Paraskevas Kontoes, George Gounnaris
Autologous fat grafting is quite common for breast augmentations as well as for reconstructive breast surgery. Coleman has described the surgical technique of fat grafting. Fat is harvested, and after centrifugation and refinement, blunt infiltration cannulas are used to place the fat through small incisions. The grafted tissue is placed in small aliquots with each withdrawal of the cannula. In order to achieve an aesthetically pleasing contour of the breast, the fat should be layered into different levels from the chest wall to the skin...

Alveolar ridge deficiency is a common clinical consequence following tooth loss due to chronic periodontitis complicating ideal implant placement. Advanced hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures have been developed in the recent past with predictable clinical outcomes. A male patient presented with a Grade III mobile upper right central incisor associated with advanced bone loss and soft tissue deficit. Following extraction of tooth #11, socket augmentation was done using an autogenous cortico-cancellous block graft and subsequent soft tissue augmentation was done with palatal connective tissue graft...

Radiation therapy is a critical component of breast cancer management following breast-conserving surgery. Post-radiation sequelae are greater in women with larger breasts, given the need for higher doses and dosing heterogeneity. The goal of breast reconstruction post-mastectomy is to improve the quality of life and add no more health risk. The optimal reconstruction should make the patient feel as natural as possible. Reconstruction of a large-sized breast with aesthetically satisfactory outcome poses a challenge to the breast surgeon...

The problem of technical complications in implants and implant-supported restorations has existed for decades. The most frequent complication is the loosening of the fixing screw, which although is not catastrophic, if it occurs repeatedly, it may affect the success of the implant therapy and the patient satisfaction. Factors that affect the frequency of prosthetic complications include: the implant-abutment connection, para-functional habits, cantilevers, and the type of restoration. Regarding the implant-abutment connection, the first systems were those with an external hexagon...

BACKGROUND: Since their introduction in 1993, anatomical implants have provided a more natural appearance in breast augmentation, and many surgeons advocate their use and promote the good aesthetic results. However, the risk of implant rotation makes some of them reluctant to use these devices. The rotation rate varies among authors. METHODS: The authors present a 6.5-year series of 531 patients who underwent primary breast augmentation with macrotextured anatomical implants in a Swedish facility performed by one consultant surgeon (P...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy permits complete preservation of the nipple-areola complex with excellent aesthetic results and with oncologic safety similar to that associated with traditional mastectomy techniques. However, outcomes have not been directly compared for tissue expander-, immediate implant-, and autologous tissue-based breast reconstruction after nipple-sparing mastectomy. METHODS: All patients undergoing nipple-sparing mastectomy from 2006 to June of 2016 were identified at a single institution...

PATIENT: This report describes the case of a 68 year old female patient who presented with the chief complaint of difficulty in chewing and poor aesthetics due to missing teeth. The patient was interested in saving the remaining natural teeth and desired minimal tissue coverage from the prosthesis. After consideration of all the factors involved, it was deemed advisable to resort to a palate free maxillary telescopic complete denture and a mandibular removable partial denture. DISCUSSION: Considering the age of the patient and the cost involved, implant supported prosthesis was ruled out as a treatment option for the patient...

The use of zirconium oxide in dental implantology is rapidly increasing as it is regarded as being more aesthetical and biologically friendly than titanium oxide. The interaction of titanium oxide with cells and proteins has proven to be significantly affected by the inevitable atmospheric hydrocarbon contamination, defined as biological ageing. The latter has proven to be effectively reversed by UVC irradiation. Crystal structures of both Zr and Ti oxides are very similar, thus also ZrO2 is prone to contamination by hydrocarbons...

OBJECTIVE: The use of autologous fat as a soft tissue filler has increased over the past decade in both reconstructive and aesthetic surgeries. Enhancement of autologous fat grafts with the addition of the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) has been reported to improve long-term volume retention. Stromal vascular fraction is most commonly isolated using enzymatic digestion, but it is unknown what effect the digestion process has on the adipocytes and SVF cells that comprise the graft. Some clinicians have reported use of enzymatically digested fat grafts to alter the physical properties of the tissue in specialized applications...
