Abnormal scars are a common complication of the wound healing process, associated with aesthetic, functional and psychological morbidities. The constant development of our understanding of the pathophysiology of scars has led to the development of different treatment modalities and protocols. Treatment during the early stages of wound healing is considered scar prevention and is associated with better cosmetic results than older mature scars. Several studies have demonstrated optimal results with therapeutic protocols combining different treatment modalities, the most important of them being laser technology...

This essay considers Clare Best's poetic sequence Self-portrait without Breasts (2011) and her collaboration with photographer Laura Stevens, which explore preventive surgery and questions of genetics/hereditary breast cancer. In an era when risk and cosmetic reconstruction guide treatment and the development of new breast cancer subjects, Best reclaims the "flat simple scarred chest with no extras." I situate her poems in the context of statistics and the neoliberal postfeminist subject as well as in a poetic tradition about the post-mastectomy body as landscape...

The umbilicus contributes significantly to the cosmetic appearance of the abdomen especially in women. Loss of umbilicus may result not only in cosmetic disfigurement but also in significant psychological effects. Omphalectomy may accompany certain surgical procedures like ventral hernia repairs and abdominoplasty. For such patients, many techniques have been described by various authors in literature for creation of a neoumbilicus for good cosmetic appearance. In this report, we describe how a laparoscopic port site was utilized to create a neoumbilicus in a patient who required omphalectomy as a part of large umbilical hernia repair...

BACKGROUND: Currently, the isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid) package insert contains language advising the discontinuation of isotretinoin for 6 months before performing cosmetic procedures, including waxing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser procedures, or incisional and excisional cold-steel surgery. It is common practice to follow this standard because of concerns regarding reports of sporadic adverse events and increased risk of scarring. OBJECTIVE: To develop expert consensus regarding the safety of skin procedures, including resurfacing, energy device treatments, and incisional and excisional procedures, in the setting of concurrent or recent isotretinoin use...

BACKGROUND: Septal perforation closure is still often invasive and complex, with relatively low closure rates. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to provide the first results of a case series of 20 patients with nasal septal perforations who underwent septal perforation repair by both an open and a minimally invasive technique by using a graft that consisted of temporoparietal fascia and a polydioxanone (PDS) plate without mucosal flaps. Between 2014 and 2016, we tested, for the first time, the feasibility of the insertion of this graft via a hemitransfixion incision at our institution...

BACKGROUND: Infantile hemangioma (IH) is a benign neoplasm that causes scarring and cosmetic problems after spontaneous regression. Therefore, aggressive treatments such as laser irradiation and corticosteroid have been used; however, recently, the effect of propranolol has been widely noticed. In this study, the authors applied propranolol to low-birth-weight infants with IHs and evaluated its effect. METHODS: Four low-birth-weight infants having IH were selected, with birth weights ranging from 582 to 814 g (average 703 g)...

Verrucae are benign epithelial proliferations, characteristically 1-20 mm in diameter, caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) infection occurring on the skin and mucosa (Photomed Laser Surg 33(6):338-42, 2015; Lasers Med Sci 29(3):1111-6, 2014). Prevalence of verrucae is 5-20% in children and young adults with peak incidence reported during teenage years (Lasers Med Sci 29(3):1111-6, 2014; J Am Acad Dermatol 22(4):547-66, 1990; J Korean Med Sci 24(5):889-93, 2009). Patients often express significant displeasure with quality of life due to this cosmetic insecurity, as well as functional problems and physical discomfort when they occur on palms of hands and soles of feet...

Humaid Ahmad, Sheeraz Shakoor Siddiqui
Skin carbuncles are debilitating skin infections commonly seen in elderly patients with diabetes. These infections develop when a cluster of adjacent furuncles coalesce to form one inflammatory mass. While they commonly occur on the nape of the neck and back, rarer sites involving the face and head have been noted. Management of these rare sites is urgent because of the potential intracranial complications and the surgical outcome is often unsatisfactory due to associated facial scarring. Intraoral drainage is advocated to avoid this; however, when the carbuncle involves a larger area, debridement from the exterior is necessary...

Scar is a common complication in wound healing process, and how to effectively prevent and treat it is a hot and difficult problem in burns and plastic surgery field. Botulinum toxin type A is a neurotoxin that has been widely and effectively used in the cosmetic surgery field such as anti-wrinkle and thin face. In recent years, botulinum toxin type A has been applied in prevention and treatment of scar, which causes a great concern. Nowadays, the relevant reports have gradually increased, and the mechanisms have been explored more deeply...

Patients with large benign melanocytic lesions located on the neck represent a therapeutic challenge since the neck is a high-risk area for hypertrophic scarring and/or retraction. When treating a benign, extensive and visible melanocytic lesion, the choice of therapy mainly depends on the likelihood of improved cosmesis. We report a case of a 33-year-old woman with a medium-sized Nevus Spilus located on the neck, successfully treated with four sessions of pulsed dye laser. We achieved an excellent clinical and cosmetic result in such a challenging area...
