BACKGROUND: The inframammary fold (IMF) incision is widely used in Western countries for breast augmentation surgery, whereas the axillary incision is the dominant approach used in China, because many Chinese surgeons believe that the Asian population has a higher risk of developing hypertrophic scars. However, comparative data of scar assessment through different incisions in Chinese patients are scarce. The aims of the study were as follows: (1) to evaluate the outcomes of scar assessment using the Vancouver scar scale (VSS), combined with patient satisfaction scoring, in the scar assessment after breast augmentation surgery; (2) to compare the long-term cosmetic effects of surgical scars between axillary and IMF incisions...

BACKGROUND: Asian patients often desire reduction of the base and alar lobules of the Asian mesorrhine nose. Sill excision is commonly used, but may result in an angular or notched nostril rim. METHODS: We developed an internal method of alar base reduction involving triangle flaps for sill resection. This method avoids alar rim notching and teardrop deformity. Cinching sutures and double-layer closure avoid tension on the wound. We categorized the results in 50 patients (4 men, 46 women) who underwent surgery between November 2012 and August 2015 and who could be followed up for more than 3 months...

BACKGROUND: Direct brow lift surgery remains popular among Asian women despite its disadvantages. The traditional direct brow lift by a supra-brow incision is not suitable for Asian women because of their unique facial features, such as higher eyebrows, wider upper eyelids, and more orbital fat. Therefore, we designed a novel brow lift technique via a supra-brow combined with an infra-brow approach for Asian women. METHODS: An area of skin above and below the eyebrow was measured, demarcated, and surgically removed...

Varicoceles had been recognized in clinical practice for over a century. Originally, these procedures were utilized for the management of pain but, since 1952, the repairs had been mostly for the treatment of male infertility. However, the diagnosis and treatment of varicoceles were controversial, because the pathophysiology was not clear, the entry criteria of the studies varied among centers, and there were few randomized clinical trials. Nevertheless, clinicians continued developing techniques for the correction of varicoceles, basic scientists continued investigations on the pathophysiology of varicoceles, and new outcome data from prospective randomized trials have appeared in the world's literature...

BACKGROUND: From perspectives of differences in anatomic and cultural characteristics from Caucasians, Asians have been considered to undergo facial bone contouring surgery of the zygoma and mandible and fat grafting in the anterior mimetic area of midface. We have sought to develop more ready-to-use methods for increasing the applicability of custom facial implants in the field of esthetic surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed insertion of custom silicone implants after taking a clinical history and photographs in a total of seven patients (n = 7) between March 2008 and July 2014...

BACKGROUND: Although the fat-pad-sliding method reported by Loeb and the "arcus marginalis release with preservation of orbital fat" method reported by Hamra are useful techniques for correcting tear trough deformity in the Asian population, including Japanese patients, occasional cases of tear-trough deformity have persisted even after surgery. To solve this problem, the authors developed a novel orbicularis oculi muscle overlap method, which has enabled them to obtain good results. METHODS: The orbicularis oculi muscle overlap method was performed for 10 patients (9 women and 1 man) with prominent tear-trough deformity...

BACKGROUND: Pretarsal fullness of the lower eyelid has recently gained popularity in the Asian population. Hyaluronic acid injection is a simple, nonsurgical method for creating pretarsal fullness of the lower eyelid, but the effects last only 6-12 months. A need exists for a surgical procedure with long-term effects. We describe the use of a deep temporal fascia graft for subciliary augmentation of the lower eyelid. METHODS: Between September 2009 and October 2011, seven Japanese patients underwent subciliary augmentation of the lower eyelid...
