#1
Mario Pelle-Ceravolo, Matteo Angelini
Background: The height of the eyebrow is less crucial aesthetically than is the relationship between the lateral and medial portions of the brow. Although various surgical procedures are effective in raising the brow, the authors maintain that transcutaneous brow shaping (TBS) is the only technique that enables precise shaping of the brow and correction of minor asymmetries. Objectives: The authors described their experiences with direct TBS alone or in conjunction with blepharoplasty and facelift...

CONTEXT: Several studies showed, from the clinical point of view, the advantages of the various techniques and surgical approaches to obtain facial rejuvenation. A few studies have highlighted the satisfaction or not of patients who underwent a traditional facelift; however, a long-term follow-up study measuring patient satisfaction with midface-lift surgery has not been published yet. AIMS: The aim of this study is to measure individual patient satisfaction with the midface lift, to find out from each patient his/her level of satisfaction 1 and 5 years after the operation and to compare the results to assess the benefits of the surgery...

Lennert Van Putte, Steven D M Colpaert
BACKGROUND: Ptosis of the earlobe is a common consequence of ageing, defined as an unappealingly large free caudal segment of over 5 mm. It is therefore important to consider reduction as a complement to rhytidectomy in selected patients. Moreover, facelifting operations can result in disproportionate or poorly positioned earlobes. Current earlobe-reducing techniques can leave a scar on the free lateral edge causing notching or involve complex pattern excisions with limited resection capability and the risk of deformities...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the feasibility of non-magnified resection of various benign lesions of the upper neck using the facelift incision without endoscopic equipment to establish indications for the procedure. METHODS: This retrospective analysis examined 86 patients who underwent surgery for upper neck masses using the facelift incision or conventional transcervical incision at our institute between January 2012 and December 2015. RESULTS: We performed 41 operations using facelift incisions (facelift group) and 45 using conventional horizontal incisions (conventional group)...

REVIEW
Andrea Marchesi, Stefano Marcelli, Pier C Parodi, Rosario E Perrotta, Michele Riccio, Luca Vaienti
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...

BACKGROUND: In aesthetic clinical practice, surgical outcome is best measured by patient satisfaction and quality of life. For many years, there has been a lack of validated questionnaires. Recently, the FACE-Q was introduced, and the authors present the largest series of face-lift patients evaluated by the FACE-Q with the longest follow-up to date. METHODS: Two hundred consecutive patients were identified who underwent high-superficial musculoaponeurotic system face lifts, with or without additional facial rejuvenation procedures, between January of 2005 and January of 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 facelift 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...
