Rhinoplasty: lessons from "errors" : From anatomy and experience to the concept of sequential primary rhinoplasty.
CONCLUSION: The goal to reduce the rate of revision rhinoplasty and to improve the natural results can be achieved, considering the concept of sequential primary rhinoplasty. Nasal soft tissues are protected as far as possible. The current rhinoplasty concepts are not antagonist but appear as an intraoperative succession of alternative techniques from anatomy and function preservation to reconstruction of the nasal framework.

ConclusionThe use of ARTISS fibrin sealant in external rhinoplasties is a safe and easy method and may enhance patient self-esteem. Larger studies are warranted to either verify or challenge the validity of our findings.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

After a successful tour of the film festival circuit, the award-winning documentary and Orchard Films release,"Take My Nose, Please!" is now available for streaming on all platforms. First time film maker Joan Kron follows two comedians as they consider plastic surgery. Of the celebrity set, only comedians can have an honest dialogue about beauty and the knife.An examination of society's love/hate relationship with cosmetic treatments, appearances by Lisa Lampenelli, Judy Gold, Julie Halston, Aubrey Plaza and clips of Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffen, Margaret Cho (and many others) result in an entertai...
ConclusionPatient satisfaction is preferential in rhinoplasty. In our patient series, patient satisfaction was shown to be correlated with functional outcome but not with surgeon satisfaction. Anxiety was not found to have a significant impact on results of rhinoplasty. Our results should be interpreted cautiously keeping in mind that our patients ’ primary drive for rhinoplasty was functional.
Conclusions The INB and SLB existed in all the specimens and could be found approximately 1 cm below the piriform aperture. The average distance between the INB and SLB was approximately 11 mm. These results imply the feasibility of a cross-nerve transfer of the distal part of the infraorbital nerve.
Conclusion: Findings suggest an increase in the number of surgeons, but the training, scope, and standard of care remain relatively limited. Audit and assessment of the practice should also become points of emphasis.
Some of our patients are total daredevils. This unique population keeps us on our toes. Our weird and wild series recently discussed laceration repair involving tattoos, but problematic piercings also present to the ED.Traditional through-and-through piercing of the tongue body without complication. Photo: Creative Commons.An 18-year-old otherwise healthy woman presented to the emergency department with tongue swelling and mouth pain. Your first thought may be that this is an allergic reaction, but you quickly realize this is not the patient you expected. This patient just had her tongue pierced, and something has go...
A flexible laryngeal mask airway device (LMAD) embedded with 2 pharyngeal suction catheters was used for a young female patient who underwent a revision rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and chin implant. The modified LMAD was constructed by attaching 2 suction catheters onto the back of the mask; it functioned well without signs of malfunction or complications, with a total of 71 mL of blood evacuated from the pharyngeal area during the five and a half hour surgery. The patient emerged from anesthesia without coughing or straining, and reported no sore throat or nausea/vomiting in the recovery room.
ConclusionsThe tip of the nose is the focus of attention for older patients who want to undergo this surgery and require surgical procedures for increased projection and support. Augmentation rhinoplasty plays a fundamental role in the remodeling of the nose in patients over 65 years old.Level of Evidence: Level III, risk/prognostic study.
This article reviews the latest thinking on patient selection, functional indications, aesthetic analysis, and operative techniques in septorhinoplasty, with an emphasis on key cartilage grafting and tip suture techniques.
