  • 1000 Consecutive Cases of Laser-Assisted Liposuction Utilizing the
           1440 nm Wavelength Nd:YAG Laser: Assessing the Safety and Efficacy
    • Authors: Christopher T. Chia; Mark G. Albert; Sharon Del Vecchio; Spero J. Theodorou
      Pages: 9 - 12
      Abstract: Background Liposuction remains one of the most popular aesthetic surgery procedures performed today, and it has undergone continuous refinements over the past four decades. Advancements in anesthesia, improvements in instrumentation, better understanding of fluid dynamics and the addition of energy to liposuction have led to better outcomes with improved safety and efficacy. Objectives The purpose of this study is to review 1000 consecutive laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) cases utilizing the 1440 nm wavelength. Emphasis was placed on complication rates and the need for revision procedures. Methods The charts of 611 patients who underwent 1000 consecutive LAL operations were reviewed. All cases were performed either under general anesthesia or under local with sedation, and the cases were performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures. All patients went to presurgical testing and had preoperative laboratory and additional clearance by a specialist when indicated. Before and after medical photographs were obtained of all patients. All operations were done in an accredited office-based operating room. Demographic information, tumescent volume, aspirate volume, surgical time, complications and other data were reviewed. Results There were one minor complication and no major complications such as burns, hospitalizations or mortalities. One patient developed a small hematoma, which was likely caused by the patient self-aspirating edema fluid during the immediate post-op period. The hematoma resolved with non-surgical management. The average laser energy applied was 15,756 J with an average total aspirate volume of 1256 cc. Fourteen anatomic areas were treated with LAL, and 59 operations were combination cases. Conclusion Energy-assisted liposuction using the 1440 nm wavelength has been shown in this series to have a very low complication rate when performed alone or in combination with other aesthetic operations under local and general anesthesia.

  • Modifications of Z-Epicanthoplasty Combined with Double-Eyelid
           Blepharoplasty in Asians
    • Authors: Shun Wu; Ke Guo; Peng Xiao; Jiaming Sun
      Pages: 226 - 233
      Abstract: Background Epicanthoplasty combined with double-eyelid blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Asians. However, the postoperative medial canthal scar is a concerned issue. Here the authors adopted some modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty to minimize the canthal scar. Methods Modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty were mainly in three aspects. First, supratarsal creases were created before epicanthoplasty to prevent the impact of tension variation on epicanthal incisions, caused by elevating and tightening of the upper eyelid skin. Second, one triangle flap was determined according to the transposition of another one in Z-plasty, and hence, it can be guaranteed that the incisions were closed free of tension with more accuracy and less injury to surrounding tissues. Third, linear scar contracture was avoided by adopting discontinuous incisions, and the resulting skin bulge was eliminated by making an additional stitch to anchor the pretarsal skin on the tarsal plate. The follow-up interval was 1 month to 2 years, with a median of 6.5 months. Results From January 2012 to December 2015, 237 female and 4 male patients received the surgery. Except five (2.07%) patients, who were not satisfied with the color of incision scars in medial canthal area, none complained about scars 6 months after surgery. The appearance of the supratarsal crease was natural, and the medial canthal scar was inconspicuous in close observation at 2 years. Conclusion The modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty are safe and effective. It is potentially helpful to minimize postoperative medial canthal scars.

      Abstract: Background Dexamethasone and tranexamic acid are used to decrease post-rhinoplasty periorbital edema and ecchymosis. We compared the impact of each medication separately or in combination in this regard. Methods A prospective, randomized triple-blinded study was undertaken on 60 patients who underwent primary open rhinoplasty. They were divided into four groups: Group D (n = 15) received 8 mg dexamethasone, group T (n = 15) received 10 mg/kg tranexamic acid, group DT (n = 15) received both 8 mg dexamethasone and 10 mg/kg tranexamic acid, and group P (n = 15) received neither medication and served as the placebo control group. The medications were given intravenously (IV) 1 h before and three doses every 8 h postoperatively. Digital photographs were taken on the first, third and seventh postoperative days. One expert examiner blinded to the study evaluated the periorbital edema and ecchymosis on a scale of 0–4. Periorbital edema and ecchymosis were examined in all groups. Results In group D, group T and group DT, periorbital edema and ecchymosis ratings were significantly lower compared with the control group (p < 0.01). No statistically significant difference was seen in preventing or decreasing both periorbital edema and ecchymosis among group D, group T and group DT. Conclusion Tranexamic acid and dexamethasone, separately or in combination, had similar effects in reducing periorbital edema and ecchymosis in open rhinoplasty. Combined application did not show a significantly higher beneficial effect in this regard. Level of Evidence III This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

