Selfies distort face's appearance, plastic surgeons warn

At 30 centimetres away, selfies increased nasal size by 30 per cent in males and 29 per cent in females. At 1.5 meters, however, the proportion of features is to real-life scale, plastic surgery researchers say.

For a multitude of reasons, facial plastic surgeons should be adept and comfortable with nonsurgical rhinoplasty. An intimate knowledge of nasal vascular anatomy, filler choice, and proper placement can make this a safe, effective, and long-lasting treatment. Basic techniques include dorsal augmentation and camouflaging of a dorsal hump. Advanced maneuvers are also possible, including increasing tip rotation and projection, straightening the nose, lowering alar rims, and potentially the improvement of nasal function.

Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1688703The use of the Washio retroauricular flap for nasal reconstruction has been infrequently covered in recent literature, particularly concerning the pediatric population. A retrospective study was conducted between 2014 and 2018 and included all pediatric patients who underwent a Washio retroauricular flap procedure for nasal reconstruction operated on by the same surgeon at a referral center for pediatric plastic and maxillofacial surgery. The mean age at the time of the first stage of the Washio procedure was just under 8 years of age (range: 6 years 3 months–8 years 10 mo...

Nasal obstruction is one of the most common clinical problems encountered by otolaryngologists and facial plastic surgeons. Lateral wall insufficiency (LWI) is a key anatomic contributor to nasal obstruction. Traditional techniques for correcting LWI include alar batten grafts, bone-anchored sutures, and lateral crural strut grafts. Latera is an absorbable nasal implant that can be inserted in the office or the operating room as an adjunctive procedure for LWI. The purpose of this review is to discuss Latera, a novel bioabsorbable implant to improve the nasal airway.

ConclusionNasal analysis is a complex task. A lecture on a systemic approach to facial analysis given to a group of residents, who performed significantly better on facial analysis cases than controls. Further research in providing feedback, periods of rehearsal or testing, or focused selected elements with serial exposure can be considered.

Conclusions The tip reinforcement flap technique offers advantages for tip plasty in those cases with middle crural deficiency, short middle crura, and middle crural weakness. The technique also provides an additional projection, stabilization, and definition to the nasal tip while reducing lateral crural cephalic excess. This technique improves nostril-lobular disproportion and has the advantage of hiding extra support grafted into the folded flap. Complications such as graft visibility, malposition, and asymmetry, which may occur with the use of classic tip grafts, can be eliminated with the tip reinforcement flap technique.

Conclusions Three-dimensional analysis revealed notably decreased pharyngeal and nasal airway volumes in patients with Crouzon syndrome, but nasal bone tissue and soft tissue measurements showed very little change between patients and control subjects.

A Novel Method to Enhance Dynamic Rhinoplasty Outcomes: Double "V" Carving for Alloplastic Grafts. Ear Nose Throat J. 2019 May 09;:145561319840110 Authors: Bai SS, Li D, Xu L, Duan HC, Yuan J, Wei M Abstract Augmentation rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in Asia. Most Asian patients desire not only a natural-looking nose but also a nose with natural feel. Achieving such rhinoplasty outcomes with grafts has been a challenge for surgeons due to rigidity of grafting material. We propose a novel technique to address this limitation. A total of 200 healthy...

Bob Ensor didn’t see the boom swinging violently toward him as he cleaned a sailboat in dry dock on a spring day two years ago. But he heard the crack as it hit him in the face. He was transported by ambulance to an in-network hospital near his home in Middletown, N.J., where initial X-rays showed his nose was broken as were several bones of his left eye socket. The emergency physician summoned the on-call plastic surgeon, who admitted him to the hospital and scheduled him for surgery the next day. Shortly before surgery, the doctor introduced Ensor to a second plastic surgeon who would assist in the 90-minute proced...
