Kian Karimi, Alexandra Reivitis
Traditional rejuvenation techniques include chemical peels, rhytidectomy of the skin, laser resurfacing, injection of dermal fillers and neurotoxins, and invasive surgical procedures. Patients with brow ptosis, jowl formation, and deepening nasolabial folds currently seek antiaging procedures with no incisions and minimal downtime such as thread-lifting with barbed sutures. The present report describes a case in which polydioxanone threads were used to lift the lower third of a patient's face. Fillers were used to supplement the results achieved by the thread lift because often, when tissue has been lifted, volume deficits are revealed, which can be corrected with dermal fillers...

Fractional CO2 laser is one of the most effective treatment options used to resurface scars; However, most previous studies have been performed on mature scars at least 2 months after surgery. Recent studies have emphasized the importance of early treatment to reduce scar formation. In the present study, we described our experience with fractional CO2 laser intervention before skin suture during scar revision surgery in Asians, and found the treatment was safe and effective.

The development and use of light and lasers for medical and cosmetic procedures has increased exponentially over the past decade. This review article focuses on the incidence of reported cases of skin cancer post laser or IPL treatment. The existing evidence base of over 25 years of laser and IPL use to date has not raised any concerns regarding its long-term safety with only a few anecdotal cases of melanoma post treatment over two decades of use; therefore, there is no evidence to suggest that there is a credible cancer risk...

Soo Hyun Woo, Tae Hui Bae, Woo Seob Kim, Han Koo Kim
Reconstruction of pharyngocutaneous fistula (PCF) or orocutaneous fistula is always a challenging task. It has many causes and is especially related to radiation therapy after resection of head and neck cancers. There are many reports of surgical procedures for fistula repair. For example, 2-stage methods, methods of combining multiple flaps, and methods of using chimeric flaps have been reported. However, there is no established simple method as a treatment of choice. The authors describe 5 patients of head and neck fistulas and recommend a useful 1-stage reconstruction method using a double skin paddle free flap...

REVIEW
Michael J Brenner, Jeffrey S Moyer
Skin and composite grafting provide effective resurfacing and reconstruction for cutaneous defects after excision of the malignancy. The goal is to restore a natural appearance and function while preventing distortion of the eyelid, nose, or lips. With careful planning and attention to aesthetic subunits, the surgeon can camouflage incisions and avoid blunting aesthetically sensitive sulci. The surgical plan is also informed by the pathology, as basal or squamous cell carcinomas removed by Mohs micrographic excision have different prognostic and logistical considerations from melanoma...
