  • Prevalence of Body Dysmorphic Disorder in Plastic Surgery and Dermatology
           Patients: A Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis
    • Authors: Rafael Vilela Eiras Ribeiro
      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of body dysmorphic disorder in plastic surgery and dermatology patients, by performing a systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis. The most relevant studies published originally in any language were analyzed. The literature search was performed using the PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), and Scielo databases. The final sample comprised 33 publications that were submitted to meta-analysis. The study verified that 15.04% of plastic surgery patients had body dysmorphic disorder (range 2.21–56.67%); patient mean age was 34.54 ± 12.41 years, and most were women (74.38%). Among dermatology patients, 12.65% (range 4.52–35.16%) had body dysmorphic disorder; patient mean age was 27.79 ± 9.03 years, and most were women (76.09%). Both plastic surgeons and dermatologists must adequately assess their patients to identify those with a higher likelihood of body dysmorphic disorder and should arrange multidisciplinary care for such individuals.

  • Preventing the Complications Associated with the Use of Dermal Fillers in
           Facial Aesthetic Procedures: An Expert Group Consensus Report

      Abstract: Background The use of dermal fillers in minimally invasive facial aesthetic procedures has become increasingly popular of late, yet as the indications and the number of procedures performed increase, the number of complications is also likely to increase. Paying special attention to specific patient characteristics and to the technique used can do much to avoid these complications. Indeed, a well-trained physician can also minimize the impact of such problems when they do occur. Methods A multidisciplinary group of experts in aesthetic treatments reviewed the main factors associated with the complications that arise when using dermal fillers. A search of English, French and Spanish language articles in PubMed was performed using the terms “complications” OR “soft filler complications” OR “injectable complications” AND “dermal fillers”. An initial document was drafted that reflected the complications identified and recommendations as to how they should be handled. This document was then reviewed and modified by the expert panel, until a final text was agreed upon and validated. Results The panel addressed consensus recommendations about the preparation, the procedure and the post-procedural care. The panel considered it crucial to obtain an accurate medical history to prevent potential complications. An additional clinical assessment, including standardized photography, is also crucial to evaluate the outcomes and prevent potential complications. Furthermore, the state of the operating theatre, the patient’s health status and the preparation of the skin are critical to prevent superficial soft tissue infections. Finally, selecting the appropriate technique, based on the physician’s experience, as well as the characteristics of the patient and filler, helps to ensure successful outcomes and limits the complications. Conclusions This consensus document provides key elements to help clinicians who are starting to use dermal fillers to employ standard procedures and to understand how best to prevent potential complications of the treatment.

  • The Precise Repositioning Instrument for Genioplasty and a
           Three-Dimensional Printing Technique for Treatment of Complex Facial
    • Authors: Lin Wang; Dan Tian; Xiumei Sun; Yanju Xiao; Li Chen; Guomin Wu
      Abstract: Background Facial asymmetry is very common in maxillofacial deformities. It is difficult to achieve accurate reconstruction. With the help of 3D printing models and surgical templates, the osteotomy line and the amount of bone grinding can be accurate. Also, by means of the precise repositioning instrument, the repositioning of genioplasty can be accurate and quick. In this study, we present a three-dimensional printing technique and the precise repositioning instrument to guide the osteotomy and repositioning, and illustrate their feasibility and validity. Methods Eight patients with complex facial asymmetries were studied. A precise 3D printing model was obtained. We made the preoperative design and surgical templates according to it. The surgical templates and precise repositioning instrument were used to obtain an accurate osteotomy and repositioning during the operation. Postoperative measurements were made based on computed tomographic data, including chin point deviation as well as the symmetry of the mandible evaluated by 3D curve functions. Results All patients obtained satisfactory esthetic results, and no recurrences occurred during follow-up. The results showed that we achieved clinically acceptable precision for the mandible and chin. The mean and SD of ICC between R-Post and L-Post were 0.973 ± 0.007. The mean and SD of chin point deviation 6 months after the operation were 0.63 ± 0.19 mm. Conclusion The results of this study suggest that the three-dimensional printing technique and the precise repositioning instrument could aid in making better operation designs and more accurate manipulation in orthognathic surgery for complex facial asymmetry.

