To the Editor: Although safe use of oral retinoids with dermabrasion and resurfacing laser procedures have  been reported in patients on isotretinoin, waiting 6-12 months after isotretinoin cessation is typically recommended before undergoing elective surgery.1,2 This recommendation arose from theoretical concern and from 9 prior cases (6 dermabrasions, 3 laser procedures) of delayed wound healing or keloid formation after cosmetic procedures in patients on isotretinoin.2,3 We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of scarring and postoperative complications in patients exposed and not exposed to is...

Publication date: Available online 8 June 2017 Source:Burns Author(s): Eric L. Maranda, Mindy X. Wang, Shahjahan Shareef, Bryon A. Tompkins, Christopher Emerson, Evangelos V. Badiavas Burns are a common and sometimes devastating injury causing a significant amount of pain, disability, and occasionally death. Burns can have serious aesthetic and functional consequences such as pigmentary changes and formation of scar tissue. Hypopigmentation or depigmentation is often a result of partial- or full-thickness burns, which is referred to as leukoderma after burn. Thus, this study is aimed at systematically reviewing the surgic...

Facial plast Surg 2017; 33: 299-310 DOI: 10.1055/s-0037-1602742Facial aging is a combination of descent of facial tissues, atrophy of fat compartments, bony remodeling, and chronological and photoaging changes of the skin. A rhytidectomy will address the aging changes due to gravity on facial tissues but will do little to improve skin texture, thickness, and pigmentation. To address collagen loss, rhytids, and dyspigmentation, surgeons are incorporating resurfacing techniques including carbon dioxide/erbium ablative and fractionated lasers, 35% trichloroacetic acid chemical peel pretreated with Jessner's solution, phenol 8...

Early tangential excision of the burn wound is essential for removal of necrotic tissue and promotion of burn wound healing process. However, the depth of the burn wound is not easily assessed during the tangential excision performed by hand-held dermatomes, and it may be possible to excise unburned vital dermis unnecessarily, which aids in primary epithelization of the burn wound by adnexal structures. We herein present early clinical results of steel wool-aided dermabrasion in patients with deep partial-thickness burns. This is a retrospective case study of 23 consecutive hospitalized patients with deep partial-thickness...

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA; also known as trichloroethanoic acid) is a corrosive agent that can produce significant burns when applied topically to the skin or mucosal membranes [1]. This property underlies its use in numerous dermatologic and gynecologic procedures including wart removal, chemical dermabrasion, and ablation of pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions of the skin and genitals [2 –4]. In otology, TCA is used topically to help small tympanic membrane (TM) perforations to heal and to calm granular myringitis; it may also be useful in the treatment of acute external otitis [5,6].

Facial plast Surg 2017; 33: 009-016 DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1597949The rise in cutaneous malignancies over the past 20 years has led to significant advances in reconstructing the nose from an aesthetic and functional standpoint. The principles of nasal reconstruction center on application of the nasal subunit principle, three-layered reconstruction, nasal skin characteristics, and patient factors. Reconstructive planning starts with proper defect analysis, followed by application of the reconstructive ladder for soft-tissue repair, adequate structural support, and repair of nasal lining deficits. Optimal reconstructive methods...
