BACKGROUND: The use of live and cadaveric animal models in surgical training is well established as a means of teaching and improving surgical skill in a controlled setting. We aim to review, evaluate, and summarize the models published in the literature that are applicable to Plastic Surgery training. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A PubMed search for keywords relating to animal models in Plastic Surgery and the associated procedures was conducted. Animal models that had cross over between specialties such as microsurgery with Neurosurgery and pinnaplasty with ear, nose, and throat surgery were included as they were deemed to be relevant to our training curriculum...

Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapidly progressive and life-threatening infection of the deeper skin layers and subcutaneous tissues that moves along the facial planes. OBJECTIVES: We present the rare case of a patient with necrotizing fasciitis associated with high malignancy b-cell lymphoma. Our purpose is to investigate the probable connection between the two pathologies and evaluate the importance of early surgical intervention. CASE REPORT: 51-year old Caucasian woman presented at the E...

BACKGROUND: Cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P) is a common congenital craniofacial anomaly that may negatively affect an individual's appearance, health-related quality of life, or speech. In Spain, Colombia, and Chile the overall prevalence of CL/P ranges from 0.53 to 1.59 cases per 1000 live births. Currently, there is no patient-reported outcome (PRO) instrument that is specific for patients with CL/P. The CLEFT-Q is a new PRO instrument developed to measure outcomes of treatment in patients 8 to 29 years of age with CL/P...

OBJECTIVE: Recently, water jet-assisted liposuction (WAL) was successfully applied by several other authors to remove fat and induce skin contraction in nonfacial body areas. Extending the range of indications for this new method, the authors of this article report on their first experience with its use in facial contouring, fat harvesting, and hydrodissection of the facial skin flap in rhytidectomy in a case series of 25 patients. METHODS: Twenty-five patients (median age: 56 years) had facelift surgery under sedation, and the WAL technique was used for facial contouring, fat harvesting for facial lipotransfer, and hydrodissection of the facial skin flap...

REVIEW
Douglas S Ruhl, Bradley W Kesser
Patients with microtia and congenital aural atresia should have a comprehensive hearing assessment early in life. Options for hearing habilitation should be presented, and children with bilateral aural atresia should be fitted with a bone conducting hearing device to support normal speech and language development. If atresia surgery is pursued, the microtia surgeon must be aware of certain principles. This article presents recommendations on options for potentially improving hearing in children with congenital aural atresia: assessing surgical candidacy; chronology and timing of surgeries; functional importance of certain ear structures; and understanding the possible locations of an aberrant facial nerve to avoid injury in these patients...

Osseointegrated craniofacial implants have improved retention and patients' perceptions of implant-retained nasal prostheses; however, the determination of the available bone sites for implant placement post-rhinectomy is difficult. This case report describes the use of cone beam computed tomography scanning and computer-assisted virtual planning in conjunction with digital photographs for rehabilitation of a facial defect with an implant-retained silicon nasal prosthesis. Two implants were planned in the anatomical area with adequate bone volume to achieve favorable cosmetic outcomes and accessibility for hygiene maintenance...

BACKGROUND: Corrective septorhinoplasty is one of the most common facial plastic surgeries. However, surgeons and patients sometimes disagree about postoperative-outcome satisfaction after corrective septorhinoplasty. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the factors that influenced the disagreement in satisfaction between surgeons and patients after corrective septorhinoplasty. METHODS: Surgeon satisfaction was assessed by other plastic surgeons by comparing patient photographs taken at the preoperative and 12-month postoperative periods...

Importance: Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDSs) are a group of heritable connective tissue disorders. Patients with EDSs can develop excessive facial rhytids, nasal deformities, and facial scarring, for which they may seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon. Ehlers-Danlos syndromes can be associated with serious surgical complications and should be identified preoperatively to facilitate optimal treatment. To our knowledge, no management guidelines for patients with EDSs exist in the facial plastic surgery literature...

Importance: Given the increase in opioid addiction and overdose in the United States, reasoned opioid use after outpatient surgery may affect prescription medication abuse. Objectives: To examine patient use of opioids after rhinoplasty and establish an optimal postrhinoplasty pain management regimen. Design, Setting, and Participants: In this case series, opioid use was evaluated in 62 patients who underwent rhinoplasty performed by 3 fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeons, 2 in private practice in Texas and 1 in an academic setting in Michigan, from February 2016 to September 2016...

OBJECTIVE: To explore a new method of reconstruction of through-and-through cheek defects and to evaluate this method's efficacy and patient prognosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included 70 patients who underwent reconstruction of through-and-through cheek defects. The surgical approach, design of facial skin incisions, selection and design of flaps, postoperative quality of life and prognosis of patients were recorded and reported. RESULTS: Postoperative quality of life gradually increased over time, and the mean scores of University of Washington Quality of Life (UW-QOL) Questionnaire was more than 80 at 1-year postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Over the past decade, plastic surgery programs have continued to evolve with the addition of 1 year of training, increase in the minimum number of required aesthetic cases, and the gradual replacement of independent positions with integrated ones. To evaluate the impact of these changes on aesthetic training, a survey was sent to residents and program directors. METHODS: A 37 question survey was sent to plastic surgery residents at all Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved plastic surgery training programs in the United States...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Facial transplantation is a revolutionary procedure developed recently, which is indicated if autologous transfers fail to restore human appearance. More than 30 patients have undergone facial transplantation in different centers worldwide. Here, we provide an update on its main anatomical, surgical, immunological, ethical, and follow- up aspects. We also provide innovative perspectives of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering that could hold promise for this emerging surgical field...

Sagar Patel, Russell Kridel
Importance: Since its approval by the US Food and Drug Administration for treatment of moderate to severe submental liposis in April 2015, deoxycholic acid (Kybella) has received significant media attention as a novel aesthetic treatment. Four phase 3 clinical trials have published data demonstrating the safety and efficacy of the drug compared with placebo; however, no study has juxtaposed the product with submental liposuction. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of injectable deoxycholic acid in the treatment of isolated submental liposis...

BACKGROUND: The injection of botulinum toxin (BTX) to reduce facial wrinkles is one of the most frequently performed plastic surgery procedures. The biocompatible hydrogels are injected with BTX for effective tissue augmentation. However, it is difficult to determine the interval of injection for effective tissue augmentation. METHOD: BTX and hyaluronate (HA) hydrogels were labeled with zwitterionic (ZW) near-infrared (NIR) fluorophores and visualized for 3 weeks after injection to BALB/c nude mice...

According to a great desire for facial rejuvenation, dermal filler is promising for improving people's appearance without surgery. In a society of plastic surgery, injection of dermal filler is one of the most common procedures for a younger appearance. An increase in patients who have filler injection has been paralleled by a rise in various adverse reactions. Formation of inflammatory or infected nodules is one of the most common long-term complications. Infections can be increased because of improper disinfection of the patient's skin, a poor injection technique, decreased general immunity, and the presence of pathogens...