  • Inverted Nipple Correction with Selective Dissection of Lactiferous Ducts
           Using an Operative Microscope and a Traction Technique
    • Authors: Yoshihiro Sowa; Sizu Itsukage; Daiki Morita; Toshiaki Numajiri
      Abstract: Background An inverted nipple is a common congenital condition in young women that may cause breastfeeding difficulty, psychological distress, repeated inflammation, and loss of sensation. Various surgical techniques have been reported for correction of inverted nipples, and all have advantages and disadvantages. Here, we report a new technique for correction of an inverted nipple using an operative microscope and traction that results in low recurrence and preserves lactation function and sensation. Methods Between January 2010 and January 2013, we treated eight inverted nipples in seven patients with selective lactiferous duct dissection using an operative microscope. An opposite Z-plasty was added at the junction of the nipple and areola. Postoperatively, traction was applied through an apparatus made from a rubber gasket attached to a sterile syringe. Patients were followed up for 15–48 months. Results Adequate projection was achieved in all patients, and there was no wound dehiscence or complications such as infection. Three patients had successful pregnancies and subsequent breastfeeding that was not adversely affected by the treatment. There was no loss of sensation in any patient during the postoperative period. Conclusion Our technique for treating an inverted nipple is effective and preserves lactation function and nipple sensation. The method maintains traction for a longer period, which we believe increases the success rate of the surgery for correction of severely inverted nipples.

  • Estimation of Human Body Volume (BV) from Anthropometric Measurements
           Based on Three-Dimensional (3D) Scan Technique
    • Authors: Xingguo Liu; Jianwei Niu; Linghua Ran; Taijie Liu
      Abstract: Background This study aimed to develop estimation formulae for the total human body volume (BV) of adult males using anthropometric measurements based on a three-dimensional (3D) scanning technique. Noninvasive and reliable methods to predict the total BV from anthropometric measurements based on a 3D scan technique were addressed in detail. Methods A regression analysis of BV based on four key measurements was conducted for approximately 160 adult male subjects. Eight total models of human BV show that the predicted results fitted by the regression models were highly correlated with the actual BV (p < 0.001). Results Two metrics, the mean value of the absolute difference between the actual and predicted BV (V error) and the mean value of the ratio between V error and actual BV (RV error), were calculated. The linear model based on human weight was recommended as the most optimal due to its simplicity and high efficiency. Conclusions The proposed estimation formulae are valuable for estimating total body volume in circumstances in which traditional underwater weighing or air displacement plethysmography is not applicable or accessible.

  • Effectiveness of Hip External Rotator Strengthening Exercise in Korean
           Postural Bowleg Women
    • Authors: Seong Hoon Park; Jun Won Lee; Joo Hyun Kim; Kyoung Seok Tak; Byeong Ho Lee; In Suck Suh
      Abstract: Postural bowleg is a subclinical entity with both aesthetic and functional outcomes and appears to be common in East Asian countries. Internal rotation of the hip joint is associated with varus alignment at the knee joint of the bowleg. Strengthening exercise for the hip external rotator muscles seems to be effective in improving varus alignment of bowleg, but no standardized exercise program exists. A standardized active resistance strengthening exercise for hip external rotator muscles could improve varus alignment of the lower limb in bowlegged Korean women. In this article, a case series study was conducted to observe changes following a standardized 3-month program using equipment designed for strengthening of the hip external rotator muscles. Photogrammetric and radiographic data were used to compare the gap between knees and tibiofemoral (TF) angles before and after the exercise program. As a result, on average, the knee gap decreased by 1.6 cm. The TF angle decreased by 1.5°. Regression analysis revealed a statistically significant association between changes in knee gap and TF angle. The standardized 3-month active resistance strengthening exercise program of hip external rotator muscles was effective in improving postural deviation and cosmetic outcomes in bowlegged Korean women.

  • Cervico-Mental Angle Suspensory Ligament: The Keystone to Understand the
           Cervico-Mental Angle and the Ageing Process of the Neck
    • Abstract: The authors performed cadaveric dissections to investigate the existence of an anatomical structure creating and maintaining the cervical mental angle, aiming to understand the anatomical bases of the cervico-mental angle and its modifications over time. Six fresh cadaver dissections were performed; four were done in the Caen University anatomy laboratory one in Paris XV University and one in the Coventry University hospital, England. At the end of this investigation, the authors were able to demonstrate the existence of an anatomical structure in the neck, the cervico-mental angle suspensory ligament. This ligament that fixates the platysma and skin to deeper structures originated from the second branchial arch and seems to play a key role in the formation of the cervico-mental angle and in the anatomical alterations in the ageing process.

