Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1672176Facelifts remain a critical part of a facial plastic surgeon's cosmetic practice. Techniques continue to evolve, while at the same time patients demand less invasive procedures with less morbidity. The authors present a facelift plication technique using wide purse-string sutures placed into the superficial musculoaponeurotic system and platysma. This is a retrospective review with a level of evidence 3 set at a medical spa and tertiary referral center designed to assess a purse-string suture technique using an inner followed by an outer purse-string, with refinements being made...

AbstractAlthough the importance of volume loss in the aging face is now well recognized and fat grafting has increasingly become an integral part of contemporary facelift procedures, general acceptance of the fat grafting technique is a relatively recent occurrence and many surgeons reluctance to adopt the technique can be traced back in part to questions they have as to how loss of volume contributes to how the face ages, how to specifically recognize those changes, and questions they have about how to perform the fat grafting procedure to correct them. In this article we attempt to answer the questions “why perform...
Background: Parry-Romberg syndrome is an enigmatic craniofacial disorder characterized by progressive facial atrophy. The pathogenesis and molecular mechanisms governing Parry-Romberg syndrome have never before been described. The purpose of the current study was twofold: (1) to begin to elucidate the pathophysiology of this disease using next-generation RNA sequencing and (2) to evaluate the effect of surgical treatment on gene expression. Methods: Patients with Parry-Romberg syndrome underwent microvascular free tissue transfer to the face to address contour deformity in both active and burned out disease. Tissue sa...

Complications are an inherent occurrence in surgery. In rhytidectomy, many complications are avoidable with thorough preoperative assessment and optimal intraoperative and postoperative care. Nevertheless, complications do occur. In certain situations, avoidance of risks is the best way to decrease the occurrence. Once complications do occur, there is a large body of literature to aid in the correction.
This article reviews the techniques of mandibular angle contouring, genioplasty, chondrolaryngoplasty, facelift, and neck lift as they pertain to the feminization and masculinization of the face and neck of the patient with gender dysphoria.
A description of the deep structures of the neck that are responsible for submandibular fullness and a systematic surgical approach to reduce them are presented. The structures susceptible to surgical management include the subplatysmal fat, inter-sternocleidomastoid origin fat, anterior belly of the digastric muscle, hyoid bone, submandibular gland and the tail of the parotid gland. A thorough analysis of the key anatomic landmarks of the young and attractive neck is detailed in resting and dynamic positions. A clinical classification of parotid reduction in the face lift/neck lift patient is also presented.