  • Education on the Business of Plastic Surgery During Training: A Survey of
           Plastic Surgery Residents
    • Authors: Steven A. Ovadia; Kriya Gishen; Urmen Desai; Alejandro M. Garcia; Seth R. Thaller
      Abstract: Background Entrepreneurial skills are important for physicians, especially plastic surgeons. Nevertheless, these skills are not typically emphasized during residency training. Objective Evaluate the extent of business training at plastic surgery residency programs as well as means of enhancing business training. Methods A 6-question online survey was sent to plastic surgery program directors for distribution to plastic surgery residents. Responses from residents at the PGY2 level and above were included for analysis. Tables were prepared to present survey results. Results Hundred and sixty-six residents including 147 PGY2 and above residents responded to our survey. Only 43.5% reported inclusion of business training in their plastic surgery residency. A majority of residents reported they do not expect on graduation to be prepared for the business aspects of plastic surgery. Additionally, a majority of residents feel establishment of a formal lecture series on the business of plastic surgery would be beneficial. Conclusions Results from our survey indicate limited training at plastic surgery programs in necessary business skills. Plastic surgery residency programs should consider incorporating or enhancing elements of business training in their curriculum.

  • Spontaneous Regression and Resolution of Breast Implant-Associated
           Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma: Implications for Research, Diagnosis and
           Clinical Management
    • Authors: Daniel Fleming; Jason Stone; Patrick Tansley
      Abstract: Background First described in 1997, breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) was recognised by the World Health Organisation in 2016 as a specific disease. It typically presents as a late seroma-containing atypical, monoclonal T cells which are CD30+ and anaplastic lymphoma kinase negative. Until recently, it was thought that the disease was very rare. However, it is being diagnosed increasingly frequently with 56 cases confirmed in Australia by September 2017 and the estimated incidence revised from 1 in 300,000 to between 1 in 1000 and 1 in 10,000 patients with bilateral implants. There is debate about the spectrum of BIA-ALCL. According to the current WHO classification, BIA-ALCL is a cancer in all cases. Treatment guidelines require that it is treated urgently with a minimum of bilateral removal of implants and capsulectomies. Whilst acknowledging the disease has been under diagnosed in the past, with some notable exceptions the BIA-ALCL literature has given scant attention to the epidemiological evidence. Now that it is known that the disease may occur in up to 1 in 1000 patients with a median of 7.5 years from implantation to diagnosis, understanding it in its epidemiological context is imperative. The epidemiology of cancer and lymphoma in women with breast implants strongly suggests that most patients do not have a cancer that will inevitably progress without treatment but instead a self-limiting lympho-proliferative disorder. Although the possibility of spontaneous regression has been raised and the observation made that treatment delay did not seem to increase the risk of spread, the main objection to the lympho-proliferative hypothesis has been the lack of documented cases of spontaneous regression or resolution. Because all cases currently are considered malignant and treated urgently, only case report evidence, interpreted in the proper epidemiological context, is likely to be available to challenge this thinking. Methods and Results New observations and interpretation of the epidemiology of BIA-ALCL are made. These are supported by the presentation of two cases, which to the best of our knowledge comprise the first documented evidence of spontaneous regression and spontaneous resolution of confirmed BIA-ALCL. Conclusions The epidemiology of the disease strongly suggests that the vast majority of cases are not a cancer that will inevitably progress without treatment. The findings presented in the manuscript provide supportive clinical evidence. Consequently, an alternative view of BIA-ALCL with implications for research, diagnosis and clinical management needs to be considered.

  • Randomized Controlled Study Comparing Disposable Negative-Pressure Wound
           Therapy with Standard Care in Bilateral Breast Reduction Mammoplasty
           Evaluating Surgical Site Complications and Scar Quality
    • Authors: V. Tanaydin; J. Beugels; A. Andriessen; J. H. Sawor; R. R. W. J. van der Hulst
      Abstract: Background Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for postsurgical incision treatment has demonstrated benefits. A prospective randomized study was developed including 32 patients who underwent bilateral breast reduction mammoplasty. Patients served as their own control and received NPWT to one breast and fixation strips to the other breast. Methods The primary outcome was the number of wound healing complications within 21 days when comparing NPWT treatment with fixation strips. The secondary outcome was aesthetic appearance and quality of scarring using questionnaires [visual analogue scale (VAS) and Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS)] scored at day 42-, 90-, 180- and 365-day follow-up using additional scar measurement modalities, such as viscoelasticity. Results For the 32 included patients, the number of wound complications was significantly lower (p < 0.004) for the NPWT treated sites compared to fixation strips. POSAS and VAS scores at 42 and 90 days revealed a significantly better quality of scarring in the NPWT treatment breasts than in fixation strips. At 180-day follow-up, there was a significant improvement in VAS scores, as well as a comparable improvement in POSAS scores. No consistent significant improvement in scar quality was demonstrated with the assays that were used. Conclusions Our study showed less complications and a significant improvement in quality of scarring in favor of the NPWT-treated sites. The results indicate NPWT to be an attractive option for these patients. Level of Evidence II This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

