      Authors: A. Cuzalina, P. Mostofi, W. Hah
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Background:The demand for gluteal fat grafting (colloquially known as Brazilian butt lift [BBL]) has seen a dramatic increase in the past decade. Brazilian butt lift has been the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure in the United States for several years. During this time, the incidence of pulmonary fat embolisms (PFEs) associated with this procedure has raised safety concerns. Several professional organizations have responded to these concerns with investigational reports to identify the causes and provide recommendations to decrease the mortality associated with this popular cosmetic procedure. Awareness and implementation of these safety recommendations have been a cornerstone to decreasing the mortality rate associated with gluteal fat grafting.Objectives:To provide a comparison of current technical approaches and a mortality update on gluteal fat grafting among surgical members from the American Board of Cosmetic Surgeons (ABCS) within the last 6 years. Also, to determine if specific technical changes in the manner this procedure is performed are improving safety.Methods:An online (emailed) survey regarding perioperative gluteal fat grafting techniques and postoperative outcomes performed by ABCS surgeons within the previous 3 years was collected in 2 different 3-year time frames. Initial data were collected in 2019 for the preceding 3 years 2016-2019. The survey was again repeated in 2022 to collect similar data as before from ABCS member years 2019-2021. The data, which included the total # of BBLs performed, incidence of major infection or fat emboli, cannula size, and injection methods details was compared for each 3-year period. Both sequential studies provided a comparison of the techniques employed as well as morbidity and mortality outcomes.Results:Sixty-four ABCS surgeons who reported performing BBLs responded to the survey in 2019 and reported performing a total of 22 800 (BBLs) gluteal fat grafting cases in a previous 3-year window from 2016 to 2018. More surgeons used a closed system peristaltic pump in the second part of the study as compared to the first (51% vs 22%) (P < .01). Two cases required in-hospital treatment of infection in the first survey while zero cases were reported for the second survey period (P = .07). Twenty-five of 64 (39%) reported injecting fat at least into superficial gluteal muscle during this earlier time frame. In this earliest study, there were 3 total cases of PFE reported (2 fatal PFEs and 1 nonfatal PFEs). In 2022, 85 ABCS surgeons who reported performing BBLs responded to the survey. Around 12 172 gluteal fat grafting cases were reported in the second 3-year study from 2019 to 2021 compared to 22 800 in the first study (P < .01). There was a total of 34 972 BBLs during the entire 6-year study. Most surgeons (82 of the 85) in the second-phase 3-year study reported injecting fat “exclusively” above the muscle (P < .01). There were no fatal and non-fatal PFEs reported in the follow-up 3-year study in 2022 of ABCS member data from 2019 to 2021 (P = .03).Conclusions:The mortality report associated with gluteal fat grafting from this survey among surgical members of the ABCS suggests using the current safety recommendations proposed, including injection of fat in the subcutaneous layer only, have led to a decreased risk of PFEs associated with gluteal fat grafting. The mortality rate was zero (0 out of 12 800) when 96% were injecting above muscle only compared to a mortality rate of 1:11 400 (2 of 22 800 cases) when 39% of 22 800 BBLs performed had fat injected into muscle. While there were more BBLs performed during the earlier 3-year study (P = .07). The mortality rate significantly decreased in the years when only a small minority of cases had fat injected into the muscle. This study adds to other existing literature from professional organizations’ reports on the safety of gluteal fat grafting using the proper safety measure and recommendations.

  • Modified Posterior Triple Scoring as a Refinement Technique in Creating
           Aesthetic Antihelical Fold in Otoplasty

      Authors: Kenneth Brito, Michael Zacharia
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:To develop a precise and reliable technique in addressing underdevelopment of antihelical fold in patients with prominent ears.Background:Prominent ears remain to be a common presentation in aesthetic surgery. Multiple otoplasty techniques addressing the antihelical fold have been developed, but no standard technique is globally adopted. Creating a uniformly even, defined and smooth-edged antihelical fold without retropulsion of helix can be at times challenging and difficult to achieve. This study describes a modified way of refining a desirable antihelical fold by posterior triple scoring technique.Methods:A posterior approach was developed to access the posterior surface of antihelix and apply strategic triple linear scoring in conjunction with conchal repositioning. Ten patients underwent this procedure and followed up in 1-month and 1-year periods.Results:All patients were satisfied with the procedure. None of the patients developed complication or require secondary otoplasty.Conclusion:This novel technique provides a simple yet reliable and precise technique in conjunction with conchal setback or as a standalone procedure in selected patients to achieve the aesthetic curves of the external ear. We suggest this technique as an option to address the underdevelopment of antihelical fold in patients with prominent ears.

