BACKGROUND: Preoccupation with a perceived appearance flaw is the main feature of body dysmorphic disorder. The majority of these patients seek and often receive some sort of cosmetic procedure, although this condition is considered to be a contraindication. This study evaluates cosmetic professionals' recognition of body dysmorphic disorder and the way they act on this. METHOD: Members of Dutch professional associations for aesthetic plastic surgery, dermatology, and cosmetic medicine received an online survey by means of their association's digital mailing lists; the survey was completed by 173 respondents...

OBJECTIVE: The Karapandzic flap is an established technique for reconstruction of large lip defects and in our experience is particularly valuable in repair of the upper lateral lip and the commissures as well. We present our experience in a case series of 65 patients under one consultant. METHOD: This is a retrospective study of patients who underwent Karapandzic flap repair for lip defects following cancer resection from 2007 to 2014 in North Yorkshire. A data collection tool was used which incorporated patient demographics, tumour location, histology, complications, resection margins and recurrence including functional and aesthetic outcomes...

Since the introduction of silicone implants, several events have led to considerable uncertainty among the patients, public, and users. So far, however, the necessary steps to significantly improving patient safety have not been taken in any of these cases. Requiring stricter approvals for medical devices, improving monitoring by the regulatory authorities and the revision of the Medical Devices Directive are all initial steps in the right direction towards a change in policy, but are insufficient as an early warning system...

BACKGROUND: In the patient-driven market of aesthetic surgery, an understanding of the factors that patients consider in their choice of surgeon can inform the individual plastic surgeon's marketing strategy. Previous studies have investigated patient gender preferences for physicians in other specialties, but none has investigated whether patients consider gender when choosing a plastic surgeon. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of a plastic surgeon's gender on patient choice...

Autologous fat transfer (AFT) is an appropriate technique for aesthetic rejuvenation of the face, aesthetic enhancement of hands, correction of the facial appearance in various disorders and constitutes a surgical alternative of treatment of numerous breast deformities ranging from distorting posttraumatic scars, post-eczema lesions, post-burn deformities to partial or total breast reconstruction. Our work is aimed to familiarize dermatologists with the technique of harvesting and implanting the aspirate of adipose cells in patients consulted for deformities of the breast...

Postoperative infections are rare after plastic surgery; however, when present, they can affect the aesthetic outcome. Currently, many malpractice lawsuits are associated with surgical site infection. The present study aimed to analyze malpractice claims associated with surgical site infection in the field of plastic surgery through a review of Korean precedents. We analyzed the type of procedure, associated complications, and legal judgment in these cases. Most claimants were women, and claims were most often related to breast surgery...

BACKGROUND: Childhood caries (tooth decay) consists of a form of tooth decay that affects the milk teeth (also known as baby or primary teeth) of children. This may range from tooth decay in a single tooth to rampant caries affecting all the teeth in the mouth. Primary teeth in young children are vital to their development and every effort should be made to retain these teeth for as long as is possible. Dental fillings or restorations have been used as an intervention to repair these damaged teeth...

Congenital agenesis and acquired amputations of upper limb in children are a great traumatic experience in affected families. Patients, families and caregivers are then exposed to many functional and social difficulties. These states require accurate analysis of functional impairment, child's coping skills and therapeutic plan to implement for optimal social integration. These children and their families must be supported since early childhood by multidisciplinary teams. This can require psychological support, the use of an aesthetic and/or functional prosthesis, and occupational therapy...

Nonmelanoma skin cancers are the most common skin cancers in the United States and the most common malignancies afflicting the head and neck region. Reconstruction of resulting defects has significant aesthetic and functional implications, and plastic surgeons are frequently consulted for reconstruction. Reconstruction can be accomplished via a multitude of approaches spanning the reconstructive ladder, and the approach should be individualized based upon both patient-related and defect-related factors. Here the authors propose a simplified approach to facial reconstruction broken down by aesthetic region...

There are growing number of patients attending aesthetic consultations and requesting the rejuvenation of ageing upper lips. Often these patients also have nasal tip ptosis. There are a number of direct and indirect upper lip lifting procedures. We describe a novel technique, which combines upper lip and nasal tip rejuvenation through hidden incisions and the use of suspension micro-screws.

Minimally invasive procedures in an aesthetic practice have grown over the past decade. Plastic surgery practices are embracing the incorporation of injectables and lasers as adjuncts to their surgical procedures. The use of botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid fillers, and lasers has made a significant impact on the authors' practice. The authors describe the important considerations, consultation goals, and procedural steps with injectables and fillers. The novel use of deoxycholic acid injections is also described...

INTRODUCTION: After surgery, the plastic surgeon is very often questioned about how to maintain the result and more frequently how to slow down the aging process. However, this type of knowledge is not commonly delivered during medical education or at least needs an update. This review could be used as a guide to help plastic surgeons to manage these frequent postoperative consultations. The aim of this literature review was to focus discussion on specific positive factors, identified to have a significant impact on human longevity...

BACKGROUND: Recently, several studies have demonstrated that articles that disclose conflicts of interests (COI) are associated with publication of positive results. The purpose of this study was to learn more about the different types of COI as they relate to the general topic of COI in plastic surgery. Specifically, we aimed to examine whether different types of COI are more likely than others to be associated with the presentation of positive findings. METHODS: We reviewed all original articles in Annals of Plastic Surgery, Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery, and Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery from January 1, 2012, to December 31, 2013...
