Distortive effects of short distance photographs on nasal appearance: The selfie effect
(Rutgers University) Nasal distortions in selfies taken at close range are prompting people to seek out surgeons to make their noses smaller. Such was the experience of Rutgers facial plastic surgeon Boris Paskhover, who worked with a Stanford mathematician to develop a model to show patients how much their nose becomes distorted in close-up photos. The model is published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.
This Surgical Pearl presents the tongue-in-groove technique in rhinoplasty surgery for controlling tip projection and rotation.
Voice change may happen after upper airway manipulation. The current study aimed to evaluate voice change after open rhinoplasty.

AbstractA 47-year-old female patient undergoing hyaluronic acid injection in the glabella region suffered intravascular injection leading to marked discoloration (whitening) of the whole angiosome of the supratrochlear artery, extending to the areas of the anastomoses to the left upper eyelid, the dorsum of the nose, and the left sidewall of the nose. The syringe was immediately withdrawn while aspirating and prompt salvage counter-measures were taken, including application of warm compresses, vigorous massaging, oral administration of aspirin, repeated injections of hyaluronidase, and application of nitroglycerine paste o...

FRIDAY, Sept. 14, 2018 -- For patients undergoing rhinoplasty, postoperative opioid refills are extremely rare, according to a research letter published online Sept. 6 in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery. Rosh K.V. Sethi, M.D., M.P.H., from Harvard...
Conclusions and Relevance Our study presents a newly discovered IN of FEEM. This IN can cause hypertelorism when the nasofrontal type could not. Preoperative 3-dimensional computer tomography scans are very helpful for surgical planning.
Conclusions The combination flap is a simple, single-stage procedure useful for reconstruction of heminasal and lateral wall defects. This technique is easily reproducible and provides consistently good results.
AbstractBackgroundIn Asian rhinoplasty, a septal extension graft can be used for both tip projection and derotation of the alar cartilage. However, patients often do not have enough harvestable septal cartilage to create the septal extension graft. We therefore devised a method with which to fix the derotated alar cartilage with a small amount of septal cartilage.MethodsFrom January 2012 to December 2016, 23 patients underwent short nose correction with a septal half extension graft made of septal cartilage and were postoperatively monitored for at least 6 months. The alar cartilage was completely separated from the ...