      Authors: Shohreh Ghasemi, Mahmood Dashti
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Study Design:This review explores the potential applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning in preservation rhinoplasty. Preservation rhinoplasty is a surgical technique that aims to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the nose while preserving its natural structures and functions. Artificial intelligence and deep learning offer new avenues for improving surgical planning, intraoperative guidance, and postoperative analysis in this specialized field.Objective:The objective of this review is to examine how AI and deep learning can enhance preservation rhinoplasty by providing tools for precise surgical planning, real-time guidance during surgery, and comprehensive postoperative analysis.Methods:The review synthesizes information from relevant studies and articles in the field of rhinoplasty, AI, and deep learning. It discusses the potential benefits and challenges associated with the integration of AI into preservation rhinoplasty, drawing from the literature and expert insights.Results:The review highlights several key findings:Surgical Planning:Artificial intelligence can analyze preoperative imaging data to assist surgeons in planning the procedure accurately. It can predict postoperative outcomes and enhance discussions with patients.Intraoperative Guidance:Artificial intelligence can provide real-time guidance to surgeons, ensuring the preservation of natural nasal structures during surgery.Postoperative Analysis:Artificial intelligence can automate the analysis of postoperative images and patient-reported outcomes, aiding in assessing surgical success and patient satisfaction.Challenges and Ethical Considerations:The integration of AI in preservation rhinoplasty should prioritize patient safety, ethical considerations, and validation to ensure its effectiveness.Conclusions:Artificial intelligence has the potential to greatly impact the field of preservation rhinoplasty. Using advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques, AI can assist surgeons in analyzing patient data, predicting outcomes, and optimizing surgical techniques. This technology can help improve surgical precision, reduce complications, and enhance patient satisfaction. However, it is important to note that AI should be seen as a tool to support and enhance the surgeon’s expertise rather than replacing human judgment and experience. As AI continues to evolve, it is crucial for surgeons to stay updated with the latest advancements and incorporate them judiciously into their practice to achieve the best possible outcomes for their patients.

      Authors: Nabil Fakih-Gomez, David Dominguez-Medina, Cristina Muñoz-Gonzalez, Ibrahim Fakih-Gomez
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      The lip lift surgery has emerged as one of the most highly sought-after procedures within the realm of cosmetic clinical practices. While indirect techniques have undergone numerous modifications and garnered extensive attention over time, there has been a notable dearth of published information concerning direct techniques. In this article, we present 3 refined modifications to the direct lip lift technique. These enhancements encompass an upgraded marking design based on the clinical anatomy of the oral commissure, a full-thickness skin excision while preserving the integrity of the orbicularis oris muscle, and an improved intradermal skin suturing technique. In our experience, we found that by methodically implementing these techniques, we have successfully minimized the visibility of scars along the vermilion border. Concurrently, we have achieved effective lip eversion while preserving its natural fullness. These modifications to the technique have emerged as a result of an evolutionary process aimed at rectifying the limitations of previous methods. Consequently, these adaptations have empowered us to more seamlessly integrate the direct lip lift technique into our clinical practice.

  • Indirect Lip Lift With Modified Suspension Technique to Pyriform Ligament

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nabil Fakih-Gomez, Cristina Muñoz-Gonzalez, David Dominguez-Medina, Ibrahim Fakih-Gomez
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      The lip lift procedure has witnessed a surge in popularity in recent years due to its remarkable ability to bring about a substantial transformation in facial appearance through a minor surgical intervention. The primary objective of the procedure is to diminish the height of the philtrum, consequently enhancing the visibility of the teeth while leaving behind a minimal visible scar along the upper lip vermilion border. In this article, a series of refined modifications to the conventional subnasal technique are introduced. The approach entails the removal of a skin strip while preserving a subcutaneous cuff. This method incorporates central and laterally vectored deep-plane sub-superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) advancement flaps, complemented by suspensions to the pyriform ligament. Furthermore, a sliding closure technique is introduced through the cuffs, and an enhanced skin suturing method is implemented. These substantial enhancements to the procedure result in a lasting elevation of the lip and a reduction in the visibility of unfavorable scarring. These modifications have emerged through an evolutionary process, driven by the pursuit to improve scar outcomes. The surgical techniques applied in this method effectively address the primary limitations of previous approaches, consistently yielding aesthetically pleasing results over the long term.

