FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY CLINICS
Face-lift procedures have always exemplified the improvements that can be provided to patients through facial plastic surgery to surgeons as well as to the public in general. Variations in techniques have evolved through the years with some aspects of the surgery being emphasized and encouraged for periods of time and then to be overshadowed by alternative procedures by other surgeons over various time periods. At this point in time, 2 basic face-lift approaches, coupled with described variations, are utilized and advocated.
A thorough medical history is critical in patient selection for local anesthesia facelifting. Patients with no prior issues with dental procedures and no history of significant anxiety are better candidates. Simplifying local anesthesia mixtures and using dilute concentrations will minimize dosing errors and decrease risk of local anesthesia toxicity. Oral anxiolytics can be used with caution to minimize patient anxiety. Pulse oximetry, telemetry, and blood pressure monitoring should be performed with any addition of oral or IV sedation/anxiolytic. The short-scar anterior facelift is ideal for local anesthesia due to the l...
Facial aging is a multifactorial process with many articles over decades supporting various theories of varying causes. It is generally thought that aging occurs as a combination of changes in skin quality, gravitational descent of tissue with interaction of retaining ligaments on the ptotic tissue, and facial volume loss or the appearance of volume loss. The most significant cause of volume loss is skeletal remodeling and bone loss, which manifests as characteristic shadows and hollows on the face in conjunction with soft tissue changes that are yet to be completely elucidated.
This article describes the nuances of SMAS rhytidectomy, the biplanar SMAS imbrication technique, and adjuvant procedures used. This biplanar SMAS technique has been refined over more than 25 years and has proved to be a reliable and safe technique that leads to high patient satisfaction with minimal complications.
Traditional superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) facelifting surgery uses a laminar surgical dissection. This approach does not treat areas of facial volume loss, and requires additional volume supplementation with fat grafting or fillers. The novel volumizing extended deep-plane facelift uses a composite approach to the facelift flap. By incorporating a platysma myotomy in the extended deep-plane flap, a novel composite transposition flap can be created that revolumizes the posterior jawline, recreating a defined convex jawline of youth. Special attention is paid to the deep anatomy of the face, and the need for r...
Conclusions: This is the largest outcomes analysis of face-lift surgery in a patient population solely representative of board-certified plastic surgeons. Rhytidectomy is a very safe procedure when performed by board-certified plastic surgeons. Nevertheless, risk factors for complications are identified, several of which can be affected by surgeon choice of surgical venue, additive procedures, duration of operation, and type of anesthetic. The study provides a standard reference for professionals when counseling patients and in guiding clinical practices. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Risk, III.
Conclusion: The full regeneration of solar elastosis was obtained by injection of in vitro expanded autologous adipose mesenchymal stem cells, which are appropriate, competent, and sufficient to elicit the full structural regeneration of the sun-aged skin. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.
