BACKGROUND: Most common forms of hair loss (alopecia) are caused by aberrant hair follicle cycling and changes in hair follicle morphology. However, current treatments for alopecia do not specifically target these processes. Adipose-derived stromal vascular cells (ADSVCs) that can be harvested from fat cells are one of the latest breakthroughs in the aesthetic field. The potential use of stem cell-based therapies (SCBT) for the repair and regeneration of various tissues and organs offers a paradigm shift that may provide alternative therapeutic solutions, which can be applied to prevent hair loss...

INTRODUCTION: The emergence of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers with lidocaine has transformed the minimally invasive treatment of wrinkles, lines and folds of the face. Patients can be treated quickly, painlessly and without the need for large doses of lidocaine. Therefore, it is important to scientifically evaluate the merits of lidocaine-containing products over those without. METHODS: The two products, with (UJU) and without lidocaine (UJ), were randomly injected into nasolabial folds of 75 healthy volunteers with varying skin types in a split face study, age ranging 26-60 years...

In aesthetic medicine, there has been an ongoing search for an ideal dermal filler to offer zero complication rate. Polycaprolactone-based dermal filler (PCL) has been available since 2009. The purpose of the paper was to present a case of granuloma as a complication of PCL injection, which has not been reported so far by other researchers. A 68-year-old female was injected with PCL. One year later, nodules accompanied by bluish skin discoloration developed within the injection site. Ultrasound and histopathology studies were performed...

Trauma or burn injuries that affect the deep dermis often produce a hypertrophic scar, which limits patients' joint movement and generates an aesthetic problem. Inflammation is believed to be one of the main pathogenic mechanisms. We found that IL-17 was increased in scar tissues from patients with hypertrophic scar compared with normal skin. Recombinant mouse IL-17 was subcutaneously injected into mice that underwent full-thickness excision surgery to investigate the role of IL-17 in scar formation. Mice stimulated with IL-17 showed aggravated fibrogenesis, delayed wound healing, and increased inflammation...

Background: Keloid is an abnormal growth of scar at the site of skin injury, which usually does not regress. It proliferates beyond the original scar. The ear keloid usually develops after piercing injury to wear ornaments. A patient usually asks for removal of keloid, as it is aesthetically unpleasant. Patient may sometimes complain of itching and pain. Aim: The study was conducted to analyze results following excision of keloid with its tract and topical silicone gel as the postsurgical adjuvant...

Jae-Woo Heo, Ung Sik Jin
Treacher Collins syndrome is a congenital disorder that is characterized with a wide range of cranio-facial deformities. Zygomatic hypoplasia or aplasia is one of the key features, and surgical reconstruction of the consequent depression on the zygomatic area is deemed necessary by many patients. Various surgical options are available-injectables, alloplastic materials, autologous grafting, and autogenous tissue transfer. It depends on each patient which technique to use. Here, we present a clinical case, in which bilateral free groin flaps were adopted in attempt to resolve the remnant aesthetic deformity associated with zygomatic depression, despite a series of previous surgical efforts, in a 25-year-old Treacher Collins syndrome male patient...

Breast-conserving therapy, where radiotherapy is performed after partial mastectomy, is a widely used surgical method that can preserve most of the breast tissue without increasing the recurrence rate of breast cancer. However, without reconstruction, asymmetry of the breast occurs due to the tissue defect and radiation fibrosis, producing in poor cosmetic results. In this case study, we performed staged prosthetic breast reconstruction combined with fat grafting for severe depressive deformation of the breast after breast-conserving therapy...

Lipohypertophy (LH) is the most common skin complication of incorrect injection technique which does not only represent an aesthetic defect but also severely disrupts insulin pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics. As a consequence of that, hormone release is delayed and unexplained/unpredictable hypoglycemia occurs, both deteriorating metabolic control while negatively affecting adherence to treatment and quality of life. The economic burden due to unwanted intra-LH injections is accounted for by inappropriately high insulin requirements, increased emergency-related hospitalizations, and loss of work days...

Margit L W Juhász, Ellen S Marmur
BACKGROUND: Patients seek 3-dimensional volume restoration of the jawline to obtain a "defined" line. Injection of filler into the jawline is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration; however, dermatologists have injected this area with positive results, minimal adverse events, and high patient satisfaction. OBJECTIVE: This study explores the efficacy of premixed calcium hydroxylapatite filler with integral lidocaine [CaHA(+)] to correct volume defects of the jawline...

