroid surgery. Transoral approach is a new technique that aims to achieve superior cosmetic outcomes by concealing the incision in the oral cavity. Methods: Transoral thyroidectomy through vestibular approach was performed in two institutions on cadaveric models. Procedure was performed endoscopically in one institution, while the robotic technique was utilized at the other...

BACKGROUND: Before creation and validation of the FACE-Q by Pusic et al., adverse event types and incidences following facial cosmetic procedures were objectively measured and reported by physicians, potentially leading to misrepresentation of the true patient experience. This article analyzes and compares adverse event data from both FACE-Q and recent review articles, incorporating patient-reported adverse event data to improve patient preparation for facial cosmetic procedures. METHODS: FACE-Q adverse event data were extracted from peer-reviewed validation articles for face lift, rhinoplasty, and blepharoplasty, and these data were compared against adverse effect risk data published in recent Continuing Medical Education/Maintenance of Certification and other articles regarding the same procedures...