  • Vascular Age as a Predictor of Side Effects After Facial Lipofilling
    • Abstract: Background Vascular age (VA) represents chronological age adjusted for an individual’s atherosclerotic burden. Keeping in mind the fact that facial vascularization could influence the success of esthetic interventions, we aimed to investigate the predictive value of VA in development of side effects following facial lipofilling. Methods In the period from October 1, 2014, to October 1, 2015, 106 consecutive subjects who underwent a facial lipofilling were included in the study. The VA was calculated using two approaches: Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation (SCORE) project equations and means of vascular parameters assessed by color duplex sonographic examinations. The data regarding facial lipofilling-related complications (pain, edema and/or hematoma) have been collected during the regular checkups over 2 weeks after intervention. Results The average chronological age of the participants was 50.9 ± 9.4 years. Estimation of VA using vascular sonographic parameters revealed the value of 45.4 ± 29.1 years, whereas the assessment of VA using SCORE equations showed that the mean age was 53.7 ± 12.7 (p = 0.006). The total frequency of these complications was as follows: 6.6% for hematoma, 15.1% for edema (13.2% mild edema and 1.9% severe edema) and 20.8% for local facial pain (17.0% mild pain and 3.8% severe pain). The multivariate logistic regression models showed that VA had statistically significant (p < 0.01) independent prognostic value for facial lipofilling-related appearance of hematoma and pain. Conclusions The results of our study revealed that advanced VA has an independent predictive role in the appearance of complications following facial plastic surgery.

  • A Modified Levator Resection Technique Involving Retention of the Levator
           Palpebrae Superioris Muscle Suspension System for Treatment of Congenital
    • Abstract: Background The classical levator resection (LR) technique for correcting ptosis involves separating the levator palpebrae superioris muscle (LPS) completely, which will inevitably collapse the muscle. The modified surgical method involving retention of the LPS suspensory system can allow for more contractility of the levator muscle and thus maximize protection of the eyelid structure. Methods Ninety patients (132 eyelids) with different degrees of ptosis were enrolled. The same levator resection surgery whereby the suspensory system of the LPS is retained was performed in each patient. Postoperative outcome measures included the following: position of the upper eyelid margin, eyelid contour and plumpness, degree of scleral exposure, and exposure keratitis. Postoperative follow-up time points were 1 week, 1 month, and 6 months. Results The positions of the eyelid upper margins were normal in all cases, and lagophthalmos only existed in severe cases in the early stage after surgery. Six months after surgery, 32% of the eyes had residual ptosis to varying degrees among severe cases, and the mild and moderate cases exhibited good surgical outcomes. The eyelids had appropriate closing functionality, and exposure keratitis was not observed in any case. Eyelid contour and plumpness was satisfactory in all patients. Conclusion Retaining the suspensory system of the LPS for LR with a modified surgery can protect the normal function and morphology of the eyelids. The surgery had a high success rate, especially for cases of mild and moderate ptosis. Level of Evidence IV This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

  • The Bony Cartilaginous Unit
    • Authors: Amir A. Sazgar; Ali Razfar; Nargess Mikaniki
      Abstract: Abstract To achieve an acceptable result in septorhinoplasty, sufficient septal cartilage is needed. There are many cases in which septal cartilage is insufficient, especially in revision surgery or in some races such as Asian. To obtain an ideal outcome, a bony cartilaginous unit (septal cartilage/ethmoid bone composite graft) is proposed as a versatile graft for different purpose such as caudal extension graft.

  • Windmill Flap Nipple Reduction: A New Method of Nipple Plasty
    • Authors: Yijia Yu; Liyuan Wei; Yichen Shen; Wei Xiao; Jiaxin Huang; Jinghong Xu
      Abstract: Background Nipple hypertrophy is a common aesthetic issue for Asian women. Thus, methods to correct this problem are needed. Several nipple reduction procedures have been reported, but all have shortcomings. In this article, we propose a new method to reduce both the height and diameter of the nipple without affecting its function. Methods Sixteen female patients, between the ages of 24–41 years, underwent a new nipple reduction method in our department between May 17, 2010, and May 5, 2014. Three crescent-shaped lines were drawn from the top of the side wall of the nipple, extending to the areola. This design reduces both the diameter and height of the nipple with minimal tissue manipulation. Results Before surgery, the mean diameter and height of the nipple were 15.9 ± 2.7 and 18.3 ± 3.1 mm, respectively, with the patient in the supine position. Immediately after surgery, the mean diameter and height of the nipple were 9.1 ± 1.7 and 7.9 ± 2.1 mm, respectively. No major complications, such as nipple necrosis, infection, delayed wound healing, or loss of sensation, were noted. Conclusions This new surgical technique allows the creation of a new nipple of the desired height and diameter with excellent aesthetic results and without significant complications.