  • Lower Blepharoplasty With Fat Transposition and Three-Vector Suspension
           Technique

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nabil Fakih-Gomez
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      The aging appearance of the lower eyelids is multifactorial, involving changes in the skin, orbital fat, orbicularis muscle, soft tissue of the midface, tear trough, and tear valley. Traditional techniques of lower blepharoplasty are based on transcutaneous or transconjunctival approaches with skin removal, followed by adjunctive procedures, such as canthal suspension, fat resection, or repositioning. However, these approaches can hardly achieve excellent transitions simply because they do not effectively address every age-related issue affecting the lower eyelid. Conversely, the approach presented herein, focuses on blending the lid-cheek junction by means of skin resection, fat transposition, and three periosteal suspension vectors, including canthal, skin-muscle flap, and sub-orbicularis oculi fat (SOOF) suspensions. It provides adequate volume restoration in the tear trough and tear valley, along with enhanced support and stability to the eyelid with canthopexy, double muscle flap, and SOOF suspension. The aim of this article is to provide a detailed step by step description of this technique along with the results of 269 patients who underwent this procedure from 2019 to 2023. This technique offers a safe and effective solution for lower eyelid aging, yielding long-lasting aesthetic results with excellent transitions.

  • In Vitro Analysis of Dissolution of 18 HA-based Dermal Fillers with
           Tailored Hyaluronidase Dosing to Achieve Urgent Reversal of Vascular
           Complications

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sahitya Reddy, Marisa Mihori, Soheila Rostami
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction:Hyaluronidase (HYAL), a hyaluronic acid-degrading enzyme, is commonly used “off-label” as part of the gold standard management of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler complications. It is paramount that injectors be cognizant to diagnose and treat filler complications, particularly vascular emboli, where there may be a narrow window for timely treatment. There is a paucity of studies, however, that provide HYAL dosage guidelines in the setting of acute vascular obstruction that are specific to each of the 18 reversible HA-based dermal fillers commercially available on the current US market. Differences in resistance to HYAL degradation is based on variation in cross-linking technique, concentration of HA, and cohesive properties that each filler may possess. This in vitro study investigates optimal dosage parameters of HYAL to achieve gross dissolution of every reversible HA-based filler commercially available to better improve outcomes after filler-induced vascular complications.Methods:Standardized in vitro analysis using 0.5-mL aliquots of all 18 commercially available HA-based fillers included all Restylane products (Lyft, Restylane-L, Silk, Refyne, Defyne, Kysse, Contour), Juvederm products (Volbella, Vollure, Voluma, Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC), Revanesse products (Versa+, Lips+), Teoxane products (RHA 2, RHA 3, RHA 4), and Belotero. Hylenex, recombinant human HYAL, was used in 150 IU increments for total quantities of either 300, 450, 600, or 750 IU to achieve timed assessment of the gross dissolution of filler using photographic and videographic documentation. Inert dye was used to improve filler visibility against the HYAL. Mechanical integration of HYAL into the filler mimicked massage technique commonly implemented to incorporate HYAL into the perivascular soft tissue to help relieve a filler-induced vascular obstruction.Results:The cross-linking technology utilized by each HA-filler manufacturer played a significant role in the readiness of filler dissolution with HYAL. Fastest dissolution times ranged from 11 seconds to approximately 32 minutes, with a strong correlation with Restylane products dissolving the fastest, followed by Juvederm & Revanesse products. The slowest to achieve gross dissolution were Belotero and the RHA series.Discussion:All 18 HA-based fillers achieved complete gross dissolution within the first 32 minutes, however, due to differences in cross-linking technology and molecular properties, there was large variation in in vitro HYAL-induced degradation that can be extrapolated clinically to help reverse urgent vascular obstruction. This may also help beginner injectors strategically choose the HA-based dermal fillers that have the fastest degradation response to HYAL. Further in vivo studies are necessary to integrate these into clinical practice.

