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.

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 The syringe was immediately withdrawn while aspirating and prompt salvage counter-measures were taken, including application of warm compresses, vigorous massaging, oral administration of aspirin,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...

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 ...

Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1670647A key concept in successful rhinoplasty surgery is maintaining or increasing tip support, and addressing tip projection and rotation. The tongue-in-groove (TIG) technique is a method to achieve this goal using sutures to create a strong connection between the septum and medial crura to change tip rotation and projection. Criticisms of this method include that it may cause stiffness of the nasal tip and columellar retraction. TIG is routinely used by the authors during anterior septal reconstructions (a modified extracorporeal septoplasty technique), as well as in primary and rev...