  • Septum-Enhanced Mammaplasty in Inferocentral Pedicled Breast Reduction for
           Macromastia and Gigantomastia Patients
    • Authors: Aurelio Portincasa; Francesco Ciancio; Luigi Cagiano; Alessandro Innocenti; Domenico Parisi
      Abstract: Background Inferior pedicle and free nipple grafting are commonly used as breast reduction techniques for patients with breast hypertrophy and gigantomastia. Limitations of these techniques are, respectively, possible vascular compromise and total/partial necrosis of the nipple–areola complex (NAC). The authors describe the innovative inferocentral pedicled reduction mammaplasty (ICPBR) enhanced by preservation of Würinger’s septum for severe hypertrophic breasts. Materials and Methods Among 287 breast reductions performed between January 2001 and 2015, 83 (28.9%) macromastia and gigantomastia patients met the inclusion criteria (breast volume resection ≥400 g–sternal notch-to-nipple distance ≥33 cm) and were included in the study. Patients were stratified according to pedicle type: Group A (51 patients) underwent ICPBR with Würinger’s septum preservation; group B (32 patients) underwent IPBR. Groups were compared for NAC vascular complications, surgical revisions, wound-healing period and patient satisfaction at a minimum 6-month follow-up assessed by a five-category questionnaire (breast size, shape, symmetry, texture and scars appearance), with five Likert subscales (1 = poor to 5 = excellent). Descriptive statistics were reported, and comparisons of performance endpoints between groups were performed using Chi-squared, Fisher’s exact and Mann–Whitney U tests, with p value <0.05 considered significant. Results Group A and group B had, respectively, a mean age of 48.3 ± 12.4 and 50.1 ± 11.7 years, mean BMI of 23.8 and 24.6, mean weight resected of 560 ± 232 g and 590 ± 195 g, mean sternal notch-to-nipple distance of 35.1 and 34.3 cm, average nipple elevation of 9.7 and 9.5 cm. Among group A and group B, NAC complication rates were, respectively, 6.2 and 24.2% (p = 0.03), surgical revision rates were 33.3 and 60% (p = 1.00), healing time was 15.90 ± 3.2 and 19.03 ± 5.9 days (p = 0.002), and mean patient satisfaction scores were 19.9 ± 2.6 and 18.7 ± 3.4 (p = 0.07). Conclusions The ICPBR technique enhanced by Würinger’s septum preservation was found to be a reproducible and effective procedure for hypertrophic breasted and gigantomastia patients, improving the reliability of the vascular supply to the inferior–central pedicle. The authors do believe this procedure should be regarded as an innovative and safe option giving optimal aesthetic outcomes in this demanding group of patients.

  • Periareolar Access for Pectus Excavatum Correction with Silicone Implants:
           A New Method to Minimize Postoperative Scars—Review of the Literature,
           Considerations and Statistical Analysis of Clinical Outcomes
    • Authors: Alessandro Innocenti; Francesco Ciancio; Dario Melita; Mori Francesco; Aurelio Portincasa; Domenico Parisi; Emanuela Dreassi; Marco Innocenti
      Abstract: Background Pectus excavatum (PE) is one of the most frequent thoracic malformations. Generally, the malformation is not associated with functional disorders and often constitutes an aesthetic alteration with significant psychological distress. Objectives To reduce the visibility of the residual scarring produced by corrective surgery and to improve the aesthetic outcome, the authors propose a new prosthetic implant technique through a periareolar access. Methods From January 2005 to January 2015, 11 patients affected with PE underwent the surgical procedure with a sternal prosthesis implanted through a periareolar access with the help of a fiberscope. The preoperative evaluation of the perception of the malformation and postoperation results were made using different questionnaires. The data collected in our series were compared with that reported in 4 different papers where other forms of access were used: sternal, inframammary and transumbilical. Results No major complications or dislocation of the implants were reported. Among the complications, 6 postoperative seromas were reported. The patients’ perception of improvement through the use of 2 questionnaires and an evaluation scale showed substantial improvement in all the aesthetic outcomes. Conclusions The periareolar technique provides excellent cosmetic results compared to the sternal one. This access causes fewer complications and necessitates a shorter average hospital stay than the sternum access. To conclude, according to what is shown in the literature, periareolar access seems to be a quicker procedure, requiring a shorter stay in hospital, and results in scars that can more easily be hidden and are more accepted by patients.