  • “The Utility of Preoperative Acetaminophen in Reducing Postoperative
           Pain and Narcotic Use in Patients Undergoing Cosmetic Breast
           Augmentations, During a National Opiate Crisis”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Garrett Jones, Jacob Haiavy, Kaelen Kay
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Preoperative use of acetaminophen has become widely adopted across the surgical subspecialties in attempt to maximize analgesia and minimize postoperative narcotic requirements. Whether or not acetaminophen use has an influence on these outcomes in cosmetic breast augmentation needs to be studied. Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare the differences in reported pain and narcotic use between patients undergoing breast augmentations who received preoperative oral acetaminophen and those who did not. Methods: This was a prospective, single-center study including 59 patients undergoing primary breast augmentation which were divided into 2 groups: control group (did not receive acetaminophen) and a study group (received 1000 g PO acetaminophen), all medications were administered prior to surgery. A self-reported survey was received from all patients which included pain scores as well as number of narcotics taken. Results: Data analysis indicated that the only statistically significant difference in pain was on postoperative day 2 (POD2), with patients who did not receive PO tylenol reporting more pain. There was no significant difference in the number of narcotics required between either group. Conclusions: It appears that preoperative PO acetaminophen did not significantly influence the amount of postoperative narcotic use. The only difference in reported pain was on POD2 and was higher in those who did not receive preoperative acetaminophen. It seems that PO acetaminophen is an inexpensive way of improving postoperative pain in patients undergoing cosmetic breast augmentation; however, it does not reduce narcotic use.

      Authors: Tong Le, Michael John Higgs
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction:Combining breast augmentation with mastopexy has historically been considered challenging, with concerns about complications and suboptimal aesthetic outcomes. However, recent data suggest that the combined procedure can be performed safely and effectively.Materials and Method:This article presents a technique for augmentation mastopexy that aims to minimize complications and is safe to perform. The technique focuses on preserving a robust blood supply, minimizing lower breast contour bottoming out, maintaining upper pole fullness, reducing the risk of recurrent ptosis, minimizing scar burden, and avoiding periareolar scar widening. Precise preoperative and intraoperative markings are crucial for achieving long-lasting results. The use of tailor tacking and marking the vertical excess with the patient in an upright position provides a reliable method for determining the amount of soft tissue resection required.Results:The results are shown in the postoperative photographs at 10 days, 1 month, and 3 months, respectively. These are compared with the preoperative photographs of the patient’s features.Discussion:The technique incorporates the use of an implant placed in the dual-plane subpectoral pocket to address upper pole flatness and provide structural support in the lower pole. The article emphasizes the importance of preserving Cooper’s ligaments during skin resection to maintain the supportive role of the skin. Vertical wedge resection of the lower pole is employed to reconstruct the breast cone and create a strong vertical fibrous band, which contributes to the long-term shape and support of the breast. The article also discusses techniques to mitigate nipple-areolar complex widening and emphasizes the importance of patient selection based on specific criteria.Conclusion:Overall, the authors present a safe and simple technique for augmentation mastopexy that aims to achieve long-lasting results with minimal complications. The authors advocate for careful patient selection and adherence to their methodology, which incorporates principles of preserving blood supply, maintaining breast contours, and minimizing scar burden.

      Authors: Hatem Elfieshawy, Graham Smyth, Monika Jasinska
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Inferior breast implant displacement, also known as caudal migration, or bottoming-out, is a known complication of breast augmentation. This leads to a loss of upper pole fullness, a more superiorly located nipple-areolar complex, and an unnatural appearance. Avoiding these complaints has been a longstanding challenge in the field of aesthetics and this technical note suggests a novel solution. This technical note describes the process of preoperative assessment, careful markings, and the use of an autologous lipo-dermal advancement flap that has been designed, mobilized, and rotated to be internally fixated to costal margins and the relevant deep fascial structures at the proposed inframammary fold level. This technique creates a robust partitioning hammock-like structure that stabilizes the breast implant and prevents future caudal displacement. The described technique may be implemented as an independent solution, or as an adjunct to other modalities like biological meshes in revision breast surgery.

