  • The Balcony Technique of Breast Augmentation and Inverted-T Mastopexy With
           an Inferior Dermoglandular Flap
    • Authors: de Vita R; Zoccali G, Buccheri E.
      Abstract: BackgroundOptimal breast augmentation-mastopexy involves a reliable technique, fast recovery, minimal complications, and aesthetic results that are excellent and enduring.ObjectivesThe authors sought to determine whether the balcony technique of augmentation-mastopexy was safe and yielded satisfactory long-term outcomes in patients with breast ptosis and hypoplasia.MethodsThe authors conducted a retrospective review of 207 patients who underwent subglandular augmentation and inverted-T mastopexy with a customized Wise keyhole resection pattern and an inferior flap. Patient satisfaction was assessed anonymously on a visual analog scale via a questionnaire administered 4 years postoperatively.ResultsA total of 182 women received follow-up for 48 months and were included in statistical analyses. High levels of satisfaction were determined using Fischer exact test for breast shape, size, and symmetry, but not for other items, such as scar appearance, body perception, or self-esteem. The most common complications were Baker II capsular contracture and wound dehiscence. No patient experienced nipple loss or skin flap necrosis.ConclusionsThe results of this long-term analysis demonstrate that the balcony technique of augmentation-mastopexy is suitable for patients with breast ptosis and hypoplasia.Level of Evidence: 4

  • Does the Supine Position Affect the Nasal Profile in Rhinoplasty
           Patients' A Comparison of Nasal Anthropometric Measurements in
           Different Body Positions
    • Authors: Kim S; Ryu I, Kim S, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundRhinoplasty surgeons are aware that the nasal profile differs according to body position, namely, the erect position in the consultation room vs the supine position on the operating table. It is not clear whether this difference is caused by an optical illusion or skin laxity due to positional change.ObjectivesTo evaluate anthropometric measurements of the nose with different body positions and determine whether the supine position affects the nasal profile.MethodsIn this retrospective study, 103 patients who underwent primary rhinoplasty were enrolled. Preoperatively, all patients underwent lateral cephalography in the erect position, and facial computed tomography (CT), in the supine position. We measured four nasal anthropometric parameters (the nasofrontal, nasolabial, and nasomental angles, and Simon’s ratio) on lateral cephalograms and facial CT images, and compared these parameters between the two body positions.ResultsThe nasofrontal angle was greater on facial CT than on cephalograms (P < 0.01). This difference was not related to age, sex, or body mass index (P > 0.05 each). We found no significant difference (P > 0.05) between the two positions in the nasolabial angle, nasomental angle, or Simon’s ratio.ConclusionsThe supine position does affect the nasal profile, especially in the radix area. Surgeons need to consider this difference in patients undergoing rhinoplasty.Level of Evidence: 2

  • Academic Productivity: A Guide for Students, Residents, and Fellows
    • Authors: Leland H; Gould D, Wolfswinkel E, et al.
      Abstract: Plastic surgery is a unique specialty where innovation and research lie at its core. As such, plastic surgeons are routinely encouraged at all stages of their careers to contribute to research within the specialty. Time constraints and demands of practice, at all stages, including residency, fellowship, and early practice can make research feel impossible. In residency, protected time off is required to develop a system to be academically productive and several residency programs have built in that year of research as a requirement for graduation. Meanwhile, fellowship is often a one-year-long training, and submissions for The Aesthetic Meeting for The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery are due in October, the same time as the written boards. This generates significant pressure at the start of the fellowship to write and contribute. Early practice is a time of board collections and focus, as well as hard work, which all can take away from focus on research. Here we seek to provide an outline and some advice to help develop a research collaborative and a culture that permits exponential growth in contributions to the literature.1 Whether the author is a student, resident, fellow, or young attending, we suggest the following tips for guidance toward success in academic productivity:

  • Commentary on: Outcome After Breast Reduction Considering Body Mass Index
           and Resection Amount
    • Authors: Papadopoulos T.
      Abstract: Macromastia is a common condition seen by plastic surgeons, therefore, this condition carries important burdens in health-related quality of life (HRQL).1-3 The majority of women evaluated for breast reduction seek surgery for relief of the physical symptoms associated with macromastia including pain in the back, neck, and shoulders, intertrigo and shoulder grooving. Often these women with symptomatic macromastia will also display signs of decreased physical activity, poor general health and nutrition, as well as, diminished self-esteem. In some respects, the psychological and social implications of macromastia may be more damaging than the physical symptoms. Surgical intervention may often do more for these patients than simply reducing the size of their breasts and ameliorating their physical ailments. In this light, the current article was designed to evaluate both the short- and long-term effects of breast reduction using the variables of body mass index (BMI) and breast reduction amount (BRA) (the proportion of resected breast tissue weight to the patient’s body weight). This is an interesting article that brings up many points about breast reduction surgery outcomes, some of which are logical and some warrant further discussion and research.

  • Commentary on: Labia Majora Augmentation: A Systematic Review of the
           Literature
    • Authors: Hamori C.
      Abstract: Labiaplasty or reduction of the labia minora has been the focus of aesthetic vulvar surgeons for years, reflected in the abundance of publications describing surgical resection techniques, outcomes, and complications. The outer lips or labia majora, clitoral hood, and the introitus contribute as well to the overall aesthetic of the female perineum yet procedures to enhance these structures are scarcely described in the literature. The perceived gold standard for vulvar beauty is smooth, plump, and narrowly effaced labia majora, small tucked-in labia minora and a deprojected clitoral hood (Figure 1).

  • Outcome After Breast Reduction Considering Body Mass Index and Resection
           Amount
    • Authors: Bayramiçli M; Şirinoğlu H, Yalçın D.
      Abstract: BackgroundIt is presumed that breast reduction improves patients’ quality of life and promotes weight loss. Preoperative body mass index (BMI) and the amount of breast tissue (breast reduction amount [BRA]) in proportion to the patient’s body weight are important variables to affect the breast reduction outcome.ObjectiveThis study was designed to evaluate the short and long-term effects of breast reduction from the perspective of BMI and BRA.MethodsOne hundred fifty-seven consecutive patients were invited to participate in the study. All clinical information was recorded on a breast surgery form. Patients completed a standardized questionnaire preoperatively, at postoperative year 1, and after postoperative year 5. Patients were grouped according to their BMI as “normal weight” and “overweight” and according to BRA as “minor/moderate reductions” and “major reductions.” The differences in the BMI values and the life scores were compared between the BMI and BRA groups.ResultsSixty-four patients were included in the study. Postoperative year 1 BMIs were significantly lower than both the preoperative BMIs and postoperative year 5+ BMIs. The year 1 BMI decrease in the major reduction group was higher than the decrease in the minor/moderate reduction group. The postoperative life scores of all subgroups were better than the preoperative life scores.ConclusionsReduction mammaplasty has a significant effect on short-term weight loss and the improvement in lifestyle. Patients tend to return to their original body weight in the long term. BRA is a significant variable in short-term weight loss, but neither BMI nor BRA has any other significant effect on the outcome in any time section.Level of Evidence: 4

  • Treatment of Gastrocnemius Muscle Hypertrophy with Botulinum Toxin
           Injection Followed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging Assessment and
           3-Dimensional Evaluation
    • Authors: Bogari M; Tan A, Xin Y, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundHypertrophy of the gastrocnemius muscle is considered to be a hindrance to lower leg beauty in the Asian aesthetic market. A noninvasive technique that has been gaining recognition involves botulinum toxin A injection; however, there are no proper guidelines or standardized protocols for the administration of botulinum toxin to correct gastrocnemius hypertrophy.ObjectivesThis study sought to determine the most effective botulinum toxin injection method for correcting the contour of the lower leg calf, as well as to determine the dose that can produce the maximum effect in meeting the demands of the physician and patient.MethodsEighteen female patients aged between 18 and 35 years were enrolled in this study from January 2015 to July 2015. Two injection methods were compared: (I) 48 injection points with a distance of 2 cm between every point; and (II) 10 injection points. Magnetic resonance imaging examinations were conducted at baseline prior to treatment and at one month and 6 months after treatment. A 3-dimensional study was performed to analyze the volumetric changes.ResultsThe most effective and significant treatment method for hypertrophic gastrocnemius muscle was the 48-point method (scattering injection). Following injection, this method exhibited a significant level of satisfaction with outcome.ConclusionsOur study reveals that injection dosage and method have a strong relationship with achieving a better contouring result.Level of Evidence: 3

