Carlo Di Gregorio, Salvatore D'Arpa
BACKGROUND: Earlobe deflation caused by fat atrophy is normally treated with lipofilling, mostly in the context of facelift surgery. In this report, we aim at reporting on Hyaluronic Acid injections to treat earlobe deflation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 16 Mowlawi Grade I and II patients were treated with HA injections, followed by molding to shape the lobule. RESULTS: Effective correction, lasting 14 months on average, is achieved. Five patients needed a touch-up procedure after 4-6 months to improve the result...

BACKGROUND: The significance of complications after superficial parotidectomy remains unclear, since prospective studies are lacking. The aim of this study was to evaluate facial nerve dysfunction and other postoperative complications after superficial parotidectomy for pleomorphic adenoma of the superficial lobe and to identify the associated risk factors. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Prospective and descriptive clinical study on 79 patients undergoing formal superficial parotidectomy with the modified facelift incision, dissection of the facial nerve and reconstruction with the superficial musculoaponeurotic system flap...

Jong Hun Lee, Yu Gil Park, Eun Soo Park
BACKGROUND: Botulinum toxin is used extensively, and its use for aesthetic indications in the lower face and neck is now becoming increasingly popular. It is the ideal alternative to surgical procedures for patients who are too young for facelift surgery or who are unwilling to take recuperation time. We review current approaches to BTX A treatment for horizontal neck lines. METHODS: Subjects were 20 women with an average age of 43 with mild to moderate horizontal neck lines but have had no treatment by BTX A for the past 3 months...

Zhiwei Zheng, Jun Li, Jinbing Wang, Jian Sun
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this article was to propose a V-shaped minimal facelift incision (FLI) and analyze its efficacy for improving the esthetic outcomes of parotid gland tumors. METHODS: A prospective, nonrandomized study was performed. Forty-six patients with category I benign parotid tumors as to Quer classification (3 cm or less and located superficially and/or peripherally in the gland) were enrolled. The 46 patients who underwent dissection of parotid gland tumors were divided into 2 groups: minimal FLI (group 1) and modified Blair incision (MBI, group 2)...

Sean Delaney, Russell W H Kridel
Background: The midface is particularly prone to the senescent changes of soft tissue ptosis and volume loss, which in individuals with aging or low adiposity can manifest as submalar hollowing. Facelift alone in those with submalar hollowing inadequately addresses the volume loss and may result in a gaunt appearance postoperatively. Submalar implant augmentation is a powerful tool for permanent midface volume restoration for a more youthful and natural contour, as opposed to soft tissue fillers that diminish over time...

BACKGROUND: Facial aging is a complex process influencing every layer of the facial structure. Most accepted surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation involve certain manipulation of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). Out of these SMAS-based techniques, SMAS plication or suspension provides excellent outcomes with shorter convalescence and fewer potential complications. Herein, we would like to present our own technique combining SMAS plication, periauricular purse-string, and malar fat pad elevation technique for mid and lower facelift...

The author has modified previously described techniques of the superior suspension of the platysma muscle to Lore's fascia by developing an auriculoplastysmal fascial flap, which detaches the posterior platysma from its retaining ligaments to the sternomastoid muscle. Anterior to this flap, the platysma muscle is undermined and suture captured with three throws of a permanent 2.0 Tevdek suture. This suture and its three throws are fixed anterior to the tragus, which includes Lore's fascia and on tightening elevates the whole of the anterior neck as well as defines the cervicomental angle...

Advertising a plastic surgery practice on social media is fraught with both practical and ethical challenges. We use an institutional betrayal framework to explore the range of potential harms to patient well-being while also considering the pitfalls of social media activity, especially marketing, for practitioners. We also give consideration to the relative benefits that such online patient-clinician relationships can provide. In our analysis, we draw on specific examples of plastic surgery procedures prominently featured on social media, including the Vampire Facelift® ...

BACKGROUND: Adequate resident training in aesthetic surgery has become increasingly important with rising demand. Chief resident aesthetic clinics allow hands on experience with an appropriate amount of autonomy. The purpose of this study was to compare resident cosmetic clinic outcomes to those reported in the literature. Furthermore, we sought to assess how effective these clinics can be in preparing residents in performing common aesthetic surgery procedures. METHOD: A retrospective chart review of 326 patients and 714 aesthetic procedures in our chief cosmetic clinic over a 13-year period was performed, and complication and revision rates were recorded...