      Authors: Arian Mowlavi, Hamid Mirzania, Zachary Sin, Chelsea Sahami
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction: High-definition liposuction (HDL) has been coined to identify liposuction results that are superior to traditional liposuction. The HDL Body scale has been previously described to help objectify changes required to achieve HDL results (that range from 2 to 10 score) with the ultimate goal of achieving a near perfect 9 or 10 body score. Materials/Methods: We present the High-Definition (HD) Abdominal Body Scale that is intended to assist with attaining HD abdominal contouring outcomes. High-definition abdominal contouring outcomes require comprehensive correction of abdominal contour concerns as well as creation of abdominal muscle highlights and natural shadows. HD Abdominal Body Scale assigns scores ranging from 2 to 10 with the ultimate goal of achieving a near perfect 9 or 10 body score indicative of HD outcomes. Results: The HD Abdominal Body Scale and subsequent surgical algorithm for HD abdominal contouring and case studies are presented. Discussion: Considerations for achieving HD abdominal contouring outcomes include assessing degree of fat excess, integrity of abdominal muscles, amount of skin redundancy, as well as quality and extent of skin texture changes. Evaluation of these factors provides the premise for determining HD abdominal contouring scores. HD abdominal contouring scores are used to establish proper patient selection, appropriate surgical design, and objective assessment of outcomes. Conclusion: This article presents an abdominal HDL Body Scale that helps expand patient populations who are candidates for HD body contouring. Surgeons’ outcomes may be improved using the HDL body scale and surgical algorithm presented.

      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Self-reported height and weight is commonly used in medical practice for the determination of body mass index (BMI). Self-reported height and weight can be underestimated or overestimated resulting in inaccurate BMI calculations. In our practice the self-reported height and weight are obtained at the time of cosmetic surgery consultation. The purpose of this study is to determine the accuracy of preoperative height, weight, and BMI calculations in patients undergoing liposuction of the abdomen in comparison to measurements obtained by nursing staff the day of surgery. Clinically, these data may affect perioperative risk stratification and preoperative planning with respect to deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis. Using Nextech electronic medical records (EMR) system, charts were reviewed from July 2019 to July 2022. Patients identified as having underwent liposuction of the upper and lower abdomen were reviewed. All patients had been consented for the prescribed procedure. Data extracted included the self-reported height/weight and calculated BMIs obtained at the time of consultation as well as measured height/weight and BMIs from the day of surgery. The study sample included 50 patients (31 women and 19 men), with an average age of 44 ± 11 years (range, 20-71 years). Time from consult to surgery ranged from 2 to 270 days with an average of 58 days. Time of consult (TOC) height average was 169.1 cm (range, 152.4-190.5 cm) versus day of surgery (DOS) height average of 169.5 cm (range, 149-190 cm). Time of consult weight average was 82.4 kg/181.66 lbs (range, 54.5-115.9 kg/120.15-264.89 lbs) versus DOS average of 84 kg/185.19 lbs (range, 53.8-116 kg/118.61-255.74 lbs). Time of consult BMI average was 28.5 kg/m2 (range, 21.1-43.9 kg/m2) with a DOS average of 29 kg/m2 (range, 20.9-47 kg/m2). Height was on average underestimated by 0.03 cm. Weight was on average underestimated by 1.6 kg at the TOC compared with DOS. BMI difference between TOC and DOS had an average underestimate of 0.5 kg/m2. A total of 8 patients upstaged to a higher obesity classification based on DOS BMI calculation. Subgroup analysis of male and female height and weight estimations versus measured data are also reviewed. When averaged the time of consultation height, weight, and BMI correlated with height, weight, and BMIs measured and calculated the day of surgery in patients undergoing liposuction of the abdomen. Sixteen percent of our study population were reclassified to a higher obesity class based on DOS height and weight. For the purposes of accurate perioperative risk management and deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis planning, height and weight should be obtained accurately at the time of consultation or at a preoperative visit within 1 month of surgery.

