INTRODUCTION: The use of a patient's image in plastic surgery is common today. Thus, plastic surgeons should master the use of the image and be aware of the implications of the patients' perception of themselves. The mere-exposure effect is a psychological phenomenon in which a person tends to rate things more positively merely because (s)he is familiar with them. Faces are asymmetric, so faces in photos are different from those observed in mirrors. The main objective of this study was to assess whether patients within a plastic surgery population, particularly those undergoing facial aesthetic surgery, preferred standard photographs or mirror-reversed photographs of themselves...

BACKGROUND: Individuals with facial paralysis of 6 months or more without evidence of clinical or electromyographic improvement have been successfully reanimated utilizing an orthodromic temporalis transfer in conjunction with end-to-side cross-face nerve grafts. The temporalis muscle insertion is released from the coronoid process of the mandible and sutured to a fascia lata graft that is secured distally to the commissure and paralyzed hemilip. The orthodromic transfer of the temporalis muscle overcomes the concave temporal deformity and zygomatic fullness produced by the turning down of the central third of the muscle (Gillies procedure) while yielding stronger muscle contraction and a more symmetric smile...

BACKGROUND: It is becoming more and more accepted that better aesthetic results can be obtained when the lower eyelid is considered as part of the midface when contemplating surgical rejuvenation. Descent of the orbicularis muscle and midface tissue causes malar bags, loss of volume over the tear-trough, apparent vertical lengthening of the lower eyelid, and an accentuation of the orbit-cheek junction. METHODS: We describe a triple-layer technique that effectively corrects these problems, performed under local anesthesia and via a standard subciliary incision, to separately reposition the postseptal fat, suborbicularis oculi fat, and the musculocutaneous layer of skin and orbicularis oculi...

BACKGROUND: Hematoma remains the most challenging complication of facelifting and has been associated with male sex, hypertension, aspirin use, smoking, and high body mass index. Patients who underwent a facelift were studied to determine rates of hematoma and other complications and to identify predictive and protective factors, including meticulous analysis of perioperative blood pressure. METHODS: Charts of patients who underwent a facelift from 2003 to 2011 at our institution were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Aesthetic procedures are significant sources of revenue for plastic surgeons. With the popularity of nonsurgical aesthetic procedures, many plastic surgeons question how to best tailor their aesthetic practice. METHODS: Revenue generated from surgical and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures performed in the United States between 2000 and 2011 was calculated from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' annual reports. Regression analysis was performed against six commonly cited economic indicators...

The study aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of vibration anesthesia for these facial injections. METHODS: This prospective study analyzed 41 patients who received dermal filler injections to the nasolabial folds, tear troughs, cheeks, and other facial sites...