  • Botulinum Toxin Type A: Assessing The Effects on The Brain Stem
    • Authors: Cemile Merve Seymen; Serhan Tuncer; M. Suhan Ayhan; Cigdem Elmas
      Abstract: Background In this study, our aim is to investigate the possible effects of Botulinum toxin type A administrations in the early and late periods on the brain stem. Methods Eighteen white New Zealand rabbits were used in this study with the subjects being divided into three groups. Group I received 0.05 mL sterile saline to the left anterior auricular muscles. Group II and III were injected with Botulinum toxin type A (Botox, Allergan) to the left anterior auricular muscles. Group II was sacrificed 5 days after application and Group III was sacrificed 12 weeks after application; brain stem tissues were then taken. The samples were examined with Caspase 3, 8, and 9 immunohistochemical stainings. Results In the control group with Caspase-3 immune staining, moderate-to-strong immune reactivity was seen in a small number of neurons. In the Caspase-8 and 9 immune stainings, the immune reactive neurons were seen in greater numbers when compared with the Caspase-3 immune reactive neurons. In the early and late period, groups with Caspase-8 and 9 immune stainings, the immune reactive neurons were seen in greater numbers and in the wider area when compared with the Caspase-3 immune reactive neurons. No significant differences were recognized in the Caspase immune stainings between the early and late period groups. The results were statistically supported. Conclusion It was concluded that Botulinum toxin type A application did not trigger apoptosis in stem cell tissues.

  • LCL: (Locked Cheek Lift) Three-Dimensional Cheek Lift and Inferior
           Palpebral Rejuvenation
    • Authors: Marc Divaris; Ebaa Sabri; Gianfranco Cancemi; Richard Daury
      Abstract: Background Many recent advances in face lift techniques have been made to reverse the aging process of the mid-face. In this study, we present a new technique by which mid-face rejuvenation can be achieved in double-angle vectors and allows adaption to the underlying bony structure. The locked cheek lift (LCL) allows effective, simple and rapid lifting of the malar fat pad in two planes. Correction of the curvature of the face and reduction of the height of lid cheek junction distance can be achieved without an incision at the lower eyelid. Methods In total, 115 patients (77 females and 38 males) have been operated on using the LCL technique by a single surgeon; patient ages ranged between 37 and 71 years old (average = 51). Follow-up was performed by the same team for a year postoperatively. The facial expression and lid cheek distance have been evaluated during this period. Results After a year from the operation, the lid cheek distance correction was maintained in 95.7% of the cases, with stable position of the ascended malar fat pad. Postoperative edema and ecchymosis were limited. Conclusion LCL is an effective, simple and rapid surgical technique, which is capable of correcting the cheek gravitational migration, reducing the lid cheek distance (LCD), maintaining the ascended stable malar fat pad for a long time with a short recovery period and minimal risk of complications.

  • Clinical Application of Platelet-Rich Fibrin in Plastic and Reconstructive
           Surgery: A Systematic Review
    • Authors: Panxi Yu; Zhen Zhai; Xiaolei Jin; Xiaonan Yang; Zuoliang Qi
      Abstract: Background Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) has been applied in the clinical field for more than a decade, but largely in oral surgery and implant dentistry. Its utilization in plastic and reconstructive surgery is limited and lacking a comprehensive review. Hence, this article focuses on the various clinical applications of PRF pertaining to the plastic and reconstructive field through a systematic review. Methods In this review, articles describing the clinical application of PRF in plastic and reconstructive surgery were screened using predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. The articles were summarized and divided into groups based on the utilization of PRF. The effects and complications of PRF were analyzed and concluded. Results Among the 634 articles searched, 7 articles describing 151 cases are eligible. PRF was applied on 116 (76.8%) wounds to facilitate tissue healing, and the complete wound closure rate was 91.4% (106/116). Otherwise, PRF was applied in 10 (6.6%) cases of zygomaticomaxillary fracture to reconstruct orbital floor defects and in 25 (16.6%) cases of facial autologous fat grafts to increase the fat retention rate successfully. There is no report of PRF-related complications. Conclusions PRF could facilitate wound healing, including the healing of soft tissues and bony tissues, and facilitate fat survival rate. Further studies are needed to test the mechanism of PRF and expand its scope of application in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
