Importance: Though it has been a common practice to use sharp needles to administer local anesthesia for upper blepharoplasty, the evidence for their benefit is lacking. Objective: To evaluate whether there is any benefit of using blunt-needle injection for local anesthesia when performing upper blepharoplasty to reduce postoperative bruise, hematoma, and pain. Design, Setting, and Participants: Randomized clinical trial of 44 patients who underwent bilateral upper blepharoplasty in an academic medical setting were randomized to receive local anesthesia injections (lidocaine, 2%; 27-gauge needle) with a blunt needle in one eyelid and a sharp needle in the other eyelid...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide and the leading cause of cancer death. With the development of targeted therapy against causative driver mutations, some patients have experienced dramatic responses that have converted their disease into a chronic, stable form. Shifting concerns away from survival and back to quality-of-life issues has led some of these patients to seek aesthetic surgery. METHODS: Three patient examples are presented to illustrate current lung cancer treatment modalities, disease responses, and subsequent experiences with aesthetic surgical procedures...

PURPOSE: Traditionally, eyelid skin incisions with electro-cautery devices have been avoided due to the concerns of aesthetically unacceptable scar formation. The purpose of this study is to compare ecchymosis, cosmesis, and histologic tissue damage of incisions made with a scalpel or Colorado needle in patients undergoing upper and lower aesthetic blepharoplasty. To the best of authors' knowledge, no previous study has been performed before to compare these 2 modalities in aesthetic blepharoplasty surgery...

BACKGROUND: The creation of a superior palpebral crease has been the most popular plastic surgery procedure in Asians for several decades. The most important criterion for judging the success of this procedure is the achievement of the desired size and shape of this crease or the perfect crease width. However, the determinants of crease width remain unclear, which may account for the high rate of unsatisfactory results. METHODS: Standard images were used to study the anatomic parameters, including crease width, crease height, and upper eyelid movement distance (ULMD) at the midpupillary axis, of the inherent double eyelid crease in 32 Chinese women aged 19-26 years...