  • Tissue Expansion Using Hyaluronic Acid Filler for Single-Stage Ear
           Reconstruction: A Novel Concept for Difficult Areas
    • Authors: Inbal A; Lemelman B, Millet E, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundAuricular reconstruction is one of the most challenging procedures in plastic surgery. An adequate skin envelope is essential for cartilage framework coverage, yet few good options exist without additional surgery. We propose a novel method for minimally invasive tissue expansion, using hyaluronic acid (HA) filler to allow for single-stage ear reconstruction.ObjectivesTo introduce the novel concept of HA filler for tissue expansion in ear reconstruction, and as an alternative to traditional expansion techniques.MethodsMacrolane is a large particle HA gel developed for large volume restoration. Expansion of the non-hair-bearing mastoid skin was performed in our clinic weekly or every other week. Final expansion was completed one week prior to reconstructive surgery. Tissue from one patient’s expanded pocket was sent for histological analysis.ResultsTen patients underwent single-stage auricular reconstruction with preoperative expansion. Injection sessions ranged from 7 to 13 (mean, 9.7). Mean injected volume per session was 2.03 mL per patient, for an average total of 19.8 mL (range, 14.5-30 mL). There were no major complications. One minor complication required removal of exposed wire from the antihelix in the office. Hematoxylin and eosin stain revealed similar histology to that seen with traditional expanders.ConclusionsThis novel expansion technique using serial HA injections allowed for optimized skin coverage in single-stage ear reconstruction. The concept of tissue expansion using HA filler is a new frontier for research that may be applicable to other arenas of reconstruction.Level of Evidence: 4

  • The Value of a Resident Aesthetic Clinic: A 7-Year Institutional Review
           and Survey of the Chief Resident Experience
    • Authors: Weissler J; Carney M, Yan C, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundWith the evolving plastic surgery training paradigm, there is an increasing emphasis on aesthetic surgery education during residency. In an effort to improve aesthetic education and to encourage preparation for independent practice, our institution has supported a resident-run aesthetic clinic for over two decades.ObjectivesTo provide insight into the educational benefits of a resident-run cosmetic clinic through longitudinal resident follow up and institutional experiential review.MethodsA retrospective review was conducted to identify all clinic-based aesthetic operations performed between 2009 and 2016. To capture residents’ perspectives on the cosmetic resident clinic, questionnaires were distributed to the cohort. Primary outcome measures included: volume and types of cases performed, impact of clinic experience on training, confidence level performing cosmetic procedures, and satisfaction with chief clinic. Unpaired t tests were calculated to compare case volume/type with level of confidence and degree of preparedness to perform cosmetic procedures independently.ResultsOverall, 264 operations performed by 18 graduated chief residents were reviewed. Surveys were distributed to 28 chief residents (71.4% completion rate). Performing twenty or more clinic-based procedures was associated with higher levels of preparedness to perform cosmetic procedures independently (P = 0.037). Residents reported the highest confidence when performing cosmetic breast procedures when compared to face/neck (P = 0.005), body/trunk procedures (P = 0.39), and noninvasive facial procedures (P = 0.85).ConclusionsThe continued growth of aesthetic surgery highlights the need for comprehensive training and preparation for the new generation of plastic surgeons. Performing cosmetic procedures in clinic is a valuable adjunct to the traditional educational curriculum and increases preparedness and confidence for independent practice.