INTRODUCTION: Smile aesthetics is based on numerical, physical, physiological and psychological data regarding beauty, while taking into account the desires of the patient. It is determined by the shape, colour and position of the lips, teeth and gingival tissues. Periodontal examination in both the facial and labial settings supports analysis of the gingival display during natural and forced smiling, the health of the periodontium, the gingival contours, the aesthetic gingival line, and the presence of the papillae...

BACKGROUND: Festoons and malar bags present a particular challenge to the plastic surgeon and commonly persist after the traditional lower blepharoplasty. They are more common than we think and a trained eye will be able to recognize them. Lower blepharoplasty in these patients requires addressing the lid-cheek junction and midcheek using additional techniques such as orbicularis retaining ligament (ORL) and zygomaticocutaneous ligament (ZCL) release, midface lift, microsuction, or even direct excision (Kpodzo e al...

Treating glabellar frown lines with injections of botulinum toxin is the most frequently applied procedure in aesthetic medicine. In addition to its cosmetic effect, botulinum toxin may also positively modulate mood and affect, which may contribute to its popularity. A series of clinical studies has shown that this modulation can be used in the treatment of major depression. After a single glabellar treatment with botulinum toxin, patients suffering from unipolar depression experienced a quick, strong and sustained improvement in the symptoms of depression...

BACKGROUND: Adequate resident training in aesthetic surgery has become increasingly important with rising demand. Chief resident aesthetic clinics allow hands on experience with an appropriate amount of autonomy. The purpose of this study was to compare resident cosmetic clinic outcomes to those reported in the literature. Furthermore, we sought to assess how effective these clinics can be in preparing residents in performing common aesthetic surgery procedures. METHOD: A retrospective chart review of 326 patients and 714 aesthetic procedures in our chief cosmetic clinic over a 13-year period was performed, and complication and revision rates were recorded...

Background: Lid margin asymmetry and its associated compensatory mechanisms might cause patients to seek treatment to improve aesthetics. Surgery might not be indicated and can potentially worsen the asymmetry in these cases. Methods: A case series of three patients was organized to illustrate the use of botulinum toxin administered to the pre-tarsal orbicularis for the correction of micro-ptosis and improved symmetry. The marginal reflex distance and tarsal platform show were measured on both sides. Measurements were made using ImageJ software on standardized frontal photographs taken pre- and post-injection...

BACKGROUND: The tuberous breast syndrome is a condition that affects young women and can bring on serious disorders of self-esteem. There are numerous surgical techniques to correct this condition, but most of them include the use of breast implants to replace lack of volume. Nowadays, patients are increasingly becoming more demanding to get a definitive solution with minimal aesthetic sequelae. METHODS: We present a series of 11 patients with tuberous breast deformities treated with lipofilling technique...

BACKGROUND: Although fingertip injuries account for a high proportion of trauma patients, the correct surgical approach is still debated. This prospective study compares the traditional conservative approach and a new treatment based on the injection of liposuction aspirate fluid (LAF). METHODS: 40 consecutive patients with a fingertip injury were dichotomized into group A (control group: conservative approach) and B (treatment group). Group B underwent liposuction, followed by filtration of the lipoaspirate in a closed device (MyStemEvo®kit), allowing the nonenzymatic separation of LAF, which was then injected at injured site...

Yong Woo Lee, Tae Hwan Park
BACKGROUND: Along with advances in thread lift techniques and materials, ancillary procedures such as fat grafting, liposuction, or filler injections have been performed simultaneously. Some surgeons think that these ancillary procedures might affect the aesthetic outcomes of thread lifting possibly due to inadvertent injury to threads or loosening of soft tissue via passing the cannula in the surgical plane of the thread lifts. The purpose of the current study is to determine the effect of such ancillary procedures on the outcome of thread lifts in the human and cadaveric setting...

Facial fillers are becoming increasingly popular as aesthetic procedures to temporarily reduce the depth of wrinkles or to contour faces. However, even in the hands of very experienced injectors, there is always a small possibility of vascular complications like intra-arterial injection of filler substance. We present a case report of a patient who developed features of vascular obstruction in right infraorbital artery and tell-tale signs of impending skin necrosis, after hyaluronic acid filler injection by an experienced injector...

BACKGROUND: This split-face, controlled study investigated the ability of a topical crosslinked hyaluronic acid formulation (RHA serum) to enhance clinical results from fillers, microneedling, or chemical peeling of aging skin. Previous comparative skin explant studies demonstrated greater efficacy of RHA serum than topical non-crosslinked high or low molecular weight hyaluronic acid in decreasing trans-epidermal water loss, increasing epidermal hydration, and improving corneocyte microstructure...
