Delivering on its objective of presenting common reconstructive techniques for Mohs surgery defects, Facial Reconstruction After Mohs Surgery provides an organized, thorough overview for management of the post-Mohs patient (Figure 1). In giving a comprehensive text, there is a myriad of information ranging from basics of skin grafting to the intricacies of nasal reconstruction. The authors of the textbook are from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, an institution nationally renowned for its plastic surgery and dermatology departments.

The visibility of cartilage grafts underneath the skin is a complication of rhinoplasty particularly in patients with thin nasal skin. Preparing the graft with optimum dimensions, symmetry, and smoothness is crucial for the fine crafting of the cartilage to prevent visibility. The camouflage of the visible cartilage graft with a crushed cartilage, a resected cephalic portion of the lower lateral cartilage, fascia, connective and/or fatty tissues is another option for hiding the visibility. The nasal tip is the most common location where the graft visibility is of concern. The authors introduce the smoothing of the cartila...

The comparison of patient satisfaction with the use of diced cartilage graft wrapped in fascia (DCF) graft in composite versus dorsum augmentation-only reconstructions (DAOR), technical hints and complications in our series, affecting the end-result and the patient satisfaction (PS) has been presented. Between 2013 and 2018 the DC-F graft is used in 32 rhinoplasty cases. Nine of patients have had composite reconstruction (CR). The DAOR has been needed for 23 of patients. The follow-up period has been 2 months to 3 years. The authors have obtained satisfactory results in 24 cases but some untoward progress in 8 cases. A q...

AbstractIntroductionIn rhinoplasty operations, concavity and convexity have a particular place in terms of aesthetic and functional problems. To fix the problems associated with concavity and convexity, several techniques were reported for straightening of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC). The scroll ligament and its associated tissues can be preserved, and a better nasal tip can be obtained after the surgery. The purpose of this research is to present a new, more comfortable and more practical technique to overcome the problems associated with LLC.MethodsThe records of 190 patients who were operated on with this novel te...

We describe a revision rhinoplasty case where hypoperfusion of the nasal tip was seen following placement of structural grafts to the nasal tip, and before the grafts being removed SPY, angiography was used to evaluate if topical nitroglycerin alone could correct hypoperfusion of the nasal tip rather than removal of structural grafts. A SPY angiography was performed to evaluate the hypoperfusion to the nasal tip. Repeat imaging was then performed following treatment with topical nitroglycerin alone. Perfusion of the nasal tip was restored and confirmed by SPY angiography system. The objective findings from the SPY angiogra...

CONCLUSIONS: PDS plates have been used in the United States and Europe for more than 10 years to provide a scaffold for the nasal framework. These plates can provide reinforcement to columellar struts, L-struts, and septal extension grafts. In addition, they can assist in deformity correction. Therefore, PDS plates can be considered a good adjuvant material for Asian patients with weak and small nasal cartilage. PMID: 30934180 [PubMed]

Conclusion The results of the study reveal a new objective variable that can impact nasal tip dynamics and patient-related differences following rhinoplasty. This study not only brings forth a different perspective in the evaluation of nasal tip dynamics but can also provide data for determining ideal values for cartilage prefabrication.

A rhinoplasty, or nose job, is surgery performed to alter the way your nose functions and looks. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 220,000 rhinoplasties are performed yearly, making this the most common facial plastic surgery procedure. Rhinoplasty can simultaneously help you improve breathing and achieve a more balanced appearance. Is rhinoplasty right for me? A common medical reason for rhinoplasty is difficulty breathing through the nose. Nasal obstruction can cause problems with exercise, disturb sleep, contribute to snoring and sleep apnea, or interfere with other activities. If medical tre...

This report describes the replacement of the bony and cartilaginous nasal dorsum after resection with an anatomically shaped dorsal replacement graft of diced cartilage in fibrin glue. The technique is illustrated with a clinical case and sonographic morphometry of the nasal dorsum and tip. A modification of the diced cartilage glue graft for thin-skinned patients is presented.

Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1675632The main purpose of this article is to present an alternative technique for the reconstruction of saddle nose deformity in patients with severely scarred or contracted soft tissue envelopes. In this single surgeon case series, the authors present a two-staged reconstruction performed on four adult patients with saddle nose deformities and contracted soft tissue envelope stemming from a variety of etiologic factors including vasculitis, sarcoidosis, and trauma. Stage one involved placement of a 1 × 4 cm tissue expander along the nasal dorsum through anterior s...

Nasal reconstructive techniques have advanced significantly over the past 50  years. Modern techniques in nasal reconstruction are based on the nasal aesthetic subunits. In order to achieve ideal outcomes, reconstructive surgeons must consider differences in tissue qualities across the nasal aesthetic subunits and formulate reconstructive plans based on these differences. L ocal flaps, skin grafts, and several types of interpolated flaps comprise the most commonly used techniques for nasal reconstruction. Defects that involve structural or internal lining defects require reconstruction of significantly higher complexity.
