Buttock enlargement with lipoinjection is a procedure that has had a very high demand in the last 5 years. Changes in aesthetics have made more patients request greater volume in their buttocks and hips. The procedure requires not only liposuction, in which the fat is obtained, but also a systematization off the fat injection process in the buttock to obtain the appropriate aesthetic results according to the characteristics of each patient. The procedure achieves very satisfactory results because it can transform the patient's physical appearance significantly...

Lip enhancement is a common injection treatment that may involve several different injection techniques based on the patient's goals, expectations, and facial anatomy. It is the aesthetic provider's professional judgment to determine which technique will provide the desired results. Taking the time to provide a thorough assessment, review the potential complications, and discuss expectations is an important step in building a patient-nurse therapeutic relationship. Understanding the anatomy and the supporting structures around the perioral area will improve the overall results of a lip enhancement treatment...

Background: Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are the most commonly performed aesthetic techniques by plastic surgeons. Patients are interested in a pain-free experience. Surgeons desire patient satisfaction and time-efficient utilization of office staff and resources. Clinical evidence exists for use of vapocoolant technology to reduce pain associated with intravenous cannulation in the pediatric population and in hemodialysis patients. Applying vapocoolant technology to facial rejuvenation is a novel approach to decrease pain associated with neurotoxin or filler injection...

Sternal clefts are rare malformations, especially in their complete form, which results from a lack of fusion of the sternal bars, which is normally done at the 9th week of intra uterine life. The incomplete form is often associated with other malformations of the chest wall, or falling within the framework of a polymalformative syndrome, the diagnosis is easy, being done with the inspection and the palpation, the paraclinical examinations are useful for confirming the diagnosis. We report the case of a total congenital sternal cleft isolated in an asymptomatic 20-day-old newborn...

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is used extensively in aesthetic medicine thanks to its documented role in skin rejuvenation. The specific applications of HA-based products are not always fully acknowledged due to a lack of consistent recommendations. In this paper, the authors have summarized available published data on the range of applications of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA®) gel skin boosters (NSBs) in several anatomical areas and types of patient, as well as their own recommendations. Overall, the panel agreed that a standard initial protocol treatment of up to 3 sessions, followed by a maintenance schedule, would allow patients to improve and then preserve skin quality over time...