      Authors: Lessandro Martins, Juan Martin Zarate, Ibrahim Fakih-Gomez, Nabil Fakih-Gomez
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Brow position is a key feature to define a fresh and youthful appearance of the periorbital region. Frontotemporal brow lift implies the elevation of both the medial brow and lateral brow and can be performed through an open (coronal), endoscopic, or combined approach. While endoscopic brow lift has the advantage of minimal incisions compared with the open coronal approach, it requires specific equipment, a longer learning curve, and has been associated with high recurrence rates. Herein, the authors’ technique for frontotemporal brow lift is presented, an approach that includes complete access under direct vision to the lateral brow and glabellar area, through 2 limited frontotemporal incisions and a novel method of 3-vectoring suspension to the frontal bone. It has proved to be predictable with long-lasting results.

  • Gangrenous Bowel Obstruction Managed With Local Tumescent Anesthesia and
           MAC

      Authors: Ehab Akkary, Brett Tomlin, Mohamed Almoukadem, Barry Friedberg
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Since the mid-1980s, Klein’s tumescent anesthesia has been used routinely in different surgical specialties such as cosmetic surgery, dermatology, vascular surgery, reconstructive plastic surgery, and breast surgery. The tumescent anesthesia technique was developed by Dr Jeffrey Klein, a board-certified dermatologist. The technique was first published in 1987. Tumescent means “swelling.” This technique involves injection of an ultra-dilute lidocaine and epinephrine solution into the surgical planes offering multiple advantages including, but not limited to, postoperative analgesia, reduced blood loss, and avoidance of general anesthesia. The standard liter of Klein’s solution contains lidocaine 1 g, epinephrine 1 mg, and sodium bicarbonate 12.5 mg. Multiple modifications and variations have been implemented and used over the years, an evolution from Klein’s original description. While tumescent anesthesia started in liposuction procedures, its application has now extended into a wider variety of procedures and specialties. In this article, we present a case of tumescent anesthesia in a critically ill general surgery patient who presented with an acute life-threatening surgical emergency. The patient was assessed to be a very high risk for general anesthesia, and after collaborative discussion between the surgical and anesthesia teams and taking informed consent from the patient, the decision was made to proceed with surgery under monitored intravenous sedation with tumescent anesthesia. The patient had an uneventful recovery and survived a very high mortality surgical emergency. He was subsequently discharged back to his nursing home in stable condition. Tumescent anesthesia has become tremendously popular in cosmetic surgery. Tumescent anesthesia allows patients to have surgical procedures in an ambulatory setting, avoid general anesthesia, and allow for better pain control postoperatively. While tumescent anesthesia is used in other specialties, the field of general surgery has not widely adopted tumescent anesthesia. Many general surgeons and anesthesiologists are not familiar with the technique and how to implement it in their practice. It is of utmost importance to understand the pharmacokinetics of tumescent solution and safe implementation. Tumescent anesthesia with monitored anesthesia care is here reported as an alternative to general anesthesia in the care of a moribund patient with multiple comorbidities requiring open abdominal surgery. Close cooperation between the surgeon and the anesthesiologist made the successful conduct of this case possible.

  • Contemporary Upper Blepharoplasty: Volumetric Contouring Concept

      Authors: Nabil Fakih-Gomez, Juan Martin Zarate, Lessandro Martins, Luis Miguel Lindo Delgadillo, Ibrahim Fakih-Gomez
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Upper blepharoplasty has traditionally involved subtractive approaches with excision of different amounts of skin, muscle, and fat. However, this approach often results in iatrogenic acceleration of the normal volume depletion and bone resorption associated with aging, which leads to deepening of the superior sulcus, A-shape deformity and generalized hollowness. In recent years, the concept of periorbital volume restoration and augmentation has shifted the paradigm toward fat preservation and gland repositioning procedures. Herein, we describe the volumetric contouring concept, a contemporary approach for upper blepharoplasty that includes gland repositioning, suspension of the levator aponeurosis, fat transposition or reposition, and adjunctive filling procedures. This concept seeks for long-term restoration of the eyelid-brow complex by addressing every involutional aspect of the aging process, while treating and preventing hollow eyes and A-shaped deformity. In our experience, this approach has enabled us to attain optimal and long-lasting aesthetic results.

