INTRODUCTION: Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a rare, potentially fatal, infective complication that can occur after surgery. Diagnosis is still difficult and mainly based on clinical data. Only a prompt pharmacological and surgical therapy can avoid dramatic consequences. There are few reports regarding NF as a complication after aesthetic surgical procedures, and a systematic review still lacks. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We have performed a systematic review of English literature on PubMed, covering a period of 30 years...

INTRODUCTION: In aesthetic clinical practice surgical outcome is best measured by patient satisfaction and quality of life (QoL). For many years there has been a lack of validated questionnaires. Recently the FACE-Q was introduced and we present the largest series of facelift patients evaluated by FACE-Q with the longest follow-up to date. MATERIALS/METHODS: 200 consecutive patients were identified who underwent high SMAS facelifts, with or without additional facial rejuvenation procedures, between Jan 2005 and Jan 2015...

BACKGROUND: Facial rejuvenation in patients younger than 50 years of age has experienced an unprecedented growth with multimodality nonsurgical and less invasive rhytidectomy techniques. OBJECTIVES: To analyze the nonsurgical treatment habits of patients prior to undergoing rhytidectomy at <50 years of age. METHODS: Retrospective study to enlist patients who underwent primary rhytidectomy at age <50 years between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2013 by the senior author (AAJ) to complete a survey...

Importance: Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a relative contraindication for facial plastic surgery, but formal screening is not common in practice. The prevalence of BDD in patients seeking facial plastic surgery is not well documented. Objective: To establish the prevalence of BDD across facial plastic and oculoplastic surgery practice settings, and estimate the ability of surgeons to screen for BDD. Design, Setting, and Participants: This multicenter prospective study recruited a cohort of 597 patients who presented to academic and private facial plastic and oculoplastic surgery practices from March 2015 to February 2016...

BACKGROUND: Producing youthful facial appearance by face-lifting often comes along with an undesired loss of patient's individual phenotype. This may result from insufficient preservation of retaining ligaments, the "guardians of facial identify," and from severance of the intersegmental connections of the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), which tether, structure, and compartmentalize facial soft tissue into defined, relevant anatomical zones. METHODS: The technique reported here preserves most retaining ligaments...

OBJECTIVE: The new lift is a procedure for facial rejuvenation with minimal incision, giving the patient a significant improvement of mid face and neck, with limited dissection and minimal scars. A further "One-stitch" of anchorage to the deep temporal fascia is required to hold tissues. By a minimal surgical access, we get a suitable cheek lift with the improvement of nose-labial folds, mandibular edge and neck contour. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between February 2009 and June 2012, 32 patients underwent facial rejuvenation surgery called new lift at a mean age of 46 years (range 35-55 years)...

BACKGROUND: Robotic facelift thyroidectomy (RFT) was developed as a new surgical approach to the thyroid gland using a remote incision site. Early favorable results led to this confirmatory multi-institutional experience. METHODS: Prospectively collected data on consecutive patients undergoing RFT in five North American academic endocrine surgical practices were compiled. Surgical indications, operative times, final pathology, nodule size, complications, and postoperative management (drain use and length of hospital stay) were evaluated...

: Resolution of ptosis is a key step to the success of many plastic surgery procedures. Ptosis is a manifestation of tissue stretch. Tissue stretch can occur as a result of the natural aging process or health of the patient, or tissue may stretch under added weight or volume, such as when implants are placed. Surgical rejuvenation of ptotic tissues is very effective and results in marked changes in the patient profile yet the tissue that resulted in the need for the procedure first place has not improved and ptosis can recur...

The aging face results in increase in laxity of the skin and the underlying supporting tissue. There is a fundamental volume loss in the face and it is most apparent in the midface. A traditional superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) rhytidectomy addresses the laxity of the face but not volume loss. Multivector high SMAS plication allows for natural excess tissue to be placed into the area of volume loss, thereby addressing midface volume loss. This technique is easy to perform, reproducible, and effective with the added benefit of helping to volumize the lower face...

BACKGROUND: What do patients want when looking for an aesthetic surgeon? When faced with attributes like reputation, years in practice, testimonials, photos, and pricing, which is more valuable? Moreover, are attributes procedure-specific? Currently, inadequate evidence exists on which attributes are most important to patients, and to our knowledge, none on procedure-specific preferences. OBJECTIVES: First, to determine the most important attributes to breast augmentation, combined breast/abdominal surgery, and facelift patients using conjoint analysis...

We compared the result of replacement using a modified face-lift technique with those of other commonly used surgical techniques for the treatment of defects of the soft tissue of the infraorbital and cheek region. We made a retrospective observational study of 86 patients who had defects of the facial soft tissue after excision of malignant tumours. Procedures used for reconstructions included non-vascularised skin grafts, local flaps, facelift technique, and microvascular free flaps, and we evaluated morbidity; duration of hospital stay; the need for, and duration of stay in, the intensive care unit (ICU); and functional and aesthetic outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Operating costs are a significant part of delivering surgical care. Having a system to analyze these costs is imperative for decision making and efficiency. We present an analysis of surgical supply, labor and administrative costs, and remuneration of procedures as a means for a practice to analyze their cost effectiveness; this affects the quality of care based on the ability to provide services. The costs of surgical care cannot be estimated blindly as reconstructive and cosmetic procedures have different percentages of overhead...

The primary purpose of the facelift is to restore the shape, volume, and contours of the youthful face. Facelift surgery has evolved over the years into multiple techniques to accomplish the same results. This article discusses the common controversies in facelift surgery and evaluates the best available evidence to guide surgical decision-making. In regard to the salient question of whether there is a "best" technique, the literature suggests that the options are generally equal in efficacy. This highlights the need for high-quality research with standardized preoperative assessment and evaluation of postoperative results to better assess outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Recognition of the effects of aging on the ear and the mechanisms leading to ear deformity associated with facelift procedures aid in achieving improved aesthetic results. In 2009, the author developed a novel rhytidectomy technique to provide more natural-looking results than those achieved through other facelift procedures, which often result in facial and ear distortion/deformity. This technique is designed to optimize aesthetic outcomes by employing incisions hidden within the ear, autologous fat transfer to restore normally lost facial volume, and absorbable bidirectional sutures, all of which allow less skin removal and shorter, more concealable scars within the inside perimeter of the ear, and thus less-distorted facial contours...

The peeling-assisted volume-enhancing (PAVE) lift is a single-stage approach that combines superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) plication techniques with fat grafting and different peeling agents. To evaluate the safety of this approach, we analyzed the records of 159 patients who underwent surgery between 2008 and 2014. The percentage of complications observed was not higher than values reported in the literature for each treatment entity: surgical facelift: n=3 haematomas (1.89 %), n=2; temporary apraxia of the mandibular branch (1...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical feasibility and safety of robot-assisted modified radical neck dissection (MRND) for head and neck cancer patients with a clinically node-positive neck. The cases of 10 head and neck cancer patients who underwent unilateral therapeutic robot-assisted MRND by post-auricular facelift approach were analyzed. The robot-assisted MRND was completed successfully in all patients without any conversion to conventional neck dissection. The mean number of lymph nodes removed was 36...