Purpose: The aims of this study were to characterize the histology of the sideburn and cheek area and to measure the force required to pull the superficial fascia (SF) of Asians in facelift procedures. Methods: The hemiface of a formalin-fixed Korean male adult cadaver (77 years old) was used to study the histology of the sideburn and cheek area. In 42 patients during facelift procedures, the force needed to pull the overlying skin at the midpoint between the sideburn and nasolabial fold 2 mm was measured using a tensiometer...

Determining which facelift procedures yield the most long-term rejuvenating effects and stability over time is an important question in cosmetic surgery: does radical and invasive surgery produce the most long-lasting results? The experience of our team suggests that using a combination of various techniques (liposuction, lipectomy, myotomies, suspensions, tissular induction techniques) appears to be essential to achieve satisfactory, lasting results. In this paper, we describe the lower facelift and neck rejuvenation combined method...

Background: Inadequate release of retaining ligaments during facelift surgery may lead to an unnatural appearance. However, most facelift surgeons are hesitant in transecting these ligaments to avoid possible injury to facial subbranches. Objectives: In our surgical practice for modified composite flap rhytidectomy we use the finger-assisted malar elevation (FAME) technique in order to enable safe release of the zygomatic cutaneous ligaments through the prezygomatic space under direct vision...

The aim of this study is to search for the origin of the term "ligament' in the face, present its status, and suggest a principle to rectify the use of unclear terminology.The structure that connects the zygoma to the skin was first presented by McGregor (1959). Kaye (1981), in describing his "extended facelift," wrote that the adherent area of the cheek over the malar eminence (McGregor's patch) usually requires sharp dissection. Bosse (1987) reported that the zygomatic ligament is quite solidly bound to the malar eminence and usually requires sharp dissection to release it...

BACKGROUND: In 2006, Villa et al. published a review article concerning the use of thread-lift sutures and concluded that the technique was still in its infancy but had great potential to become a useful and effective procedure for nonsurgical lifting of sagged facial tissues. As 11 years have passed, the authors now performed again a systematic review to determine the real scientific current state of the art on the use of thread-lift sutures. METHODS: A systematic review was performed according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines using the PubMed database and using the Medical Subject Headings search term "Rhytidoplasty...

There has been a growing number of patients asking for a lighter face lift than the classical biplane procedure with wide undermining; This explains the popularity of medical threads lifts. A surgical approach is nevertheless possible by performing a new technique, derived from minilfts, but with a dissection elevating skin and SMAS layers together, preserving as much retaining ligaments as possible, and allowing a predesigned skin excision. Thirty-two patients have been operated this way since 2014; 3 asked and sustained for a redo because of skin relapse at one year postoperatively...

Background: Minimally invasive facelift techniques involving barbed suture insertion have become popular among patients who wish to correct facial tissue ptosis. Objectives: The authors sought to determine the effectiveness, longevity, complications, and postoperative sequelae associated with facelift by means of barbed polydioxanone (PDO) threads. Methods: A total of 160 consecutive patients who underwent facelift with barbed threads were evaluated retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Smoking is considered to be a significant risk factor for the development of postoperative complications after various surgical procedures, mainly by limiting oxygen delivery to tissues. Evidence on the collective impact of smoking in aesthetic procedure outcomes is scarce. The aim of this study is to evaluate the current evidence on the association between smoking and postoperative outcomes in patients who underwent common elective procedures in plastic surgery. METHODS: PubMed and Cochrane bibliographical databases were searched from January 1950 to October 2016 for studies reporting on patients who underwent facelift, abdominoplasty, breast reduction and breast reconstruction and for studies with included data on smoking history of treated patients...

Patients with thick skin typically present with a redundant, baggy, lax skin envelope together with prominent nasolabial folds, jowls, and a heavy neck. Durable and natural-appearing rejuvenation is not possible unless the deformities are addressed adequately and harmoniously in these patients. Traditional superficial musculoaponeurotic system techniques do not include surgical release of the zygomatic cutaneous ligaments and repositioning of descendent malar fat pad, and may lead to an unbalanced, unnatural appearance and the lateral sweep phenomenon...