  • Personal Evolution in Thighplasty Techniques for Patients Following
           Massive Weight Loss
    • Authors: Xie S; Small K, Stark R, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundLockwood described the importance of Colles’ fascia anchoring in medial thighplasty to reduce morbidity associated with the procedure. However, this maneuver may still have complications including traumatic dissection, prolonged edema, and potential wound healing ramifications form increased tension. Alternatively, we suggest orienting tension in medial thighplasty for massive weight loss (MWL) patients in the horizontal vector rather than a vertical direction, negating the need for Colles’ fascia anchoring.ObjectivesTo compare the morbidities, complications, and outcomes between Colles’ fascia suture fixation (CFSF) and horizontal vector fixation (HVF) in medial thighplasties in MWL patients.MethodsA retrospective chart review was conducted on an Institutional Review Board approved database of MWL patients who had medial thighplasty between October 2004 and March 2014. Patient demographics and surgical outcomes were reviewed between those MWL patients with CFSF and HVF.ResultsOf 65 post-MWL patients, 26 (40.0%) patients were in the CFSF group, and 39 (60.0%) patients were in the HVF group. The 2 groups had statistically equivocal preoperative characteristics and comorbidities. Intraoperatively, the HVF group had increased use of barbed suture (92.3% vs 30.6%, P < 0.0001) and liposuction (71.8% vs 26.9%, P < 0.0001). Postoperatively, the HVF group had decreased incidence of infection (5.1% vs 23.0%, P = 0.051) and lymphocele/seroma (10.3% vs 34.6%, P = 0.0257). No statistical differences were observed for dehiscence, necrosis, or hematoma.ConclusionsHVF for medial thighplasty in MWL patients is a safe and effective procedure, with a lower complication profile than CFSF. Furthermore, the incorporation of barbed sutures and/or liposuction may help to achieve optimal results.Level of Evidence: 3

    • Authors: Hu X; Xue Z, Qi H, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundGlabellar frown lines are a common aesthetic concern, and minimally invasive techniques to treat frown lines have become popular.ObjectivesThe authors developed a technique to minimize frown lines by means of percutaneous myotomy with a small needle-knife and lipoinjection.MethodsSixty-nine patients underwent treatment of the glabellar frown lines in a prospective study. Percutaneous myotomy of the corrugator supercilii and procerus was conducted with a small needle-knife, and autologous fat was transferred to the glabellar region. Two independent investigators assessed improvement of the glabellar frown lines by applying the Merz Facial Wrinkle Scale preoperatively and 6 months postoperatively. Improvement by ≥1 point was regarded as a response to treatment. Patients also conducted a self-assessment based on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale.ResultsThe mean follow-up period was 8 months. The evaluators determined that the glabellar frown lines of 62 patients (89.9%) responded to treatment. For 4 patients (5.8%), the frown lines were partially improved, and the frown lines did not improve for 3 patients (4.3%). In a self-assessment, 64 patients (92.8%) perceived improvement in their frown lines 6 months postoperatively. No serious complications were recorded.ConclusionsTreatment of glabellar frown lines by percutaneous myotomy with a small needle-knife and lipoinjection is reliable and minimally invasive.Level of Evidence: 4

  • Commentary on: Incidence and Risk Factors for Major Hematomas in Aesthetic
           Surgery: Analysis of 129,007 Patients
    • Authors: Iverson R.
      Abstract: The authors presented 129,007 patients from the CosmetAssure database.1 There were 183,914 cosmetic surgery procedures performed on these patients. Major postoperative hematomas occurred in 1180 (0.91%) aesthetic surgical patients. These patients, within 30 days after their procedures, required emergency visits, hospital admissions, or reoperations. In 2009, we published that there was a need to identify risk factors impacting complication rates associated with aesthetic procedures in order to minimize patient risks and improve outcomes.2 This article determined the incidence of major postoperative hematomas in the CosmetAssure database. It assesses some risk factors to determine what predisposed 129,007 patients to hematoma formation. Patients were anatomically categorized in 3 groups: face, breast, and body. Patients were compared as to whether a hematoma was present or absent. The data set included 24 unique cosmetic surgical procedures.