      Authors: Ariel Luksenburg, Juan J. Barcia, Jorge Gaviria, Roberto Sergio, Santiago Palacios, Marco A. Pelosi, Marco A. Pelosi
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      The worldwide prevalence of female urinary incontinence (UI) is reported at 55%, and about 27% of UIs are severe. The complications in cases of severe UI treated surgically and the ineffective or incomplete results of prolonged treatments with thermal energies motivated us to develop an innovative treatment. Our hypothesis was based on correcting the descent and/or urethral hypermotility and repositioning the descended bladder urethral junction. We have designed a system for the development of a dense and resistant fibrosis that supports the urethra and can correct the alterations of severe UI, Luksenburg systems procedure, LSG3. A group of 652 women between the age of 46 and 74 years, post-menopausal, with more than 2 vaginal births and severe UI, documented by the clinical presentation and the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Short Form (ICIQ-UI SF) score index, were enrolled. Originally developed polycaprolactone threads were placed in suburethral space using specific designed tools (LSG3). Immediate results—24 hours (P < .05): 469 patients without clinical UI (72% efficacy), 122 patients with grade 1 UI (drops) (18% improvement), and 59 patients with grade 3 UI (unchanged 9%). Thirty-day results (P < .05): 560 patients without UI (86% efficacy), 58 patients with grade 1 UI (drops) (9% improvement), and 34 patients with grade 3 UI (unchanged 5%). Fifteen-month results (P < .05): 542 patients without UI (83%), 74 patients with grade 1 UI (drops) (11%), and 36 patients with grade 3 UI (6%). No complications or secondary effects were found after the procedure in the 15 months of follow-up. We have developed an innovative system called “suburethral spider web” to treat and cure severe (grade 3) UI in office, as outpatient, that is effective, safe, and cheap.

  • Familial Multiple Lipomatosis: A Case Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tatevik Malisetyan, Skylar Harmon, Neng Zhong, Gevork Tatarian
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      A 32-year-old man presents to the clinic with multiple subcutaneous masses. Further history and a review of the literature are discussed. This is a case study of a patient with familial multiple lipomatosis and our management. Liposuction was performed after informed consent was obtained to manage familial multiple lipomatosis in an aesthetically pleasing manner without recurrence. Liposuction is an excellent technique for an aesthetically pleasing outcome to manage familial multiple lipomatosis. Additional therapy modalities including laser, chemicals, high-pressure tumescent injection, and Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance (VASER) are reviewed. To avoid multiple incisions and scars, liposuction for familial multiple lipomatosis is an aesthetically pleasing, definitive treatment modality with no recurrence of lipomas.

      Authors: Elie Akl, Michel El Hajj
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      This manuscript aimed to report a new vertical dome division technique for the correction of different common nasal tip deformities. This technique is a novel approach and was never reported in the literature to the best of our knowledge. The technique was performed using an open approach on 337 patients presenting with a combination of different nasal tip deformities: overprojected nasal tips, drooping tips, asymmetical tips and wide domal arches. The included patients were operated on between 2012 and 2018, with a follow-up period of at least 1 year. A detailed description of the surgical steps used is provided. Surgery outcomes were predominately positive, with unsatisfactory results obtained only in 11 of the 212 included patients (125 patients were excluded from the study due to inadequate or no follow-up). Satisfactory results and minor complications were detected following this procedure. In conclusion the presented technique is an easy and effective method for the narrowing, uprotation, and deprojection of nasal tips as well as the correction of tip asymmetries mainly in thick-skin patients, with a low complication rate.

  • Durable Suture Technique: A Simple and Versatile Nonsurgical Technique to
           Create/Reshape Double Eyelid in Asians

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Peter Sang-Hui Kim, Joon Tae Ahn
      Abstract: The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Ahead of Print.
      Nonincisional double-eyelid plasty, the Durable Suture Technique, is a popular nonsurgical procedure for creating double eyelids on monolids. We report cases where the Durable Suture Technique was successfully applied to other Asian cosmetic eyelid indications. A series of before-and-after photos of patients who underwent the Durable Suture Technique were shown to demonstrate that it is effective in reshaping and rejuvenating the double eyelids, as well as treating post-blepharoplasty complications. The rationale for applying the Durable Suture Technique in the above nonstandard indications was discussed. The Durable Suture Technique is a versatile, nonsurgical cosmetic eyelid enhancement procedure in Asians.
