Contour enhancements of the midface make up a dominant aspect of aesthetic surgery. The goal of midface rejuvenation is to decrease the prominence of grooves and creases as well as to provide volume to atrophied tissue. There are various options, including autologous tissue grafts, allogenic tissue grafts and alloplastic materials. In turn, patients’ needs have led to an increasing trend of less invasive treatments. In the present study, 82 implants were used for midface augmentation in 41 patients (38 women, 3 men) between January 2014 and January 2016...

Dermal fillers have been in use for many years for aesthetic rejuvenation of the face. More recently, however, fillers have been increasingly used as an alternative to traditional surgical procedures for non-aesthetic indications. These indications include lagophthalmos, eyelid malpositions and orbital volume deficiency. The advantages of these filler injections are multiple: minimally invasive, repeatable, titratable and even reversible (depending on the product used). We review the current literature of functional uses of filler injections as mentioned above and evaluate the safety profile and efficacy of filler injections for this purpose...

The loss of superior midface contour and projection can be corrected with the use of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers, however, the most frequently used injection pattern employs a technique which was originally designed for malar implant surgery. Here we describe a novel injection pattern for restoring facial contours with a HA dermal filler inspired by traditional make-up artistry, which includes greater superolateral positioning of injection sites. Importantly, this technique helps injectors avoid creating an excess of volume in the anterior portion of the malar complex...

<p>Aging gracefully has taken on a whole new meaning over the past few decades as new aesthetic treatments have been developed and are becoming more sophisticated by the day. The aging process, which is exacerbated by chronic UV exposure, results in dyspigmentation, loss of skin laxity, precancerous and cancerous skin lesions, fat loss and redistribution, and bone resorption. Laser and light devices can be used to treat dyspigmentation, while neuromodulators and soft tissue fillers can be used for rhytides and revolumization...

Lipotransfer for soft tissue filling is a well-established plastic and aesthetic surgical technique. Elective fat grafting is considered a safe and well-tolerated procedure. Coleman and others have reported that fat grafting may have tissue regenerative properties and not only serve as a soft tissue filler. There have been reports from our group and others that it may improve fibrosis secondary to many different pathological aetiologies including scleroderma, burn injury, lichen sclerosis, graft vs host disease, and radiation...

BACKGROUND. The demand for minimally invasive aesthetic procedures has driven requests by physicians for guidance on their use in Asian patients, who have unique cultural preferences, social trends, and anatomy. However, few guidelines exist, particularly on combination treatment strategies for different facial shapes or indications such as the modification of face shapes to the "oval ideal."Physicians must, therefore, apply Caucasian patient-optimized guidelines to their Asian patients. METHODS. Eleven specialists developed a consensus on the use of botulinum toxin A (BoNT-A), calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) and hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, and microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) devices in Asian patients on upper-, middle-, and lower-face indications, including strategies to modify different facial shapes to the oval shape...

This second article of a three-part series addresses techniques and recommendations for aesthetic treatment of the midface. Injectable fillers are important for rejuvenation of the midface by replacing lost volume and providing structural support; neuromodulators play a smaller role in this facial region. Fillers are used for volumization and contouring of the midface regions, including the upper cheek and lid-cheek junction and the submalar and preauricular areas. Also, treatment of the frontonasal angle, the dorsum, the nasolabial angle, and the columella may be used to shape and contour the nose...

The goal of this article is to provide a systemic approach to forehead rejuvenation. Fillers, botulinic toxin injections, transpalpebral, endoscopic or bicoronal brow lift must be usual techniques for every plastic surgeon in overall facial rejuvenation. Achieving a long lasting and aesthetically pleasing forehead is possible only with surgical techniques when aging is obvious.

BACKGROUND: Treating temporal volume loss for aesthetic and reconstructive purposes can be achieved by superficial or deep injections of soft tissue fillers into the temples. The latter is performed with bone contact that can lead to intracranial penetration when the bone is accidentally penetrated. OBJECTIVE: Based on a clinical case, the potential risk of accidental intracranial penetration was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty fresh-frozen hemi-faces (all Caucasian ethnicity, 10 women, 10 men, mean age 72...

BACKGROUND: Precise implantation of soft tissue fillers to treat the signs of aging is crucial for patient safety and the best aesthetic outcome. Injections are performed commonly with either needles or cannulas, but quantitative comparative data on precise implantation are still elusive. METHODS: Ten fresh-frozen cephalic foreheads (9 male, 1 female) were injected with radiopaque material using both needles and cannulas. Needle injection relied on a perpendicular transcutaneous approach, whereas cannulas were moved in the supra-periosteal plane until reaching the same location as the needle...