  • A Meta-Analysis of the Effects of Abdominoplasty Modifications on the
           Incidence of Postoperative Seroma
    • Authors: Ardehali B; Fiorentino F.
      Abstract: BackgroundSeroma is the most common complication of abdominoplasty. Certain modifications to abdominoplasty may reduce the risk of seroma.ObjectivesThe authors evaluated the incidence of seroma for 3 abdominoplasty techniques: preservation of Scarpa’s fascia, placement of progressive tension (or quilting) sutures, and application of fibrin glue.MethodsIn this systematic review and meta-analysis, the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, Embase, and the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (World Health Organization) were searched to identify studies of patients who underwent abdominoplasty with seroma as a potential “outcome.” RevMan 5.3 was utilized for data management, statistical analyses, and graph preparation.ResultsFifteen studies (1824 total patients) met the criteria for inclusion in this review. The overall risk of bias was high, mainly owing to the nonrandomized nature of most studies. Abdominoplasty with preservation of Scarpa’s fascia or placement of progressive tension sutures was associated with a significantly reduced incidence of seroma compared with that of standard abdominoplasty (P < 0.0001 and P < 0.0002, respectively). Abdominoplasty with application of fibrin glue was similar to standard abdominoplasty in terms of seroma development.ConclusionsPlacement of progressive tension sutures or preservation of Scarpa’s fascia during abdominoplasty may reduce the likelihood of postoperative seroma. Application of fibrin glue has no impact on seroma formation.Level of Evidence: 2

      Abstract: BackgroundCurrently, there is no standardized approach for labia majora augmentation and controversies still exist regarding this subject.ObjectivesThis systematic review aimed to assess the evidence in the literature regarding labia majora augmentation.MethodsOn November 20, 2016, we conducted an online search of published articles in the Medline, Embase, and Cochrane databases. All articles describing labia majora augmentation were included in this review.ResultsNine studies were selected for inclusion in the systematic review. Only 2 studies were prospective trials. The most commonly used technique was fat grafting with a total of 4 articles and 183 patients. The mean total injected fat volume ranged from 18 mL to 120 mL per session. Two articles described hyaluronic acid injection techniques. The total injected volume of hyaluronic acid ranged from 2 to 6 mL per session. Three articles used surgical techniques for labia majora augmentation. All included articles did not report any major or life-threatening complications. All techniques demonstrated high satisfaction rates.ConclusionsLabia majora augmentation appears to be a safe, efficient technique with a high satisfaction rate and no reported major complications. However, further randomized controlled trials are warranted.Level of Evidence: 4

  • Incidence and Risk Factors for Major Hematomas in Aesthetic Surgery:
           Analysis of 129,007 Patients
    • Authors: Kaoutzanis C; Winocour J, Gupta V, et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundPostoperative hematomas are one of the most frequent complications following aesthetic surgery. Identifying risk factors for hematoma has been limited by underpowered studies from single institution experiences.ObjectivesTo examine the incidence and identify independent risk factors for postoperative hematomas following cosmetic surgery utilizing a prospective, multicenter database.MethodsA prospectively enrolled cohort of patients who underwent aesthetic surgery between 2008 and 2013 was identified from the CosmetAssure database. Primary outcome was occurrence of major hematomas requiring emergency room visit, hospital admission, or reoperation within 30 days of the index operation. Univariate and multivariate analysis was used to identify potential risk factors for hematomas including age, gender, body mass index (BMI), smoking, diabetes, type of surgical facility, procedure by body region, and combined procedures.ResultsOf 129,007 patients, 1180 (0.91%) had a major hematoma. Mean age (42.0 ± 13.0 years vs 40.9 ± 13.9 years, P < 0.01) and BMI (24.5 ± 5.0 kg/m2 vs 24.3 ± 4.6 kg/m2, P < 0.01) were higher in patients with hematomas. Males suffered more hematomas than females (1.4% vs 0.9%, P < 0.01). Hematoma rates were higher in patients undergoing combined procedures compared to single procedures (1.1% vs 0.8%, P < 0.01), and breast procedures compared to body/extremity or face procedures (1.0% vs 0.8% vs 0.7%, P < 0.01). On multivariate analysis, independent predictors of hematoma included age (Relative Risk [RR] 1.01), male gender (RR 1.98), the procedure being performed in a hospital setting rather than an office-based setting (RR 1.68), combined procedures (RR 1.35), and breast procedures rather than the body/extremity and face procedures (RR 1.81).ConclusionsMajor hematoma is the most common complication following aesthetic surgery. Male patients and those undergoing breast or combined procedures have a significantly higher risk of developing hematomas.Level of Evidence: 2
